Swedish car maker Koenigsegg finally released official details and pictures of the long-awaited Agera One:1, coining the term “Megacar” for it. The One:1 is too special to be called a super car, or even a hyper car. It is not, however, the fastest car in the world as we thought it would be – at least not officially.
Boasting one megawatt of power, the Koenigsegg Agera One:1 has a power to curb weight ratio homologated production car (kg/hp). Official power output of 1,341 horsepower, so the car weighs exactly 1,341 kg. The torque figure meanwhile stands at 1,371 Nm, which is astonishing for a 5.0 liter V8 bi-fuel engine.
Koenigsegg points out that top speed has not been the top priority in developing the One:1, since it is mainly a track car. That said, in computer simulations they have achieved 440 km/h. So theoretically it is faster than both the Bugatti Veyron SS and the Hennessey Venom GT. Theoretically.
The most mind-bending fact about the Koenigsegg Agera One:1 is the car’s acceleration. With the help of a dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox and an electronic differential, it can go from 0 to 400 km/h in 20 seconds! What’s more, it can get back to zero from that speed in 10 seconds. You need to be fighter jet-fit to drive this car fast. Otherwise, the G can cause serious damages to your body.
Koenigsegg Agera One:1 is an aerodynamic masterpiece, featuring fully active aero with independent left and right front flaps under front splitter and hydraulically actuated top mounted dual plane rear wing. No wonder then it can generate 610 kg down force at 260 km/h (160 mph), or pull 2 G while cornering on road legal production cup tires.
The world’s first Megacar also features monster ceramic brakes, triplex suspension with active control, 3G and GPS controlled Predictive Active Chassis and Aero Track Mode, and 3G connection for telemetry, performance, lap times and software upgrades, including owners iPhone app.
If you like this car, well, don’t. They will only build six units of it and all of them have already been sold. You can, however, take a close look at it at the Geneva Motor Show.
