So the Geneva Auto show has come and gone, and yes I waited till now to write about all the cool things that were introduced. I did this mainly because I wanted sometime to absorb as much information as I can about the things I wanted to write about.
Let's start this of with a car called ONE:1.
This is the Koenigsegg ONE:1
First of, it's called ONE:1 because the power to weight ratio of this car is ONE:1.
That means for every kilogram this car weights it equals the same number of horsepower.
And that number is 1,341.... Yes 1,341 horsepower. That power comes courtesy of a twin-turbo 5.0 Liter V8 which also produces 1,011 ft-lbs of torque.
These days it seems like a lot of companies small or large are in this horsepower numbers war. And personally I'm not a fan of it. I want something I can truly enjoy and 1,341HP is something I will never need nor will I ever have enough tarmac to use every horsepower this car has to offer. Plus I think this car looks terribly ugly. I didn't know how to say that any nicer, but yah this thing looks ugly as hell.
At this price point (gabillions) at least make it look sexy, you know like a Pagani.
Did you see the side view mirrors? Pagani Huayra anyone?
Now there will only be six of ONE:1 to be made and apparently all six cars have been spoken for. Sorry to disappoint you. But you won't be seeing one at your local walmart anytime soon.
