Koenigsegg Gemera

Post

So a four-seat GT hybrid from Koenigsegg with 1700bhp from an ICE along with 3 electric motors. The engine [which is the most interesting bit to me] is a three-cylinder, twin-turbo 2.0-litre with their ‘Freevalve’ technology producing 600bhp. 0-100 in 1.9 seconds with a top speed of around 400 km/h. It has a dry weight of 1715 kilos. The range is very curious, which is 50 km for electric engines and 950 km for the ICE. The fuel capacity is 75 L.

Engine drives the front wheels according to Top Gear, this is a front engine car then? Bit of a departure for the company.

Only 1700bhp? Not enough to me :lol: :lol:

Will this nosense competition stop at some point or they (all manufacturers) will continue increasing power forever?

ICE drives front wheels and two electric motors drives rear wheels...so it's four wheel drive. Car also have four wheel steer and torque vectoring. Very interesting concept! :shock:

Very strange, especially with the engine being transverse.

Its longitudinal, and CvK usually does not think in conventional terms :D

I didnt even notice it in the layout until now, I thought the muffler was the valve cover. That's even stranger.

Strange but extremely visionary.
Im seriously excited about the freevalve technology.

The engine has 3 cylinders with 4 valves per cylinder. So there is 6 exhaust valves, where each has its own seperate exhaust liner. So from each cylinder one exhaust valve exhausts into one turbo, and the other into the second turbo.
Its pretty neat that you can open every valve individually at any time.

The ICE is small and relatively light because of the freevalve tech, it sends it's power to the front via the hydracoup they used in the Regera if i'm not mistaken...

Here's a good video about the freevalve tech

Well to some degree it's thanks to electrification that they are all really pushing up the bhp numbers because it's super easy to just drop in 4x500bhp electric motors ... 1000bhp+ was the exception so far, the holy trinity did not get there, it was the Bugattis and Koenigseggs mainly... now i lost count of how many new 1000 to 2000bhp EVs are being announced :lol:
Nio, Rimac, Lotus, Aspark, Pininfarina ... there's probably more

Yes, the hydracoup is from the Regera. I could really see this system implementet in some sort of truck, with a diesel engine assisted by the electro motor, through a hydrocoup

In this video Koenigsegg saying that this valve tech allow to work until 20.000 rpm. First time they introduce free valve tech in another video I thought they will do the job completely by solenoids. I was wondering, that time that after combustion strok, can that solenoid open the exhaust valve when there is gas pressure in the Chamber? Now I see that they are not using solenoid itself but using solenoid as actuators and air to make the job. As you know that air is compresable. So I wonder if air is convenient to make precise work with valves or can it be done with same speed with oil which is not compresable and looks able to do more precise job.

The KDD (direct drive) is fascinating. In theory duller than a Prius/CVT, but it seems the growling of the ICE and instant torque of the electric motors compensate more than enough.

How does that compare to say a Desmo system or a pneumatic system used in Formula 1?
I mean in terms of the absolute rpm limits for each system.
