If some of you might recall, Koenigsegg was close to making an attempt to smash the records at the Nurburgring with their mighty One:1 Megacar. It may sounded too good to be true, and unfortunately it was as the plans of doing so were immediately put on hold with the Nurburgring management imposing speed limits at certain parts of the track.
But now with the speed limits lifted, Koenigsegg can finally have a shot in setting a whole new record around the famed Green Hell. The company posted on their website, saying that they will be at the Nurburgring in the near future, which will likely be generating rumours and speculations about lap times.
But unfortunately we should not get our hopes too high just yet as such plans will not be taking place anytime soon. As explained by Koenigsegg, “We won’t be doing a lap record in the immediate term, but we will be there and because people will see us there and expect all sorts of things, we thought we’d get out ahead of the car-spotters and tell you what we’re up to”.
Simply put, Koenigsegg will be at the Nurburgring for the next few months prepping up their One:1 with their regular factory test driver Robert Serwanski behind the wheel. However, Serwanski might just not be the one piloting the One:1 when the record attempt takes place. Koenigsegg even added that they are not promising if any attempts will be made this year.
“Will we gun for a record this year? Maybe. It depends on many, sometimes mundane factors such as track access/availability, the weather and other commitments that may pose a conflict in terms of timing.”
