Koenigsegg Agera One:1 stretches its big rear wing at 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on March 5, 2014

In order to mark its 20th anniversary, Koenigsegg introduced at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show the new Agera One:1 a.k.a. world’s first Megacar. Why One:1? Because this is the first car in the world that has a 1:1 power to curb weight ratio homologated production car (1,341 kg/ 1,341 hp).

Under the hood we find the revised 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 1,341hp (986 kW) and an impressive 1,371 Nm (1,011 lb-ft) of torque.

Why Megacar? Because it generates 1 Megawatt of power and it is again a first for a homolohated production car. According to Koenigsegg, top speed was not a priority as this is a track-focused car. Still, it is not slow as it achieved a simulated top speed of over 440 km/h or 273 mph.

Other highlights of the new Agera One:1 are the chassis with active ride height and shock absorbing including variable stiffness spring ratios, an active aero with independent left and right front flaps under front splitter and a hydraulically actuated top mounted dual plane rear wing.

Moreover, the vehicle generates 610 kg down force at 260 km/h (160 mph) utilizing advanced active under and over body aerodynamics. 3G and GPS controlled Predictive Active Chassis and Aero Track Mode also sounds interesting.

Koenigsegg also developed new carbon fiber ventilated memory foam racing seats and a 3D printed titanium exhaust end piece that saves 400 grams compared to Aluminium counterpart. [source: Koenigsegg]
