Christian Von Koenigsegg
set no specific goals when he started to build his own engine. He simply wanted to create the best, most extreme engine possible. After years of testing and refinement, the latest 5.0-liter V8 weighs just 198 kg while
putting out almost 1,200 horsepower. Certain aspects of the powertrain, such as the flex-fuel sensor - a system Koenigsegg says Ferrari
will be replicating in their new hypercars - are hugely impressive, particularly for a such relatively small operation.
