The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is the most expensive street-legal production car in the world. So what makes it so expensive? This amazing car is literally covered in diamonds. Here is a closer look at this Amazing Car Of The Day: The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita.

The Swedish automaker utilized a new exterior finish called the Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave, which coats carbon fiber with diamond dusted resign. Only two examples of this car have ever been made, and one belongs to none other than Floyd "Money" Mayweather. The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita has an astonishing price of $4.8 million.

The CCXR Trevita features a 4.8 liter twin-supercharged dual overhead cam V8 engine capable of 1,004 horsepower. The most expensive car in the world can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 250 mph.

Mayweather bragged about his car on Instagram and told us that his was the only USA specific model in the world. He also informed us that Trevita means "three whites." Floyd's Trevita has a silver body with black and white trim.

The Koenigsegg CCXR is a variation of the Koenigsegg CCX which is a mid-engined sports car made by Koenigsegg. The Koenigsegg CCXR is the more environmentally friendly version of the CCX. It uses the same engine, but is converted to use E85 and E100 ethanol fuel and standard 98 octane petrol. It comes with upgraded fuel lines and piston rings as well as modified fuel injectors and superchargers with a higher boost setting.

The CCXR was selected by Forbes in 2009 as one of the ten most beautiful cars in history. CCX is an abbreviation for Competition Couple X and the X commemorates the 10th anniversary of the completion and test drive of the first CC vehicle back in 1996. As Floyd Mayweather and only one other person both know, it doesn't get any better than the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita.
