Default Re: Move over Hypercars, the Megacar is here - the Koenigsegg One:1 (1341 Horses)

How fast is fast? Today we've got a megacar churning out 1341 horses. Tomorrow that will be upped to 1500 odd and then a monstercar would beat it by a few more. As impractical as it sounds, the pure adrenaline rush when and if you would ever get a chance to take it out to the tracks would be worth the countless man-hours put into designing these beauties.

Koenigsegg knows a thing or two about design. What a looker!

Inside Koenigsegg Season 2 on /DRIVE
Preparing the One:1 for the Geneva motor show.
What an insane car, Koenigsegg and Pagani are fast becoming my favorite car manufacturers.
The best part about Koenigsegg is that all the engineering is pretty much in house, massive respect for that.

Want to know more about 3D printing and laser scanning used to the One to 1? Here is the second video, narration by Christian von Koenigsegg himself.

The One:1 will debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next month. Koenigsegg will bring 2 cars to the festival. One car will participate in the Michelin Super Car run at Lord March’s event and the second example will be on static display on the French tyre company’s stand.

Default World's First ''MEGA CAR'' not a Super Car!

Guys and Girls!

Thought i will share about MEGA CAR which will be part of the history of road going automotive. The Koenigsegg One:1!

A homologated production car with a power to weight ratio of 1:1 .
Sounds like a dream number right.?

So the car weighs 1360 kg and has got 1360 HP (around 1 MegaWatt!).

Personally i think this car is an engineering marvel.!

- 5,0L V8 DOHC Twin Turbo with Flex fuel ( any fuel from Ethanol 85 - Gasoline) [0-300kmph= 11.92 s]
- Sequential multipoint fuel injection.
- Variable geometry twin turbo chargers (which are 3D printed)
- 7-speed dual clutch, 1 input shaft transmission.
- Weight distribution: 44% front, 56% rear ( to make it a tad tail happy)
- Advanced high modulus carbon fibre chassis with F1 style honeycomb core and integrated fuel tanks for optimal weight distribution and safety, weighing just 72Kg.
- Ceramic coated Inconel exhaust system manifold and an optional Titanium exhaust outlet.
- Carbon fibre alloy wheels to cope with the 450 kmph top speed.
- Above all it comes with 3Yr Warranty and a price tag of circa INR 18 Crore.

Any ways lets hope that Bugatti or Hennessey comes up with another crazy car soon.

Enjoy some pics below. Please do visit http://koenigsegg.com/one1/ for more pics and videos.

Kudos to the Swedish team.
