@Yatsik, Yeah But from stockholm to Helsingborg (where the factory lies) is a 6 hour drive, me on the other hand, live 45 minutes from the factory, as soon as I get a drivers license, that will be my first destination :D
Aaron Crisp Oct 01, 2012
You from Vegas too supra? I need to go down there and check it out!
supra_mkiv Oct 01, 2012
I saw a ccx at the Lamborghini Las Vegas dealership a few years ago it was awesome
Jon Wheel Oct 01, 2012
Oh no I live across the country in PA. I only went there for car week in August, and yes it's my favorite place in the world!
Read Mills Sep 30, 2012
Carmel is the most beautiful place ever! You are quite lucky to live there!
Jon Wheel Sep 30, 2012
@Aaron In Carmel, California. Matte white with blue stripes. Pretty
Dillon Magee Sep 30, 2012
Yes! Best news I've heard all day. Not that ill ever be able to afford one...
Yatish Wentink Sep 30, 2012
Hektor you live in Sweden than you have to go to the factory ones just to see them, ask them of you may see one. I live in the Netherlands haven't seen a koenigsegg yet but I know we have one here (I'm praying to see one some day)
Thibault Leroy Sep 30, 2012
Seeing one in a dealership or at a carshow does count...
Hektor Yberg Sep 30, 2012
In the same small country
Hektor Yberg Sep 30, 2012
I live in Stockholm and I still haven't seen even one =( but the chance of me seing it in Sweden is extremely small because there aren't really any rich people in Sweden while there are in USA so you have a bigger chance if seing one then me who live
Jon Wheel Sep 30, 2012
Already saw one on the street in America...yay me
William Downs Sep 30, 2012
@brain... Ok but if one goes missing dont worry just takin it for a detailing that will take 20+yrs to complete I promise
Brian Johnston Sep 30, 2012
William ill be buying three so just come to Chicago and you can see them.
Maynor Pineda Sep 30, 2012
Yeah i might get to see one here
John Serely Sep 30, 2012
I agree willam, a show or at a dealership doesn't count
William Downs Sep 30, 2012
And idk about u guys but I don't count seeing a car at a car show as really seeing one, feels like I'm cheating when I claim them, gotta see it on the street where they belong
William Downs Sep 30, 2012
Yes now I have a better chance of actually seeing one of these monsters in person
Emil Creed Kleijsen Oct 01, 2012
@Wyatt, I might have to kill you for that statement, sorry "/
Shane Carroll Oct 01, 2012
Wyatt have you ever seen a catfish? Ever?
Maaz Khan Oct 01, 2012
Best car in the world IMO! 1.5 mil is the cost I think for base
Wyatt Gordon Sep 30, 2012
no the Pagani looks like a spaceship. this looks like a catfish that's had a cindreblock fall on it. and the paint scheme on this one looks like a tennis shoe
Anthony Sanderson Sep 30, 2012
Damn these cars look so futuristic and amazing. How much is one?
Isaac Rezkalla Sep 30, 2012
And what I mean with Bugatti is the looks. And maybe even the speed in the right conditions
Isaac Rezkalla Sep 30, 2012
@waytt if Bugatti can't be this and Ferrari can't be Bugatti what makes you think the f70 will.
Shane Carroll Sep 30, 2012
The Pagani looks more like a catfish than anything
Shelby Cassandra Sep 30, 2012
@Wyatt. Have you ever seen a catfish? I see no similarities between the two.
Carlton Salmon Sep 30, 2012
@ William. Which statement?
William Downs Sep 30, 2012
That statement was hilarious
Shane Carroll Sep 30, 2012
Yeah, I'd take this over any other supercar on sale today.
Matt Piccolo Sep 30, 2012
This thing is absolutely Amazing! I'd take it over any Ferrari or pagani
Wyatt Gordon Sep 30, 2012
Ferrari's new F70 will be much better than this flattened catfish. and even if it isn't (but it will be), Pagani will still destroy this ugly thing
William Downs Sep 30, 2012
I would do unspeakable things for it, then talk about the unsaid things I did to get it
Zack Hartman Sep 30, 2012
I would do unspeakable things for this
William Downs Sep 30, 2012
Nothing Ferrari builds will sway me from this monster
Aaron Crisp Sep 30, 2012
Best looking hyper car!
Carlton Salmon Sep 30, 2012
My current favourite hypercar. Porsche, Ferrari and McLaren will have to come up with something pretty special to change my mind.

Aaron Crisp Sep 30, 2012
Yeah definitely, I would love to take an R1 or Busa and top it out!!
William Downs Sep 30, 2012
I wanna do that race on my bike or in my pickup when I'm done with it
Aaron Crisp Sep 30, 2012
For those who don't know the Silver State race is an open race on a shutdown 90 mile (140 km) stretch of public road.
Aaron Crisp Sep 30, 2012
You think someone would enter their hyper cars in the Silver State race here in my state, Nevada. Then again I think full roll cage and what not is required after like 125 MPH class lol
Aaron Crisp Sep 30, 2012
Yep during the Gumball 3000 in 2003. There are some sweet videos on YouTube of the Gumball guys going crazy on public roads. Haha
Justin Routh Sep 30, 2012
@Shelby yes he holds the record for a speeding ticket. 242mph in texas lol
Hektor Yberg Sep 30, 2012
Aaron@ wasn't that how the worlds biggest speeding ticket was given? In a ccx in Las Vegas? Or veyron in Texas?
Dan Rather Sep 30, 2012
Yeah some guy in Texas got a 242 mph speeding ticket which is the world record.
Shelby Cassandra Sep 30, 2012
@Aaron. Didn't someone do that with the CCX?
Aaron Crisp Sep 30, 2012
Wait until some young rich guy takes it on a public freeway trying to hit it's top speed... Lol
Curtis Clayton Sep 30, 2012
Sorry guys my bad
Andreas Köhler Sep 30, 2012
USA is part of North America aswell..
Joel Samfors Sep 30, 2012
@ Curtis. Its the same thing. Sweden is a part of Scandinavia. It's a old name for the region.
Bobby Junior Sep 30, 2012
Sweden is part of Scandinavia
Curtis Clayton Sep 30, 2012
Scandinavian? No it's Swedish
William Downs Sep 30, 2012
When they find a road long enough and in good shape, as it stands vw owns the only track it would be possible on at the moment but not starting that argument up again
Carter Sullivan Sep 30, 2012
When are they actually gonna figure out if this thing can hit 273 like they claimed?
omarSV Sep 30, 2012
I love these alloys but everytime someone sees one on the road, it has the standard Agera R 'propellor' style alloys. what a stunning beast.
Cory Allen Sep 30, 2012
Red is where it's at!
Colby Church Sep 30, 2012
@Dhruv I hope by "any car" you mean any current stock production cars. But on this car, I believe red has to be my preference.
Matt Piccolo Sep 30, 2012
Awesome! Love that shade of red
Stefan Shand Oct 11, 2012
To beautiful i want to own one so bad
Ryan Rainville Sep 30, 2012
It holds all kinds of records I wish they would put up a ring time because I think it could take down the Apollo and be the fastest track car in the world
Dillon Magee Sep 30, 2012
My favorite car in my favorite color. New wallpaper time...
Nick Schnee Sep 30, 2012
Best car. Ever. Period.
Daniel Eads Sep 30, 2012
I would take the Huayra over this, mostly because of the interior.
William Downs Sep 30, 2012
Carlton these are an optional solid one piece carbon fiber rim, personally I like them better then the stock rims but I like both
Carlton Salmon Sep 30, 2012
Haven't seen these wheels before but don't like them as they look rather cheap looking for a car of this quality and capability. My favourite wheels are the polished turbine designed wheels.
Jon Wheel Sep 30, 2012
This is much better than a Huayra, I promise you
Carlton Salmon Sep 30, 2012
I would have the Huayra over the Veyron but this over the Huayra. It's perfect in every way apart from the white edging on the wheels.
Justin Di Nardo Sep 30, 2012
Nice but Huayra please!
Ryan Rainville Sep 30, 2012
Way cooler then the venom gt huayra Veyron and just about anything that can compete
John Jenkins Sep 30, 2012
really really like this
Maynor Pineda Sep 30, 2012
I wanna own one so bad!
Shane Carroll Sep 30, 2012
I'm not a fan of white interiors, but the whole tron-lighting they got going on is pretty BA
Wyatt Gordon Sep 30, 2012
I have to admit, I do like Koenigsegg's interiors better than anyone else's. but the exterior is still ugly to me
Carlton Salmon Sep 30, 2012
Looks great but I'm not a fan of white interiors.
William Downs Sep 30, 2012
.... Really? It says it on the article title, in the article it's self and if u look in the picture it says the manufacturers name on the steering wheel and the cars name on the dash
Corey Mullis Oct 01, 2012
i just had a trouser accident
William Downs Sep 30, 2012
Mmmmm carbon fiber rims
Carlton Salmon Sep 30, 2012
Great looking interior with a real sense of occasion.
Mark Donnelly Sep 30, 2012
in joy god damn my phone is messed up today
Mark Donnelly Sep 30, 2012
the seats are cry
Maynor Pineda Sep 30, 2012
It has a very nice interior blue my fav color
