Koenigsegg CCX around LVMS Roadcourse Video
#1312519 - 09/05/06 05:32 AM

Sorry, not a Contour, but thought people would like it:

104mb, 720x480 resolution:

Justin Bell ('97 FIA GT2 & '98 Le Mans GT2 champion) driving. Unfortunately, he was told not to take it on an all-out run for fear the owners & potential owners would try to emulate him.

If I was ordering one, I'd have to get black.

I was just going to comment on the lack of a TG Wing... dunno if you wanna toss it around too much without one. heh

It did have the wing.

However, Top Gear made more of the wing than it actually was.

Koenigsegg has multiple configurations available. The wing (which has been optional in every model including the CCX, CCR, CC8S, etc) actually does little. It does add some downforce at the expense of top speed.

The biggest 2 changes between the first and second Top Gear show were:

1. They adjusted the suspension/chassis for less oversteer.
2. The Stig didn't screw up the corner (yes, he is mortal and does make mistakes).

Overall, the Koenigsegg is amazingly easy to drive. Believe me, that means a lot coming from a novice driver like myself.
