Koenigsegg working on the One:1 hypercar: 280 mph top speed

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 2, 2013

Christian von Koenigsegg is know for its fast cars but it this man has very ambitious plans to build a hypercar that has is faster than the Bugatti Veyron, its main rival. Dubbed One:1, the new Koenigsegg hypercar will achieve a one-to-one ration of weight and horsepower. Christian von Koenigsegg said that the upcoming car will deliver 1,400 hp which means that it will have a weight of 1,400 kg.

This is considerably more powerful than the Agera, which delivers “only” 965” hp. But what is more interesting is that the new car will have a top speed of 280 mph or 450 km/h, which means that it will be faster than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition that has a speed of 268 mph or 431 km/h.

Still, this isn’t all as the new Koenigsegg One:1 will be able to hit 248 mph or from a standstill in just 20 seconds, 25 seconds faster than the Bugatti Veyron. Due to these numbers, the car will also be very expensive and only six units will be produced.
