Watch Koenigsegg One:1 active aero in action

Fri, 11 Apr 2014

Christian Von Koenigsegg and Drive are back with another installment of “Inside Koenigsegg.” Episode 3 focuses on the One:1's active rear wing.

The naked carbon-fiber wing on the 1,360-hp Koenigsegg One:1 gets a front-top mounting, which reportedly causes less turbulence than a rear-mounted wing. The total weight is about 20 pounds, which von Koenigsegg claims is about 1/3 of what most active wing systems weigh.

The video demonstrates the wing functions for high-speed and aero braking, which can be adjusted manually or automatically. The giant wing reminds us of some top-speed cars or maybe something suited for the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Check out episodes one and two, about the car's Geneva motor show debut and the 1,360-hp powerplant here.
