Koenigsegg CCXR Biofuel Car Breaks 1000HP [Green With Envy]

medium_2065119877_7fed706df0_o.jpgWhen most of us think biofuel, we think imperfect solution granolamunchingmobiles. But the Koenigsegg CCXR supercar just changed our minds. Featuring a lightweight, cast-aluminium V8 engine, this bad boy of biofuel can go 0-100kph in 2.9 seconds, cranking out 1018 HP at 7200 rpm and 780 lb/ft of torque at 6100 rpm. These drollworthy specs are actually made possible by E85 biofuel's higher octane rating and (better) cooling properties. Now just to land the 1.5 million euros to bring one home...
