Koenigsegg One:1 officially teased, leaks point to specs which will leave the Bugatti Veyron in the dust

Back in 2010, when Bugatti Veyron Super Sport set the record for being the fastest production car on earth, there was a feeling that the record is here to stay and might not be broken in a hurry, but fast forward to 2014 and we already have a contender that’s ready to dethrone the king. Following the recent official confirmation that the Koenigsegg One:1 is set to debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show 2014, the Swedish automaker has released the first teaser of its uber-cool, limited edition hypercar. The name of the Koenigsegg might sound odd, but the hypercar gets its name from the fact that it will produce one horsepower for every kilogram of weight. As per reports, the One:1 will tip the scales at 1,340 kilograms (2,954 pounds), which means it’ll have 1340hp to its disposal.

The newest offering by Koenigsegg is based on the Agera line of hypercars, but it has received numerous upgrades including the massive rear wing which virtually makes it an all new car from ground up. The huge rear wing not only gives the One:1 a distinct character but should give it enough downforce to blast past the current land speed record. It is believed that the Koenigsegg One:1 will have a top speed in excess of 450 km/h (279 mph). But that’s not the only record the hypercar has its eye on, Koenigsegg is confident the car will set new acceleration records for the 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph), 0-300 km/h (0-186 mph) and even 0-400 km/h (0-248 mph) sprints. Only six examples will be built with a price tag of $2 million each and if rumors are to be believed, all the units are already sold.
