The Koenigsegg One:1. Eye-wateringly fast, and mind-bogglingly complicated. And that’s just when we’re talking about the rear wing.
In its own words, Swedish mentalists Koenigsegg have – with the new One:1 – created the ‘world’s first megacar’, thanks to a one-for-one power to weight ratio. And yet despite producing 1360PS (1341bhp) and weighing in at 1360kg, speed is not the only card up the One:1’s silver sleeves. In this latest instalment from drive on the One:1 – the first of which you can find HERE – Christian von Koenigsegg walks us through the fundamentals of the rear wing. Turns out that the One:1 is much more than a 5.1-litre twin-turbocharged V8 rocket ship. It’s actually maddeningly complicated.
Take a step inside the Koenigsegg One:1 with its namesake and Drive to find out for yourself.
