The hyperfast Koenigsegg One:1 travels at the speed of light

This is the One (:1) megacar you’ve been dreaming of all your life

Am I seeing double?

Nope, the incredible car’s so unique that they had to name it one twice to drive the point across.

So there’s only one in the world?

Ironically no as six will be produced. The ‘One:1’ in its name comes from the fact that it has a 1:1 ratio of power to weight, which means that for every kilogram it weighs, it packs an equal amount of pavement-burning horsepower. 

More after the break...

That means it’s either extremely light or super powerful

Ye of little faith, the Koenigsegg One:1 is both. It weighs 1340kg and puts out 1340 horsepower via its 5-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. Its lightness is due to it being clad in mostly carbon fibre, from its sun visors to its tippy-toes - the wheels, and meticulous attention to detail right down to its titanium exhaust being 3D printed in-house. Simple physics: less weight, more speed.  

I get it. It’s fast

It’s not just fast, it’s extremely fast, crazy fast even, so fast that a new word needs to be invented for fast. Purported to be able to accelerate from 0-399 kph in a matter of 20 short seconds, its face-warping speed deserves new definition. 

Sounds like I will only be able to afford one sometime in the year 11011

Even if you could afford one right at this very moment, you won’t be able to get your hands on it. Every single one of the six that will be produced has already been spoken for. But you can drive it in virtual reality; the Koenigsegg One:1 is available for download in Need for Speed: Rivals.
