Koenigsegg One:1 Enjoys Devouring The Nurburgring

Almost two months after it was caught trying its luck on the Nordschleife, the Koenigsegg One:1 has returned for yet another run.

The latest footage reveals what seems to be the very same example of the world’s first megacar, as the folks over at the Swedish company have billed it, tackling the German circuit. Probably in preparation of the (inevitable) attempt to break the production car lap record time, which is currently held by the Porsche 918 Spyder, with 6 minutes and 57 seconds.

However, Koenigsegg could attempt to go even further and challenge the Radical SR8’s 6:55 or even the SR8 LM’s 6:48. In any case, the One:1 never really got to prove itself on the Nurburgring after last year’s speed limits (which were lifted this April) were imposed.

In the meantime, the Koenigsegg One:1 has already set a new top speed record at VMax200, with 378 km/h (275 mph), and it also managed to set a new record on another famous track, Belgium’s Spa Francorchamps, with 2:32:14. Responsible for propelling it up to a claimed top speed of 439 km/h (273 mph), is a 5.0-liter V8 engine, which develops 1,341 HP when running in E85 fuel.
