Video: Inside Koenigsegg - A Look At The 3D Printed Variable Turbo
The next installment of Koenigsegg’s "Inside Koenigsegg" web series has been released and this time, the point of discussion centers on the car’s 3D-printed, variable-turbo technology. Jumping from the last episode, we know see Christian Von Koenigsegg at the Geneva Motor Show talking about a variable turbo technology, an idea his company began thinking off a few years ago to give reasonably sized engines more power versatility. Basically, Koenigsegg talked about the importance of the turbo turbine housing, which helps the engine run smoother and more efficiently. To achieve that, Koenigsegg developed two housings in one, featuring an inner house that’s close to the turbine and a bigger turbo housing that serves the purpose of improving the engine’s breathing at a higher RPM.
Not surprisingly it’s technology that Koenigsegg developed on its own and used on the One:1 megacar. At this point, it’s hard to imagine how many more tricks and new tech Koenigsegg plans to highlight from its one-of-a-kind exotic.
At the rate its going with these Inside Koenigsegg episodes, there’s a good chance that we’re going to see more of the One:1’s incredible anatomy.
Here’s a suggestion, though. If Koenigsegg really wanted to make an impact with this web series, it should really try to pace the release of these episodes. Nobody’s trying to beat you, guys, so you can take your time with releasing new episodes to build up the suspense a little bit.
