This breathtaking creation is a Koenigsegg One:1, Sweden’s twin-turbocharged, 1,300bhp, rumoured 270mph, 1:1 bhp:kg ultra-rare hypercar. It’s the work of Pvdb, and it’s one of the greatest Technic supercars that we’ve ever posted.
Pvdb has replicated the Koenigsegg One:1’s technical specifications beautifully, including its amazing dihedral doors, complex suspension and V8 engine, but the real work of art is his working paddle-shift gearbox.
Pvdb has squeezed three ratios into his Technic paddle-shift, but even being four cogs short of the real One:1 it’s an accomplishment that has blown the collective minds of TLCB office. If we’re right about LEGO’s forthcoming 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS set also including a working paddle-shift gearbox it’ll be interesting to see how many ratios LEGO themselves have managed to engineer into their new flagship.
You can read further details of how Pvdb’s system works via the Eurobricks discussion forum here, where you can also see the dihedral doors in action and peruse an extensive gallery of images.
