The environment isn’t the first thing you think about when talking about supercars. But by utilizing conscientious and forward thinking strategies, Koenigsegg has managed to create a Bio Fuel Powered supercar, the Koenigsegg CCXR.
It is environmentally friendly that provides spectacular performance than the standard CCX. It is true that the very low and exclusive production volume of Koenigsegg can be seen as having a measurable impact on the CO2 problem that we face. It still is an impressive statement that even a small company like Koenigsegg can afford to develop environmentally focused solutions.

On the other side, we do not know yet how the competition will react, knowing the fact that the octane value (way over 100) has increased the value of the car at 1018hp. Although the Nordic team did not officially reveal what this data will mean on the road (the car has a torque of 740 ft-lbs at 6100 rpm), there is no doubt that the CCXR has the potential to go way under 3 seconds from 0 to 60 and break the 250 mph threshold.
Following the long-term strategy of Koenigsegg, all previous CCXs will have the possibility to be converted by the factory to use biofuel. The CCXR Biofuel upgrade has been developed in-house on the factory's engine dyno by the skilled technicians at Koenigsegg, led by Christian Koenigsegg, Marco Garver and Anders Hoglund from the Koenigsegg partner company Cargine Engineering.
