If you’re a Nurburgring aficionado you might want to head over to the famous race circuit because you may be able to catch a roaring glimpse of the Koenigsegg One:1 shown in the video below.
The engineers and test pilots are apparently honing the skills of the supercar and who knows – once all the procedures are done they may even attempt a final run for a fast lap time – meaning records are in jeopardy. Crank the sound up during the clip watch because the roaring engine is absolutely terrific, in tune with its roars and whistles being the well known sections of the Green Hell. We’re unsure if the driver was going flat out or just pacing itself since any of the versions make the One:1 faster than anything on the track. Back in 2014 when Koenigsegg first outed the One:1 the Swedes decided to coin yet another term – instead of supercar and hypercar, they referred to it as the Megacar. The Nurburgring runs were a long time coming since the company said from the start it would put the model through its paces on the legendary circuit – but the idea had to be postponed when last year a serious racing crash led to organizers setting up speed limits and modifying the layout.
During a recent blog post that announced the impending return to the ‘Ring they also stressed they weren’t gunning for a record lap – instead trying to spend as much time as possible honing the “megacar”. The One:1 of course will only test during private days, with Koenigsegg factory driver Robert Serwanski behind the wheel. With an aggressive aero body kit – just look at the impressive wing – five-spoke carbon-fiber wheels, a deep front splitter, and an aggressive rear diffuser, the One:1 is a sight to behold. The 5.0-liter biturbo V8 delivers 1,322 horsepower and 1,011 lb-ft of torque, with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission sending all that oomph to the rear wheels.
