Koenigsegg One:1 with 1,400 horsepower teased ahead of next month's Geneva debut

Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg is a tiny automaker with total units built little over 100, but it is one of the best known, when it comes to high-end supercars.

Next month at the Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg will show their latest project, the One:1.

From the single image released so far, we can it is most likely based on the Agera, but has a huge rear wing supported by two fins installed on the roof, generating more downforce to keep the car to the ground even at theoretical top speed of more than 280mph (450 km/h). Most likely the top speed will be restricted, unless someone has built tyres to handle such a top speed.

Engine details are limited, but the One:1 name comes from a 1,400 horsepower (1,322bhp) and 1,400kg power to weight ratio. That’s extra 200 horepower compared to the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

Koenigsegg has already confirmed the One:1 is going to be the quickest car in the world in the 0-124mph, 0-186mph and 0-248mph sprints, with the latter taking just about 20 seconds.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition has a top speed of 258mph, so it is very likely the One:1 will be a bit faster also on the top speed run.
