Koenigsegg plans to build just six examples of the 1,341-horsepower One:1 the Swedish supercar manufacturer revealed at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, and one of those six cars, believed to be the only example with right-hand drive, belongs to The BHP Project.
The BHP Project is a group of well-heeled car enthusiasts in the U.K. that joined forces and actually placed an order for a One:1. They recently had their car delivered and from time to time plan to upload video of their experiences with it to their YouTube channel. The first two videos in the series show some high-speed runs, which took place at the recent VMax200 event in the U.K.
Behind the wheel in these videos is Koenigsegg’s official test driver Robert Serwanski, who personally delivered the One:1. Unfortunately, the car was running on regular pump gas which limits its output to approximately 1,160 hp. To access the full 1,341 hp, the car needs to be running on ethanol-blended fuel. Nevertheless, as the videos confirm, even in this limited mode the One:1 is still fantastically fast.
Power in the One:1 comes from Koenigsegg’s own twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine, which is mated to the firm’s own seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The car gets its name because it has one horsepower, measured in metric figures, for every kilogram of weight.
Note, since the One:1’s debut, Koenigsegg has launched a new model, the Regera, whose output is even higher, registering at 1,500 hp thanks to its sophisticated Direct Drive system.
