A 270mph car could become the world’s most expensive with its £5 million price tag. Branded the first ‘megacar’, the Koenigsegg One:1 has an incredible ratio of 1bhp per kilogram – making it 20 times as powerful as a Ford Fiesta.
It can go from 0-62mph in 2.6 seconds, 0-186mph in 12 seconds and 0-248mph in around 20 seconds.
And it can get back to standstill in just 10 seconds, thanks to its state-of-the-art brakes.
It is estimated to be able to reach a staggering 273mph, though they haven’t been able to test it to that speed.
Only six were built – in addition to the prototype car, known as #00 – and they were sold before they were officially unveiled.
Supercar dealership Supervettura, based in Sunningdale, Berkshire, is selling #00 for an eye-watering £4.8m. This is the priciest car in history. When the Bugatti Veyron first went on the market, it was on sale for a mere £830k.
The One:1 is the globe’s faster car too – in terms of its accelerating to 200kph and for its 0-300-0 ability.
Speaking of the prototype now on sale, the dealer said: “We are delighted to offer this very special Koenigsegg One:1, the car that was used by the Koenigsegg factory to develop the extremely rare and extreme performance One:1 model – the world’s first megacar.
“This vehicle was used to debut the One:1 programme at the Geneva Motorshow in 2014 and it was the star of the show. No small feat for a small manufacturer competing with the most powerful names with the largest budgets in the industry.”
