Acceleration-Braking Record Broken Apart By Koenigsegg One:1


Koenigsegg’s One:1 hypercar is just downright ludicrous. Named for its power-to-weight ratio—1340 hp moving an equal number of kilograms, just under 3000 lbs—this thing was built to blow minds.


We’ve seen a good handful of videos of the One:1 in action, blasting 220 mph at a supercar airstrip meetup, thundering around Suzuka Circuit, and even racing that other Swedish juggernaut of torque, the Volvo FH semi truck.

But Koenigsegg wants to tear apart the record book with the One:1. It’s aimed the hypercar’s crosshairs at the Nurburgring production-car lap record. And today, the Swedish carmaker released a video it claims shows a new world record for the 0-300km/h-0 sprint.

Koenigsegg describes this video as a practice run, filmed at the company’s Angelholm, Sweden test track.

You’ll note that Serwanski runs past 300 km/h on this acceleration run—since 200 mph converts to 321.9 km/h, it seems the team wanted to get measurements for both standard and metric records. And according to Koenigsegg’s own data, the run netted a 0-300 km/h-0 record of 17.95 seconds.

That beats Koenigsegg’s old record, set by the Agera R, by 3.24 seconds. And while this video was only taken during a practice session, and thus doesn’t count as an official World Record, it gives a good hint at what the One:1 will do in a sanctioned record attempt.

The Agera R, we should point out, is no slouch, having set a whole bunch of Guinness World Records for acceleration itself. But the One:1 operates on an entirely different level.
