Green is the color of envy. It also happens to be the paintjob of the 650S Spider that McLaren Middle East oh-so-kindly loaned to Shmee150 so he could join a run of 50 other supercars in the United Arab Emirates.

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


Read more

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.

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.
