The exclusive Koenigsegg One:1 was unveiled earlier this year at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and most of you folks may remember it as the mega car, the hypercar that comes with 1 megawatt of power. Only six units of this hypercar will ever be produced and one of them will be headed to the UK and will be the only One:1 in right-hand drive configuration.
As you can see from the photos, the RHD Koenigsegg One:1 features blue tinted carbon with triple layered pearlescent white stripe that highlights the design lines. For those who still don’t know, the Koenigsegg One:1 is powered by a 5.0-liter aluminum V8 engine that produces 1,314 hp (986 kW) and a staggering 1,371 Nm (1,011 lb-ft) of torque at 6,000 rpm.
What’s more interesting is that the car weighs 1,341 kg (1,956 lbs), which means that the hypercar has a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. The engine is bolted to a 7-speed transmission and delivers the power using an electronic differential.
According to the company, their vehicle is able to accelerate from 0 to 400 km/h (248.5 mph) in 20 seconds and is able to stop in just 10 seconds thanks to the 397 mm power-assisted ventilated ceramic discs with six-piston calipers on the front and 380 mm ventilated ceramic discs with four-piston calipers on the rear.
This is the same braking system found on the Koenigsegg Agera R and it is able to stop the One:1 from 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 28 meters.
Koenigsegg picked the term Agera – a Swedish verb that means "to act" – as a fitting moniker for its latest super car as well as a symbol of its philosophy. Always striving forward, Koenigsegg has been seeking challenges beyond the limits. As a result of this endeavor, the Koenigsegg Agera supercar was born, boasting of functions responding accordingly to its given name.
Christian von Koenigsegg, founder and chief executive of Koenigsegg, remarked that once the carmaker believes in something, its acts. In the same manner, the Agera acts accordingly when receives command to deliver an overwhelming performance. Following Koenigsegg’s tradition of continuous improvements, the Agera was development in an evolutionary manner, as achieved by taking advantage of previous experience and innovative mindsets as well as by honing and perfecting the final outcome. Koenigsegg added in developing the new Agera, the carmaker’s mindset was to maximize driving experience and cornering speed as well as braking and adaptability.
The carmaker considers the Koenigsegg Agera as a testament to time. In fact, the original shape and concept of the Koenigsegg CC was created around 15 years ago. Despite that, this shape and concept remains valid and fresh as well as highly competitive until the present times. True enough, the new Koenigsegg Agera remains faithful true to the original philosophy, size and shape of the original CC. Amazingly, the appearance and performance of the new Agera seemingly belongs to the future.
