This the Koenigsegg CC8Sdescent video from a series of videos where I will test drive most of the cars in Test Drive Unlimited. The location is the descent from Mokule'ia peak, it is one of the most demanding roads in the game, it has a lot of turns and a rough terrain. The descent is 7.4 Km long, the altitude difference is 611m (from the peak to sea level) and the last 600m is a straight line best suited to test the acceleration near the top speed. The Koenigsegg CC82 managed a time of 2:41:1 and it was very hard to keep it in a straight line. It has a lot of power which comes in big lumps thus allowing the car to catch speed almost immediately. Unfortunately this car does not have quite the best gearbox ratios required to apply the up-shifting strategy used on the Saleen, and as a result most of the time the driver must compensate for the ever-present tendency to slide.
