The Swedish firm claims their new model hypercar has a top speed of more than 273mph (439kph), making it the fastest production road car in the world – faster than both the Hennessey Venom GT (270mph) and the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (268mph).
The Koenigsegg is called the One:1 because it has a power-to-weight ratio of 1:1 – it weighs 1340kg and produces 1322 brake horsepower (1340 metric horsepower).
The price hasn’t been released yet, but Koenigsegg confirm all planned units of the One:1 have already been sold.
That insane power number comes courtesy of a twin-turbocharged, 5.0-liter V8 that, in addition to the 1,341 hp, puts out an equally pavement-warping 1,011 pound-feet of torque. Koenigsegg hasn’t released a 0-60 time, but we imagine it’s something like six milliseconds, and we’re told the car can theoretically top out at near 273 miles per hour. You know, no big deal.
The One:1 can pull around 2Gs of cornering force on road-legal tires, and with active aero bits like a rear wing and independent, left and right front flaps, Koenigsegg says 1,345 pounds of downforce are available at 160 mph, to keep everything copacetic. Insanely copacetic, of course.
Want one? Too bad. Koenigsegg only plans to build six examples of the Agera One:1, and all of them have been spoken for. Oh well. Have a look at this insane car in the gallery
