 Invision Power Board -> Review: Koenigsegg CCR   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Ever since I have been a huge fan of Koenigsegg and their CCR is currently my background on my laptop.
Before the CCR, Koenigsegg had a few prototypes (the CCD and the CC) and a production car (the CC8S) however, none of these can compare to this automotive achievement.
The CCR doesn't have one of those tacky "erector set" wings, Koenigsegg actually spent alot of time developing an intergrated spolier to aid downforce yet not upset the sleek design.
