Supercars also seem to be leaning towards environmental-friendliness these days. These are the first renderings of the Bugatti Veyron fighter by Koenigsegg which was announced earlier this year and runs on biofuel.
The Koenigsegg CCXR Special Edition will be powered by a 4.7 liter cast-aluminum V8 turbocharged engine with sequential multipoint fuel injection and twin rotrex centrifigual superchargers. The E85 biofuel, combined with a higher octane rating, allows the CCXR Special Edition to produces 1,018 horsepower.
The Koenigsegg CCXR Special Edition has the ability to go from 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 248mph. Of course that all sounds fine and dandy, but this baby will only get a combined fuel-economy of 10.7mpg for a price of 1.5 million euros.
