Koenigsegg’s new 985kW One:1 has set a new performance benchmark for the 0-300-0km/h, with a record-beating time of just 17.95 seconds.
Recorded at the car-maker’s test track in Angelholm, Sweden, the new time slashes the current record by more than three seconds. It was set in 2011 by the Koenigsegg Agera.
Despite the new time, the Agera’s recorded and verified 21.19 sec time will temporarily remain the official world record until the new, 3.24 sec faster time is officially certified by Guinness.
