A one-off $1.5 million biofuel powered Koenigsegg CCXR has been crashed into a ditch. The 760Kw mega supercar was crashed while travelling between photographic locations for Top Gear.
No, it wasnâ€™t Jeremy, James or Richard driving but none other than a senior engineer from Koenigsegg who was provided with the car to ensure it returned in one pieceâ€¦after the Stig and Peter Grunert from Top Gear had their turns behind the wheel.
The Koenigsegg hit a highway cone at 193km/h which sent it spinning into the ditch shown in the picture. Luckily both the driver and passenger were uninjured. Minutes before the engineer had removed a rear venturi to fit a camera and Peter Grunert estimates that this single modification would have reduced rear down-force by 100kg at the speed they were doing.
The underside of the Koenigsegg was reportedly a mess with all four corners shattered (carbon-fibre) and one of the wheels was completely destroyed. Peter Grunert believes they got off lightly consideringâ€¦
