Geneva Live: Koenigsegg One:1 unveiled, all 6 production units sold
A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.
Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg has unveiled the One:1. The company calls the One:1 a ‘Megacar,’ indicating its 1 Mega Watt power output.
Only six units of the One:1 will be manufactured and Koenigsegg has announced that they have already been sold out.
The car uses a 5.0-liter all aluminium V8 engine to develop 1,341 hp and a peak torque output of 1,371 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The car weighs a meagre 1,341 kg, giving it its name and the magical 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. All that power goes to the wheels via a dual clutch 7-speed gearbox and an electronic differential.
The One:1 can go from 0-400 kph in around 20 seconds and 400 kph to 0 in half that time. Stopping power comes from the 397 mm power-assisted ventilated ceramic disc brakes equipped with six-piston calipers at the front and 380 mm discs with four-piston calipers at the rear.
The manufacturer has also updated the rear suspension with active shock absorbers and carbon bevel springs. Interestingly, the V8 on the One:1 can run on standard petrol, E85 biofuel and race fuel.
