A truly epic experience, onboard the Koenigsegg One:1 megacar at Spa-Francorchamps with former F1-driver, Adrian Sutil at the wheel.
The One:1 is a limited model, with just a total of 7 cars built including this car – the factory pre-production unit, that reaches the dizzying heights of 1Mw of power, 1360hp and with a weight of just 1360kg – the magic 1 to 1 ratio.
With thanks to PACE, the German Koenigsegg dealer, I attended Modena Trackdays with them at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium to attend this opportunity, and it is not one I’ll quickly forget!
Adrian Sutil drove for Sauber in the 2014 Formula 1 World Championship and is currently reserve driver for Williams during 2015 and has himself recently acquired a Koenigsegg CCX Edition hence visited the event to drive for himself. While present it was too good an opportunity to pass up, hence I jump on board armed with my cameras to be shown a car of mega proportions and experience how much beyond anything else it is.
As we complete a number of laps, the rate with which normal supercars like the Ferrari 458 Speciale and Porsche 911 GT3 RS are dispatched is mind-boggling. The experience for me with a driver of such calibre at the wheel also revealed a new smoothness to moving at speed that is not usually felt.
This video is the first that I have posted on the Shmee150 channel, shot entirely in 4K quality using a Sony AX33 Handycam and Sony X1000V Actioncam.
Thanks for watching, Tim
