Default Wild 1322bhp Koenigsegg One:1 to challenge Bugatti Veyron






Quote:
This is believed to be the first picture of the Koenigsegg One:1, so called because its power output of 1340hp (1322bhp) matches its kerb weight of 1340kg.

Details of the extreme Bugatti Veyron rival are scarce, although insiders have revealed the car will generate 600kg of downforce, aided by the enormous rear wing, and more than 2G of lateral grip under cornering.
It has also been suggested the car features active aerodynamic devices and what is described as an active chassis, all of which adjust to keep the car in its optimum specification depending on use.

Visually, bar the rear wing, the car bears a strong resemblance to the Koenigsegg Agera.

The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and Grand Sport Vitesse, powered by a 8.0-litre, quad-turbocharged W16 engine, both develop 1184bhp. Rumours suggest that Koenigsegg may not fit a limiter to the One:1 in an effort to eclipse the Bugatti's world record top speed of 258mph.

Meanwhile, the quoted downforce of 600kg is equivalent to that generated by the McLaren P1 at 160mph.

Koenigsegg has not confirmed when the One:1 will be revealed, but next month's Geneva motor show is thought to be likely.

That power to weight ratio is just stupid. The type of stupid that I am infatuated with.

I would gladly strap into this thing at the salt flats and see what it and/or I could do. I would also hope to get out of the car and walk away, but I'm not so sure if that would happen.

I'd cut both of my nuts off with a dull leatherman for one of these.

Maybe il get to see it before they release it to public.

Once in awhile i cover for a driver that drives volvo.

I actually saw one a few months back when i went to deliver but the exhaust tips were sticking out far from the rear and pointed upwards. Not sure why, maybe car crash testing reasons.

removed pics due to not trying to get my ass sued!

Also spotted a tommy kaira that was getting worked on at a bodyshop.

1000 Nm of torque from 3000-7800 rpm

Great googly moogly

Love the 3D printing tech. We are really starting to leverage that here at NASA. It is stunning world changing technology.



EDIT: Just a thought.

THis is a RWD car if I am not mistaken right? How in the hell are you going to be able to use that.

It's crazy that I almost consider this a traditional hypercar, when compared to the hybrids at mclaren/ferrari/porsche

They probably didn't think of that, you should send them a memo. Good catch.

Traditional as in "ten years behind" traditional, right?

Hyper cars have always been about the cutting edge of automotive technology, hence why current hyper cars are hybrids and moving towards electric (perfect for a hyper car IMHO) and eventually hydrogen and possibly nuclear

Weight distribution, suspension damping, gearing, downforce, and . . . big *** tires. Oh, and boost-by-gear is a popular way to control wheel-spin.


People are going to actually have to be a good driver AND pay attention to what they are doing to get the most out of this car and not kill themselves. It's like the Viper of Hyper/super/bonkers cars.
