If you check out the 30s plus the time it takes the car to complete the run, you might wonder how this Koenigsegg could deliver on its official promise of completing the 0 to 250 MPH run in 20s.
First of all, you’ll notice the revs stop at around 7,300 rpm, which is not exactly the official 8,250 rpm limit, the explanation here is a mix between the car still being in the run-in period and the fact that it’s not running on E85.
Then there are the sheer real-world vs. on-paper differences, such as the grip and the wind conditions. Moreover, with hypercars like this, it’s always a case of bespoke settings. For instance, the One:1 you see here is geared for its 286 MPH top speed. With the custom 250 MPH gearing, an approximate gain of 15 percent in terms of grunt would be present.
Nonetheless, the run remains an impressive one, and we’ll most likely get our hands on extra material on this 1-hp-to-1-kg power-to-weight ratio soon.
PS: yes, that is an uber-enthusiastic, heavily tuned Porsche 911 Turbo that puts up with the K machine.
