I don't think that's the case here, it's just not some extra carbon fibre and extra details in the One:1. To my knowledge it's been under development for over 2 years, alot of work has been put into it. All that development cost has to be spread out on 6 cars, wich is why even though the extreme pricetag will mean that Koenigsegg are making a loss on each car.

The One:1 project is probally a very good investment for Koenigsegg anyway, alot of tech from this + that all the hype around it will help selling more cars.

In this exact case I would agree and say that the R&D costs do play a factor in price, but as a whole on special editions from Mclaren, Ferrari, Lamborgihni, Pagani etc it is a lot of times just premiums for having a rarer example

This car is nuts. This is thing literally puts everything out there to shame by a huge margin..
I can't wait for some tests to really see how fast this thing is.

Since they are building 6 cars + 1 test car I would assume this might be the test car?

It's funny how it all worked out, with the LaFerrari/P1/918/Veneno all coming out last year. People (I sheepishly admit even myself a bit) wondered how Koenigsegg could keep up, with all the tech those cars brought (except maybe the Veneno). All along Christian was doing this thing. We heard rumors of it, but nothing like this.

The One:1 will have the show all to itself. What a way to make the biggest splash.

Yes, this is the development car. 6 more will be built.

I can't wait to see the other paint schemes.

On an somewhat unrelated note, anyone else find it hilarious that almost-owner of #92 BC said the SuperVeyron was real and that the One:1 was just a rumour...and now its the complete opposite

Still dont get how this could street legal but damn thats an awesome car!! If the downforce is as affective as they say, i dont see any competition what so ever to this car.. Maybe on a very very tight track where i guess all power will be negative.. Honestly i think we have our next Top Gear track champion here!! And i will smoke everything on the green hell.. 6:20 - 6:30??
