    which vid is that ?
    the Top gear one ? or the one of the others floating around.

    The top gear one is a good one, I reccomend the download.
    its about 44 megs and shows some interesting stuff about the car.

    another good one is the vid off the koenigsegg website, about 90MB and gets more into detail on how the car became what it is.

    either way, the car is insane.
    ive been reading up about it and gathering info a quite some time now.

    theres a topic about the koenigzegg on "the local halifax car site" right now. vids and pics were posted there.

    I have 4 vids and a shit load of pics on this car if anyone wants them.

    lots of info and stats on there website too
    http://www.koenigsegg.com/index.asp

    enjoy

    good post btw, Alot of people never heard of this car, good to show people that its not all Enzo this and Mclaren that.
    even if the Mclaren and Enzo ferrari are both crazy amazing supercars.

    Funny jon.

    Actually debating if it was the fastest car in world, which it still has yet to be proven, the crown is still held by the mclearn f-1 (top speed that is)

    There are people over at the other board who actually know a thing or two, other then their thinking there civics could beat it.

    Clarkson didn't say it was the fastest car in the world though, he said it was the fastest ROAD car in the world.
