T​his is how Koenigsegg made 600bhp from a 3-cylinder engine

T​hey call it the Tiny Friendly Giant

1y ago

Getting 150-200bhp from a 3-cylinder engine is fairly normal these days, but how about triple that figure?! Koenigsegg recently released the Gemera – the first ever four-seater hypercar – and while it develops 1,700bhp in total, the most remarkable thing is that 600bhp of that comes from a 3-cylinder engine.

As always, Christian von Koenigsegg has been as innovative as ever.

  • It really is incredible what they’ve done with a 3 cylinder hybrid. Hopefully other manufacturers will follow suite, could lead to hybrids being allowed in the future - past the unrealistic EV only deadlines.

  • At this rate of innovation, Koenigsegg will give us flying cars before Tesla :D

    Amazing engineering from the Swedes!

    • Sweeds already gave us a flying (hyper)car, SAAB, Gripen 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Well to be fair, BMW's M12 1500cc engine churned out 850hp at minimum and 1,400hp in qualifying trim. But, it's a race engine and I must say Koenigsegg did a great job with their new 3-cylinder engine as well.

    • This system was used in F1 more than 15 years ago.

      In V10 era when engines could devellop 19000 rpm.

    • You're right, but F1 engines are built for racing, not for daily use.

      It's always a great thing these technologies making their way into road cars.

  • Give Koenigsegg an engine of any size and they will get more power out of it than you can imagine!
