The Koenigsegg One:1 Supercar is Frightfully Fast Yet Unbelievably Light

Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg has revealed its latest space-age vehicle, the Koenigsegg One:1.

The Koenigsegg One:1 is an ultra-lightweight, hyper-powered beast with a speed of 273 mph, making it a contender for the title of world's fastest car.

The car's peculiar model name is devised from the ratio between its speed (in horsepower) and its weight (in kilograms), 1:1. It's a combination of high speed and low weight that was previously thought impossible, and makes the Koenigsegg One:1 a vehicle truly ahead of its time.

The Koenigsegg team used advanced carbon fiber materials usually seen only in Formula 1 cars to be able to create a production vehicle that could hit sonic speeds in a feather-light package.

But if you're thinking of getting your hands on one of these sleek supercars, don't even bother -- Koenigsegg only plans to build six specimens, all of which have already been claimed.
