Lovely looking car. I've never been a fan of Brit cars, but obviously that's something quite special! I can't see more than a couple being made per year though!

I'm not sure I like the styling, but any idea if it's priced like a Bugatti Veyron?

The SSC Ultimate Aero TT isn't finished yet, so it hasn't proven anything. The prototypes that have been tested have gotten terrible reviews.

The CCR isn't as fast or as extravagant as the Bugatti...nor is it backed by a big company who can lend out many test examples or do other promotional things for a car that big money can get. The CCR or SSC doesn't have the Veyron's awesome transmission either. Also, there has been some form of the Koenigsegg out since 1998 I believe. It has become old news to some, while the Veyron is a completely new vehicle.

The Bristol Fighter T looks ugly. You should show more angles to show everyone the horribly boring looking shape. It isn't elegant or lovely at all...to me at least. But I am GOLDEN.

and this is where it started!

I think its great looking car! although very bulbous, it is one of the most aerodynamic cars around with a drag co-efficient of 0.25! the old Audi 100 estate had less drag than that though! (just a random fact)
the top car is a fighter T, the others are standard fighters

The koenigsegg ccr set the speed record in 2005 at 249.3 mph, BEFORE the veyron and it did it on a CIRCULAR TRACK while the veyron did it on a 9km straightaway.


I take the CCR any day over the veyron, and for much less $$



BTW: The SSC looks bad in the sense that it has like a 42/58 weight distribution, but in terms of raw power...what compares?

Everyone knew the Veyron was coming to break the record, and it did like a month later....so no one respected the Koenigsegg's record.

Rear-biased weight distribution is ideal. ALL of the great supercars have a weight distribution close to 40/60. 50/50 isn't considered to be the best by high performance car designers.

That's ok you can stick my fat ass in the front and bring it back up to 50/50

In what car? In a car such as the Koenigsegsegsegsgegsggegsgsggsg or Veyron, you don't really need much more weight at the rear due to the engine layout and would need more at the front where possible. Of course it would be a bit different in a car with the engine at the front. Oh, and we spell 'tires' as tyres, lol.

Love the sig by the way, Jamie/Gregg....It took me a while to notice the sidelights, lol
