The car so nice, they named it twice: meet the hyperfast Koenigsegg One:1

This is the megacar speed demons have been lusting after

One:1?
We'll admit that it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but there is a reason for the double digit moniker.

There's only one in the entire world?
Good guess, but way off. There'll actually be six of these beast roaming the streets. The ‘One:1’ in its name comes from the fact that it has a 1:1 power to weight ratio. For every kilogram it weighs, it packs an equal amount of tarmac-destroying horsepower.

So which is it then? Really light, or really powerful?
Both. It weighs 1340kg and its 5-litre twin-turbo V8 engine packs in the power of 1340 horses. Our trusty light friend carbon fibre makes an appearance in everything from the sun visors to the wheels, and its titanium exhaust is 3D printed in-house. Snazzy eh?

More after the break...

So how fast are we talking here?
Extremely fast. Crazy fast. Flash-on-steroids fast. It can hit a bowel-warping 399kph in 20 short seconds. 

Bowel-warping?
It's when your insides.. umm.... yeah, we'll gloss over the details.

I refuse to ask how much it is and where I can get one
Good. Because we refuse to tell you that even if you could afford it, you won’t be able to get your hands on one. Every single one of the six that will be produced has already been snapped up. But you can drive it virtually; the Koenigsegg One:1 is available for download in Need for Speed: Rivals.
