Do you have more money than you know what to do with? Do you also have an insane craving for speeds that defy logic and possibly even science itself? Well then you’re probably one of six people crazy enough to be on the order list for the forthcoming Koenigsegg One:1.
The One:1 is the newest Koenigsegg product, due to be revealed at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. It is based on the Agera, itself an already insane hypercar, but thanks to extensive revision of most parts, it is essentially a new model altogether. But what’s so exciting about the One:1? Well it all starts with the name, which is a direct indication of the claimed power-to-weight ratio of the ‘Segg.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the One:1 tips the scales at 1340 kilograms (5Kg shy of the Agera’s weight), with all necessary fluids and a driver onboard, meaning the final power output is, you guessed it, 1340Hp (999.2 kW). With that much power on hand, Koenigsegg are confident the One:1 will set new acceleration records for the 0-200km/h, 0-300km/h, and 0-400km/h sprints, with the 0-400km/h rumoured to be as quick as 20 seconds.
So, with talks of 400km/h on the cards, less weight than a Bugatti Veyron SS, and more power than the big Bug, could the Swede beat the king of the top speed arena? Simulated data would suggest so. With a long enough track and suitable tyres, the One:1 is said to be able to top out beyond 450km/h, more than 18km/h faster than the Veyron SuperSport’s 2010 record.
Powering the One:1 is thought to be a twin-turbo 5.0-litre quad-cam V8, uprated from the Agera to meet the 1340kW requirement. Power will be directed to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
All 6 One:1’s to be built have allegedly all been pre-sold for a price of a cool $2 million (R22 164 400.00). If you’re lucky enough to have one, please be sure to invite us to your funeral, which we’re assuming will be held within a few weeks of your new ‘Segg arriving.
The Geneva Motor Show opens on 4th March when the One:1 is expected to be revealed.
