Koenigsegg Free Valve engine
Koenigsegg Free Valve system allows a greater control over the exhaust valves and the engine’s intake because of the electro-hydraulic-pneumatic actuators. The name of this system is combination of two sister companies – Koenigsegg and Free Valve. Qoros ( Chinese carmaker ) has joined Koenigsegg in demonstrating the camless engine.
The Free Valve engine uses electro-hydraulic-pneumatic actuators to provide precise control over each valve for more power and a 12 to 17 percent improvement in fuel economy.
This engine will allow more power even from a more compact package, which should mean punchy performance from engines that meet the ever-tightening Euro and Beijing emissions standards.
There is no mention of a release or production date for the Koenigsegg Free Valve engine, currently the engine remains a concept.
