Koenigsegg One:1

Goodwood FoS will play host to the remarkable Koenigsegg One:1. It’s a Top Trumps legend in the making…

Koenigsegg’s mental Agera One:1 will make its UK debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next month.

Dubbed “the world’s first megacar”, the One:1 was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March and has 1,340hp – or 1 megawatt of power, and a power to weight ratio of 1:1.

Mega.

That’s a lot of power – and it all comes from the 5.0-litre V8 engine as seen in the Koenigsegg Agera R, tweaked for an extra 200hp. No fancy hybrid gubbins here, just raw V8 horsepower. And a bit of bio-ethanol fuel.

Its chassis is carbonfibre and 20% lighter than the Agera R’s, and even the wheels are made out of carbonfibre.

0-248mph in a third of a minute!

So, there’s one question we all want to know the answer to… “how fast will it go, mister?” The answer is simply, very flipping fast. It’ll hit 400km/h (that’s 248.5mph) in 20 seconds. It even puts in a case for being the fastest car on the roads.

The company tells us the One:1 features “jet-like 2G cornering capabilities”, partly thanks to the bespoke Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres. We doubt they’re cheap.

Which brings us to the price. Koenigsegg hasn’t officially said how much the One:1 will cost, and all models being built have already sold. We expect the very select owners paid considerably over £2million each.

If, like us, you’ll be happy just seeing it in the metal, touching it and thinking what 0-250mph in 25 seconds feels like, you’ll be able to at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 26-29. We’ll see you there, where we’ll be reporting live.
