In a sea of luxury and exotics that is typical at the Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg arguably stole the show this year with its Agera One:1.

Cranking out 1,340 hp while weighing only 1,340 kgs, the Agera One:1 gets its name from its impressive power-to-weight ratio. Thanks to a ton of lightweight carbon fiber and other materials, the Agera One:1 has its eyes set on becoming the world’s fastest car.
