Koenigsegg’s latest 0-186mph-0 record of 17.95 seconds is astonishing, especially considering that a McLaren P1 needs 16.5 seconds just to reach 186mph, and 4.5 seconds to brake to zero from just 124mph. Holy Batmobile,Christian!

Long before Batman started driving ridiculous tanks that can be driven through walls, Batmobiles were depicted as rocket-powered speed recorders that were armored but could also turn like a Lotus. It’s clear now that Batman needs to test drive a Koenigsegg.

Christian von Koenigsegg, our favorite bald guy has his own airfield in Sweden, where he likes to punch the laws of physics right in the face. He did that successfully with the Agera R back in 2011, but since the One:1 has been out for a while, it was time to see what’s what with that as well.

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, and you just went from zero to 186mph and back to zero. Put your organs back in order, everything will be fine.

We told you it was fast.
