ok, apparently I am rusty also. That is the replacement for the CCX, its called the Koenigsegg Agera, but specifically that is the Agera R. The R is the special edition that runs on biofuel.




"Performance

The Agera R can accelerate from 0–62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds and reach a theoretical top speed of approximately 275 mph (442.569 km/h), making it faster than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, although this has not been officially verified. On September 2 during test sessions in Ängelholm the Agera R broke six world land speed records for a production car, including 0-300 km/h (0–186.4 mph) in 14.53 seconds, surpassing the previous record of 14.6 seconds set by the Bugatti Veyron. The Guinness Book of Records is yet to confirm the results, although all data was measured and collected by a third party with the officially accepted Racelogic VBox performance recorder.

Engine and Transmission

The Agera R will use an in-house developed 5.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine which produces 1100 bhp at 6900 rpm and over 1000 Nm of torque from 2700 to 6170 rpm. The engine is capable of running on multiple fuel types and for countries that do not offer the Bio-fuels, the Agera R is able to run on normal 95 octane fuels, but power output is cut by about 100hp and 100 lb-ft of torque. Gear changes are made using a 7-speed paddle shift transmission, incorporating an e-diff.

Exterior

In order to increase the performance aspect of the Agera, Koenigsegg developed a dynamic rear wing. Many supercars use wings that lift automatically at high speeds, but the systems they use to do so are often cumbersome. The wing on the Agera R uses the pressure of the wind created at high speeds to force the wing downward and reduce wind resistance. The system is not only lighter than conventional hydraulics, but also smarter since it is able to compensate for headwind or tailwinds instantly. The design is thought out so well that even the pylons holding the wing up are useful. They are shaped in a way that helps to extract air from the engine bay towards the rear of the car.

Brakes and suspension

The 19-inch aluminum wheels at the front house 397mm ceramic brakes with six-piston caliper, while 380mm ceramics and four-piston calipers sit behind the 20-inch wheels at the rear. Painted around the edges are dedicated Michelin Supersport tires with a speed rating of more than 420km/h. The Agera R can produce lateral cornering forces of 1.6 g, thanks to grip from the Michelin Super Sports and a setup focused on cornering speed. In comparison the Veyron Super Sport touches 1.45 g. The chassis and suspension setup on the Agera R are equally as important as any other aspect and the owner of the company personally helped developed this new system. Koenigsegg calls it the Triplex rear suspension; this means that a shock absorber and spring are connected to each rear wheel. Each wheel is capable of having an effect on the other and the extra spring works in series with the normal suspension and dampers that allow the car to be raised or lowered as needed."

I thought the CCX looked different, but I figured the way these 'experts' reacted, that I was wrong. Either way it's not a 430 lol.
