The Koenigsegg One is fast. And by fast I mean the Road Runner cartoon after replacing the water in its coffee with Red Bull and then taking a shot of adrenaline. Watch the insane Koenigsegg One tear ass across an airstrip in the clip below before I say more.
Automotive enthusiast Shmee150 hit up an abandoned airstrip in Sweden to get personal with the Koenigsegg One:1. He forgot to call me up to join him..
The Koenigsegg One boasts the perfect power-to-weight ratio of just 1. That is including all fluids and the weight of an average sized driver…which is nearly unheard of. Some vehicles can achieve the ideal power-to-weight ratio, but only dry. The Koenigsegg One is named for accomplishing this enormous feat. She also packs more power and is lighter than the epic Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which weighs in at over 4,000 pounds.
The cockpit is pretty much carved out of carbon. Outstanding.
The Koenigsegg supercar brand hails from Sweden and the ‘One’ will top all of their previous supercars, which are already impressive. Enough ego-boosting, however, let us get down to specs. All of the power is produced by a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 engine nestled in a carbon fiber body to lighten the load on the road. It is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission capable of catapulting it from 0-248+ miles per hour in 20 seconds. Think about the rush that must be: 20 seconds. While it is unlikely we will add a Koenigsegg One to our fleet of exotic rental cars, you can get your hands on the wheel of our supercars on the track in just a couple of clicks when you try out our Exotic Driving Experiences!
The One: 1 is so lightweight that even the rims are comprised of carbon fiber.
