New F60 Vs Koenigsegg CC 8S

Discussion in '2002 Koenigsegg CC 8S' started by Ferrariplaya, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. It looks like these two cars are the contenders for the fastest road car of all time.
    I reckon that the figures for the Koenigsegg quoted here are a wee bit on the conservative side, as it is now a lot lighter than the model it replaces (which already performs exactly the same as a Mclaren F1)so it must be faster. The new F60 is speculated at having acceleration of 0-60 in the 3 second area. Top speed wise they are also going to be very close.
    I think the Koenigsegg will have the faster top speed (as Ferrari are said to be aiming at around 230 mph) while the Ferrari will have the better acceleration. Around the track too I think the Ferrari will have the Koenigsegg beaten purely due to Ferrari's racing knowledge - they'll be able to hone the chassis better for the track.
    What do you guys think?<!-- Signature -->

    i think we better wait and see what Ferarri will produce and test the the 2 cars against each other, instead of speculating. we will never know how one would fair out in a top speed or around a track until we see these 2 cars in action.

    The F60 mnost likely will not be able to match the top speed of the CC 8S or the F1, because Ferrari claims that though a very highspeed is easily attainable, they have nothing to prove. They don't want to create a war for top speed, since as we all know, it will never end. Ferrari is concentrating on acceleration and handling. So it is most likely to be a mix of the Modena (with its 1rst class incredible handling) and the F50's lightweight F1 driving technology.

    And by the way, the McLaren has been able to reach 391 kph, so that 230 mph crap isn't true. It still better than Koenigsegg. However, this car is still amazing, especially since it's a V8.<!-- Signature -->

    The ferrari would probably win on a track because of the better acceleration and handeling they are focusing on. The top speed isn't really a factor on a race track, it just sounds impressive and lets the ultra-rich owners brag.

    But both cars are what I like to call a Joygasm.

    I agree with Shaneyxlr8 that we should wait because Ferrari has claimed that the F60 will be light, have very nice accleration, and that it will handle like a dream. But Koenigsegg has also claimed so of the same also. So i think that we'll just have to wait to see the two future king's of the street to battle it out on the track. But of course you cant forget about the new Lamborghini, ya i probly wont compete with these two cars but you still gotta love it.<!-- Signature -->

    Ya, aesthetically speaking the F60 spy car is ugly and I sure hope that they DO NOT produce it with that appearance. The CC is breathe-taking!!! <!-- Signature -->

    The F60 looks ugly right now because ferrari is trying to hide what the final car will look like. I have seen a new picture below, of a red one that looks a little better. but I still don't think that it could look better then this beautifulcar. we already know this car has great handling, and being ferrari, the F60 will have good handling. there both as fast as hell, we'll just have to see what the F60 can do before we decide.<!-- Signature -->

  13. Re: New F60 Vs Koenigsegg CC 8S

    We will have to wait. You can't say either can win before seeing them both in action. This is the best car since the Mclaren in my opion. Someone explain why this car have two different makes of tires please. It has Goodyear's on the back and toyo's on the front.<!-- Signature -->
