Yesterday news broke of the new Koenigsegg One:1 crash at the Nürburgring during test laps to set a new record that should rival the hyper trio and beat them as well. That didn’t work out well and the car got blistered through a corner causing major damage to the front, side and rear of the Koenigsegg One:1.
Here is what Koenigsegg had to say about the crash:
Yes. All OK except the car, which will be rebuilt in time. https://t.co/XaZpuTD7Pk

Koenigsegg will be rebuilding the Koenigsegg One:1 in hopes of going back at it and beating the Porsche 918 Spyder’s 6 minute 57 seconds record set in 2013 – we want something a lot faster, if Koenigsegg want to back its claims with their flagship coupe.
Koenigsegg are indeed sad about the incident but they are glad that the car was up to par in terms of protecting the driver from any bodily harm, they also said that this isn’t the first time a Koenigsegg has been crashed on the infamous Nürburgring. I’m a fan of the Koenigsegg One:1, it produces 1,341 hp and 1,011 lb-ft of torque from it’s twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 engine and hits 62 mph in 2.6 topping out at 273 mph. What’s not to like?
