Only 6 of the $2,000,000 Swedish machines to be built

Are you ready for the most ridiculous automotive stat, well, ever? Swedish hypercar specialist Koenigsegg is boasting their new vehicle will feature a one-to-one power-to-weight ratio of 1,340 horsepower to 1,340 kilograms (2,950 pounds). I’m not sure which is more ludicrous — the 1,340 horses under the hood or the Kate Moss-on-coke-diet-like 1,340 kilograms of weight. Absurd. Aptly dubbed the the Agera One:1, Koenigsegg’s latest masterpiece achieves its scale by lacing the hypercar in carbon fiber (including its monocoque chassis) while powering it with a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8. That’s good enough, Koenigsegg hopes, to notch a world record top speed of 280 mph. Enough for founder Christian Koenigsegg to dub it the world’s first MegaCar (due to its 1,340 hp equalling a megawatt). The Agera One:1 also features a unique and highly active aerodynamic and suspension system highlighted by a Le Mans-inspired top mounted movable wing — the first ever on a production vehicle. It can generate massive amounts of downforce and grip for the turns, but can then smooth things out on straightaways for more slippery speeds. With a price tag of about $2,000,000 the Koenigsegg Agera One:1 won’t come cheap — but seeing as they’re only building 6, and they’ve all been long spoken for, it won’t be coming to pedestrians at all.
