A new supercar that could prove the world’s fastest is set to debut at the
2014 Geneva Motor Show
in early March. That supercar is the highly anticipated Koenigsegg One:1, named so because of its incredible one horsepower per kilogram of weight power to weight ratio.As previously reported
, the One:1 will develop 1,400 horsepower and tip the scales at just 1,400 kilograms (3,086 pounds). Remarkably, the 1,400-kilogram figure includes the weight of all necessary fluids plus that of an average sized driver.
Speaking with GT Spirit
, Koenigsegg founder Christian von Koenigsegg revealed that only six examples of the car will be built, and all of them have been pre-sold. Sorry to any multimillionaires reading this.
Performance, as you would expect given the insane power to weight ratio will be nothing short of amazing. GT Spirit
claims Koenigsegg is confident the car will set new acceleration records for the 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph), 0-300 km/h (0-186 mph) and even 0-400 km/h (0-248 mph) sprints. The latter could be as quick as 20 seconds.
But the claims don’t end there. Given enough track length and suitable tires, the One:1 is said to even be capable of accelerating past 450 km/h (279 mph), based on simulated data. This would give the car the production car land speed record, which currently stands at 267.8 mph, as set in 2010 by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
Though loosely based on Koenigsegg’s existing Agera line of supercars
, the One:1 will feature numerous unique components. Some of these will be a new front-end, carbon fiber wheels, and a fixed roof with a carbon air scoop. The rear section will also be all-new and feature a carbon fin joining the roof with the rear wing.
Press days for the 2014 Geneva Motor Show commence March 6--we can’t wait._______________________________________Follow Motor Authority on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
