Teenage prodigy Jennarong Muengtaweepongsa has a bright future ahead of him. The 15 year old Thai boy has a gift for car design. Readers may recall his outstanding renderings that he named Legera, derived from the ‘baby’ Koenigsegg and the Aston Martin DB11.
His latest project is called ‘Utagera’ which is a Swedish work that means to ‘terminate’. N2A Motors, which is based in California, was so impressed with this latest piece of work, that they transformed it into a scale model.
The Thailand International Motor Expo proudly has it on display for all to see. It took the teenager just three months to complete this project. The vehicle has a 5.0 litre twin-turbo V8 engine. Jennarong believes it would produce up to 1,000 hp without electrical assistance. The vehicle screams adrenaline whilst being seductive in its elegance.
Still, if you are interested in a real Koenigsegg, you have to know that the One:1 is their latest addition.
The hp to kg curb weight of the amazing One:1 has an extra ordinary ratio of 1:1 which previously had been thought unachievable. It is also the first homologated production cars of all time. Producing a megawatt of power, the vehicle has commanded the title of Mega car.
It is easy to see how the vehicle earned its name One:1. Today in 2014, everyone is looking to enhance performance on the track and the One:1 does just that. Track performance is intensified without sacrificing top speed or every day practicalities of using such an amazing vehicle.
Koenigsegg One:1 comes with new and improved features:- active wing configuration which has a Le-Mans style feel to it, venture tunnels that have been extended, track optimized aero winglets, and optimized active under trim air management.
The air vents have been enlarged to improve cooling and there is a roof air scoop to support the 1 Megawatt of power. With an impressive 8250 RPM rev limit and especially designed Michelin Cup Tires, the vehicle has an upgraded rear triplex suspension with carbon bevel springs.
Active shock absorbers and ride height together with the advanced carbon fibre Koenigsegg Air core wheels ensure that the ride is both powerful and stimulating.
In support of the green movement, back in 2007, Koenigsegg was the first extreme car manufacturer to use biofuel CCXR.
The One:1, part of the Agera R family, also takes up the green baton by running on E85 biofuel, race fuel or normal petrol. Koenigsegg used a custom designed variable turbo geometry technology in the One:1 program. This results in the engine having over 1000 Nm of torque between 3000 to 7500 rpm. Low end torque is improved and the engine is generally more responsive.
