The owner of Koenigsegg, Christian von Koenigsegg the speaking in Businessweek, gave some very interesting details about the special Agera, the One: 1.
The name comes from the fact that the car will have as many horsepower as many kilos it will weigh. The car is a special order that was placed by a very rich Chinese to Koenigsegg, the car will weigh 1,400 kilos and it will produce 1,400 hp.
According to the simulations done on the computers of the Swedish company, the car will be capable of doing 0-400 km/hour 20 seconds, 25 whole seconds faster than the time it takes the Bugatti Veyron to reach that speed. It will have a top speed of at least
450 km/h , taking the title of fastest production car from Bugatti. However, it is quite possible the car to go on sale with a speed limiter , just as did the Bugatti which, although it reached a 431 km with the Veyron Supersport, the production version is likely to reach a top speed of “only ” 415 km/hour.
The concept car will be ready and it will be presented towards the end of 2013, with production limited to only six cars. Nobody knows yet , how much it will cost since von Koenigsegg just said that the price of One: 1 will be quite higher than the value of the Agera S.
von Koenigsegg feels certain that the company will lose some money , as these 6 One: 1 that will hit the market will not cover the costs of research and development of the model, but he expects to increase the reputation of the brand to the public, by creating the fastest production car in the world. von Koenigsegg complement saying that the One: 1 will contribute positively to generate future profits from the upcoming models.ù
