The Challenger of Switzerland

Faster One or F1 is the newest supercar of Weber Sportscars, Switzerland automotive manufacturer. The supercar was launched for the first time in 2007 as a prototype.

After five years of intensive testing and development have led to the production version you see here, with shorter intermediate gear ratios ‘for increased durability as well as drivability' and an all-new body designed by Richard Amiel.

Production was start in April 2013 with the first deliveries due before year-end. Price, as they say, on application. And the supercar maker claimed that their car is going to be the fastest 4WD sports car even capable of passing the Bugatti Veyron's speed.

This car was built by former engineers from the BMW and Sauber Petronas Formula-1 racing team. The framework of this car with a monocoque carbon-fiber with carbon material wrapping over its body. As a result, through the materials used, the F1 only has a total weight of 1,250 kg.

Drivetrains which are implanted under the hood is a twin-turbo 5.6-liter V10 engine with an output capacity of up to 1,200 hp and torque of 922 lb-ft. The resulting power flows to the wheels through a six-speed, semi-automatic sequential gearbox with paddle shift and is able to bring this cool car racing up to the speed of 400.73 kph, more outstanding is that it’s able to hit naught to 300 kph in just 16.2 seconds. Amazingly, F1 is able to sprint to the 100 kph from a standstill in just 2.5 seconds. cool!

Whether that will be enough to topple the Veyron from its throne as the world's fastest production car, we'll have to wait until the test driver gets his hands on one, to find out. Suffice it to say the F1 is significantly smaller than a Veyron at 4,500 mm long, 2,040 mm wide and only 1,150 mm high. Through the written facts, this car seems to be parallel to the Bugatti Veyron, Koenigsegg Agera R and Hennessey Venom GT supercars. *** [FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WEBER SPORTCARS | WORLDCARFANS | GTSPIRIT]
