Listen to the Koenigsegg One: 1 Fire Up and Smile

If the sound of this 1,340-hp V8 doesn't make you smile, nothing will.

We had the pleasure of seeing it up close in Geneva, but this short video courtesy of Exotics in Denmark, has given us the first chance to hear the Koenigsegg One: 1 firing up. Only six of these limited edition Mega cars will be built, and a customer in Denmark appears to have already taken stock of one of them. The 1,340-hp 5.0-liter V8 creates a sweet sound, delivered via a single center-mounted titanium exhaust made by a 3D printer.

Christian von Keonigsegg claims the One: 1, so-called because of its perfectly balanced power-to-weight ratio, can hit a theoretical top speed of 280 mph. The next time we see a video of this spectacular car, let's hope its at least trying to reach that speed.
