Koenigsegg One1 ultra supercar
The Koenigsegg One:1 will be similar in size to the Agera R.

Supercar builder Koenigsegg isn’t known for subtlety in either design or performance, so when word spreads that the Swedish automaker is building its most extreme car yet, we tend to listen closely.

Dubbed the One:1 in reference to the car’s power-to-weight ratio (one horsepower for every kilogram), Cars UK says that only five examples of Koenigsegg’s latest masterpiece will be built. Targeted at customers in China, it’s unclear if the One:1 will even be offered in other markets.

Similar in size to Koenigsegg’s Agera R, the One:1 is expected to be lighter than the production model, and Cars UK speculates that output will range between 932 and 1006kW. That could very well make the One:1 faster than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which can sprint from 0-100km/h in a mere 2.5 seconds.

Expect the Koenigsegg One:1 to be priced in Bugatti Veyron territory, too. Though the car has yet to be finalised, Christian von Koenigsegg is targeting a selling price of roughly $2 million. That makes it on par with the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, but significantly less than the Grand Sport Vitesse, likely its main performance rival.

When you look at it that way, the $2 million Koenigsegg One:1 is a solid bargain, especially in light of its limited production numbers. If you have that sort of money.
