Koenigsegg Agera One:1 power output breaks computer

Koenigsegg Agera One:1The first production Koenigsegg Agera One:1 supercar has been delivered in Germany – but only after its incredible 1341hp power output crashed the computers used to register it.

When converted to Germany’s favoured kilowatts unit, the Agera One:1 produces 1000kw. The country’s national vehicle registration computer can, however, accept three-figure power outputs: the original designers never expected a car producing more than 999kw to be sold.

The Koenigsegg thus foiled the registration computer and was unable to be registered until technicians had fixed it…

The news will be savoured by the Swedish firm, which created the One:1 to be the world’s first car with a one-to-one power to weight ratio – it weighs 1341kg and produces 1341hp.

Such figures are expected to give it a top speed of nearly 280mph and acceleration is likely to be restricted only by the tyres’ ability to deliver all this power to the ground. 0-248mph is said to take 20 seconds, giving a flavour of how potent the new Agera One:1 is.

Now the Koenigsegg Agera One:1 is officially on the road in Germany, hopefully independent testing will take place to verify just how fast the new megacar is.

It remains to be seen whether the Agera One:1 will break the DVLA’s registration computer too – question is, how long will we have to wait until we find out?

    Jack: The Hennesey Venom is a hot rod. The Koenigsegg is a homologated production vehicle, with stereo, gps, AC and other luxuries. They are a world apart.

    The Venom is legally classified and registered as a Lotus Elise. Your purchase papers will reflect that. It is not a completely independent chassis engineered from the ground up. A Lotus body and structure is used.

    The acceleration of my 1972 VW Campervan with a Porsche 911 engine is “restricted only by the tyres’ ability to deliver all this power to the ground.”

    Unfortunately, I can’t boast a 1:1 Power to weight ratio – especially when camping
