Koenigsegg Agera One:1 Like a Rocketship
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.”
