Koenigsegg is celebrating 20 years of making the world’s fastest cars with the introduction of The Agera One:1. The Swedish supercar maker is calling their latest beast “The worlds first Megacar.”
Powered by a twin-turbo, 5.0-liter V8, The Agera One:1 will produce a tire-scorching 1,341 hp and 1,011 lb-ft of torque. According to a press release, Koenigsegg claims the Agera One:1 has a simulated top speed of 273 miles per hour, which would best the current Guinness World Record holder for fastest production car, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, by 19 mph. But according to autoblog, only 6 cars will be built so it will never qualify as a production car, which requires at least 30 units to be made.

Reasons the McLaren P1 is awesome number 1: it has a centrally mounted exhaust which is spitting flames more often than not. That’s pretty cool!
The P1’s so-called IPAS hybrid powertrain (i.e. Instant Power Assist System which is McLaren-talk for the hybrid setup used on Formula One cars), can boom out 903 hp and slings you from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.6 seconds.
