Koenigsegg One:1 Gets Sideways In Need For Speed Rivals Trailer: Video


Very few people will have the privilege of owning a Koenigsegg One:1, but many people will be able to drive it.

The Swedish supercar builder's latest creation is just one bright spot in the star-studded lineup of Need For Speed Rivals, the latest installment of the popular racing video game (and now movie) franchise.

While that list includes rarities like the Lamborghini Veneno and Ferrari F12berlinetta, The One:1 should stand out. Based on the Agera, it's named for its power-to-weight ratio of one horsepower per kilogram. It's a 1,340-kg (2,954-pound) car with 1,340 hp.

The engine that makes this remarkable statistic possible is a 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 featuring bespoke variable-geometry turbochargers and a titanium exhaust system constructed with a special 3D printing process.

That power-to-weight ratio--better than that of a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport--should give the One:1 otherworldly performance. Koenigsegg expects the car to set 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.

Koenigsegg isn't concerned with the top speed. It considers the One:1 to be a track-focused car that prioritizes the driving experience over outright velocity. Nonetheless, it's confident the One:1 could reach a top speed of 273 mph, if they feel like it.

As far as cornering is concerned, the One:1 will be able to dislocate faces with up to 2g of grip. At 160 mph, its many aerodynamic features can produce up to 1,344 pounds of downforce.

In fact, the only thing that will likely be able to catch a One:1 is a One:1 police car. As with most past Need Ford Speed games, Rivals is all about escaping the cops, who are armed with police versions of each of the game's supercars.

A real One:1 costs around $2 million, so the game will be a lot cheaper, even with virtual speeding tickets factored in.
