Cars don't get much faster than the Bugatti Veyron and Koenigsegg CCXR. You want to go any faster, you'll need a top-fuel dragster or a Bonneville land speed record machine. That's why the two have been at each other's throats for as long as they've been around.

While the two insane supercars may seem similar on paper – two seats, mid-engine, 1,000 horsepower, stratospheric pricetag – their approach could hardly have been any different. One was the sum of all of an industrial giant's considerable resources, the other the project of a start-up with a dream.

So which is faster in a straight line, the all-wheel-drive heavyweight or the rear-drive sprite? Somebody somewhere put the two together and raced them from a 60-km/h (37 miles per hour) rolling start all the way up past 310 km/h (192 mph). Follow the jump to see how it went down.

      FAIL Thats not a CCXR, its a CCXF (CCX). i would know cuz Im pretty much the biggest Koenigsegg fan on the planet, also if you pause the video @0:15 it clearly shows it. The cars are not sync from a rolling start, terrible race.

      So basically the fastest car in the world is - the fastest car in the world. In other news the sky is blue, water is wet and I'm a smart a$$

      "Somebody somewhere put the two together and raced them..." This is the The Moscow Unlim 500+ that you guys reported on a year ago. How do you not know this?

      I can't really call the Koenigsegg a loser. They both look like a blast to drive.

      So, did anyone NOT think the Bugatti was going to win?

        I thought the Koenigsegg would win. I knew if this was a zero-whatever, Bugatti would have it off the line cause of awd. but i thought the lighter weight from 60 would make a bigger impact, especially with similar power...

          The CCX has far less torque which is important for higher speed acceleration.

      Bugatti drivers don't always break the law. But when they do, they smash it into little bitty pieces.

      So yeah, drag race, 1-0 to the Veyron. Now I'd like to see the heavy fat Bugatti get round Suzuka faster than the Koeingsegg can. I'd say the CCXR would destroy it. Never liked the Veyron. A fat and heavy car only designed for the straights.

      I'd take the Koenisegg over the Bugatti any day....it looks a lot better plus there's no crazy hype with all the special editions. I would rather own a supercar only true car enthusiasts know about instead of having all of the media talking about it and being featured in rap songs.

        There's five different types outside of the stock CCX including the one that was customed built and talked about by almost everyone in the industry.
