What's in a name? For Koenigsegg's latest creation, something totally awesome, that's what. The "One:1" designation refers to a one-to-one power-to-weight ratio – one horsepower per kilogram. And the magic number? One-thousand, three-hundred and forty-one. Hold on to your butts, indeed.

That insane power number comes courtesy of a twin-turbocharged, 5.0-liter V8 that, in addition to the 1,341 hp, puts out an equally pavement-warping 1,011 pound-feet of torque. Koenigsegg hasn't released a 0-60 time, but we imagine it's something like six milliseconds, and we're told the car can theoretically top out at near 273 miles per hour. You know, no big deal.

The One:1 can pull around 2Gs of cornering force on road-legal tires, and with active aero bits like a rear wing and independent, left and right front flaps, Koenigsegg says 1,345 pounds of downforce are available at 160 mph, to keep everything copacetic. Insanely copacetic, of course.

Want one? Too bad. Koenigsegg only plans to build six examples of the Agera One:1, and all of them have been spoken for. Oh well. Have a look at this insane car in the gallery above, live from Geneva.

Koenigsegg Celebrating 20 Years

The journey of Koenigsegg, since inception, is truly incredible. It all started on August 12th 1994 when a young man, age 22, set out to realize his childhood dream. A young man fuelled by passion, ingenuity and mind-bending will.

Christian von Koenigsegg had just made up his mind to live his dream and start his own car company. The odds were stacked against him. It was a now or never moment.

His idea was to create a sports car that he felt did not currently exist and one which he believed would be desired – two essential necessities for success, Christian felt.

The concept: A lightweight mid-engined car, with a detachable, stowable hardtop. A wrap-around screen for good visibility and aerodynamics. Short overhangs with two large intercooler intakes on the side of the car, behind the mass centre to aid high speed stability.

A car that looked and felt good with the top up, as well as in roadster guise, transformed in minutes with the hard top neatly tucked away inside the car. A car with a timeless efficient appearance that age like good wine.

This was a mid-engine car concept that did not exist at the time. The CC8S was born. Every Koenigsegg created since includes this simple but effective DNA and stay true to Christian's original vision.

It has been an amazing ride. From boyhood dream to a shining, all-conquering and powerful reality. It's awe-inspiring stuff that dreams are made of.

Five production models with as many Guinness production car records later - it is a fact, Koenigsegg has exploded on to the scene and is here to stay.

When Christian is asked what his greatest achievement is - he says without hesitation: -Living the dream!

Just imagine what the next 20 years will hold.

Time for the One:1

      utterly insane, and awesome. How it puts any of that power down in the first 4 gears is beyond me, however. If it were not traction limited, indeed its 0-60 would be -1second.

        I think we need Velcro instead of rubber now for this car especially to put all its power down!

      Love the car so much. It really is one of the most awesome-looking, lesser known hyper cars, or maybe the best kept secret?

      Yet another shining example of excess for the ultra-wealthy. How can anyone who reads this page actually care about this car one bit? Prepare the 300mph Bugatti!

        I am a huge environmentalist/animal activist/tree hugger. But that doesn't stop me from appreciating things such as this. Go back to your Prius you worm.

      Funny that my comments are so "popular" that the bench racing, momma's basement living Autoblog staff chooses to mock me with "super-duper-car". The stupid articles and terminology here show why car people should write about cars, not over educated dweebs. It's kinda of like gay men picking which women are "hot". It's no wonder the allegedly most beautiful people are all thespian looking women with no sex appeal.

      It's a gorgeous car, except those front and rear spoilers. I realize they are necessary for performance reasons, but they don't work for me. I'm canceling my order.

        they made only 6 of these, and they was sold to 6 owners in China before the Geneva.
