With its eyes set on becoming the world’s fastest car, the Koenigsegg Agera One:1 has made an appearance at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

If you’re wondering how this special Agera model got its unique name of One:1, it refers to the fact that it features 1,340 hp while weighing 1,340 kgs. Simply put, it pushes out one hp for every kg it weighs, thanks to its 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. Want to put that into perspective? The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport weighs in at 1,888 kgs with 1,184 hp. In other words, the Koenigsegg Agera One:1 is more powerful and lighter, meaning it’ll challenge the Veyron Super Sport’s records if all goes well.

Complementing the 1,340 hp is 740 lb-ft of torque that’s available from 3,000 to 7,500 rpm. From bumper to bumper, the supercar has been designed to be as light as powerful, with even the turbo housing made from titanium and 3D printed in-house at Koenigsegg. Naturally the chassis is constructed from carbon fiber in order to hit those impressive weight figures. While Koenigsegg is remaining mum on actual acceleration numbers, the Swedish automaker is likely not willing to jump the gun and waiting to actually set some definitive records. It does however believe that the Agera One:1 will go faster than 273 mph in order to set the speed record.

The Koenigsegg Agera One:1 will be limited to just four units and they’re all already spoken for.
