Drive channel continues its "Inside Koenigsegg" web series with a new episode that talks about the internal combustion engines used in the Koenigsegg supercars. In this episode, alongside Christian Von Koenigsegg you will see Urban Carlso. Both they are talking about the company’s Free Valve technology that does not require a camshaft to run. This engineering is pioneered by Koenigsegg for future use, but is already running in a Saab 9-5 test mule.
This system has been developed by Cargine and it simply being called "Free Valve system." It allows the timing of the intake and the exhaust system to be programmed independently. The engine can then "decide" based on driving conditions which one to use to maximize performance. This allows a greater degree of control over the engine which in turn provides significant performance benefits.
It is believed that this system will enter mass production is 12-18 months.
