Koenigsegg has been churning out episodes of its Inside Koenigsegg web series at around the same pace as the speed of its subject, the One:1 megacar. Now on its third episode, Inside Koenigsegg now takes us on an in-depth look at the One:1’s active rear wing.

Christian Von Koenigsegg claims that the One:1’s rear wing is the world’s first top-mounted active rear wing, a distinction the company decided to go with because it creates the kind of downforce that can be of good use to the high-speed stability of the One:1.

Another unique characteristic of this top-mounted active rear wing is its weight. According to Koenigsegg, the whole carbon-fiber component only weighs 10 kg, one-third the weight of similar contraptions from Koenigsegg’s competitors.

That’s pretty impressive, more so knowing how much it helps the supercar achieve its ungodly performance capabilities. It makes us wonder, really, how far more advanced the One:1 really is when you line it up against its rivals.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
