STOCKHOLM, Sweden - The Koenigsegg One:1 Megacar, says the automaker is the world's first megacar in production. It's capable of 1014kW and rocketing to 300km/h in 17.95 secs.

The One:1 produces one megawatt of power, and the automaker claims it is the world's first series produced megacar. The Swedish automaker has produced a car with the 'dream equation' with kW-to-kilogram curb weight ratio of an astonishing 1:1. (Hence the name.)

Christian von Koenigsegg, CEO and founder of Koenigsegg automotive, said: "When we design a new car here at Koenigsegg, we don't make any compromises."

Koenigsegg has built six production units, and one test prototype. The prototype has already been in action in Suzuka (Japan), Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) and Ängelholm (Sweden).

The One:1 set a new track record for a road legal production vehicle at Spa with a 2min33.26 lap in July 2015.
