Anyone heard of a make called Koenigsegg???

Hey guys,
I was browsing the Net today when i came accross the car make which i have never heard of before. Here are the Pics i found:





Here are the specs:

Heres some suff from their site: The Koenigsegg developed suspension system, modeled
from Formula One racing, has been judged by expert test-drivers to provide better handling than any competing supercar. Its supercharged engine delivers 655 horsepower and a torque of 750 Nm.

The design of the CC creates an impression of strength
and flowing motion, and perfect aerodynamics have been achieved without compromising this aggressive beauty. A hardtop roof-panel, which is easily removed and stored
under the front hood, covers the luxurious interior. The
leather and aluminum fitted cabin incorporates all the top
equipment for comfort and security.

To find out more about this pretty damn good car, just view their web site: http://www.koenigsegg.com/index.asp

Regards.
Scott

Re: my pics of the Koenigsegg

who hasnt heard of koenigsegg is a better question......
i mean, it rivals a mclaren f1 and f1 lm, it beats every ferrari ever made ( unless you want to debate about the enzo and its marvelous 1g+ skippad results and cornering abilities it has). it is by far the cheapest supercar on todays market as in what you get for performance and value for money.
if you pictures of the cc8s i have a heap!.

I don't know about some of those things you said in that post, but there are a lot of people who never heard of Koenigsegg. It is not a very well known manufacturer.

Re: Re: Re: my pics of the Koenigsegg

The ZZII can kick it's ass! Yes, the car is nice, but a Turbo V-8 is no good against a Twin Turbo I-6, with 700HP the ZZII uses an RB26DETT engine (Skyline engine) and is just as aero dynamic, and it has AWD.

EB Veyron 16.4... I don't think they released an official top speed but it does 0-60 in 2.9. I believe this will be the fastest...

the top speed of the Bugatti 16.4 Veyron is 250MPH = 400KM/H and it isn't released yet !

so for now the Koenigsegg CC 8S is the fastest !
