Unleashing the Swedish beast in Japan.
The Koenigsegg One:1 is one of those rare hypercars that strikes that magic one-kg-to-one-horsepower power-to-weight ratio. Its performance is nothing short of breathtaking and Koenigsegg took one to the Suzuka Circuit in Japan to let it fly around the track.
With factory driver, Robert Serwanski behind the wheel for three out of the four lap sessions during the half-an-hour time slot, Koenigsegg showed a bit of what their hypercar could do. Being that this was Sweranski’s first time at Suzuka, this wasn’t an all-out attempt to get the fastest lap possible being that there are so many different nuances and changes that still needed to be learned after his 20 laps.
The Koenigsegg One:1 was running on the standard setup with mild modifications made to the aerodynamics, factory tires, and regular fuel – not E85.
According to Koenigsegg, the best time was 2:17.57, better than the Nissan GT-R’s time at 2:18.36. That’s pretty impressive for a car that’s not being pushed to its limits. At 180 km/h, the car also was able to achieve 1.7 G of lateral acceleration according to the data logger.
