( autoinsiderne ) - Koenigsegg has revealed its two new supercars, the CCGT race car and the ethanol fueled CCXR, that will be unveiled at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show.

The first car is the CCGT race car, which is based on the production CC-model range. In the name of racing regulations, the CCGT is powered by a 600-hp engine based on the Koenigsegg production engine. The race engine has had the superchargers removed, but has been bored out to 5.0L. Koenigsegg has to add weight to meet minimum regulations.

Koenigsegg will also unveiled the ethanol-powered CCXR, which delivers even more spectacular performance than the standard CCX with its 1018-hp and 780 lb-ft of torque. Current CCX owners can have their cars converted to run on biofuel mill.
