Koenigsegg One:1 testing at the Nürburgring as part of lap record preparation

Follow Viknesh

With speed limits no longer in place at the Nürburgring, Sweden’s Koenigsegg is setting out once again to attempt a lap record.

The automaker confirmed a few weeks ago it will be running cars at the ‘Ring over the coming months in preparation for its record attempt.

As previously reported, the preparation work will mostly involve finding a driver intimate with the track and getting he or she familiarized with the car Koenigsegg plans to use.

Today we have video of Koenigsegg running its flagship One:1 at the ‘Ring. Koenigsegg only built seven of the 1,341-horsepower hypercars, including the original prototype, and they’re all sold, so perhaps this is actually a customer example.

Regardless, it looks to be incredibly quick so it will be impressive to see what time Koenigsegg can come up with. The time to beat is the 6:57 set by the Porsche 918 Spyder in 2013.

It should be noted that Koenigsegg is yet to announce what car it will use for the attempt. It’s possible the attempt will be made with the still-in-production Agera RS of which there are 25 being built, as opposed to the extremely limited One:1. Hopefully we’ll find out soon.
