For the latest episode of Inside Koenigsegg 2, the crew at Drive take an in-depth look at the most vital component of the brand new Koenigsegg One:1; it’s beating heart, the massive twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 engine delivering one megawatt of power. In lamens terms, that translates to 1360 hp! This follows on from the last episode looking at the final preparations for the car before its Geneva debut!
As with all episodes of Inside Koenigsegg and now Inside Koenigsegg 2, this clip features the company’s founder Christian von Koenigsegg talking about this extremely capable and highly advanced engine. While the engine is based on the powertrain from the Agera R, Koenigsegg has upgraded a plethora of components in the engine ranging from the camshafts to the fuel injectors.
Along with the 1360 hp output, the Koenigsegg One:1 delivers 1,371 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. Total weight is just 1,360 kg which is based on the complete car ready to drive with 50% fuel, 100% fluids and without the driver taken into account. This is a total weight saving of just over 70 kg on the Agera R. As a result, the Koenigsegg One:1 is said to achieve a perfect 1 horsepower to 1 kilogram power to weight ratio.
