Koenigsegg's Top Model, One:1 Confirmed - 1,400 HP and 1,400 KG




Koenigsegg is determined to create the world's fastest supercar, named One:1.  The name One:1 stands for the car’s power to weight ratio. It’s designed to weigh only 1,400 kilos and pack in an astounding 1,400 horsepower to match.

Koenigsegg plans to achieve that ratio not just with the dry weight of the car but with coolant, oil and fuel included. To put this perspective, if I had the power to weight ratio of the One:1

News of Koenigsegg’s most potent supercar has been circulating for almost a year and renderings of the car have already hit the Web. Until today, however, Koenigsegg has never released any information on it.

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Koenigsegg founder Christian von Koenigsegg confirmed that the One:1 will output 1,400 horsepower and have a curb weight of 1,400 kilograms (3,086 pounds).

The computer projections for this awesome power are simply unbelievable. Koenigsegg states that, if all goes according to plan, the One:1 will be able to achieve 280 miles per hour, making it the fastest production car in the world. What is even more insane is that the Koenigsegg will be able to reach 250 miles an hour in only 20 seconds, which is more than twice as fast as the Bugatti Veyron, according to Bloomberg.

Though based on Koenigsegg’s existing Agera line of supercars, the One:1 will feature numerous unique components. The Ageras all feature a carbon fiber monocoque structure and twin-turbocharged V-8 powerplants. Drive goes to the rear wheels only, via a custom seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Koenigsegg plans to complete the first prototype for the One:1 by the end of the year. Only six examples will be built for public sale and all of these are already accounted for. Though meaningless at this point, the One:1 will be priced significantly higher than any existing Koenigsegg, with some estimates claiming a pricetag in excess of $2 million.
