Spotted driving around Monaco.
The first ever Koenigsegg One:1 built, chassis number #106, has been spotted in Monaco with its new owner, lady racer Carina Lima, at the wheel.
Chassis #106 was used as the factory test and development car, finalizing the spec of the six production cars. It’s powered by a 5.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 producing 1360 horsepower to go with its 1360 kilogram (2998 pounds) weight, making it the first car ever put into production with a one-to-one power-to-weight ratio.
It’s officially the fastest production car in the world over the 0 to 186 miles-per-hour sprint, with a time 11.9 seconds, which was set in chassis #106. It also holds production car lap records at the Spa and Suzuka race circuits. An attempt on the Nurburgring Nordschleife lap record has been postponed after the car being used crashed with brake failure.
It’s not often factory prototypes are released for sale, but chassis #106 last year passed to British dealer Super Vettura, the UK’s only Koenigsegg agent. The price? $6 million. It seems likely Carina Lima acquired it through Super Vettura though, curiously, it is still listed on their website.
Former model Carina races in the Cup class of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe series with Imperiale Racing, sharing a car with Pagani test driver Andrea Palma.
