248 MPH Without A Gearbox: Direct Drive -- /INSIDE KOENIGSEGG

Without Gearbox, Internal Combustible engine, rear wheel electric motors, crank electric motor, direct drive, hydraulic coupling to final drive. So it is Like in 7th gear standing still, 0-60 in 2.8 seconds, spin tires up to almost 170MPH. No need for gear box.
Koenigsegg does it again.
Even torque converter manufacturers evidently didn't get it, so they had to design it themselves, as usual.

Last week I watched a video on the camless head. Crazy high tech stuff. Hopefully some of it trickles down to everyday cars like he seems to want.

No camshafts or rocker arms either... Still has valves and springs. I half expected some sort of spinning uberanium disc and electromagnetic setup. Its about time. I was supposed to be in flying cars by the year 2000. We still explode gas to make things move.

I think that is why he made Freevalve its own thing. Fingers are crossed for the economy of fuel alone.

Very interesting. I like looking at that machined aluminum... it looks like a UFO part.

I think deep down we all want an Oompaloompa....
Still wouldn't swap my LS1 for one though

A true engineer right there, when I saw the freevalve concept it just made sense!
As for this direct drive hybrid motor? Wow just epic.love the thing and wish the company all the success in the future.
oh S & F of course.

My Impala has the Chevy V6 3900... an improved 3800 (I have owned 4 other GM vehicles, 3 with the 3800 and my Buick GS with a supercharged 3800.)

The 3900 in my Impala actually feels like the old Chevy 305. Great torque (for a 4500 lb car) and she will MOVE

I did get her to 110 mph in Montana last year.... based on her handling, 140 mph is probably doable.

248?

...not so much...

Lol....
I've also had the 3.8 Buick, in a 1600kg sedan....good times.
But, after having the LS1, everything else seems timid

Interesting.
Not really high tech though.

Is still uses an IC engine with a electric motor as a booster, running thru a high stall converter with one gear.

Basically like a 2 speed powerglide still used by hot street cars and drag racers today.

Its not really advanced technology......one of the issues with high stall converters is heat.

That aluminium unit would create an awful lot of it, Im sure it will have lots of cooling (oil and air), not sure of the strength durability between a steel converter and an aluminium one, especially at 1500+hp. Steel ones have been proven in drag racing for 50 years.

The 3900, for lack of a better term... has some ass...

I only really cracked her wide open once... it truly feels like a V8 under the hood; she will jump and scoot, trust me.

Trust me, the newer Impalas with the 3900 will move
It really feels like a 305, but with better high end acceleration...

Always love Koenigsegg stuff. Real impressive.

I feel ya on the LS1. Used to have a 2000 Z28 that I squeaked into the 10's full bolt on with a 100 shot. Fun car, but mods add up quick.

Now I have an LSJ ( 2.0 S/C Ecotec ). Makes 260whp on 93, 277 on E85. Is every bit as fast as my 2000 Z28 was stock, a little faster actually.

Hoping to hit 400ish wheel when the turbo swap I ordered for Black Friday gets here.

Beware of the Saturn that sounds like it has a cold...

This is what I have, don't have the heart to modify it....HSV SV99

Though when the motor does finally give it up, I'd imagine a bit of cam and tune will be on the cards

There's guys here in oz running 10s with the Buick ecotec v6s....street radials....amazing engines

Koenigsegg has a car called the (One1) top speed 278mph wondering if it uses the same non gear box as the one on the op?.

Still very impressive though.

I watched that the other day. Sure wish I could get my hands on one of those babies. It's gotta be so awesome to be this guy. He knew what he wanted to do at 5 years old, and he has forged his own path of greatness with his own hand. This is the type of guy people should look up to IMO.

im more than happy with my turbo 4 banger.
i love it
we will never see this kind of tech funnel down to every day drivers in our lifetime. like someone said, back in the 80's we were told that cars were going to be flying by the oughts

I'll stick with my 949 fireblade, she's good for 180 mph.
Just on the 600 at the mo cos the blade would just spin up the rear and spit me off with winter here.
You yanks must laugh at our 1400cc etc cars. Then petrol ain't cheap in the uk.
Them LS1 engines are mighty fine blocks though, solid piece of kit that
