Koenigsegg Eliminates Camshaft in New Engine

Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg is shocking the auto industry with a new engine that lacks the traditional camshaft. This radical design has wheels spinning around the world and features a twin-turbo V8. Is this the luxury concept car of the future or the future joke of the industry?

How it works: The camless engine shoots the valve open with pneumatically driven actuators rather than a camshaft and valve spring.

The gains:
•    An engine that is 30% more efficient than the road and racecars of today (so they claim)
•    It is lighter than a camshaft
•    Implements secret Formula One technology

The gripes:
•    It is expensive
•    It is in beta mode and rather crude
•    It is loud—and not in the desirable manner!



Cutting edge technology is never a bad thing, especially when it is incorporated into something as fantastic as a Koenigsegg hypercar!
