Christian von Koenigsegg has revealed that his Swedish hypercar firm is considering building a track-only vehicle in a similar vein to the McLaren P1 GTR, Ferrari FXX K and Aston Martin Vulcan.
During an Ask Me Anything forum on the company’s website, Koenigsegg said he’s interested in creating a bespoke new car for the track that wouldn’t be based around the existing One:1 megacar. Consequently, a possible Koenigsegg track car would be built from the ground-up and completely bespoke from other models the company produces.
If such a car comes to fruition, it seems logical that it would have to outperform the road-legal Koenigsegg One:1 on a circuit which wouldn’t be an easy feat. After all, the One:1 has set unofficial production car lap records around Suzuka and Spa Francorchamps. It could soon also set a new record at the Nurburgring Nordschleife.
Making the One:1 so fast is its twin-turbocharged V8 engine which delivers 1341 hp and 1371 Nm of torque. When combined with an overall weight of just 1341 kg, the One:1 features a perfect 1 hp to 1 kg power to weight ratio.
Anything faster than the One:1 from Koenigsegg has us interested!
