Koenigsegg's Next Supercar Will Have a Camless Engine

Koenigsegg's Next Supercar Will Have a Camless Engine Thanks to its tie-up with National Electric Vehicle Sweden, Koenigsegg is aiming to bring its innovaitve Freevalve engine to market very soon. Pictured above: the hybrid, gearbox-less Koenigsegg Regera. Earlier this week, Koenigsegg announced that it had sold a 20-percent stake in the company to National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS), the automaker trying to make all-electric cars based on old Saabs. What is Koenigsegg seeking with this deal? Well money, obviously, but more volume, too. And it's chasing volume in the most Koenigsegg-y way possible.

Koenigsegg was the first extreme car manufacturer to take steps toward green technology with the release of the biofuel CCXR in 2007. Lightweight glass system, power windows, adjustable pedals and steering column, One : 1 stitching, adjustable light weight race seats, carbon ceramic brakes, Sport

The 86th Geneva Motor Show is almost upon us. Koenigsegg will be there with three outstanding cars on display at the Koenigsegg stand, including two world premieres. A brand new build Koenigsegg Agera RS The Koenigsegg Agera RS was one of two world premieres at last year’s Geneva Motor

Koenigsegg never ceases to amaze, and it's time to add a new name to your dream car list: Jesko. The Koenigsegg Jesko, named after Christian von Koenigsegg's father, was just revealed at the Geneva Motor Show as a replacement for the Agera RS. This isn't just a variation of the Agera, either; it's a totally new car.

Koenigsegg was the first Hypercar manufacturer to take steps toward green technology with the release of the biofuel CCXR in 2007. As 95 octane fuel has less octane than ethanol E85, the power is reduced to 960hp with 1100Nm of torque due to the boost pressure and ignition timing being altered

It's difficult to consider one part of this vehicle the highlight to lead with, since the entire car is filled to the brim with shocking performance technology. The flat-plane crank 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine makes 1,600 horsepower and 1,106 pound-feet of torque when you pump E85 through its veins. Regular old gasoline brings the power down to a still totally bonkers 1,280 horsepower. To keep boost pressure up, Koenigsegg has fitted the Jesko with an air tank and compressor that provide a 20-bar shot of air within the turbocharger system for pre-spooling purposes. Now that's a pretty metal solution to turbo lag.

The engine is also fitted with what Koenigsegg claims is the world's lightest production V8 crankshaft, (27.6 pounds) milled from a single billet of Swedish Dievar steel. Koenigsegg says vibrations are quelled by active engine mounts similar to those used in the Regera, along with lighter connecting rods and pistons.

How Koenigsegg Made a Better Ford V-8

How Koenigsegg Made a Better Ford V-8 The Swedish company's naturally aspirated V-8 has humble beginnings, but has become something extraordinary. Koenigsegg revealed a 600 horsepower naturally aspirated engine at the Geneva Motor Show last year, but something about it looked very familiar. It is well known that Koenigsegg used the Ford Modular motor in their early years, so it wasn't surprising to find that portions of the new engine resemble modern Ford V-8s. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Koenigsegg has produced the world’s first ever car finished completely in Koenigsegg Naked Carbon – KNC. KNC involves no lacquer, varnish or alternative coating being used on top of the carbon surface. The thin layer of epoxy that normally covers a high-end autoclaved cured carbon piece is carefully

The Koenigsegg stand at this year’s Geneva Motor Show has no shortage of power . With a pair of Regeras and a custom Agera RS, it comes out to The two Regeras on display are the first customer cars to come from the factory in Angelholm, Sweden following the introduction of the prototype last year.

Next up on the list of absurdly awesome things is a new nine-speed transmission with seven(!) clutches. Koenigsegg has a good reason for this obscene number of clutches, though. Dual-clutch units only allow gear changes between adjacent gears. This transmission will allow you to fly into whatever gear is optimal at whatever time. For example, if you want to shift from seventh to fourth gear in a dual-clutch transmission, the gears are changed one at a time going downward. The Jesko is capable of instantly selecting a gear without having to wait for several gear changes to get there (up to five gears away). You access this "optimal gear selection" by giving the paddle an extra hard click versus a normal, lighter click for single gear changes. This multi-clutch transmission is also significantly lighter than traditional dual-clutch units, partly because it does away with synchro rings.

Koenigsegg One:1 Getting Paint Protection Is A Must-See

Koenigsegg One:1 Getting Paint Protection Is A Must-See A high-end detail shop in London lovingly administers paint protection film to one of the fastest cars in the world. Rock chips stink. Cars are meant to be driven and used, but there's a price to pay. Your car's beautiful face getting marred by rocks and other debris is no fun at all. What's the solution? Paint protection film. Topaz, a high-end auto detailing outfit hailing from London, has released this beautifully-produced video, showing the paint protection process in painstaking detail. They're not protecting just any car, either: it's a one of sixteen Koenigsegg One:1.

The first Koenigsegg production prototype made its public debut at the Paris Motor Show in September, 2000. The car on show was the first ever Koenigsegg CC8S production prototype, which later became the test car and crash-test car that enabled Koenigsegg to homologate vehicles for sale.

There were three Koenigsegg vehicles participating in this year’s Festival of Speed, one provided by the factory and two provided by private owners. Hours ago Christian von Koenigsegg hosted a press conference at Geneva International Motor Show. In this launch of the two new models, Christian

The carbon fiber monocoque is larger in length and height than the Regera's, giving the interior more space. Koenigsegg says it retained the same suspension design as the Regera, but has "improved" it. Adjustable Ohlins dampers are at all four corners, along with an additional damper in the front suspension meant to maintain an optimal ride height during high aerodynamic loads. The Jesko has a rear-wheel steering system capable of turning the wheels three degrees in either direction depending on the condition. Lightweight carbon fiber wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Pilot Sport Cup 2 Rs are available for dry weather motoring exclusively, featuring a 10 percent larger contact patch and a revised tread design.

Koenigsegg says this is the most aggressive aero package it has ever fitted onto one of its cars. An active wing, active underbody flaps and huge splitter work together to produce 1,764 pounds of downforce at 155 mph. That's a 30 percent increase in downforce over the One:1 at similar speeds.

The Jesko is probably the easiest to live with Koenigsegg ever made, too. Those fancy, sliding doors now open further and higher away from curbs. It has a nine-inch infotainment system with Bluetooth, USB inputs, wireless phone charging and a top-view camera, and all the systems can be updated over the air via the Koenigsegg Cloud. So yeah, forget iCloud, and give us the Koenigsegg Cloud, please. Your instrument cluster is a five-inch digital screen mounted directly to the steering wheel, and there's an analog G meter to boot. Also, the roof comes off. What more could you want?

The Koenigsegg Jesko Has 1600 HP and Promises a 300-MPH Top Speed

The Koenigsegg Jesko Has 1600 HP and Promises a 300-MPH Top Speed It also has a nine-speed gearbox with seven clutches. According to Christian von Koenigsegg, founder of the supercar company that bears his name, the Jesko is probably the last Koenigsegg without some form of electrification. Yet it should still have enough power and downforce to surpass 300 MPH. And even though it's the successor to the car that's already the fastest in the world, this Agera RS replacement is a clean sheet design.

On October 1 st, 2017, a Koenigsegg Agera RS drove from 0 km/h to 400 km/h and back to 0 in 36.44 seconds. The Agera RS was driven by Niklas Lilja and the

Koenigsegg 's next hypercar already exists in virtual reality, but unless you're one of the firm's ultra-wealthy potential customers, then don't expect to see it until next year's Geneva Motor Show. Company boos Christian von Koenigsegg hints that the new model is worth the wait, though.

All this comes in a car that weighs only 3,130 pounds. Koenigsegg doesn't quote a top speed for the Jesko, but there are already plans to make a version called the Jesko 300. This one will be made with the goal of reaching speeds of over 300 mph, so expect a less aggressive aero treatment. A Jesko starts for about $3 million, but there can't be many buyers who look at the MSRP when Koenigsegg shopping. We do know only 125 will be built, and 80 were spoken for at the time we published this story.

The 1600-HP Koenigsegg Jesko Isn't Just Insanely Fast, It's Also Technically Fascinating.
Named after the father of the company's CEO and featuring a crazy transmission, the latest Koenigsegg is a helluva tribute. Race Car Tech Building on the Agera's carbon-fiber and aluminum-honeycomb chassis tub, the Jesko's chassis is slightly longer and taller, which allows for more interior space, particularly in terms of head- and legroom.
