The Koenigsegg One:1 Defines Speed & Power.
Koenigsegg One:1 Top Speed, Specs, And Other Cool Facts!
Updated October 11, 2018
When you build a car for speed, what factors come to mind? The average guy would probably say, it needs to be low to the ground, nice sized spoiler, huge air ducts for cooling the engine, and some sticky rubber for grip. That for all intents, and purposes that’s a pretty good answer, but what about wind resistance, aerodynamics, air funneling, and cooling parameters? This is how a car designer from Koenigsegg thinks when he wants to make a car that will go insanely fast, whilst looking like the meanest thing on the street.
Introducing the Koenigsegg One:1, a car that, by the designer’s line of thinking, has no equal. At this year’s Geneva Auto Show, there have been many reveals, and debuts for various types of cars. Some big, some colorful, some exotic, and some very practical, but then there’s the One:1. This vehicle far surpasses the common notation of the word car, and as a matter of fact, I’m going to stop calling it that, because it’s simply more than that. When you look at the Koenigsegg One:1, you will see that it has the same construct of the Agera R, and you wouldn’t think too much into it. That’s where the mistake would be made. The One:1 is something of a project that it’s sole purpose on this planet is too bring the likes of the Veneno, the 918, the P1, and the LaFerrari to their proverbial knees.
For what we know now, the Koenigsegg One:1 has an unknown power plant, but it’s builders have already started bragging about top speeds of 280Mph, or 450 km/h. The Veyron will definitely need to stay in the Artsy Farsty department, because this car is more than ready to decimate any, and all who step forth with a challenge. Under the silky smooth lines of the One:1 lies a labyrinth of carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum, that allow this beast to perform the way it does. Upgraded Carbon Fiber springs, active shock absorbers, self adjusting ride height, Michelin Cup tires, active under-trim air management, and a roof scoop to help in the support of creating the 1 Megawatt of power. Add to that, an 8250 RPM rev limit, and a set of all carbon fiber Koenigsegg Aircore wheels, and your track car for the street is ready Mr. Wayne.
So of course, there’s isn’t any hardcore evidence of what’s under the hood, or what types of engines lie underneath that overly aggressive body. All we know is that there will be six (6) of these made this year, so you’re going to have to expect a vary large price tag to be slapped on it. So with that said, pricing for this amazing looking vehicle won’t be announced anytime soon, but I will say this. You know you’re doing something big, if the same day your vehicle is debuted at the Geneva Auto Show, it also pops up as a free download for the Need For Speed Rivals video game. And yes folks, I’ve downloaded it, and I’m enjoying every minute of game time, I take using the One:1. Stay tuned for more updates on the Koenigsegg One:1.
