    NO gearbox in the new Koenigsegg

    http://www.carthrottle.com/post/engi...out-a-gearbox/


    Not sure if any of you have missed the New Koenigsegg Regera and its "witch craft" no gear box...interesting how it works....by the sounds of it it would almost be like the Tesla which i think has "1 gear" or one of those Electric cars,but a fair bit more to it....and if i read it right...this would prevent any awesome burn outs....

    It uses a hydraulic coupling between the combustion engine and the wheels like a torque converter.

    Only to get the car moving Cale^. At 30km/hr it is fully engaged and a direct drive from the engine to the wheels. No gears. Top speed = redline.

    Pretty neat for sure. Crazy hp numbers.
    ALL THE HONDAS!!!

    So it has a torque convertor just like any other car. Which in some cars locks over 30km/hr. It just has enough torque from the electric motors and the 1100hp v8 to not need a gearbox.
