What It's Like to Ride in a Koenigsegg One:1 [Video]
Meet Tim Burton, better known as ‘Shmee,’ the star and creator of the YouTube supercar-spotting channel, Shmee150. Tim cruises the globe and snaps footage of the world’s most sought after hypercars – his latest exploits are no different. Shmee recently took a ride in the 2014 Koenigsegg One:1 with the company’s chief test driver at the helm, and got a taste of just what kind of power the One:1 puts down. The Swedish supercar develops 1,341-horsepower and weighs in at 1,360 kilograms – effectively giving the One:1 a power-to-weight ratio of one to one, hence the name.

According to the test driver, the version in this video was tuned down to a mere 1,150hp and rode on normal super sport tires instead of the extra-sticky ‘Cup’ rubber. Regardless, he still gets the back end to step out on the turns and slaloms down the company's test track at exceptional speed.
But the Koenigsegg One:1 isn’t just about ferocious power, it’s also a master of aerodynamics. You can see in the wind test image below just how this hypercar cuts through the air like a knife. Impressive.
