Koenigsegg One:1 will hit 450 km/h image

The first details on the impressive Koenigsegg One:1 have emerged last year but since then, the carmaker has managed to keep important performance figures a secret.

The Koenigsegg One:1 will become the fastest ever supercar the company has ever produced and computer simulations suggest that the model could achieve a top speed beyond 450 km/h. Christian von Koenigsegg is promising to make the One:1 the world’s fastest car from 0 to 200 km/h, from 0 to 300 km/h and even from 0 to 400 km/h. The 0 to 400 km/h sprint can be achieved in approximately 20 seconds and this means that the model is twice as quick as the standard Bugatti Veyron.

The total weight of the supercar stands at 1,400 kg, and this includes all water, oil and fuels and even the weight of the driver is included in this figure. 1,400 is also representing the number of HP, derived from the V8 engine, which means that the weight to HP ratio stands at one-to-one. Top speed of the supercar will stand at just over 450 km/h. A running prototype of the Koenigsegg One:1 is believed to be ready by the end of 2014 and once the model will hit the production line, 6 units will be available and all of them would have been sold, each for 1.4m USD.
