The Koenigsegg CC850 Is The First Car That's Truly Manual And Automatic How Koenigsegg's LST Transmission Works - 🤍youtu.be/MSxQtHOfljE Subscribe to Engineering Explained for more videos! - 🤍goo.gl/VZstk7 Recommended Books & Car Products - 🤍amzn.to/2BrekJm EE Shirts! - 🤍bit.ly/2BHsiuo Koenigsegg has yet again raised the bar in the hypercar arena. Their latest vehicle, the CC850, pays homage to the first Koenigsegg, the CC8S, and has an incredible transmission that allows for both automatic, as well as true manual operation. Yes, there's a clutch pedal, gear shifter, and all! In this video we'll break down how Koenigsegg's Engaged Shifter System (ESS) works. How does it differ from a traditional manual transmission? How do the gears work? How does the clutch work? How does the shifter work? How do you switch between automatic and manual modes? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Hah, it doesn't simulate gear grinding :)
Excellent video, Jason! Mind-blown doesn't even describe how I feel from such a small car company and almost a single [VERY smart] man. What companies with billions of dollars in annual revenue haven't done, he's done. Let's all be honest here: any that loves manual transmissions and is sad to see them disappearing, any sort of innovation is HIGH LY welcome. I was thinking the same as Jason about mid-way thru: just about everything has been throttle-by-wire since circa 2010, some much sooner. As long as the feel as the right, it gives more advantages like tuning; throttle pedal can feel "laggier" in "eco" mode, "normal" in "normal" mode, "sportier" and "sport mode", and the most aggressive in "track mode," with any other combination available as well depending on application (e.g. different tiny changes in various modes of off-road enthusiast vehicles like a Jeep Wrangler).
Me personally, the only thing I would change is have manual mode grab these gears: 2-3-4-5-6-8 as typically a gear change at mid-upper range is a smaller drop, so less felt, even if it does technical hurt some top-end performance on the track. That, or again with everything being "by wire," an eco mode would allow for 2-4-5-6-7-9 so that that top gear can get grabbed for fuel economy on the highway.
Koenigsegg, keep making Mercedes and the other "best engineering" companies look like child's play -- I LOVE IT!!
Very interesting, but I have one issue with this transmission: replacing clutches is going to be a very expensive exercise!
This is basically configured like a bicycle, but way cooler. Only Koenigsegg can create a marvel like this.
I see the coolness factor.... right up to the point of having to fix it (and trying to problem solve) when a single selector or other electronic component goes on the fritz.
Really boring. You are pressing the clutch but you get no benefit from it and you didn't have to. You could just shift away with the lever.
could you shift gears without pressing the clutch in this transmission?
D is just 7th gear in this model. Change my mind.
You look like you could run a marathon really really fast.
Fly By Wire has gotten more efficient since inception...
What a brilliant and simple explanation, congrats mate!
I would love to see koenigsegg in f1, but only if the regs were a lot more open
I miss explanation for the most important issue in this revolutionary system of clutches: how come are we going to be able to have the same surface of clutch that we have in traditional manuals, with a big diameter and a big surface of friction... but now we have a very little clutch in each of the gears and I believe each gear offers a very small diameter in order to have a clutch capable to retain such a torke.
therefore to me, here is the secret that we do not have unveiled yet. please if you can go deep on that, thank you very much, and congratulation for your contents
Geez that looks expensive to maintain!
He reinvent the transmission in general !
I want this transmission in every ice car on earth 🌎 👀😊✌️
Koenigsegg reinvent the cool doors, do you know? Nobody in car industry did that for production 😕?! Audi RSQ from iRobot had cool doors sadly Audi didn't try too put them in production 😕 😪 😔
So they sorta made a DCT manual kinda I think
This would be cool if Koenigsegg wasn’t a vaporware company. They’ll make what, two of these?
Amount if people watching this video who will never own this car:
All of them
LoL now they're Just being a smartass.
