Koenigsegg One:1 Nearly Crashes At Spa-Francorchamps: Video
As rare an occasion as it will be to ever just see a Koenigsegg One:1 in person, getting the chance to watch one out on a racetrack will be a true unicorn sighting. That’s the case in this video, though, as the super-rare “megacar” lapped the Circuit of Spa-Francorchamps during Modena Trackdays 2015, but don’t think for a second that this One:1 was being babied around the track either.
Instead, the pre-production One:1 was being driven by former F1 driver Adrian Sutil, and the video starts with a little foreshadowing as the car slides through the Bus Stop chicane. On a subsequent lap, the $2.4 million Koenigsegg spins out in this turn, but the driver is able to power through the slide turning the near disaster into a smokey donut instead. It is very interesting listening to Sutil’s throttle input while the car is in mid slide. Rather than letting the car come to a rest and possibly be involved in a collision, the car’s momentum is somewhat maintained as he gets the car pointed in the right direction again.
In addition to the One:1, visitors were also treated to the sights and sounds of other Koenigsegg models, including the Agera X, CCX Edition, CCXR Edition and the CC8S. Want to see more of the One:1 at Spa? Then be sure to check this hot lap video shot by Schmee150, which while awesome, doesn’t show an in-car look at the spin.
