The Koenigsegg One:1 has managed to smash yet another world record and this has been caught on camera recently, taking place on a test track, in Sweden.
With Robert Serwanski behind the wheel and a “Do not try this at home” warning, Koenigsegg has released its newest video in which the world’s first megacar is the main star. The Koenigsegg One:1 has proved once again that it is an impressive ride and it has become the fastest vehicle in the world from 0 to 300 km/h and then back to 0. The time achieved by the megacar stands at 17.95 seconds. Check out the whole “attempt” in the video posted below and notice that the driver isn’t even wearing a helmet, which says nothing more than “pure confidence”.
Please also ignore the fact that his hands were mostly off the steering wheel because everything in this clip is purely amazing and it shows how far the automotive industry has come in the past few years. Koenigsegg has pulled the wraps off the One:1 last year, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, and it is a perfect proof that the future of exotic vehicles doesn’t necessarily have to be about electric motors. The model is making use of a 5.0 liter aluminum mad engine, which is capable of putting down a total output of 1,341 HP (986 kW) and 1,371 Nm (1,011 lb-ft) of torque. The megacar is weighing just 1,341 kg so this is where it is getting its name from, the power-to-weight ratio.
