Swedes from Koenigsegg have announced at the Geneva Motor Show the launch of the latest model, the supercar One:1. It is an incredibly fast car with a V8 engine of 5.0 liters and 1,340 hp that accelerates faster than a Saturn V.
Since the car weighs only 1,340 kg, it means that the ratio force/weigh is really extraordinary.
In comparison, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport has 1,888 kg and 1184 hp. In fact, the entire car was designed to be lightweight and ultra-fast.
The bodywork is made of carbon fiber and the motor housing has been printed on a 3D printer after a unique model made by Koenigsegg.
The new engine, the low weight and the aerodynamic shape allows it to achieve an acceleration of 2GS, at the level of a fighter plane – from 0 to 399 km/h in 20 seconds. The top speed is 438 km/h. Koenigsegg wants to build only 4 copies of One:1, priced at $2 million.
