The One:1 is Koenigsegg's top-range model in the Agera model line aimed at becoming the fastest car not only in speed, but also on the track. It is aptly named for its equal power-to-weight ratio (metric horsepower to kilogram).
Koenigsegg has built just over 100 cars since it began production out of a converted fighter jet hangar in 2003. Each car is hand-built to exacting specifications and excruciating detail at Koenigsegg’s factory in Ängelholm, Sweden. The One:1, pronounced as a ratio (“one-to-one”), is the company’s most radical accomplishment thus far. The strange name is representative of the nearly inconceivable 1:1 power to weight ratio. That’s 1341 hp (when running on E85) in a vehicle that weighs just 1360 kg with all fluids and a half tank of fuel. The One:1 will see its driver from 0 to 250 mph in just 20 seconds and can theoretically reach a 273 mph top speed – take it for a spin and try hitting that mark yourself. This rocket ship with wheels intends to set a new lap record at the Nürburgring once management at the famous racing venue allows lap records to be set again. With each of the six $2.4 million hypercars already sold, getting a hand on the wheel of this ultra-exotic in Forza Motorsport 6 is the closest the rest of us may ever get.
The Koenigsegg One:1 features a tuned up 5.0L (5,032 cc) twin-turbocharged V8 engine, with 1341 hp (1000 kW) at 7,500 rpm and 1011 ft·lb (1371 N·m) of torque at 6,000 rpm. Since 1360 metric horsepower (PS) equals 1 megawatt (MW), the One:1 is often called the first "megacar". The One:1 also has a higher redline over its lesser counterparts and is unique in that it has an equal power-to-weight ratio of 1 metric horsepower/PS per 1 kilogram.
The One:1 was built with a stronger focus on track performance than Koenigsegg's preceding models, but to achieve their goal with the car, Koenigsegg had to sacrifice a few elements. An airscoop sits on the removable roof, making it impossible to stow the roof into the boot unlike previous models. Koenigsegg took advantage of this to model the front to create more downforce, reducing boot capacity by 40%.
The One:1 uses a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox with paddle shifters on the steering wheel and is rear-wheel drive. With 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.7 seconds, 0-100 mph (161 km/h) in 4.55 seconds, 0-186 mph (300 km/h) in 11.92 seconds, and a theoretical top speed of 273 mph (440 km/h), as well as having set records on tracks like Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and Suzuka Circuit, the One:1 is one of the fastest production cars in the world.
The Koenigsegg One:1 currently stands as the fastest production car in the game in terms of overall performance, with very quick acceleration (0-100 mph (161 km/h) in less than 4.6 seconds) and an extreme top speed of 270 mph (435 km/h), making it among one of the fastest cars in the series in terms of stock top speed. To complement its very quick acceleration and extreme top speed, the One:1 also has decent cornering abilities and highly responsive braking, making it suited for medium-length and especially high-speed tracks. The sole disadvantage of the One:1 lies in its power – off the line, the One:1 has to deal with a lot of wheelspin even up to fourth gear (assuming Traction Control is disabled), making the car harder to control than most hypercars. This means that a driver behind the wheel of a One:1 has to be a lot more careful than normal when exiting corners, especially with regards to managing the throttle, effectively making this car more recommended for advanced drivers.
