Koenigsegg One:1 Spa onboard

Koenigsegg One:1 Spa onboard

Swedish 'megacar' stretches its legs at iconic Belgian circuit

Bugatti Veyrons are for wimps. McLaren P1? LaFerrari? Yeh, they're alright, but if you really want kudos at your next track day, you need a Koenigsegg One:1.

There's been plenty written about the world's first 'Megacar', Koenigsegg's word for its ultimate weapon, but we haven't seen it in action - until now.

The above video shows Koenigsegg test driver Robert Serwanksi - now there's a pretty good job - at full speed around the epic Spa-Francorchamps track in Belgium.

Unsurprisingly, even detuned from 1000kW to 'just' 925kW, traction is a severe issue, but its speed down Spa's long straights is just staggering, the speedo needle looking more like a tachometer.

If you can't get enough One:1 action, Koenigsegg also recently took the car to Suzuka, with Serwanski showing he's quite a dab hand at drifting, too, around the Japanese circuit's famous hairpin.
