America’s ’bad boy’ sports car, the Corvette ZR1, is pretty fast in its own right, but sometimes, even the fast is no match for the faster. Putting the ZR1 in its place is Sweden’s super bullet, the Koenigsegg CCR Evo, which, to be honest, is just about head and shoulders faster than a lot of cars on the planet.

Despite the proverbial long chances of the ZR1, it doesn’t stop it from throwing the gauntlet at the CCR Evo. Bad move, buddy. While we enjoy a pretty good drag race every chance we get to see one, we didn’t enjoy this one for the competition, but for the way the CCR Evo just about wiped the tarmac with the ZR1.

Sweden 1, USA 0.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Nurburgring times are like EPA estimates, taken with a grain of salt. Besides 99% of both cars owners aren’t going to either care about ring times nor drive their cars at the ring. The only type of people that the ring times really satisfy are the fan boys.

They both have oddly sloping roof lines. I think if Nissan styled a mid-engine car, it would look something like a CCR. Not beautiful, nor are they meant to be. They aren’t ballerinas, they are cage fighters!
