Ah, Sweden. The world thanks you for your delicious foods and contributions to music. However the world (literally, the planet Earth) owes you a kind word of gratitude for your latest achievement, the exclusive Koenigsegg CCXR. It’s a luxury magazine top pick for ultimate dream cars.
Those familiar with Koenigsegg’s CCX supercar, should grasp this quickly. In a nutshell, you’re still getting everything that made the CCX a dream car icon, only now there are some earth friendly fuel alternatives.
The amazing thing about this nature friendly Bentley rival is how it utilizes fuel. Specifically, the CCXR can be fueled by E85 and E100 Bio-fuel, as well as 98 octane petrol. Here’s where the fun starts. If you were zipping around in your CCXR with a tank of standard petrol, your engine output would be about 806 horsepower. Now if you fill up on E85 Bio-fuel, your number of horses jumps to a beastly 1018.
Here’s the method behind the madness. The CCXR’s 4.7 litre twin supercharged engine burns E85 and E100 Biofuel with a significantly greater efficiency than regular petrol. E85 has a higher internal cooling capacity and overall octane rating, allowing the engine to operate at a higher compression, with increased boost pressure and greater spark advance (as compared to the standard CCX). On top of all these positives is the fact that exhaust temperatures remain the same between both models.
While the planet itself would no doubt be impressed with these stats, let’s talk about how fast the CCXR can blaze across her surface. Converting from metric speeds, the CCXR’s 0 to 60 mph speed clocks in at 3.1 seconds, with a 0 to 124 mph time of only 8.9 seconds! With a top speed in the 250 mph ballpark and a 60 to 0 mph breaking distance of 32 meters, you’ve got enough stop and go to make even Mother Earth blush. Talk about the ultimate driving machine, sorry BMW.
For those who enjoy the sports car world and luxury lifestyle, this is the must have dream car to park in your garage. Its sleek lines are simply perfection, and the way it hugs the road is mesmerizing. Add this exclusive exotic car to your collection of Maybach and Ferrari’s. It’ll fit right in.
Ultimately, with the CCXR, you’re getting a lot more bang for your buck. And all of the flare you love about the CCX carries over to the CCXR. Factory paint jobs can be as loud or as intimidating as you prefer, with a variety of interiors to boot. In short, there’s a reason Forbes named the CCXR one of the top ten most beautiful and most expensive cars in history. So if you’ve been craving to splurge on a CCX, what are you waiting for, pony up for a CCXR… for the planet’s sake, of course.
