MPH 2008 in the UK will feature the Bio-fuelled 759kW Koenigsegg CCXR Edition and the 484kW Pagani Zonda F Carbon. Plus Top Gear Live for the first time.
MPH fans will be extremely excited to learn that the ultra-exclusive Koenigsegg CCXR Edition and Pagani Zonda F Carbon will feature as star attractions at the upcoming MPH Show in the UK. On the 30th October these two heroes will grace UK soil, packing in total a mind-numbing 1668 bhp, with both costing a frosty £2.17 million together.
Fuelled by biofuel, Koenigsegg CCXR Edition counts such victims as Ferrari Enzo, Porsche Carrera GT and Bugatti Veyron with its crushing 2.9 second time from 0 – 100km/h. Using a twin-supercharged 4.8-litre V8 for its 1018 bhp/ 759kW, the car is capable of 254mph-plus top speed runs.
Going down continental Europe from CCXR’s Swedish home to Italy, we understand a Pagani Zonda F Carbon will also feature at MPH. That particular meteor uses a 7.3-litre V12 engine of 650bhp/ 484kW to post a 0 – 100 time of 3.6 seconds and a top end of 214 mph. The Italian stallion features a lifting system to cope with uneven roads and possibly extra-naughty speed humps. Give it to Top Gear again for their everyday test drive at the mall, see how it does. Speaking of TG, the show will broadcast its first Top Gear Live segment at the MPH, and audiences will be able to come within a breath of hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.
