The world’s fastest production car on (Guiness) record – the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – produces 1,183 horsepower and weighs more than 4,000 pounds.

Now take the Bugatti, crank up the horsepower, lower its weight and you have the all-new Koenigsegg One:1.

The Swedish manufacturer calls its newest invention the world’s first production ‘megacar’ because of its 1,000-kilowatt power rating, which converts to approximately 1,340 horsepower. Equally impressive is that the Koenigsegg machine carries a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio – hence the ‘One:1′ branding – meaning the car weighs in at just 1,340 kilograms (2,954 pounds).
