At last count, EA's free-to-play racer Need for Speed World had garnered more than 5 million users. The publisher is hoping some of those users have deep pockets because the latest premium car for the online racer does not come cheap.

EA today announced that the Koenigsegg CCX "Elite" Edition, the first "premium elite" car to hit Need for Speed World, is now available in the in-game store for $100. For those who feel that's a bit pricey, it is currently on sale for $75 through December 21.

Codeveloped by EA Black Box and EA Singapore, Need for Speed World launched last July. The game sports over 100 miles of in-game road to traverse, including NFS: Most Wanted's Rockport locale and NFS: Carbon's Palmont city streets, as well as a full day/night cycle.

Need for Speed World is part of EA's Play4Free label, saddled up next to other games stemming from popular EA franchises like Battlefield, Dragon Age, and the recently announced Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances.
