Koenigsegg One:1 unveiled ahead of 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Andrew Christian, on February 28, 2014

Koenigsegg has officially unveiled the One:1, a vehicle described by the company as a mega car. Koenigsegg says that the One:1 comes with 1 megawatt of power, meaning that the 5.0-liter aluminum V8 engine generates 1,341 hp (986 kW) and an impressive 1,371 Nm of torque (1,011 lb-ft) @ 6,000 rpm.

Not only the amount of power generated by the engine is impressive, but also the weight of the new Koenigsegg One:1 as the car weighs just 1,341 kg (2,956 lbs). This means that the One:1 has a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. Bolted to a 7-speed gearbox and using an electronic differential, the new Koenigsegg One:1 promises a top speed of 273 mph or 440 km/h, making it one of the fastest supercars found on the market.

Moreover, the One:1 zooms from 0 to 400 km/h (248.5 mph) in an incredible 20 seconds and is able to stop from that speed in just 10 seconds. The high-performance braking system uses 397 mm power-assisted ventilated ceramic discs with six-piston calipers on the front 380 mm ventilated ceramic discs with four-piston calipers on the rear. The braking system is the same found on the Agera R and needs only 28 meters to stop the Koenigsegg One:1 from 100 km/h (62 mph).

The braking system is hidden behind the 19-inch front/20-inch rear carbon fiber wheels wrapped in Michelin Cup Tires which have a speed rating of 273 mph or 440 km/h. Due to improved performances, the Koenigsegg One:1 comes with a large front splitter with optimised leading edge for low speed effect, dynamic venture flap system, dynamic ride height and rake control, new guide vanes/vortex generatos, extended side splitters with rear venture exit, improved brake cooling, wheel exit venture tunnels, additional transmission cooling feed, improved and optimized rear venture flow.

As you can see from the pictures, the new car features an electronically controlled & hydraulically actuated rear wing that auto adjusts from high downforce to minimum trag in rear time, depending on the vehicle’s speed and g-force. A specially developed carbon pushrod system with low frequency dampers is used to control the wing assy. According to Koenigsegg, the One:1’s whole wing assembly including hydraulic units have a total weight of just 9 kg, making it the lightest active wing system available.

Furthermore, we find super light wing mirrors with advanced aerodynamics, large side air outlet for improved underbody flow, increased lateral safety and reduced drag, optimized side air scoop for increased intercooler flow, vents ofer the wheel arches that reduce drag and increase downforce, top mounted wing strakes for high speed stability and low drag increased wing under surface, and front hood vents for increased downforce.

I you want to buy the Koenigsegg One:1 you'd better hurry up as the Swedish carmaker will only built six of them. There are no words about the price, but to expect a seven figures price tag!
