You are the test driver for Koenigsegg, which has to be the coolest job of the all and you are given the opportunity to test the Koenigsegg One:1 at the worlds greatest race circuit, Japan’s Suzuka race track.
Koenigsegg call the One:1 the “worlds first mega car” and for once the marketing isn’t too far removed from the truth. The Koenigsegg One:1 is famous for having a power to weight ratio of 1:1.
That roughly translates into 1341bhp and 1371Nm meters of torque sourced from a twin turbo, 5.0-litre V8. Cost? Around £2m GBP.
So this lucky chap on the right gets a passenger ride, however we reckon Robert Serwanski, the test driver, takes it easy on the opening lap and slightly less easy on the second lap.
How can we tell? Its easy, Serwanski never quite uses full revs on either lap and short shifts through the gears.
Still the One:1 is a handfull as one or two side ways moments prove, but you get an impression of what the One:1 is all about.
But the real question is why build a machine so extreme and not drive too or as near to the limit?
