Koenigsegg’s Camshaft-less Engine Explained

Never heard of such a thing. Very interesting.

It sounds promising, but I fear the complexity of it and the likely expense when it breaks down. Plus, I wouldn't know how to fix it.

Just imagine your car with a 4 position rotary switch. Position 1 mild mannered grocery getter. Position 4 fire breathing beast, that eats up Porsches and Corvettes.

Yes, been waiting for this to happen. The electronics and timing are no problem they already do it with fuel injection and spark. Making a reliable solenoid, strong enough, fast enough, light enough, and cheap enough is a real challenge. The valve it's attached to gets hot as hell, being in the fire one, two, or three thousand times a minute, meaning the solenoid will see much of that heat too.

Disgruntled much?

Why is he writing in both pounds and miles? Are UK odometers not in km?

Puerto Rico is that way. Distance exempt from the metric system

you want an engine that runs on solenoids? I'll give you solenoid engine.

That's a lot of spare tires. Clever of him to mount them in those locations and let them freewheel.

I feel like he needs a pipe for some reason.
