The BHP Project Reveals One-and-Only RHD Koenisegg One: 1, Will Wear Blue Tinted Carbon

1,000 hours will be spent painting the 1,340-hp hypercar.

Koenigsegg will build just six units of the One:1 hypercar unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. One of these will be heading to the UK, and The BHP Project is expected to take delivery of it by early next year. The supercar is being supplied via Koenigsegg’s main dealer in the UK, SuperVettura, and these latest images reveal a color has finally been decided on.

It took the Swedish carmaker 600 hours to build the monocoque, made from carbon fiber and aluminum honeycomb, but around 1,000 hours will be spent on painting the 1,340-hp hypercar in a combination of clear and blue-tinted carbon with triple-layered pearlescent white stripes. Between the six layers of clear coat, Koenigsegg will wet sand and polish the car, a hugely labor intensive undertaking but one that is well worth the effort.
