Christian von Koenigsegg, founder and CEO of Koenigsegg, goes behind the wheel in a showdown between the CCXR and a Bugatti Veyron on an old airstrip in Ängelholm, Sweden. But there's a twist, Koenigsegg's driving the Bugatti. Koenigsegg's CEO was confident about the CCXR's 4.7 L V-8 with 1,018 hp and 740 lb-ft of torque. However, even he wasn't quite ready for the power from the Veyron's 8.0-liter W-16 with 987 horsepower and 922 lb-ft of torque spread across four wheels. Watch his head snap back as he hits the gas.
