The Hennessey Venom GT just hit 270 MPH on a runway. The Koenigsegg One:1 thinks that's cute. And that's because it should be able to hit 280 MPH. Oh, and it can go around corners like mad. Welcome to the new king. This is our behind the scenes look at the world's new mega car.

2. Full Disclosure:

Part of the invitation to visit Koenigsegg's factory included witnessing the final part of the build process of the One:1, their newest challenger to be the fastest car in the world. Christian gave us full access to the car and his staff to learn all about the creation of this beast. And none of this would be possible without GF Williams, who stayed an extra two days at the factory to get more photos of the car as the Koenigsegg team hustled to get it out the door to the Geneva show. The man is a photo genius.)

Koenigsegg's current offerings, the Agera R and Agera S, are not what you'd call tame, boring, cars. They make upwards of 1,000 horsepower and are light weight. In other words, they are a handful. But a few years ago, Christian heard rumors of what was coming from Porsche, Ferrari, and McLaren. He wanted to be prepared with something that could take them on.
