Say Hello to the Koenigsegg Agera One: 1
No this is not a rip off of the my friends, this is far from that. The Koenigsegg One: 1 is a stupid name until you learn how the vehicle got the name and then it makes the name simply incredible. As today we see how horsepower is impressive but never the sole factor for performance as there are factors such as weight, suspension and drag coefficients to take into effect. If we look at the engineering that goes into the Koenigsegg Agera One: 1 we see that you have everything you need for the makings of the fastest street-legal vehicle in the world.
Koenigsegg has let their engineers out of their cells and possibly supplied them with some potent bath salts because these stats are simply face eating excitement. As the performance benchmark, manufacturers strived to get a ratio of one BHP to one Kg making more a perfect ratio of 1:1. Since the Agera One: 1 weighs 1400kg means that, yes mathematicians it delivers 1400bhp. This is an astounding amount of power to ask to be given only a 5.0 liter V8 and still be somewhat dependable. If we look closer at the engine then we see two massive turbos that help push this 3,086lb Agera up to speed very quickly.
With this power to weight ratio being equal would deliver stats that Koenigsegg stated were a 0-60 time of 2.5secs and a suggested top speed of 280 mph. Now of course companies can proclaim any stats but the proof is in the pudding. If we look at rivals such as the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport we see a top speed of 267.8 mph although contested at the moment by Hennessey Performance and their Venom GT (265.7 mph). But if we look at the Bugatti alone we see 200 fewer horsepower and nearly 1,000lbs heavier. So if we look at the math it seems that there is the possibility for the car to actually perform a task such as reaching 280mph in a production vehicle.
So how much does all this fun cost? The price is not listed yet but it seems that there will be a price of around $2,000,000.00 for a car that you will never take to such extremes but at least you can brag to your friends about how it can. The Koenigsegg Company is not full of dummies as they use the latest materials to construct some of lands greatest engineering feats and when it comes to bragging rights, Billionaires love to brag. And it seems that there has already been eight buyers of the model and so therefore there are those that believe if Koenigsegg says it then they mean it.
