I liked it when it was in the Ford GT40 too
Kinda weird that it would get more horsepower from higher octane. Generally the lowest octane that you can run at max compression without the fuel detonating will give you the best performance. If it was possible that the engine had a fancy way of adjusting the ignition timing, air temp, as well as half the engine with different fuels then it would make sense.
Edit: Yeah... didn't realize this had all already been discussed
you're such a douche.

this koenigsegg guys arent gonna fool me ,america make the best engines in the world , most kids arent going to agree on that , but for your info , most v8 engines built all around the world believe it or not are based in american design, american engines have the best architecture and are built for durability and using a long piston running distance for high torque helping to develope low rpm to make hp diferent from ferrari engines that need to rev the engine high to make hp , and most kids think this as an atrribute because they dont know a bit of what they are talking about , because when an engine revs high it gets very stressed , thats the reason why no body use f1 engines on the street, because they need to rev too high to make hp and in a weight of a normal 2000 lbs car the engine woudnt do much , and it will last days if not hours lol, and silly kids put f1 engines in top of the world,, f1 engines only belong to the track , this engines are like a toy that you can play with, european engines in general will never ever hold up in a recistence contest vs american engines + american ones are so much cheaper and ironically so durable , and the reason is obvious , it all has to do with rpm abuse , ,example lets see a tall guy walking next to a short guy the tall guy takes an step while the short one had taken 2 steps , and then whom is gonna get tired first, of course the short one, in this case the short one is the ferrari, thats why you see so may ferraris at a shop, getting fixed,american engines do the same job at half strees, there isnt a question to be asked about durability issues when we talk about european and american engines , aamerican engines will always last longer, so koenigsegg beieve it or not still is using ford base racing block for their build they just wont accept because of their arrogance, for instance the senvo ST1 another dinamarca supercar that its turbo and supercharged at the same time it uses a SBC LS engine for your info the very best v8 engine worldwide ever built and get mad if you want to i dont care, and they also kept quiet when jay leno asked them for the engine precedence lol hey im not american but we have to agree here , that anythig from the USA is well built and not just car engines , anything
I believe Ethanol or flexi fuel engines will be the future for supercars as guzzling large amounts of bioethanol is more politically correct than guzzling fossil fuels.
