Koenigsegg One:1 sets 0-300-0 km/h record image

A Koenigsegg One:1 megacar has managed to set a new world record for a 0 to 300 km/h and then back to 0 sprint.

The Koenigsegg One:1 is definitely one of the hottest vehicles money can buy these days but besides being able of reaching a top speed significantly more than the one of the record-breaking Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, it is also the fastest vehicle in the world on a 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph) and then back to 0 sprint. The test has been performed on Angelholm track, in Sweden, and the VBOX recorder data is showing the vehicle being able to do it in a total of 17.95 seconds.

“Koenigsegg stunned the world in September 2011 when it set a Guinness World Record time of 21.19 seconds for the 0-300-0kmh run in the Koenigsegg Agera R. The time achieved by the Koenigsegg One:1 cuts a full 3.24 seconds from what was already considered to be an unbeatable time”, said Koenigsegg in its press release.

From 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph), the megacar needs just 11.922 seconds and it can go back to a full stop again in just 6.03 seconds. The carmaker is also explaining in the video that this particular example of the Koenigsegg One:1 is actually 50 kg (110 lbs) heavier than the standard model so the record is currently unofficial. The Koenigsegg One:1 is making use of a 5.0 liter aluminum engine, which is capable of putting down 1,341 HP (986 kW) and 1,371 Nm (1,011 lb-ft) of torque, being able to reach a top speed of 450 km/h.
