Koenigsegg One:1 HyperCar Revealed


Koenigsegg revealed the highly anticipated One:1 - The name refers to the power-to-weight ratio of the vehicle: a weight of 1360kg and 1360 horsepower, which is set to become the world's fastest production car!

Koenigsegg calls it the world’s first production ‘Megawatt’ car, because of its 1,000-kilowatt power rating, that translates to about 1,340 horsepower. The engine is Koenigsegg’s own revised twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 design with variable geometry turbochargers.

Power is transferred to the wheels via a dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox and an electronic differential. Koenigsegg is confident the car will set new acceleration records for 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph), 0-300 km/h (0-186 mph)

While the car looks very similar to the Agera model, the One:1 uses an entirely new weave of carbon fibre that reduced monocoque weight dramatically (first reports suggest up to 40%)

Like many other hypercars Koenigsegg is using active aerodynamics, but with a interesting twist. The front underside has cuts added to the carbon fibre to make it more pliable, when under load the hydraulic actuators are actually used to bend the carbon fibre and direct the air through the body and out through the hood. 

Other aerodynamic design includes: extended venturi tunnels and side splitters, a Le-Mans inspired active wing configuration at the rear and an optimized active undertrim air management. Large air vents for improve cooling to the engine and a roof air scoop.

Braking features ventilated ceramic discs measuring 397 mm in diameter, 40 mm in width and with 6 ceramic piston calipers at the front. At the rear, the One:1 gets ventilated ceramic discs measuring 380 mm in diameter, 34 mm in width and with 4-piston calipers.

Only six examples will be built, and all of them have been pre-sold. Price is believed to be around $2 million per unit. This will truly go down as one of the rarest cars ever made & in our eyes, one of the best looking cars!
