The Koenigsegg One:1 has been unveiled ahead of its official debut in a press release issued today by the Swedish hypercar manufacturer. This car was designed to celebrate 20 years of Koenigsegg crafting automobiles, and only six customer cars and one test car will be created.
Koenigsegg is calling the One:1 a “Megacar,” as it is the first homologated production car with 1 Megawatt of power (1,360 hp). Even more exciting is the 737 lb-ft of torque from 3,000 to 7,500 RPM, according to an article posted today on Jalopnik. All of this power originates from a revised version of Koenigsegg’s 5.0-liter turbocharged V8 engine.
The One:1 uses a new variable turbocharger with internals created by a 3D printer. This allowed Koenigsegg to create a turbocharger that performs exactly how they want it to, resulting in improved response and bottom-end torque. The exhaust end piece was also 3D printed and is made of titanium, saving 400 grams of weight when compared to its aluminum counterpart.
The carbon fiber chassis and body are 20% lighter than the Agera thanks to a new carbon fiber weave. A fully active aerodynamic system keeps the body and car itself grounded at high speeds with independent left and right flaps under the front splinter and a hydraulically actuated top-mounted dual-plane rear wing. This system, along with the car’s overall aerodynamics, create 1,345 lbs of downforce at 160 mph.
New technology has been added to the Koenigsegg including 3G and GPS controlled Predictive Active Chassis and Aero Track Mode. What does this mean? It means the car’s active chassis and aerodynamics will be set-up for tracks depending on the car’s coordinates. You will be able to adjust the car for certain sections of a track, so when the One:1 reaches that coordinate on the GPS, it will automatically adjust to those pre-adjusted settings. Koenigsegg has also created a new app that will record telemetry, performance, lap times and more from the car itself.
All of the examples of the Koenigsegg One:1 are already pre-sold and the car itself will debut March 3 at the Geneva Motor Show.
