Koenigsegg One:1 hypercar revealed with 1322bhp

Koenigsegg has revealed their latest and most powerful car, the One:1, ahead of its public debut at next week’s Geneva Motor Show.

The One:1 name is a reference to its power-to-weight ratio of 1:1 – it weighs 1,340kg and produces 1340 metric horsepower(1322bhp) from a twin-turbo 5.0-litre V8 linked to a dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox and an electronic differential.

That’s even more than the 1184bhp Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – the world’s fastest production car according to Guinness World Records.

The One:1 is based on the Agera, but with pretty big updates making it basically an all-new car. The biggest visual difference is the new hydraulically-actuated rear wing.

The weight of 1,340kg includes all necessary fluids and even the weight of an average size driver. Compared to the Agera is has a 20 per cent lighter carbon fibre chassis.

Koenigsegg did not release any performance specs yet, but is confident the One:1 will set new acceleration records for 0-124mph (0-200km/h), 0-186mph (0-300km/h) and also 0-248mph (0-400km/h) sprints, with the latter expected to take just 20 seconds.

According to Koenisegg, the top speed is not priority as it is a track-focused car, but the company is again very confident the One:1 could pass 273mph, making it faster than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport with its record top speed of 267.8mph.

The One:1 also pulls 2G while cornering on road legal tyres, and produces 610kg of downforce at speeds in excess of 160mph.

Koenigsegg will build just six examples and all cars have been sold already.
