Koenigsegg One:1 Spa onboard

Swedish 'megacar' stretches its legs at iconic Belgian circuit

Koenigsegg One:1 Spa onboard

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.
