You might not be surprised if we tell you that fastest new speed record is set by Koenigsegg One:1. It is because in 2011 the fastest record was also held by another Koenigsegg model, the Agera R. The world first supercar with 1360 hp and 1360 kilograms make it perfect one:1 power to weight ratio. On paper it sounds pretty astonishing and hence to prove dominance in world fastest 0-300km-0 record, the Swedish supercar was put on test in the real world.
On June 8 Koenigsegg One:1 development version was driven on brand’s own test track at the former air force course in Angelholm. Test driver Robert Serwanski behind the wheel clocked six different speed and acceleration figures. The new number shattered previous records held by Koenigsegg Agera R in 2011.
The main record time clocked was from 0-300 km/hr and back to stand-still. One:1 clocked it in 17.95 seconds, full 3.24 seconds faster than Agera R. It is also to be noted that Koenigsegg One:1 drove with a safety cage which is available for customers as an option. This cage weighs 50 kilograms more than standard Supercar. Without the roll cage, the record times could be much better. It also sets fastest 0-200-0 mph record of 20.71 seconds. Watch out the amazing record-setting video of the marvellous Swedish machine.
