Koenigsegg planning hypercar with one horsepower per pound

If this seems crazy (and awesome), that's because it is. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, Koenigsegg is planning a car called the One:1 as in, one horsepower per pound. Head honcho Christian von Koenigsegg describes this new hypercar as a "money-is-no-object venture" for a dealer in China.

A one-to-one power-to-weight ratio certainly sounds ridiculous, but it's not all that far-fetched. "Other cars have achieved this but by measuring dry weight no oil, no water, no fuel," von Koenigsegg said in his interview with Bloomberg. The plan for the One:1 is to create a 1,400-horsepower car that weighs 1,400 pounds, taking into account fluids and even the driver.

Of course, a car of this caliber will have blistering performance. Computer simulations have reportedly projected a top speed of 279 miles per hour, and according to von Koenigsegg, the One:1 will be the quickest car from 0-124 mph, 0-186 mph and 0-248 mph. And you thought the recently unveiled Agera S Hundra (pictured) was bonkers.

A prototype of the One:1 is expected to be ready by the end of this year, and when the car enters production, only six examples will reportedly be produced. Naturally, all six have already been spoken for, and AutoWeek states that backup buyers have even been chosen in case those first six customers flake out. Dream on, folks.

At least a millionaire, with good spending habits.

Anybody know who the current owner of the best ratio of weight to power is? 458 Italia? S2000? Someone else?

I think you got it confused with (NA) horsepower per liter. It was was the S2000, now its the 458.

I don't know which car has the best power to weight ratio, but I'd imagine its either going to be an Ariel Atom, Caterham or Ultima GTR or something like that.
