We told you about the bonkers Koenigsegg Agera One:1 hypercar back in October. Its name gives away its special power: a 1:1 horsepower-to-kilogram ratio. In other words, every single one of its 1,400 horsepower will have only 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) to move. Today, the first rendering of what the Agera One:1 will look like – complete with a rear wing of otherworldly size – appeared in a feature about the automaker published by The Wall Street Journal.

Some other details seem to have changed since reports surfaced about the car in October. For one, the WSJ claims the car's weight will be 1,340 kilograms, which suggests that power might be lower than the 1,400 figure earlier reported if the 1:1 ratios hold true. WSJ also reports that Koenigsegg will produce 100 copies of the Agera One:1, a much higher number than the original estimate of six.

All will be clear come March 4, though, when the car is officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. A sneak preview will also reportedly happen on February 26, which we'll do our best to crash to get you more details sooner.

And because we know you're wondering, the latest Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse has one unit of horsepower for every 1.66 kilograms of weight.

      That wing is nuts. It looks like it's attached to the frame and not the hatch like it normally is. It'll sure need it. I l've always loved Koenigsegg.

      What use would all that power be without AWD or tires that can peel off asphalt?

      1,340 kilograms + 60 Kg driver will be 1:1

      We need more affordable (price) and cheap (gas and insurance) family saloons and coupes. Not these costly engineering excercises that only few can afford. Plus who wants this when theres a superb Veyron SS or even McLaren P1 for that matter.

        Well the more the merrier but honestly we have plenty of nice affordable cars. And it's funny that you compare the P1 and veyron to this because this will probably smoke both of those cars.

        I'm sure there are people more talented and intelligent than you, but yet your parents still chose to procreate. It's not about necessity any more than the Mona Lisa was. Art is a part of human culture spanning millennia.

        You do realize you are on Autoblog, right? I think you were looking for Consumer Reports.

        The development of these cars pioneer research on new technologies, and rich people pay for it. Every time you get in your car with side airbags, thank rich people. When you use your back up camera, thank rich people. They paid for it first, dearly, and slowly but surely it was able to trickle down and become affordable. When Carbon fiber makes it to the mass market you can thank these supercar companies for pioneering the effort. Now get out of here hippie! Go weave a hemp sweater or something.

      The BMW HP4 has almost 200 hp and weighs just over 200kg so it's basically 1:1. And it's a lot less money.

        Except, that's if you can somehow get the bike to ride itself. While the weight of a driver (even plus passenger and some luggage) isn't very significant to a car's weight, a rider is 1/4 to 1/2 the weight of the bike, which is huge. Of course, even if a bike weighed 300kg with its rider, it wouldn't be insanely expensive to make 300hp on a bike (you'd have to be suicidal though), turbocharged Hayabusas have been around for years.

      It would be interesting to see this baby up against a P1. In terms of what's currently on the market, the P1 might be the only other car on earth that could beat it, although details are relatively slim on The Ferrari so maybe it would be a contender as well.

        This car and the Venom GT both would pull train lengths on a p1. That would be like racing a brz against a new z06.

      "Ultra, Super Hypercar" <-- Seriously autoblog? Why do you mock me? I made that exact phrase up as a joke to poke fun at all of you sheep calling anything with a motor and two wheels a "supercar". Either you read the comments and you ripped me off, or y'all really are that stupid. Wow. This is seriously like a scene out of the Sarcastaball episode from South Park.

      That massive wing concerns me. Surely this can't just be rwd right? Right?! Otherwise this will be a very loud, expensive (though still pretty fast) smoke machine.

        All Koenigseggs are RWD. The Agera R already makes 1140 hp. They're definitely a handful, but if you know how to drive, then AWD only increases the 0-100 time, while also increasing the weight.

      Very cool! I look forward to learning more about this model. I was fortunate to see some of their cars feature in the new New for Speed movie last night - http://apexrally.blogspot.com/2014/02/need-for-speed-screening-in-seattle.html . Cheers.
