two weeks Ago, we announced the removal of speed limits in the Nürburgring. This fact gave rise to many brands consider to return to the demanding route of the ‘Green Hell’ to test their sports and, why not, beat the lap record. That will be the main objective of the Koenigsegg One:1, as stated in a press release, the small Swedish manufacturer.
we must recognize that One:1 is a vehicle very appropriate for the challenge. Already broke the lap record at Spa Francorchamps and several in the 0-300-0 km/h, but now it will be more complex. And is that the swedes are looking for a pilot able to accomplish this feat. The usual tester of the brand, Robert Serwanski, you do not have a lot of experience in Nordschleife and therefore are looking for someone with a deep knowledge of the circuit.
it Is noteworthy that the attempt to break the record will not be a short-term. You need a preparation process that will last months because you will only be able to test the vehicle with the closed circuit for them alone one or two days per month. From the brand claim that they want to start tuning in a little so that there is likely to be at maximum level and give it a try before the end of the year.
is The time to overcome? The 6 minutes and 57 seconds of the Porsche 918 Spyder. The Koenigsegg One:1 has no lack of arguments, recall that its name comes from the weight-to-power of 1 HP for every kg Of its V8 5.0-liter manages to develop 1.360 CV of power and its final weight is only 1.360 kg Will be the record or stay in the attempt? We will be with the sunset view at the Nürburgring to prove it.
