Koenigsegg One: 1; The World’s Most Powerful Production Car!

Koenigsegg One:1; The World’s Most Powerful Production Car!

A Swedish ‘megacar’ has broken the world speed record for accelerating from standstill to 186mph, and braking back to zero in just 17.95 seconds.

The One:1, which was introduced in 2014 and was built in 6 examples, plus one prototype, is one of the most exclusive production car programmes ever envisaged.

It is named ‘one-to-one’ for its perfectly balanced power-to-weight ratio (hp to kg curb weight), which is an astonishing 1:1 and previously thought impossible.

The new hypercar gets a twin-turbocharged 5.0-litre V8 engine, with large air vents for improved cooling, a roof air scoop to support the 1 Megawatt of power, and custom-made Michelin Cup Tyres.

Moreover, it gets an upgraded rear triplex suspension with carbon bevel springs and active shock absorbers, combined with the revolutionary Koenigsegg Aircore carbon fibre wheels.

Koenigsegg has already sold the seven One:1 it will produce; four to Asia, two to Europe, and one to the U.S, at a price of £1,790,000.
