Koenigsegg And Qoros Working On 1.6-liter Engine That Could Produce More Than 400 Horsepower

It wasn’t that long ago that I gave you a run down on how the Then, at the it was announced that At the time, it was displayed next to the a car based on the and a preview of what production model may be the first to use the It’s been nearly a month since then, but in a recent interview between Carbuzz and Christian von Koenigsegg, it was disclosed that is working on a 1.6-liter engine that could produce 400 horsepower or more.

We’re not sure if it will be the engine that will be used in production model derived from the Qamless Concept, but it looks like and are working together on the project, so it is quite possible. At this time, the two brands are simply developing a concept proof, but that is the next step in the usage of a camless engine in a production vehicle.

In the interview, CvK said, “We are currently working on a 1.6-liter engine with Chinese carmaker Qoros that will have the potential to produce 400 horsepower or more. The same principles with which we designed the and engines can be applied to these smaller engines. By reducing the bore and elongating the stroke of the piston, we are able to lessen the heat losses from the engine.”

Granted, it’s not a lot of information to go by at this point, but it does show that both Qoros and Koenigsegg are serious about evolving the internal combustion engine. While this new conceptual engine may not be the exact model that will go into the production version of the Qamless Concept, it probably won’t be far off from the production engine. The ICE may be slowly dying off as we make the transition to alternative fuels like the electricity and hydrogen, but the camless engine may extend the life of the ICE for a little while longer.
