Christian von Koenigsegg walks us round the new Koenigsegg One:1

The first sniff of the Koenigsegg One:1 came at the end of 2012 when Cars UK exclusively revealed the first details of Koenigsegg’s Megacar. It took more than a year for Christian von Koenigsegg and his intrepid team to complete the first car, but it was worth the wait.

Probably the supercar star of the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, the One:1 gets 1360 HP and weighs just 1360KG – the the world’s first 1:1 power to curb weight ratio supercar – and has 2G cornering ability and 610kg of downforce at 160mph thanks to active aerodynamics.

That all adds up to the promise of truly spectacular performance – Koenigsegg say the One:1 is good for 280mph and a 0-250mph of a scant 20 seconds – which is enough to put the Koenigsegg One:1 at the top of the supercar speed league.

Ahead of the One:1′s reveal at Geneva, DRIVE got the chance to visit Koenigsegg and see the One:1 being prepared for its debut, with Christina von Koenigsegg himself walking us round his new baby.

It’s worth the watch.
