The Koenigsegg One:1 is not yet completely ready for delivery and the prototype currently undergoing testing is only running at 1,150 PS – even if that’s 210 PS shy of what it will be making when fully completed, it’s still hugely fast and impressive.

Koenigsegg Said to be Mulling More Affordable Model

And by more affordable we mean half the price of an Agera (~$650,000/€420,000), but still very expensive compared to regular supercars. It would obviously have to retain its Koenigsegg qualities and traits, but it would make the brand ever so slightly more popular or mainstream.

115HP Ford Focus vs 1,140HP Koenigsegg Doesn't Make Any Sense But It's Fun to Watch…


Read more

Whichever way you want to look at it, placing a diesel-powered Ford Focus Station Wagon with some 115-horses under the hood against one of the world's fastest production vehicles, the almighty Koenigsegg Agera R that pulls 1,140-horses (or 1,115HP for the pre-2013MY) from a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8, is a lost battle.

Christian von Koenigsegg, the man behind the hypercar building company that bears his name, takes the time to explain what changes they are operating to the engine that will power the insane One:1, compared to the one they use in the Agera R on which it’s based.

The One:1 is not only Koenigsegg's, but the world’s fastest production car as well, or it will be as soon as somebody keeps the throttle buried for long enough. Expect to see that happening sometime in or after April, when the car will also debut in China, at the Beijing auto show.

One doesn’t take a car that can do 280 miles her hour (450+ km/h) lightly. Even in the photos, browsing through, the ridiculous numbers it was built to achieve don’t go out of focus for one second.

Loony Koenigsegg One:1 to Star in the Need for Speed Game Rivals


Read more

The new Koenigsegg One:1 is a car whose performance figures are so cartoonish, its only place, really, are video games. The first to get it is the new Need for Speed game called Rivals, though in it, the Swedish car will probably blend right into all the arcadey madness going on – the only difference will is that it will actually be much closer to its real-life behavior than any of the others…

Koenigsegg Reveals One:1 Supercar; Has 1,360 Horses for Just 1,360kg!


Read more

Supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg chose to name its new supercar the One:1, after its metric power to weight ratio, which is precisely that (in PS/kg), or, in other words, it puts out as much horsepower as it has kilograms to carry around. This makes it lighter than the already mind-bogglingly fast Agera on which it’s based, thanks to a chassis and body combo that’s reportedly 20 percent lighter.

As if the regular Agera with its 965-horses wasn't bonkers enough, Koenigsegg is stepping it up several notches with the Agera One:1 that will come with around 1,400-horses moving just 1,400kg of mass (there's a rumor about a 1,340hp / 1,340kg ratio, but the first numbers come from Christian Von Koenigsegg himself).

After the marketing plot that was 3D, the next big thing to lure consumers to change their television sets and related devices (think recorders and players) is the promise of even higher definition display technology, including Ultra HD or 4K (UHD) and in the near future, Full Ultra HD or 8k (or FUHD – no kidding and stop giggling).

Koenigsegg Agera S Hundra Tries Bugatti Veyron On for Size in Lengthy Video

These are good times for those wealthy enough to purchase a hypercar, and despite many regions of the world battling it out with an acute state of economic uncertainty, the market still offers up a wide selection to choose from.

For the more discerning and restrained older customer, there is the Bugatti Veyron – the classic choice, while for the more flamboyant (Oriental) buyer there is the 100th car Koenigsegg has ever built, the suggestively-named Agera S Hundra. Well, actually not this particular one, because its gold-laden interior is going to be used by a wealthy Malaysian collector who commissioned it for himself.

Now that we've pretty much confirmed that a number of exotic supercars used in the filming of the "Need for Speed" movie in California are replicas from a detailed set of close-up shots, these fresh pictures from our new friends at Mendocinosportsplus (MSP) make a lot more sense – would you ever imagine any movie maker endangering so many rare, multi-million dollar vehicles?

In one scene, we see the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, of which only 20 examples were built in real life, chasing what we assume to be a clone of the all-new McLaren P1 and the a Koenigsegg Agera R in a very tight turn.

We have to admit that we were really impressed when we saw the kind of machinery the producers of the upcoming "Need for Speed" movie were able to get their hands on – a McLaren P1, Koenigsegg Agera R, Spania GTA, not to mention the more than exclusive Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

However, judging from these new photos that surfaced on the Internet, some of these cars seem to be replicas of the original models. A Reddit user posted close-up shots of the McLaren P1 and Koenigsegg Agera R in which the two hypercars look fake.

Does the world need another car movie franchise after the long-running Fast & Furious series, the sixth installment of which opens next month, while a seventh (!) film has been fast-tracked for a summer 2014 release?

Well, as they say, it all depends on whom you ask and, naturally, how good the movie is. You can't answer the latter unless you've seen it, but we can tell you that as car enthusiasts, you can count us in for being interested, especially if we're talking about exotics like the McLaren P1
