The Swedish hypercar maker Koenigsegg claims that their newest iteration of the Agera, the Agera One:1 can not only beat the Bugatti Veyron Supersport’s top speed, but get there twice as fast. That’s quite a claim to make.
The current Agera R can already outpace the 1183 HP Veyron Vitesse, but the Agera One:1 boasts a more impressive (about) 1400 hp and weighs only (about) 1400 kg – explaining the car’s name (One:1…get it?) That’s a seriously impressive power-to-weight ratio, and let’s be honest, that’s the number that really matters in a supercar.
These renders are scans from a catalog, apparently, and as rumors have it, all six of the cars have already been sold to Chinese buyers at an estimated $2 million or more, but honestly, who cares how much it costs at this level?
The Koenigsegg One:1 is the first car to ever achieve the sought-after 1:1 hp/kg power-to-weight ratio while completely topped up on fluids AND the driver (who I assume is an “average” [Chinese?] weight.)
While we’re on numbers, let’s clear up the claims.
Top speed: 280 mph. A production car best.
Zero to 62 mph: 2.6 seconds.
And the most impressive number? The Agera One:1 is said to hit zero to 249 mph in only 20 seconds. I have faith in Koenigsegg, but I’ll believe it when I see it.
Want one? Too bad. You probably don’t live in China, don’t have an extra few million dollars to throw into a car, and probably weren’t invited to buy one of the few being made.
