Koenigsegg is a small Swedish manufacturer known mainly for its supercars and its advanced technology. A few years ago became the first brand to mount wheels carbon fiber in their vehicles. A work of art from the point of view of engineering that reduced weight of this element without losing properties such as stiffness. Although now follow the development of this technology.
own Christian von Koenigsegg is in charge of explaining through this video the functionality of your tires. Admits that when the developed for the Agera not worried on your aspect and simply focused on that were the most effective possible. Now with the Koenigsegg Regera, the thing is changed, and the Swedish brand has shown a new design that is more attractive and still does not lose properties.
According to von Koenigsegg, the forms of this rim carbon fiber would not have been possible in other materials. Only this material can bear the design, as in others, the structure would be too heavy or too weak. The advantage of the carbon fiber hollow is that gives you more freedom for its lightness and resistance. In fact has the same properties that its predecessors we saw in the Koenigsegg Agera.
will Be necessary for a vehicle like the Koenigsegg Regera, which develops 1.500 CV, and almost 2,000 Nm of torque. Achieves this thanks to a hybrid system that joins a V8 biturbo engine of 5.0 liters with three other electric motors. It is expected that their services are of scandal, by the 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, the 0-200 km/h in 6,6 seconds and reaching a top speed of over 400 km/h. All of this without gearbox, which has been superseded by the system-Direct Drive.
