Beachside drifting in

The ridiculously expensive rarity driven in the sand

Instead of opting for the smooth pavement of the race tracks, the driver of the Koenigsegg CCXR demonstrated the power of the car on a sandy beach in Denmark. The Swedish sports car took the off-road number well.

It's hard to image what made the driver of the black CCXR worth €1.5 million start drifting on the sandy beach on the Danish isle of Rømø. Sadly, this is the only video documenting the interesting spectacle, although we would have loved to watch the car shake off the wet sand once it got back on the pavement.

The Koenigsegg CCXR manufactured between 2007 and 2011 was designed by Swedish design genius Christian von Koenigsegg. Using fuel containing ethyl alcohol, the car featuring a 4.7-litre, V8 engine has 1064 PS. It does 0-100 km/h in 2.7 seconds with an end speed of over 400 km/h, rivalling the Bugatti Veyron.
