Koenigsegg has officially unveiled the brand new One:1, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, which is about to become the world’s fastest production supercar.
After being teased several times and then officially unveiled just a few days ago, the brand new Koenigsegg One:1 has been seen by our crew live at the company’s stand in Geneva. We have to admit that this is one impressive ride and it should be in order to be faster than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. The Koenigsegg One:1 has a top speed of 450 km/h (280 mph), which is way more than the Veyron SS’ 431 km/h (268 mph).
The Swedish supercar is taking its name from its power-to-weight ratio, which is exactly 1:1. It weighs 1,341 kg (2,956 lbs) and it has 1,341 HP (986 kW). The Koenigsegg One:1 has an updated triplex suspension with carbon bevel springs and active shock absorbers, 397 mm front power assisted ventilated ceramic discs with 6-piston calipers, four-piston calipers for the 380 mm ventilated ceramic discs in the rear, 19- and 20-inch carbon fiber wheels, front to rear, wrapped in custom Michelin Cup Tires and much more.
Power to the Koenigsegg One:1 is being provided by a 5.0 liter aluminum V8 which, apparently, is way better than the W16 quad-turbo found on the Bugatti Veyron SS. Its main competitor has 1,200 HP (880 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,100 lb-ft) of torque, while the One:1 is coming with 1,341 HP (986 kW) and 1,371 Nm (1,011 lb-ft) of torque, available at 6,000 rpm. Koenigsegg says that the “world’s first mega car” can accelerate from 0 to 400 km/h (248.5 mph) in just 20 seconds and it can stop from that speed in 10 seconds. More details on it will be announced tomorrow, on the 4th of March, during its official presentation.
