Inside Koenigsegg takes a closer look at the Agera One:1 Megacar [video]

Drive channel’s Inside Koenigsegg series is back with a new episode, taking a look at the One:1 Megacar, that debuted earlier this month at the Geneva Motor Show.

We get to see Christian von Koenigsegg show the One:1 up close as it is prepared to be shipped to the Geneva Motor Show.

The One:1 is what Koenigsegg calls world’s first 1:1 (One:1) power to curb weight ratio homologated production car (kg/hp) and the world’s first Megacar as it packs 1340 metric horsepower (1322bhp), while weighing 1,340kg.

Power comes from a twin-turbo 5.0-litre V8 linked to a dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox and an electronic differential.

Estimated top speed is more than 273mph (440 km/h) and Koenigsegg will build just six cars, all sold prior to its Geneva debut.

There are five more episodes planned, all focusing exclusively on the One:1. New episodes will be released on Tuesday’s so check back for more.
