Koenigsegg CCR, Koenigsegg is a Swedish company started by a guy called Christian Von Koenigseg, a self made engineer who was inspired to make a super to beat the legendary Mclaren F1.

It uses a supercharged version of the ford mustang's modular V8 to produce around 800 bhp.
On 28th February 2005, at nardo test track in Italy, it blitzed to an incredible 388 kmph, beating the F1's record. This also was done in a curved circular track, which means a bit lesser seed than the actual capapbility will be recorded, whiole the F1 did it on a 5-mile long straight road.

He also got the liscense to prodiuce about 5-10 units of a flat-12 engine for a few very exclusive cars, but I dont know what happened about that.

Hope that sortof answered your question.

Cheers,
islero

The Veyron was on Top Gear this Monday!
That's one engineering marvel.... It's a beauty....
JC had some nice comments to make! It was not like anything he had ever driven... and he ended saying that it was a feeling of "Hollow Victory"... Veyron was something that would probably not happen again anytime soon.

The Bugatti Veyron has just overshadowed everything else this year. It's pretty much the ultimate supercar today.

I know everyone calls it an engineering marvel..it might just be one from the heart..but the surface..is plain ugly..i mean it looks like an obese american..more like a truck...an engineering marvel like that was more suited for a car like the murcielago, FGT, CGT, Enzo, S7, Zonda but not that ugly looking design..and now Audi seems to be following on the same design lines with the crappy looking R8/R9 or whatever they are going to call it..

why oh why dont they look at the wild world around and see what futuristic sports car should look like..

sorry but in my opinion its not a car I give top points to..

I think the bugatti veyron is the best super car of all times..... considering by its sheer power and its specs...... and will probably not have a rival for some years to come, as the Volkswagen built it just to see if was possible to do so. and no other company is willing to waste so much of its resources into building a super super car

I disagree..but to each his own..the veyron is an awesome machine but to name it the best of all times..I would not agree..it doesnt have anything exotic about itself if you just look at the exterior..an all time top supercar needs to score a 11/10 on all counts..something like the F1 did..or may be the CGT/Enzo/Zonda F do..

anyhow..Lamborghini might be thinking of 1000hp version as well..but since they are primarily owned by the same parent company it really doesnt count..so yeah no one is insane enough to make a production 1000hp machine..I think that kind of performance could have been achieved without the 1000hp..and I think S7 tt is as close to that as you can get with sort of sane figures 750hp..
