The most amazing thing is that there are no turbo’s nor any superchargers.
For the record, Christian Von Koenigsegg didn’t fabricate a twin-turbo or supercharged V8 for his companion, Victor Muller. Muller is the originator and CEO of Spyker, and like his Swedish partner, the Dutch-conceived Muller cherishes capable and extraordinary cars. Both have their own supercar organizations, yet each have their own particular remarkable theories. In any case, that by itself hasn’t prevented Koenigsegg from building up a completely bespoke 6.0-liter normally suctioned V8 for Spyker.
While dialogs about this motor venture between the two men started in 2012, it wasn’t until this past Tuesday at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show that the arrangement was made open and the assention marked in that spot at the Spyker stand.
Muller revealed to us that his Koenigsegg-outlined and assembled V8 won’t just power the up and coming C8 Preliator Spyder, additionally all future Spykers, which will (at long last!) incorporate a creation variant of the Peking-to-Paris SUV. As per Muller, “The C8 Preliator Spyder is the main car on the planet with a normally suctioned 600 hp and a six-speed manual gearbox (additionally from Koenigsegg). That is exceptional.”
Furthermore, obviously, Koenigsegg gave the motor numerous special touches, incorporating cylinders engraved with the Koenigsegg logo. A substantial number of the motor’s segments are 3D printed also.
Additionally intriguing is the way that the motor was planned from the persuade go to be perfect with an electric-half breed help framework, an innovation that Muller is completely mindful he’ll be applying sooner rather than later. “Super sports cars are the steeds individuals will keep when conventional cars care gone,” Muller included. “In 20 years electric self-driving cars will rule society on the loose.” In the interim, Muller and Koenigsegg seem to have created one damnation of a NA V8.
