Infiniti Essence 592 hp Hybrid at the LA Auto Show

The Infiniti Essence is a 592 hp hybrid show car. The car has been in the US since 2009, and has done the show car circuit a few times. This was my first chance to see the car up close. It looks like it is built on a Nissan GT-R chassis. So its possible, this could be a future Nissan GT-R,or Infinitisupercar.

Switzer P800 Nissan GTR vs Koenigsegg CCR x 2 Races

Koenigsegg might be a name you have never heard of. They are a semi- obscure Swedish super car manufacturer that tried to purchase Saab in 2009 from General Motors.  However, they never carried though with the sale.
The CCR was produced from 2004-2006 by Koenigsegg, so this car is pretty rare. It was also listed as the “fastest production car” in the world, in 2005 to 2006 when the Bugatti Veyron beat it.  Power is listed as 896 hp, and weight is listed as 1180 kg (2601 lbs) dry giving it an impressive power to weight ratio.
On February 28, 2005, at 12.08 local time, the Koenigsegg CCR broke the production road car speed record, achieving a new official top speed of 387.37 km/h (240.7 mph) at hoi Italy's Nardo Prototipo proving ground. A team of five Koenigsegg engineers and mechanics together with founder Christian von Koenigsegg ran a technically standard CCR, driven by famous supercar test driver and veteran record breaker Loris Bicocchi.

In this video, from 2nd gear, the CCR clearly walks away from the Nissan GT-R at higher speeds. From the 1st gear roll, the CCR spins the tires , and then again in 2nd gear, giving the Nissan GT-R enough space to keep it out in front.  With nearly 900 hp, and more than 1000 lbs lighter than a GT-R, its suprising the CCR didn’t pull harder on the Switzer P800 GT-R.   I was just reading about a Switzer GTR 1RK 1000+hp GT-R on Nagtroc today.  Heres a sneak peak video.
