For the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg created the one:1 based on the Agera platform. Seven examples, including one prototype, were built during 2014 and 2015.
This was one of the most exclusive production car programs ever envisaged in the car industry. One:1 is named after its capability to produce 1 megawatt of power from a single car – it is the first homologated production car in the world with one Megawatt of power. The hp-to-kg curb weight ratio is an astonishing 1:1. To achieve this 1360 bhp, Koenigsegg had to redesign the turbocharger.
To further enhance the One:1’s pedigree, Koenigsegg manufactured the the chassis from a lighter-grade carbon fiber. The One:1 will produced in a limited series of 7 cars that includes prototype. All the six customer versions have been pre-sold ahead of the car’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
The One:1 truly raised the performance bar. The One:1 featured new, unique solutions that enhance track performance without compromising top speed or everyday usability, with a stunning visual appearance to go with it.
Examples of features: unique track-optimized aero winglets, extended venturi tunnels and side splitters, Le-Mans inspired active wing configuration and optimized active under trim 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.
Koenigsegg was the first extreme car manufacturer to take steps toward green technology with the release of the biofuel CCXR in 2007. The One:1, a sibling of the highly competitive Agera R, follows in the footsteps of the CCXR as it also runs on E85 biofuel, race fuel or normal gasoline.
