Koenigsegg Agera One:1 is the World's First Megacar

Koenigsegg Agera One:1 is the World's First Megacar

An exotic sportscar with 500 horsepower would, by most standards, be pretty powerful. But there exists a superstrada of hypercars with over twice that — thousand-horsepower performance machines like the Bugatti Veyron, McLaren P1 and LaFerrari. Even in such rarified company however, there is a new king of the hill that stands out against all others, and that's the new Koenigsegg Agera One:1.

Koenigsegg, for the uninitiated, is a boutique supercar manufacturer based in Sweden. Founded in 1994 by Christian van Koenigsegg, the company developed not only its own chassis, but also its own engine — a 4.7-liter V8 based on a Ford block and fitted with twin superchargers — that only grew more and more powerful over the years. What started with 646 horsepower in 2002, soon topped 800 and then 1,000. By the time the Koenigsegg Agera R debuted at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, the engine was producing over 1,100 hp — but what you see here is even more powerful than that.

It's called the Agera One:1 because it has a perfectly balanced power-to-weight ratio. That is, for every kilogram it weighs, it has one horsepower to motivate it. That comes partially down to the carbon-fiber chassis that is 20 percent lighter than previous versions of the Agera, but also to more power. For the One:1, Koenigsegg redeveloped its engine into a 5.0-liter V8 with a pair of variable turbochargers to produce 1,341 horsepower and 1,011 lb-ft of torque. Because that horsepower figure converts metrically into a full megawatt of power, Koenigsegg is calling this the world's first megacar — eclipsing the supercar and hypercar labels attached to “lesser” performance machines.

To go with all the added juice, Koenigsegg has fitted active suspension and aerodynamic aids that use satellite information to adjust itself to the road and track conditions. Koenigsegg even 3D printed the turbo housings and titanium exhaust system to save weight. As a result, the Agera One:1 can corner at two g-forces and reach a theoretical top speed of 440 kilometers per hour. That's equivalent to 273 miles per hour, faster than the 431 km/h (268 mph) top speed clocked by the 1,200-horsepower Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

So, how much would owning the world's first megacar cost you? We dare not ask, and Koenigsegg isn't saying. It pre-sold the only examples it will make before the car was officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier in March.


Koenigsegg One: 1 Supercar Introduced as World's First Mega Car

You're looking at the world's fastest production car.

The hotly-anticipated Koenigsegg One: 1 has arrived ahead of its unveiling in Geneva, with the Swedish firm proclaiming it the world's fastest production car and world's first Mega car. That's not a new level sitting above hypercars, but a name referring to its 1,000-kilowatt power rating, equating to 1,341 hp. The 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 powerplant also generates a staggering 1,011 lb-ft of torque, and is wrapped inside a body that weighs just 1,341 kg giving it the 1:1 power-to-weight ratio after which the car is named.

Based on the Agera R but with a 20 percent lighter chassis by virtue of using advanced carbon fiber, the Koenigsegg One: 1 sits on carbon-fiber wheels staggered 19/20 inches front/rear, housing the Agera R's ceramic discs and connected to an upgraded triplex suspension with active shocks and carbon bevel springs. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a bespoke seven-speed dual clutch box and electronic differential, and Koenigsegg is confident the One: 1 will set a host of new acceleration records, with 0-248 mph said to be as quick as 20 seconds and top speed surpassing 273 mph. But it's not all about straight-line speed.

The One: 1 develops up to 2g of cornering force, while its aerodynamic wizardry allows it to produce over 600 kg of downforce when travelling over 160 mph, the same figure McLaren quotes for the P1. Inside, an advanced cabin boasts seats made of carbon fiber and memory foam, while an active chassis system adjusts ride height and shock absorbing using data taken from 3G and GPS readings. Only six of these masterpieces will be built, all of which have been pre-sold at a price of around $2 million. Look out for live shots of the One: 1 from the Geneva show floor.
