Koenigsegg has fully revealed the highly anticipated One:1 which is set to become the world's fastest production car.

The Swedish marque has created what they describe as being a mega car as the One:1 offers 1 megawatt of power which means it delivers no less than 1,341 HP/PS (986 kW) and a jaw-dropping peak torque of 1,371 Nm (1,011 lb-ft) at 6,000 rpm from a V8 5.0-liter aluminum engine. All that power is wrapped around in a body weighing 1,341 kg (2,956 lbs) which provides the vehicle with a magic 1:1 power-to-weight ratio.

Power is transferred to the wheels via a dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox and an electronic differential which enables the model to perform the 0-248.5 mph (0-400 km/h) run in about 20 seconds while stopping from that speed takes around 10 seconds. It needs only 28 meters to come to a full stop from 62 mph (100 km/h).

The braking system has been carried over from the Agera R so the One:1 packs 397mm front power-assisted ventilated ceramic discs with six-piston calipers while at the back it has ventilated ceramic discs measuring 380mm with four-piston calipers. Koenigsegg has updated the rear triplex suspension with active shock absorbers and carbon bevel springs.

The One:1 sits on 19-inch front / 20-inch carbon fiber wheels covered in custom Michelin Cup Tires which have a speed rating of 273 mph (440 km/h). The engine is compatible not only with normal gasoline, but also with E85 biofuel as well as race fuel, while the weight of the car is distributed 44 percent front / 56 percent rear, just like in the Agera R.

Set to be showcased at the 84th Geneva Motor Show, the Koenigsegg One:1 will be built in a limited series of six units and all cars have already been sold.
