Koenigsegg Says Camshafts Will Disappear From Production Engines In Ten Years Time

We met Christian von Koenigsegg, the father of Sweden's hypercars, while he was hanging out at Spyker's stand at the Geneva Motor Show. He told us something quite juicy there -- that in about 10 years or so, automobile engines won't have camshafts anymore. He's been working on his camless engines for a while.

Many companies have been toying around with the idea, including Renault, BMW, General Motors, Ricardo, Lotus, Ford and Valeo. Fiat employs electro-hydraulic variable valve actuation technology in its Multiair engines. Still, with no official prototypes in sight apart from Cargine's, 10 years seems like a tight deadline.

We will see, but for now, here is something slightly more traditional: Christian's 100th car, the Agera Hundra.
