Wouldn't that be a hell of a drive!
Koenigsegg claims that customer demand has led them to produce a limited edition version of its CCX and CCXR supercars. They'll be called - get this - the Koenigsegg Edition CCX and CCXR. Pretty creative, huh? Regardless, we all know Koeni cars have the goods to defend their funny names with peerless performance. What makes these Edition models truly special is, of course, more power thanks to a bump in displacement for Koenigsegg's V8 from 4.7L to 5.0L. When fitted with its pair of superchargers, the Edition CCX produces 888 horsepower (up from 806 HP) and the CCXR that can also run on E85 ethanol produces the same 1,018 horsepower as the standard model. Both the Edition CCX and CCXR actually have similar performance figures according to Koenigsegg, each running to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. Keep the pedal to the floor, however, and the CCXR with its higher octane fuel will begin to pull away from the CCX, eventually topping out at 250+ mph.
