Don't know why this hasn't been posted here, it freakin looks awesome!
Info back from Feb, 9th
February 9, 2006 Less than twelve months ago, the Koenigsegg CCR was the most powerful and fastest production car in the world, having just achieved a top speed of 388 kmh (Caution: large WMV movie) , raising McLaren's mark of 372 kmh set in 1993 by a whopping margin.
Prior to the CCR, the company’s CC8 was the world’s most powerful production car and the Swedish company has a proud history of creating brutally powerful roadsters. Then Bugatti finally put the long-awaited Veyron into production in October last, and it immediately became the world’s fastest (407 km/h), most powerful (987 bhp), most torquey (1,250 Nm at 2,200 rpm) and most outrageous (16-cylinder engine with four turbochargers and that’s just for starters) production automobile in automotive history.
But like the Viking warriors from which they descended, the folks at Koenigsegg haven’t conceded just yet and the company sent us this image and a quaint invitation to the launch of a new car at the 76th Salon International de l´Auto in Geneva. Be afraid … be very afraid.
It’s caused a stir around here. What will Bugatti do, with all the might of the Volkswagen empire behind it, should Koenigsegg manage to usurp the crown it has regarded as its rightful inheritance. Watch this space.

You brought back a thread from 5 months ago for that little tid-bit of info, huh. BTW, capitalization and punctuation are your friends.
