Koenigsegg preparing a Nurburgring record attempt?

Swedish carmaker Koenigsegg has made no secret of its intentions to make an attempt on the outright production car lap record at the Nurburgring Norschleife with its insane One:1 megacar.

That ambition was thwarted last year when speed restrictions were imposed at the ‘Ring after a racing crash that left a spectator dead. Now the restrictions have been lifted, Koenigsegg is free to shoot for glory.

This video shows a One:1 – a car with 1340bhp to match its 1340kg weight – lapping the ‘Ring, seemingly not flat-out but still pretty damn quickly. It sounds bleedin’ awesome, too. Not to mention quite incredibly loud.

It isn’t clear if this is footage of a Koenigsegg factory driver getting some practice in, or an owner out for a bit of fun. Either way, it’s great footage and has us very excited about the prospect of the One:1 setting a sub-seven-minute lap.

Turn your speakers up loud and enjoy.
