The most obvious change is a contoured rear wing which is permanently fixed by long stantions. This was probably motivated by Top Gear and Jeremy Clarkson who requested a larger wing to steady the car during its second visit at the show. Beyond the wing, only detail changes such as uncovered headlights, color-coded carbon fiber and new suede seats are fitted.
Underneath the skin, the CCXR remains largely unchanged, but we now know that the Bio Fuel V8 produces 1018 bhp @ 7200 rpm which is good for 250 mph and 0-60 in 2.9 seconds.
Pricing is 1 500 000 EUR.

My first appreciation of cars came when my first boss took me for a drive in an old air-cooled Porsche 911 in Sydney. I don't remember what model year it was, but I do remember I became addicted to all things automotive from that day onwards. I’m an enthusiastic car nut who geeks out over tuned supercars, obscure classic race cars, automotive memorabilia and just about anything else car related.
