At 4 million, it is( or at the least, it was) the world’s most expensive vehicle, and there have only been seven ever created.
The good bulletin is that the One: 1 is repairable, and- despite holding some pretty significant damage to both the front and the rear- is likely to be rebuilt. And the move- who was taken to hospital as a precaution- was entirely unharmed.
The crash happened at Germany’sNurburgring circuit, while the car was being tested ahead of an attempt at the lap.

As far as vehicles start, this “hypercar” is admittedly pretty impressive. It can go from 0 mph to 62 mph in under three seconds, and has a careening top speed of 275 mph.
In public officials account, the makers of the car pronounced 😛 TAGEND
“A Koenigsegg is an extreme performance car and must be tested accordingly.This is an inherently dangerous undertaking that must be conducted progressively and methodically, acting point by point on all areas of our highly movable vehicles.
Our primary concern is always driver safety and any testing is organized and conducted accordingly.This incident can confirm just how difficult it is to drive at this stage on the world’s ultimate proving ground .
Obviously we are dismayed with this development but welcome the fact that our safety structures made as designed to protect our driver.”
