Koenigsegg One:1 ready for the Geneva Show

The aim at the Swedish company Koenigsegg is one focused only on performance. Every detail of a Koenigsegg vehicle is measured against the company’s continuing aim: to enhance vehicle performance. This is reflected in everything they do. Nothing is insignificant: the way they use their raw materials, the people working there, the setup of the facilities, the software, tools, systems and maintenance. Every aspect of the development process targets performance. A high performance vehicle is certainly the Koenigsegg One:1.

The Koenigsegg One:1, the vehicle that we’ve heard so much about, is going to be presented at the Geneva Motor Show, in March. As it has already been announced, the vehicle will be manufactured only in six units. The manufacturer hopes that the supercar will become the fastest production car in the world. For the moment, the Bugatti Veyron hold the title of the fastest car in the world.

The Koenigsegg One:1 name is not accidental. One comes from the vehicle’s 1 bhp / 1 kg ratio and this means that the V8 5.0-liter twin-turbo will be able to generate about 1,400 bhp (1,044 kW). And these figures will allow the supercar to reach a 440 km/h (273.4 mph) speed. The hyper car can theoretically reach 280 mph (450 km/h), but of course there will be some limits implemented. The Swiss engineers estimate that it will hit 400 km/h in approximately 20 seconds. The car is wanted to deliver the supreme satisfaction to its customers. It remains to be seen if this will be so.
