The Koenigsegg Agera One:1 is the world's fastest car, theoretically capable of topping 280 mph. Quick refresher: it weighs 1340 kg, and puts out 1340 hp, hence the "One:1" name. It has advanced active aerodynamics to keep it firmly attached to the road and pretty much every square millimeter of the car has been designed with the singular aim of making it the best driver's car on earth. It takes so long to make that until recently there was only one in existence, and no one outside the company had driven one...until now.
Both of the One:1s in the world are at the Goodwood Festival of Speed right now, and this guy was lucky enough to be the first non-employee to drive one. Just...give it a watch, and notice how even the empty space in the car vibrates with the sheer energy of the car. It's special.
Aaron Miller is the Rides editor for Supercompressor. He'd like to take this opportunity to let the good people at Koenigsegg know that he's a very careful driver who has never once hit anything on a race track.
