car specs


The One:1 was introduced in 2014. Seven examples, including one prototype, were built during 2014 and 2015. This was one of the most exclusive production car programs ever envisaged in the scar industry. The hp-to-kg curb weight ratio is an astonishing 1:1. This is the “dream” equation, previously thought impossible when it comes to fully road legal and usable sports cars. The One:1 is the first homologated production car in the world with one Megawatt of power, thereby making it the world´s first series produced Megacar. Thus, the name One:1.



The One:1 truly raised the performance bar. The One:1 featured new, unique solutions that enhance track performance without compromising top speed or everyday usability, with a stunning visual appearance to go with it. Examples of features: unique track-opti aero winglets, extended venturi tunnels and side splitters, Le-Mans inspired active wing configuration and optimized active under trim air management. Large air vents for improved cooling, roof air scoop to support the 1 Megawatt of power, 8250 RPM rev limit, complemented with custom-made Michelin Cup Tires, upgraded rear Triplex suspension with carbon bevel springs and active shock absorbers and ride height,
combined with upgraded revolutionary Koenigsegg Aircore carbon fiber wheels. Koenigsegg was the first extreme car manufacturer to take steps toward green technology with the release of the biofuel CCXR in 2007. The One:1, a sibling of the highly competitive Agera R, follows in the footsteps of the CCXR as it also runs on E85 biofuel, race fuel or normal gasoline.



When Koenigsegg first announced that its next car would produce one horsepower for every kilogram of weight – hence the name – it was hard to take seriously, but that’s just what it has accomplished.The One:1’s 5.0-liter twin-turbo Koenigsegg-designed V8 puts out 1340 horsepower. That’s more than three times the power you get from the 5.0-liter V8 in a brand new Mustang GT. Amazingly, the One:1 only weighs in at just 1340 kilos, which is about 16 percent less than the Pony Car. And that weight figure? That’s with all the fluids and an average driver included. Yowza



The Koenigsegg One:1 was built in just seven examples with the first being a working prototype. The name “One:1” is derived from the car’s amazing horsepower-to-kilogram weight ratio, which as you probably guessed is 1:1. A sibling of the 2013 Koenigsegg Agera R, the One:1 effectively raised the bar for performance and was dubbed the world’s first megacar, being able to produce a total of 1 megawatt of power (about 1341.02 horsepower.) It also produced a maximum torque of 1011 pound-feet at 6,000 rpm. The most interesting part is that the One:1 is able to run on a number of different fuels, including normal gasoline, race fuel, and believe it or not, E85 biofuel. All six production models were sold out before the car even made its official debut, claiming around $2.4 million from the deep pockets of each purchaser



The story of Koenigsegg is as fascinating and unique as the cars themselves. Christian was only 5 years old when he first saw a stop-motion film from Norway about a bicycle repairman who builds his own racing car. The film must have made an impression, as a young Christian grew up dreaming of creating the perfect sports car. Some 17 years later, and against all odds, he did just that.
