Question

I don't see where else to ask this on this site so I'll post it here...anybody ever heard of Koenigsegg? I swear, I have playing this game for a long time and have absolutely never ever heard of these guys...they apparently do, and have for a while, exist...this blows my mind.....

They only sell something like 8 cars a year, so maybe not so surprising. One doubts they need magazine road tests to generate interest in their cars.

Jeremy Clarkson dorve one on Top Gear not too long ago. Not a very nice looking car in my opinion, but very, very fast!

Of course if you really want to go fast you need a Bugatti Veyron. ...... That is if you have some spare loose change lying around.

Speaking of Top Gear and Veyrons, I just saw a video where Richard Hammond drives a Renault R25 F-1 car. The first comparison he made was with the Veyron, since that is the fastest car he's ever driven.

The Veyron's power to weight ratio is 535 HP/ton. The R25 clocks in at 1500 HP/ton.

Things pretty much go downhill from there.
