…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Koenigsegg Edition?

Koenigsegg Edition

When a car already has 1018 horsepower and runs on E85 ethanol, it’s hard to top it, but Koenigsegg has done just that with the CCX and CCXR Edition.

The aim of the Edition is to “deliver superior performance – on the track, in a straight line and on country roads – and to do so in style and comfort.”

Both are fitted with the 4.8L twin-supercharged engine, and have been track-tuned with modified shock absorbers, stiffer springs, anti-roll bars, reset dampers, and a lowered chassis.

The carbon fiber bodies have also been enhanced for additional downforce with an optimized rear wing, front winglets, and a larger front splitter and nolder, all left in raw carbon fiber form so that you can appreciate their beauty. And because it’s raw carbon fiber, “each individual section of carbon fibre bodywork has been painstakingly matched and then joined together inside out like a tailored suit, to create a stunning pinstripe effect. The process is so time-consuming that it takes almost twice as much time to create the clear-coated visible carbon body compared to the normal painted carbon CCX body.”

The interior features special anodized aluminum trim and a redesigned Koenigsegg Chronocluster and center console to “conform the Edition’s exclusive status.”

Want one?

Get in line, because only 14 of the CCX Editions will be made, though that’s more than enough when compared to the six CCXR Editions that will ever see the light of day.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren?

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren

The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is no newcomer, but the guys from Germany have recently created a few more options for their well-intentioned (and well-heeled) buyers.

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722

If you’ve got the need for speed, the new 722 Edition takes out any of the street left in this supercar, and replaces it with pure race.

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Engine

The supercharged, hand-built 5.5-liter AMG V8 now puts out 650 horsepower, the suspension, now 10 millimeters lower, features a stiffer damper configuration, and the brakes, now larger, ensure that you can bring everything back into reality just a little bit quicker. Visual changes include a new front spoiler with air splitter, a rear diffuser, and a collection of carbon fiber for that sporty look.

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster

If the plans for your SLR don’t include daily trips to the track, but you still want something different, then drop the top on the new Roadster edition, and hit the highways in style. The roof, made of a newly developed material, is good to go at 206 mph, and lowers in just 10 seconds; perfect for an impromptu photo session with the paparazzi. Even with the top down though, Mercedes claims you can hold a conversation at 125 mph, which is great for complimenting your passenger on their newly styled, wind restyled hair.

Sidepipe exhaust, gills, propeller nose, and suave sophistication are all still standard.
