How Koenigsegg's 7-Clutch LST Work - Sponsored By AutoTempest
The Koenigsegg Jesko is a marvel of modern engineering. With a 5.0L twin-turbo V8 engine, it produces 1600 horsepower on E85 fuel. That's just the start. Power is sent through a 9-speed, 7 clutch transmission. Why on earth would a transmission need 7 clutches? For insanely fast shifts, from any gear to any other gear, that is. According to Koenigsegg, the clutches can open and close in as little as just 2 milliseconds! The setup uses three shafts and compound gearing to make it all work, resulting in less gear pairs overall. With a clutch for each gear pair, shifts are not only insanely fast, but there's never a loss of torque during upshifts either, as the clutches overlap while closing and opening, meaning you'll retain positive torque during the shift. Check out the video to learn all about how it works!
