Swedish automaker Koenigsegg is celebrating its 20th birthday this year. For the occasion, the company has unveiled the One:1, the hypercar it says will be "world's first megacar". It is the first production car that offers a 1:1 power to weight ratio — it weighs 1340kg and produces 1322bhp (1340 metric horsepower). That's even more than the 1184bhp Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – the world's fastest production car according to Guinness World Records.

The new model from the Swedish supercar firm is derived from the Agera R and its 1100bhp twin-turbocharged 5.0-litre V8 engine, but with pretty big updates making it basically an all-new car.


  • It pulls 2G while cornering on road legal tyres
  • It produces 610kg of downforce at 160mph at speeds in excess of 160mph. (the McLaren P1 produces 600kg of downforce)
  • A lightweight carbonfibre chassis (20% lighter than the Agera R's)
  • Active aerodynamics, active ride height
  • Aero Track Mode systems to be predicted and primed by 3G and GPS connectivity

The new Agera One:1 features 3D-printed variable turbo housings for improved response and low-end torque. The company also 3D printed titanium exhaust end piece that saves 14 ounces (400 grams / 0.88 pounds) of weight. Another weight saving measure includes a 20-percent lighter carbon fiber chassis made with new high modulus fibers.

According to Jalopnik, the exhaust tip is the largest piece of 3D printed titanium every built. And it takes three whole days to produce. That would be amazingly inefficient for a mass produced car, but it not only saves weight, but also the cost for producing only six pieces of such complex parts. In addition 3D printing also helps them achieve the shape they wanted and lets them control their workflow.

Koenigsegg says that it has a simulated top speed of around 440 kilometers per hour (273 miles per hour), which would make it the world's fastest production vehicle.

The hypercar is set to be seen for the first time at next week's Geneva motor show.

largest piece of titanium ever built? what bullshit. China can print the whole damn car in one piece, in titanium, as said http://www.3ders.org/articles/20130118-3-meter-long-titanium-airplane-part-3d-printed-in-one-piece.html

I could have sworn that some big Chinese fighter frame part was 3D printed titanium. The exhaust tip seems small for "biggest 3D printed titanium part".
