Move over "new" GT40, here's Mr Koenigsegg

If you think the New GT40 is something special, wait till you slap eyes on this mother.. supercharged 4.7L Ford engine!! More power, torque, and less weight. Looks better than the new GT40 as well IMO!



I can't really do the car justice with my dribbling, just download this segment taken from the UK's Top Gear tv show... needless to say, they give it a right workout! Well and truly worth the download!

I thought it would look like a little plastic sh!tboxes, because most of them do, but that is damn dead sexy!
655BHP at only 1175kg, hahah thats a joke? WHat sort of power to weight is that - it must be close to that of a motorbike?

I saw the concept on Supercars.net ages ago. What a nice car. It's also been in MOTOR a few times.

The factory burnt down for koenigsegg, they are in the process of rebuilding it. I think there are only about 12 of the actual cars on the road from memory. Its not as big a seller as they hoped.

No, the Koenigsegg is actually from the same land as Volvo's and Saab's if I'm not mistaken...

Willy Koenig is the guy who owns the Koenig that do the twin turbo f50 and a host of other insane cars... I think he's german...
