if a car does 0-60 in 0.002sec the driver s eyeball will blow
Ryan Faber Feb 23, 2013
if only my brain worked on another level like Mr. Koenigseggs...
Andrew McNeal Feb 23, 2013
How about nuclear powered hyper warp drive? 0-60 in .0000001 sec!
Stephen Cobbs Feb 23, 2013
Im thinkin a V8 with dual turbines.
Joe Robinson Feb 23, 2013
Great idea for the company to take a different approach to the supercar market! Way to show their potential!

What a beaut!

GTR isn't a sub 2 second. It's a sub 3, just like the Veyron. No stock production car is sub 2 seconds. And before you argue, Sub 2 sec=1.999 seconds and down.

Chase and Will are talking sense, that's like saying the GT-R is faster than a Veyron (which for 2 seconds off the line, it is, but after that the GT-R is stuffed). Which car wins in a drag race: Koenigsegg or GT-R? That's what matters, 0-60 times are just numbers, they don't mean anything. Especially with a car that can do 250mph.
Chase Fecko Feb 24, 2013
With koenigsegg, it's not its 0-60 time to compare. Compare the 0-200 times.
William Downs Feb 24, 2013
Koenigsegg has over 1000hp and is rwd, gtr is awd with less then 600 can't imagine why bit has a better 0-60 of less then a second ... Why are u so dumb... Do u ever think before u post shit... Ever?

This year at SEMA, Comp Cams released their quad profile cam. It is said to be a game changer in the public market. This guy says screw cams, and does away with it. Now he can have any kind of profile he wants out of it. Ingenious.
Nick Schnee Feb 24, 2013
It appears that some reatrded people need to compare the GT-R to EVERY SINGLE car out there. Really, I wonder why there haven't been "teh gtr is way bettr than tis" comments on articles about, say, the A4.
Angelo Baclay Feb 24, 2013
Gtr has 4wheel drive. Stupid bitch
Claudio Komba Feb 24, 2013
Genius.
Eric Dare Feb 24, 2013
@jack. Yah the gtr is only a tenth of a second faster. And the agera had a top speed way higher than your precious gtr
Felix Rhett Feb 24, 2013
@Jack if 2.9 seconds isn't a great 0-60 time, than I don't know what is.

BMWs new 4 cylinder doesn't use a throttle body. The injectors take care of idle and acceleration. Pretty cool tech.
Chase Fecko Feb 23, 2013
Yes CCX thanks... Dam auto correct...
Andrew McNeal Feb 23, 2013
Chase, you mean the CCX?
Chase Fecko Feb 23, 2013
My favorite top gear review is when Jeramy drove the cox. Ever since then I loved the koenigsegg cars.
Andrew McNeal Feb 23, 2013
I can see Koenigsegg being the first manufacturer to put out a sub 2 sec 0-60 production car.
Austin Sullivan Feb 23, 2013
I wish I was him. What a great man. And yeah, the next car he puts out is going to destroy anything.
Marco Tomaselli Feb 23, 2013
There is no other car company that impresses me as much as Koenigsegg does. This man is doing great things in the car industry and he's only 40! What else does he have up his sleeve?
William Downs Feb 23, 2013
That man is a genius, he is truly dedicated to making the best car, and his contined and rapid development of the tech for his cars proves that... There next model is gonna be down rite rediculious
Jon Ashley Feb 23, 2013
give this man a nobel prize! I've read about some camshaft alternatives and its nice to see some serious development in the works.
Alan Manuel Holguin Salas Feb 23, 2013
I came
Jacob Burford Feb 23, 2013
This looks sleek and striking! Very good looking car!
Austin Bride Feb 23, 2013
Huayra I can agree on though
Austin Bride Feb 23, 2013
The Zonda was pure beauty and is not awkward in any way.
Paulo Benjamim Feb 23, 2013
Que espetáculo de carro... Muito estilo!!!
Andrew McNeal Feb 23, 2013
The cars from 2015 and on will be a whole new level of fast.
William Downs Feb 23, 2013
Car is a sexy carbon fiber rocket ship of pure automotive lust... The car that replaces the Agera is gonna be a whole new level of fast
Wyatt Gordon Feb 23, 2013
This car has grown on me so much, I never thought I'd say this, but this is actually one of my favorite modern hypercars. Good job Christian, Ive been converted.
Julian Pilinci Feb 23, 2013
Every time I see this car the more I like it.
Jon Ashley Feb 23, 2013
I have to agree, the huayra is beautiful, but it looks awkward at some angles.
Adam Thomson Feb 23, 2013
This looks fantastic, much better than the Huayra.
Joe Robinson Feb 23, 2013
Black rims look great on this model
