Koenigsegg One:1 decimates all in 0-300km/h-0 test

Of all the exotic sports cars in the world, the most exotic in my mind is the Koenigsegg One:1. This is a hypercar in every sense of the word packing 1340hp under the hood with a curb weight of 1340kg. That gives the car a power to weight ratio of 1:1, which is where the name comes from. The 1:1 power to weight ratio doesn’t quite work here in the states where the 1340kg weight comes out to a bit under 3000 pounds.

Koenigsegg One:1 decimates all in 0-300km/h-0 test

A new video of the One:1 has turned up that shows it destroying the record for sprinting from a stop to 300 km/h and then returning to a full stop. In the test, the driver takes the car a bit past the 300 km/h speed needed with 321.9 km/h reached.

Clearly Koenigsegg wanted to give those of us in the US something to be impressed with since that 321.9 km/h speed converts to 200mph. The sprint from naught to 300 km/h back to naught took the One:1 17.95 seconds.

It’s hard to wrap your brain around that kind of acceleration and stopping power. The One:1 beat the old record, which was set by the Koenigsegg Agera R by 3.24 seconds. While the car did beat the official world record, it was done in practice not in a sanctioned event so no record actually changes hands. That official record run will come later.
