Rural Canadian Wins Koenigsegg CCX, Has No Road To Drive It On

Louie Edgi, a cancer patient currently residing in the horribly frigid area of Norman Wells, Canada, has won the Cash and Cars Lottery, which supports the Alberta Cancer Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society.

Edgi opted for the cash while belting out possibly the most un-Jalopnik statement in the history of the world by saying, "The car is a Swedish make; it'll do 400 kilometres an hour.
