Click on the image above to see more images of the Koenigsegg CCXR

Koenigsegg has released some full-on shots of the production CCXR -- probably a new one, and not the 1-of-a-kind CCXR crashed by Top Gear. The biofuel-powered car has a twin supercharged 4.8-liter V8, and will put out 1,018-HP at 7,200 RPM, and you'll get 740 lb-ft of torque out of it.

And if you want to break those numbers down, you'll get from the stoplight to 60 in 2.9 seconds, and the good Swedes claim you can take it past 248 MPH. However, in order to make any use of those numbers you need to first get past this one: €1,575,000, plus taxes and fees, to take it home. Check out the gallery of pics below, and check out the full specs on the car after the jump.

      i just don't see the appeal of this company's cars...i really love that they aren't just a design studio, using other engines and chassis and just putting designs on them, but rather making everything from the ground up. however, their cars are just ugly, i really don't like how they look. if you're talking 1+million euros, i'd go for the lamborghini reventon or the bugatti veyron before this car....

      nice car ... crappy computer renderings

      €1,575,000

      At that price I'll buy two! :-/

      O well, I'm sure they'll sell a few to someone.

      Can someone tell me the purpose of a twin supercharger? I can understand a twin turbocharger, but I don't know what the purpose is for a twin supercharger.
        • 7 Years Ago
        No, they're running two centrifugal superchargers, not one twin-screw. They're probably running one per bank for the bearings' sake.

      Sub-zero cool

      I'd rather have a Honda NSX. Speed is starting to bore me! Give me finesse!!
      • 7 Years Ago
      For that kind of money I would clone myself or something...
      • 7 Years Ago
      all that and it will run on E85?
      well, sign me up. anything I can do to help the environment.

      to steal from Automobile Mag, MEAN and Green.

        the wing is kinda ugly....
        • 7 Years Ago
        Wow Terence...thanks for the deep thought there.

        I mean, who cares that your comment has nothing to do with the OP or the fact that the wing probably has a little more use than the one bolted to your Civic's trunk lid.

        To the OP...amazing car and runs on bio-fuel. Suddenly makes needing food, clothing, housing, etc seems so secondary. Time to save some pennies.

      Heaven
      touched
      Earth.


      I was really hoping for some glamour shots though, these pics leave a bit to be desired.

      So... how come i've never come accross a "spy shot" article about this? and why does the car look uglier than a regular CCX? weird post
      • 7 Years Ago
      I love Koenigsegg, but these pics make the car look like a block of wood. And the color is depressing.

      More horsepower than the Veyron but 0-60 in only 2.9? Sounds like it needs AWD.

      I wonder if it still uses the 4.6 mustang engine as its base as it did in the last two models...
