  1. Koenigsegg Crash They say you cannot make an omelette without breaking some eggs. Well it turns out you cannot break the Nurburgring lap record without breaking some Koenigseggs! (ba dum tss) Puns aside, this one One:1 that had been running laps in preparation for an attempt to take away the production lap record from the Porsche 918 Spyder has had a massive crash, after it appears to have lost control or something has gone badly wrong, resulting in a long stretch of rubber burned into the tarmac at the Adenauer Forst area of the track, continuing onto the grass and crashing through the armco barriers. Strangely the tyre tracks seem to indicate that the car locked-up despite having ABS. Thankfully even with the damage that can be seen and the car briefly catching fire, the occupants, from initial reports, escaped relatively unharmed from the afternoon incident. Koenigsegg Automotive AB can confirm reports online that a Koenigsegg One:1 was involved in a crash during testing as part of Industry Pool at the Nurburgring on Monday, 18 July. The driver was taken to hospital as per standard procedures in such situations and was released the same afternoon. Koenigsegg has participated in Industry Pool testing for a week in each of the last two months, working primarily on vehicle setups both for ongoing vehicle development and for an attempt at a Nurburgring lap record at some time in the future. Being that there is only seven One:1's in existence and that this car (#107) appears to be a customer car according to GT Spirit, it is fair to say that Koenigsegg will want to get this full carbon fiber bodied car back to their HQ and set about returning it to mint condition. (wonder who pays for that?) UPDATE: #107 was bought back from the original German private owner by Koenigsegg back in 2015. There doesn't appear to be any footage of the event itself, however YouTube channel EMS Nordschleife TV has a video showing the aftermath and of the car being recovered. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZWEBAHREa8 Packing an absurd 1340bhp, a 0-60 mph time of 2.8 seconds and a theoretical top speed of 280 mph, the One:1 is indeed a monster. For more images from the scene check out the report by GT Spirit.
