Leaked renderings of Koenigsegg One:1 reveal carbon fiber, well, everything – and 1,400hp and 1,400kg to boot?

Koenigsegg One:1 render

Last November we brought you the single image from a sales brochure of what was then believed to be the latest Bugatti-beating Koenigsegg, called the One:1.

Now we have what are widely considered the latest leaks of the already infamous Swedish hypercar. In the low-res discussion board sourced renders, we can see a few more details of the One:1, including its carbon fiber wheels.

The One:1 isn’t as silly a name as you think it is. It actually stands for the car’s ideal power-to-weight ratio, with one horsepower for each kilogram in its curb weight.

Engine details are not yet known but Autocar wagers the One:1 will feature a even more precisely tuned version of the Koenigsegg Agera’s twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8. In the Agera, that engine makes 947 horsepower, good for 0-62mph in 3.0 seconds. For the One:1, it’s expected to produce upwards of 1400 horsepower and a sub three-second 0-60 time.

Although power will be up and weight will be down, the Swedes will still offer some creature comforts in the One:1, including climate control, a hydraulic lift system so the body doesn’t collide with speed bumps, carbon-ceramic brakes, electrically locking rear differential, and a single-clutch seven-speed transmission with paddle shifters.

The One:1 is expected to run around $2-million. But don’t worry; you won’t even get a chance to buy one because all five examples are destined for China. Why? We haven’t a clue.
