So what exactly is a Megacar? The Koenigsegg One:1 you see here makes 1341 bhp, which equals to 1 megawatt of power. The mega part is not that, the car weighs 1310 kgs with all it’s fluids, even if you add roughly 30 litres of fuel, the power -to-weight ratio would still be 1:1. The car is so mega they didn’t bother timing 0 – 100 as it does 0 – 400 kmph in 20 seconds, it will also do a 400 – 0 in 10 seconds.
So Koenigsegg will only make ‘Six’ such cars which boast of this dream power-to-weight equation of 1:1. The engine is a 5.0 litre V8 with double overhead camshafts married to 7-speed dual clutch gearbox and an electronic differential. The features they have added to this car include unique track optimized aero winglets, extended venturi tunnels and side splitters, Le-Mans inspired active wing configuration and optimized active undertrim air management. Large air vents for improved cooling, roof air scoop to support the 1 Megawatt of power, 8250 RPM rev limit, complemented with Custom made Michelin Cup Tires, upgraded rear triplex suspension with carbon bevel springs and active shock absorbers and ride height, combined with upgraded revolutionary Koenigsegg Aircore carbon fiber wheels.
In order to give the One:1 maximum flexibility when it comes to power delivery, Koenigsegg has implemented its patented variable turbo geometry technology in the One:1 program. This technology gives improved response and more low-end torque than otherwise possible. As an example the One:1 engine has over 1000 Nm of torque between 3000 to 7500 rpm, which is truly unheard of.
It was difficult typing all of this, as half of the time i was busy looking at the car itself, it’s fast but it doesn’t look stupid. It’s Epic!
