The only RHD Koenigsegg One:1 pictured in final stages of production

Koenigsegg unveiled the One:1 hyper-megacar earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, calling it the world’s first 1:1 (One:1) power to curb weight ratio homologated production car (kg/hp).

Based on the Agera, the One:1 weighs 1,340kg and packs 1,340 horsepower (1,322bhp) from a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 linked to a dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox and an electronic differential.

Other main changes compared to the more standard Agera include a lighter carbon fibre chassis and a fully active aero with independent left and right front flaps under front splitter and hydraulically actuated top mounted dual plane rear wing.

Just six cars will be built and surprisingly one of the cars will be a RHD model, commissioned by The BHP Project, who has released pictures of the manufacturing process of their very special one-off RHD Koenigsegg One:1 finished largely in blue tinted carbon fibre.

According to The BHP Project: “all of those countless and painstakingly long hours putting all the small bits and pieces together are really paying off now”.

Jens Sverdrup from Koenigsegg goes into little more details and adds: “The car is now on its final stages and will go through set up and test drive after Christmas. On station 2 it starts with a naked finished monocoque. Developed and built in-house using several different types of Koenigseggs special recipe pre pre carbon fiber, utilizing aluminum honeycomb cores as well as divinycell cores and baking in EPDM for sound insulation and vibration damping in strategic areas”.

The One:1 is a track focused car and reportedly Nürburgring lap record is something the Swedes are after. The top speed is expected to be more than 273mph (440 km/h).
