The first ever production version of the Koenigsegg One:1 has been recently registered in Germany.
The world’s first megacar is named the Koenigsegg One:1 and it has been officially presented to the public earlier this year, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, and now, its very first production-spec has been officially registered in Germany. According to the local automotive media, Germany’s car registration system had to be reconfigured because the total output of the vehicle stands at 1,341 HP and translated into kilowatts, this is delivering exactly 1,000 kW. The computer system in the European country is accepting cars with kilowatt outputs of just three figures so this has been a real problem with its registration.
The Koenigsegg One:1 is putting the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in the shade with its impressive output and performance and unlike the Veyron, the One:1 is packing a 5.0 liter V8 aluminum engine under its hood, which is capable of producing no less than 1,341 HP (1,000 kW), getting a peak torque of 1,371 Nm (1,011 lb-ft), available at 6,000 rpm. Koenigsegg says that the megacar is capable of accelerating from 0 to 400 km/h in 20 seconds and it can come to a full stop again in 10 seconds. Top speed stands at a whopping 450 km/h (280 mph).
