The BHP Project has released new pictures of the manufacturing process of their RHD Koenigsegg One:1.
As you can see from the pictures, the machine is starting to take shape. The BHP Project team explains that “all of those countless and painstakingly long hours putting all the small bits and pieces together are really paying off now”.
The body panels of the car have already been fitted, while the interior is nearing completion and will soon be fitted too. Most of the body parts will be finished in blue tinted carbon fiber, while other components will be finished in traditional carbon fiber.
Jens Sverdrup from Koenigsegg explains the manufacturing process so far. “The car is now on its final stages and will go through set up and test drive after Christmas. On station 2 it starts with a naked finished monocoque. Developed and built in-house using several different types of Koenigseggs special recipe pre pre carbon fiber, utilizing aluminum honeycomb cores as well as divinycell cores and baking in EPDM for sound insulation and vibration damping in strategic areas”.
The “world's fastest homologated production car” has 1 Megawatt of power which translates into 1,341 HP (1,000 KW) and 1,371 Nm (1,011 lb-ft) of torque. Power is provided by a twin-turbo V8 5.0-liter engine.
