And now the heady One:1 can add a new feather to its cap – the title of the world’s fastest car from zero to 300 km/h (186 mph) and back to zero. That time? A sweltering 17.95 seconds. It’s a daring run and one that knocked the firm’s own 1,140hp Agera R from its podium, which achieved a time of 21.19 seconds in 2011. Take a look at video from that sensational test session below.
In fact, he finished with his hands off. He complemented his kilometer record with a similarly momentous run from zero to 200mph and back to zero, in only 20.71 seconds.
Amazingly, Koenigsegg estimates they could feasibly go faster still. The car used during the test – a One:1 development prototype – weighs about 110 pounds heavier than the road-going customer-built supercars, due to the addition of a roll cage for driver safety.
This is truly a “don’t try this at home moment” though given that only six One:1 supercars were built, getting a hold of one likely won’t be easy.
