first mega car, the Koenigsegg One:1 has now destroyed the record of
0-300-0kmph with a time of 17.95 seconds.
record for the acceleration and deceleration record was held by the Koenigsegg
Agera R driven by Koenigsegg’s very own test driver, Robert Serwanski.
Serwanksi this year took the One:1 mega car to their Angelholm Test track in
Sweden where he his team and Christian Von Koenigsegg himself were running test
to beat the record set by themselves with their older Agera R model.
Koenigsegg One:1 is the world first mega car because it produces 1360bhp which
equals to 1MegaWatt of power and weighs 1360kgs when it is completely brimmed
up with fluids and half a tank of fuel. This gives it a power to weight ratio
of one horse power per kilogram, hence the name One:1. The car is powered by an in-house built
Koenigsegg aluminium 5,0L V8 engine that produces 1371Nm of torque and
Koenigsegg claims it can do 0-400 kmph in just about 20 seconds and back down
to 0 in 10 seconds more. The car is completely hand built with groundbreaking
technology and made complete of carbon fibre and aluminium.
The Agera R
previously held the record for 0-300-0kmph in 21.19 seconds. The video shows
with the help of the V-BOX data, that the One:1 was able to achieve the record
in 17.95 seconds. 3.24 seconds quicker than their previous record from 2011.
What was more astounding is that Serwanki did it without his hands. The
traction control in the One:1 is so sophisticated that you just don’t need to
use your hands at all to steer the car. Serwanki only floored the throttle and
then after crossing the 300kmph mark jammed the brake pedal, it was all that
was required and the video proves it.
