Koenigsegg Hinting at New Records with the CCXR

Swedish Auto Motor & Sport today published a video interview with Christian von Koenigsegg.

He talks about the new Koenigsegg CCXR and CCGT. Without mentioning any specific numbers, von Koenigsegg says that it is likely that the 1018 bhp CCXR will boast record acceleration. (How come? 🙂

Why can’t he just give us the numbers?! 😀 I guess what everyone really wants to know is – will it beat the Veyron’s top speed?

He also says that the car will run on both E85 (85% ethanol, 15% petrol) or normal petrol, which was new to me, and that they’re hoping to race the Koenigsegg CCGT in Le Mans, if they manage to qualify.
