Before watching this full mile Russian drag race video it wouldn't seem unreasonable to think a supercharged 700hp Corvette Z06 racing a 1000+ horsepower Koenigsegg CCRX would surely result in a Swedish slaughter fest.
Earlier this month, Shanghai opened its Formula 1 circuit for its SIC Club Challenge, something that translates through Google as "super running carnival." With more than 500 supercars looping the track, the name sounds entirely apt.
Watching ordinary cars make dyno runs isn't always the most entertaining thing on the planet, but as this video quickly reminds us the Koenigsegg CCX is anything but an ordinary car. The run may be short, but hearing this CCX's engine revving and seeing it's exhaust flaming is undeniably sweet.
How many supercars can you spot in this brief video shot on the streets of Monaco by a BMW driver enchanted by a Monotracer? It's like the world's wealthy villains decided to convene in a convention center.
It's the concentration of batshit among the modest cars that makes Geneva such a fun show. Geneva's where we first laid eyes on Count Von Koenigsegg's sleds. This year, the Count showed up with the Agera R. Eight-9-10! 1099hp!
Proving that you can find almost any vehicle you want on Ebay if you give it enough time, here is a slightly hotrodded 2008 Koenigsegg CCX. Evidently the owner decided 806hp in a 2600 pound package just wasn't enough.
Driving a Koenigsegg CCXR on the Autobahn is stuff of gearhead fantasy. One lucky guy was nice enough to videotape it for the rest of us, including the sound of that epic 4.7-liter V8 at work. (Hat tip to M2M!)
In April, the Qatari royal family forked over $2.3 billion to buy Harrods, the UK department store. Now they'll fork over $800 in fines to remove boots from supercars worth $2.3 million two family members illegally parked out front.
The Ford Granada is the unsung hero in the company's portfolio. It's completely unassuming, largely unknown, and capable of accepting any drivetrain a Mustang can swallow and more. Here, some nutter has put a Koenigsegg-style, 1700-hp twin-turbo V-8 in one.
Bored of the deluge of perfect photographs pouring out of motor shows? We’ve taken some old and strange film cameras to Geneva to show you another side of cars. Well, of supercars anyway.
Koenigsegg has just revealed its new supercar, the Agera. It's a Challenge Stradale-style track version of the Swedish firm's 1000 HP hypercar.
Supercars continue to get faster and more exotic, but there's little evidence to suggest their drivers are getting any better at driving. We've been keeping score. Here's the 30 most expensive cars that crashed in 2009 (that we covered).
If there’s one photographer whose pictures of cars approach the lofty heights of art, it’s Richard Morris.
