Bologna Motor Show is also home to the Koenigsegg CCXR supercar for the first time to “visit” to Italy with his team. The car was made immediately noted for his line stretched and exaggerated, as well as for its performance, thrilling. To tell the truth would be almost unbelievable if we had not been used in the meantime other supercar worthy of a comparison with the CCXR.
Lately we have been able to meet some other car of the same caliber as the Bugatti 16C Galibier or the Keating TKR, the fastest car in the world (419 km / h) as seen in the last test in Salt Lake in California. Both amazing performance, with respective power equal to 1,001 and 1,800 horses.

They are dealing with final testing of the car, just like they did with other dream cars including the Bugatti Veyron and Pagani Zonda. The same Bicocchi Loris is on site to explain to visitors the characteristics of the models that over. We see the performance of the new Koenigsegg CCXR. The car reaches 417 km per hour (two less than the Keating record) and sprints from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.9 seconds.

The mystery of the Mitsubishi SUV. It’s the new Mitsubishi RVR, which the House has just released a few images. ‘S ready to land in Japan next spring and later in other markets affected by Mitsubishi, including Europe and Italy. Aesthetically it is pretty nice, if you want even elegant.
The RVR is 4.3 meters long, not so much an SUV, and will be powered by a 1.8-liter MIVEC. It will be available, at least for Europe, a diesel engine of same displacement, capable of approximately 130 horses. The new Mitsubishi RVR will have four-wheel drive, electronically controlled and will borrow the most advanced technologies from other Honda models such as the dual-clutch gearbox that we find for example in the Lancer. For now you do not know details, but you can go further with the hypotheses. The SUV / crossover comes from the Mitsubishi Concept-X concept car presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show two years ago, in 2007.

Zhejang Gonow Auto born in China in 2003 and lands in Europe and in Italy in 2007. He is a valued and popular brand in home country, although still difficult to take off here. That must be why the Chinese House did not let up the chance to get a bit ‘under the spotlight with the 2009 Motor Show.

You can easily switch between the front wheel to the full.

The two pick-ups are available in Ecomode, the first is a double cab, GA200, the second – the same model – is a single cabin.
