The 1360HP Heart of the Koenigsegg One:1 – /INSIDE KOENIGSEGG

Christian von Koenigsegg explains how his team has developed the new Koenigsegg One:1 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine which produces 1,360 hp and 1,371 N·m (1,011 lb·ft) of torque at 6000 rpm.Total weight of the engine is only 197 kg (434 lb) thanks to a carbon fiber intake manifold and the aluminum construction. The transmission is a 7-speed dual clutch with paddle shifters.

  1. These Koenigsegg videos are the worst. Just this guy talking about his tech and not really showing much of it. Like yea, we get it dude, you're super smart and you've made some impressive shit… Can we see it? You talk about raising the RPM of the engine, so show it on a test stand or something.

  2. 5 years later… they removed the Camshaft to be replaced with a valve actuation system, and eliminated the entire transmission system to be replaced with a KDD system! – this company will make it to 300MPH before we even know it!

  3. No turbo-charged engine is going to come close to the ability of a Hybrid, the 918 would make this look stupid on anything other than a fast race-track. Big turbo charged motor lags like hell.

  4. As on date, an upgraded version of this engine makes about 1450 HP which works around to an incredible 295 HP / L. So that's the highest specific power output of any ICE ever made as on date, except F1 cars.

  5. Watching these videos gives me a better appreciation for why these damn cars cost a million dollars apiece. It costs a LOT of money to pay craftsmen to slowly and carefully assemble and double-check parts that would be bolted together without a second thought in a normal assembly line. They produce a tiny fraction of the total output of a car factory, but the company still has all the same expenses to pay.

  6. Yeah constantly recharging batteries to assist the more powerful engine, in the meanwhile carrying excess weight. Use the batteries to assist a turbo unit like F1 👍

  7. Four years later and Christian is indeed building hybrid engines. But always with that twist of sheer genius that marks the man as a true visionary. Koenigsegg engineering has, and will always, leave me feeling breathless!
