Jay Leno’s had his share of classics; supercars; hot rods; and custom motorcycles in his garage. See now Jay Leno and Mr Koenigsegg Take the Wheel on ‘One:1’
The reality TV show host recently invited the $3,000,000.00 mega car, plus the company’s founding CEO, to his garage of automotive dreams.
The ‘one of 1’ is fitted with an upgraded one million watt engine and weighs just 1,380 kilogrammes. It also features front air vents and a top-mounted air intake that significantly increase downforce and performance.
The designers worked directly with the Swedish Automaker’s owner from the video, Christian Von Koenigsegg, to surpass challenges and present solutions that maintain the aerodynamic and performance requirements.
Even the scissor that doors that Leno opens– Koenigsegg calls them dihedral synchro-helix actuation doors — are made from one piece of super light carbon fiber.

Jay takes it for a spin and then Mr. Koenigsegg does the same. Only seven were built, including the prototype, and only one will live in the United States.
Funny fact or not actually, it depends on of the reader’s point of view now there are only six left: one was destroyed at the Nürburgring a few months ago.
Technology is for all so see but not for all to buy as we can incredibly show here. Can you imagine the price of this amazing “car”? That should be another article itself.
