Koenigsegg Agera One:1 Has Bugatti In Its Sights At Geneva

The Koenigsegg Agera R is about to become more insane than ever. The Swedish supercar-maker is teasing the hot new Koenigsegg Agera One: 1 ahead of its Geneva debut, and Koenigsegg promises big power, and even more impressive performance from its ultra-rare exotic. 

The Koenigsegg Agera One:1 is named after its power to weight ratio: one metric horsepower for every kilogram of weight. That means the 1340 kilogram (2954 pound) Swedish sensation will pack 1340 metric horsepower – 1321 hp to you and I – under its mid-mounted carbon-fiber engine cover. That’s 187 hp more than what the regular Agera R’s twin-turbo 5.0-liter V-8 makes.To put that in perspective, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport ‘only’ makes 1184 hp using a quad-turbo 8.0-liter W-16 engine, and it weighs in at around 4100 pounds.

I’ll pause for a second to allow you to pick your jaw up off the floor.

Koenigsegg then says that its hypercar will be able to come to a standstill from 249 mph in less than 10 seconds. Meanwhile, the Veyron Super Sport needs 25.6 seconds to accelerate from zero to just 200 mph and then back to zero again.
