Koenigsegg may have just debuted its first “megacar” but more could be on the way.
Speaking to Top Gear, the Swedish automaker’s CEO Christian von Koenigsegg confirmed that a four-door model is under consideration and it could debut within the next few years. Unfortunately details beyond that weren’t revealed, but Koenigsegg did spill some future technologies the company is working on including the idea of an engine without camshafts. Without getting too technical, Koenigsegg revealed that he’s been working on the technology for nearly 14 years and has eight employees working on it full time for the last few years.
In fact, he expanded saying that it’s “getting ready for fruition” and that the automaker is working with “a couple of large OEMs and looking to implement it.” As for a competitor in the sports car segment akin to the Porsche 911, don’t expect it to come from Koenigsegg anytime soon, if at all. The automaker has no plans to build a competitor to the Ferrari 458, Porsche 911 or even McLaren’s new sports cars, calling the segment “a hornet’s nest.”
At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg debuted the Regera hybrid megacar and imagining that powertrain in a four-door body will surely get supercar enthusiasts salivating.
