Koenigsegg One:1 #00 Development Car Up For Grabs

Written By:

One of the rarest modern-day hypercars, the Koenigsegg One:1 is up for sale once again. The model was listed for sale on a couple of occasions over the past year. Only six examples of this engineering masterpiece were built and all managed to quickly find homes except one.

Now, the Swedish manufacturer is left with the #00 development car which was on display at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. This particular model served as a basis for the six production units that were sold.

This particular model was driven just for 11,426 km and the asking price for this beauty is a whopping amount of $6 million (approximately Rs 41 Cr). Even though it served as the test car, it still remains in pristine condition and will be delivered with an 'extensive factory refresh'.

The #00 megacar was also used by Christian von Koenigsegg and his team for the development of ground-breaking technologies such as 3D-printed titanium parts and turbo housing, Variable Turbo Geometry, Active Chassis and Active Aero.

The One:1 is undeniably impressive as it still holds the title for the fastest production car ever to lap Suzuka and Spa-Francorchamps. The powerplant in this car is an astounding 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 which churns out a massive 1340bhp (1360Ps) and the whole car weighs only 1360 kg.

It means that the One:1 has a perfect power-to-weight ratio of 1Ps per kilogramme. So, now we know why Koenigsegg termed this car as ‘One:1'. It is also capable of sprinting from 0-400 km/h in exactly 20 seconds and has a top speed of 450 km/h.

One of the most disappointing facts is that Koenigsegg is about to part ways with the final One:1 car, so the manufacturer won't be able to attempt a record lap at the Nordschleife when the speed limits are lifted next year.
