Koenigsegg is a name all too familiar to the supercar world because any of their models can without a doubt take on any other hyper car out there with ease. 20 years ago when the brand started back in 2002, no one would have thought a small Swedish company would be annihilating the hyper car market with the likes of Bugatti, Ferrari and Lamborghini.
But what happens when you give a car equal power to weight ratio? We get the insanely gorgeous and powerful Koenigsegg One:1 my all time favorite hyper car.
Christian Von Koenigsegg, owner and CEO of the brand, has been a very pleasant ambassador of his brand – We see him at every show, always hard working and always kind and pleasant. This was perhaps his secret to becoming one of the most known names in the car industry today.
The first car produced by the Swedish car-maker was the CC8S, then the CCR and eventually the car that got Koenigsegg official recognition – The CCX and the CCXR in 2007. But that wasn’t the car that put them on the map, the Agera was their most successful piece of art they produced and from it came the One:1 which featured less weight and more power.
The video is quite the delight. Besides the enchanting white Koenigsegg One:1 on display, we get to see two car guys enjoying what they do and sharing their love for cars. Simple.
The Koenigsegg One:1 is a powerhouse equipped with a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine producing 1,360 PS (1,341-hp) weighing in at 1,360 kg and has an astounding 1,000 NM (lb-ft) of torque.
