Jay Leno heads to The Quail during Monterey Car Week to chat with super car bigwigs like Christian von Koenigsegg and Rob Dickenson from Singer. He also takes a drive in a Mercedes-AMG GT S.
Christian von Koenigsegg creates some of the most powerful cars in the world, and his company always finds a way to extract just a little more power or a tad less weight from each new product. In a new video, he explains that drive and makes the work sound easy.
The new Koenigsegg Agera RS revealed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show may not be quite as extreme as the One:1 that came before, but promises to be even faster than the Agera R and Agera S... not to mention just about anything else on the road.

Few bragging rights are as hotly contested as Nürburgring lap times. Things have gotten so heated, in fact, that automakers have started slicing up the pie even finer: who makes the fastest sedan ever to lap the Norschleife, who the fastest front-driver, the fastest this and the fastest that. But the ultimate bragging rights still belong at the top of the leaderboard for the fastest street-legal production car. And now another exotic automaker is throwing its hat in the ring.

Automotive recalls are often deadly serious matters of safety, but sometimes one comes around that makes you scratch your head and wonder, 'Why even bother?'

The Koenigsegg Agera One:1 has opportunity to become the new king of the supercar world. Its twin-turbocharged, 5.0-liter V8 has been tuned up to 1,341 horsepower (1,360 PS) thanks in part to its proprietary, 3D-printed variable geometry turbos. Plus, with power equal to one megawatt, the company claims it has created the world's first megacar.
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.
