The wait is almost over for the next Koenigsegg hypercar! The brand has announced that the Koenigsegg One will grace the stage of the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in Palexpo next month. The Geneva Motor Show is possibly the most exciting show of the year, brimming with new supercars and technology, and the Koenigsegg is geared up to ignite further excitement.
The press days for the 2014 Geneva Motor Show begin on March 4th and 5th, with the show opening to the public the 6th-16th. Following months of speculation and build up, the Koenigsegg One will finally be revealed in full and official detail.
Why all the excitement for the Koenigsegg One?
The answer boils down to simple and old-fashioned automotive rivalry. Koenigsegg has what it takes to melt pavement, and has been working hard to challenge Bugatti in terms of speed and performance. Will the One be the one to strip the Bugatti Veyron of its coveted ‘Fastest Production Car’ title? Let’s analyze what is lurking beneath the hood.

The Koenigsegg One at a glance:
- The name ‘One’ stems from its flawless one-to-one weight to power ratio. Yes, that includes all fluids and an average sized driver.
- It is powered by a 1400 horsepower V8 engine weighing 1400kg.
- Blistering speeds are a given, and the brand is promising record-breaking 0-60 mile per hour time and a new definition of top speed. The rumor is that it can hit 280 miles per hour…the Veyron hits 268.
- In the end, the tires will decide which is fastest. I predict a race for the title and cannot wait to see it!
Looking forward to the Geneva Show, there will be just 5 or 6 Koenigsegg One units made and it seems they are all spoken for.
