Video: $4.8 Million 1018HP Hypercar Test Drive Footage

During a period in the 1980’s, the focus began to shift from muscle to super cars. Having a large wallet helps if you want to collect super cars, and the launch of the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita Supercar proves this.

Coming with an insane 1018HP as standard, this monster is definitely classed as a hyper car. Brought out in 2006-2010 in the CCX edition, there were only 49 manufactured. The Trevita supercar edition? There’s only three available on the planet.
