Do you have a need for speed, at least from a motor vehicle standpoint?

Then check out the new Swedish CCR, the world’s fastest production car, at the Exotic Cars dealership located at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace.

Manufactured by Koenigsegg Automotive AB, the space-age style sports car will be unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show in March, but a version is already on display in the Exotic Cars showroom.

The 806 horsepower, 2200 pound carbon fibre supercar, goes from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds, runs the standing quarter mile in just 9 seconds at 146 mph and has a top-end speed of 250 mph.

"We couldn’t be happier," said Richard Weisman, CEO of Exotic Cars. "In addition to being the fastest production car, it is also one of the most impressively engineered vehicles ever made."

Exotic Cars at Caesars Palace currently displays more than 40 vehicles with prices in excess of $1 million, including such exclusive lines as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bentley.

Koenigsegg plans to deliver a limited number of cars during the first year, and orders are being taken on a first come, first served basis. The base price for this exotic sports car is $650,000.

The Swedish manufacturer indicated that the Forum Shops dealership will be its exclusive dealer in the United States.

Exotic Cars has a two-story, 34,000-square-foot showroom in the Forum Shops, which attracts thousands of visitors a day.
