Bio Car: 0-100km/h in 3.1 seconds!

I'm a big fan of super cars in that I dream of buying something outrageously expensive one day that will cripple me every time it needs a service.

I stumbled upon a company today called Koenigsegg - a small, low volume super car manufacturer - who recently announced a version of their flagship CCX car, called CCXR. Apart from being a beautiful beast it's being touted as the first green super car. It runs on Biofuel and actually has better performance than the CCX hitting 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds!

While a small company such as Koenigsegg will not have a huge impact on global C02 emissions it goes to show you don't need to sacrifice performance to go green and the large car manufacturers could be doing a lot more to reduce the C02 footprints of the cars they produce.

You can be sure this beats hell out driving a Prius on a Sunday afternoon!
