    It's a rumour, but its likely to happen considering how the CC concept was had a V12 engine. That would be sweeeeeet!!!! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    They are going to make a version with a flat 12. The flat twelve was designed by a formula 1 engine designer but was never raced. Koenigsegg bought the rights and plans to produce it. They may also used the engine in the Koenigsegg LMP to race at Le Mans.

    I've surfed a bit and found numerous sites telling the CC had a V12. These sources are rather reliable, as opposed to some infamous car-pages. But they wrote as if the car would have this V12 by now, which it doesn't.

    But the engine is said to have 500 HP @ 9000 rpm. This would be the highest revving engine in any Road car today which supports EliseS2's information on a formula one style engine.

    Ya a V12 would have alot more hp and would probly be able to go faster but it is also heavier, a bigger gas hog, and a lot less efficent. So if there getting this kind of perfomance out of a Ford V8 i think this engine is just fine.<!-- Signature -->

    Exactly!!! Both the Ultima GTR and the Saleen are also amongst the top supercars in the world. V8's are fine and are strong enough to support loads of bhp and torque.<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    I think it's remarkable what koenigsegg did with the measely Ford Cobra V8, they took and engine that produced 320bhp and massaged it to produce an awesome 655bhp. Plus this engine is now uniquely a koenigsegg engine, bored to 4.7 liters and has different heads, only the block remains Ford cobra
