Koenigsegg Agera One:1 Like a Rocketship

25 MAR 2014

Stand in awe people, because the future is now! Well, that’s at least true in the automotive world with the release of Swedish automaker Koenigsegg’s new revolutionary, space-age megacar. Dubbed the Agera One:1 the car is turning heads not only for its incredibly futuristic and spaceship-like design – something straight out of a science fiction movie – but also for its insane power under the hood. The Agera One:1 is the world’s first “megacar,” meaning it delivers a startling megawatt of power using its state-of-the art 5 liter V8 engine. This results in around a 440 km/h top speed, which is both mesmerizing and a bit terrifying! Though the car won’t be made available outside of the six the company is producing that have already been pre-sold, the impact of this revolutionary vehicle will be felt throughout the industry. Check out this great blog post by Automotive Training Centre for more information on this beast.

“The space-age megacar is powered by twin-turbocharged, 5.0-liter V8 with a seven-speed dual-clutch manual transmission. It’s said to produce a stunning 2 Gs of cornering capability when using road-legal tires, this means that the car is much more suited as a track car than just for garnering massive speeds. The car sends telemetry data from the car’s chassis to an iPhone app using a 3G signal, and can even predict the road ahead using a high-tech GPS. Your auto technician would lose his mind being able to get a good look under the hood of this crazy car.”
