Christian von Koenigsegg shared some spicy info about the company's upcoming gem, the One:1.

First and foremost, the "One:1" designation refers to the weight-horsepower ratio which will be a true 1:1 since other cars achieved this by measuring dry weight while the One:1 will have it including water, oil, fuel and other fluids. This is what Christian said who added the car will produce 1,400 bhp (1,044 kW).

Koenigsegg's computers have shown the car will be the quickest in the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h), 0-186 mph (0-300 km/h) and the 0-248 mph (0-400 km/h) sprints. In fact, the Swedish company mentions hitting the 248 mph mark from a standstill will take an amazing 20 seconds, which would make it 25 seconds quicker than the mighty Veyron. Top speed will be of at least 280 mph (450 km/h) which is considerably more than the 258 mph (415 km/h) of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition. We should mention the unrestricted Veyron WRE can do 431 km/h (268 mph) but the production version was sold with an electronic top speed limiter which could happen on the One:1 as well.

The company's owner announced a prototype will be ready before the end of 2013 with production limited to six cars. Although it's price is going to be "substantially higher" compared to the Agera S, demand for the One:1 is strong but even so Koenigsegg believes they will lose money on this car. On the other hand, the One:1 will increase the brand's awareness and should create future profits on upcoming models, while the research and development put into the car will find its way on "lesser" models.

Christian von Koenigsegg concluded the interview by saying "no one needs a car like this" but "they just need to want one."
