It’s not real racing between two real hypercars, but it is pretty revealing to see how dominant the One:1 is

The Koenigsegg One:1 and the Bugatti Chiron are two of the fastest and most powerful cars in the world. It’s a shame that we haven’t seen these two hypercars share a drag strip together, but for those who are wondering which of these two exotics is faster than the other, wonder no more. YouTube user Ericship111 lined them up together on Forza 7 for an old-fashioned drag race, and the result may surprise you. The Swedish hypercar thoroughly dismantled its French rival, leaving it in its dust without even batting an eyelash.

Ok, so it’s not really a real race between a real Koenigsegg One:1 and a real Bugatti Chiron so we’ll take the result with a grain of salt. That said, it is pretty remarkable to see how the Koenigsegg One:1 managed to thoroughly dismantle the Bugatti Chiron like it was merely swatting an annoying fly. It’s not like the Chiron is a cupcake; it has 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque on tap, for Pete’s sake! It’s even capable of sprinting from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of 260 mph.

But even those eye-popping power and performance numbers were no match for a car that spits 1,360 horsepower and 1,011 pound-feet of torque of its own. The One:1 is also 1,300 pounds lighter than the Chiron so if you take into account its massive power-to-weight ratio of 1:1 — that’s why it’s called One:1 — it becomes more believable to imagine the Koenigsegg hypercar as the faster of the two. Besides, the One:1 is capable of hitting 248 mph in just 20 seconds, a staggering time for a vehicle with four wheels on it.

Unfortunately, we really shouldn’t take too much out of this Forza 7 showdown. It’s a video game simulation of a race that relies on a lot of things you can’t do using video game controllers. So while it is interesting to see the One:1 leave the Chiron to eat its dust, it’s unlikely that we’re going to see the same result when someone pits an actual One:1 with an actual Chiron.

We haven’t seen it come to life yet, so we’ll reserve our judgment on which of these prized exotics is the faster of the two. I’d pay good money to see that race happen. Hopefully, somebody’s able to do it sooner than later. A lot of bragging rights will definitely be at stake.
