Koenigsegg announced that its Agera One:1 hypercar will make its dynamic debut at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed. For those who don’t know, the Koenigsegg Agera One:1 was unveiled back in March at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, but at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed the Swedish carmaker will bring not one, but two vehicles.

One of them will be driven in the Michelin Super Car run Lord Mach’s event, while the other one will be on display at Michelin’s booth. The Agera One:1 is Koenigsegg’s masterpiece, a hypercar that has a power-to-weight ratio of 1:1. The vehicle is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine that delivers 1341 hp (986 kW) and has a weight of just 1341 kg.

According to Koenigsegg this is the world’s first Megacar, because it has a 1:1 power to curb weight ratio. The Agera One:1 uses a 7-speed gearbox and an electronic differential and it is able to accelerate from 0 to 400 km/h (248.5 mph) in just 20 seconds and it is able to stop from that speed in just 10 seconds.

Moreover, the Agera One:1 needs only 28 meters in order to stop from 100 km/h (62 mph). Top speed is expected to reach 273 mph or 440 km/h, making the Koenigsegg Agera S one of the fastest supercars on the market.

In order to achieve a top speed of over 270 mph, the new hypercar is equipped with a new rear wing that adjust itself with some help from a specially developed carbon pushrod system.

The new wing and the new hydraulic units have a total weight of just 9 kg. Everything seen on the new hypercar has been carefully developed in order to make the Agera One:1 superlight. Koenigsegg will only build 6 units of the Agera One:1, but there aren’t any details about the price tag.
