  1. For the CCX Koenigsegg has there own engine. They didnt use Ford.
     
  2. it is their own engine but the engine block was taken from Ford and then modified.
     
  3. This car kicks ass.
     
  4. How much weight does it save over a set of pure magnesium rims?
     
  5. just 6-8 kg
     
  6. and how much are they? like $3,000 a piece?
     
  7. No, I mean, shut up, I was talking about an EB with carbon fiber wheels, but yeah, I guess thoser were aftermarket.
     
  8. Has everyone forgot about the Citro´┐Żn SM during the 1970ies and the RR- rims?
     
  9. Maxi, they were aftermarket replica EB110 rims made of CF.

    SuperCarFreak posted them here like.... a year ago. right?

  12. AFAIK it is a factory option, but I wouldn't doubt if it came standard with CF wheels, if only I can remember that initial press release...
     
  13. considering that is ~20 pounds (my conversion is bad) that is a lot in the world of Warren Mosler. His thing is for uber light cars. Mosler's next car really could be something else, and the MT900 is already pretty damn awesome.
     
  14. Yeah, the only difference is that when the Japs usualy copy and reverse engineer something, they make it better.<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
     
  15. Roughly.
     
  16. I rather have a FF GTM.
     
  17. the totals are 20 lbs less up front 22 in back for a total of 42 lbs less wheel
     
  18. they did in the CC8S...
