We’ll remind you friends like to call this Koenigsegg the Megawatt car, simply because it delivers precisely that much power: 1,000 kilowatts. That’s 1,341 hp or, in the PS unit the Germans (and Europe in general) use, 1,360 horses.
The designation of the hypercar actually tells its story, as this Koenigsegg has 1 hp to 1 kg power-to-weight ratio - yes, this means the thing tips the scales at 1,341 kg or 2,956 lbs.
The Koenigsegg Agera R on which the One:1 is based already holds multiple production car acceleration records, so once Koenigsegg decides to officially record the One:1’s performance, the record books will once again be rocked.
To get an idea of just how quick the One:1 is, we’ll mention its top speed can top 450 km/h (279.5 mph). Oh and you shouldn’t worry about the high speed stability. The complex aerodynamic package means that, at 260 km/h (161 mph), the beast delivers 610 kg (1,844 lbs) of downforce, while at 430 km/h (267 mph), the value jumps to 830 kg (1,830 lbs).
Twisties? No problem, this rear-wheel driven monster can pull up to 2Gs through the bends.
There’s another, even better reason to love the One:1Sure, the numbers above are mind-blowing, but, interestingly enough, this is not the best reason to love the One:1. That title goes to the fact that this is Koenigsegg’s response to the LaFerrari-918 Spyder-P1 hybrid hypercar triumvirate.
Oh and what an answer this is. There’s no emission-friendly hybrid stuff here, just fuel and compressed air, all for the sweet suck-squeeze-bang-blow we all love.
