1) You probably don't get past 2nd gear at 60 mph

2) PPE is likely required.

3) 62 MPH? Any entrance ramp. 260 MPH? You can outrun the cops, so any highway, or the salt flats.

4) Only in your dreams, unless you have cash in hand, no doubt.

1. How do you shift through 7 gears in 2.9 seconds?

2. Do I have to wear a helmet and fireproof jump suit while driving as shown in the photos? 

3. Where do I get to drive at those speeds?

4. Where do I go for a test drive?

 Tony Stark, is that you?

I would not even bother building a shed, I would just shove my junk out into the yard to park this in my garage!

Does it really matter that it isn't a V-12? it goes 260mph!!! Isn't that faster than a Veyron?

Chuck, first things first.  I WANT ONE!!  I just planning to build a shed so that I can clear out the third bay in the garage.  This would fit nicely there.

Actually, one of my sons and I were watching this documentary on Koenigsegg on-line.  It was great.  There was a guy whose job it was to test the cars.  I am not sure of what else he does.  The camera was mounted inside the car aand pointed at the driver and passenger (the documentary film maker).  The expressions were priceless.  Koenigsegg's factory is at an old air base.  They use the runways to test.  The test driver was in pure heaven, smiling all the time, while driving this car, hard.  I think he was 22 years old.  The film maker was in sheer terror the whole time. 

I am a little dissiapointed though.  I thought it might be a V-12.  Oh, well.

The American motorcycle is enjoying a mini-renaissance today, as the recent success of bike manufacturers Harley-Davidson, Indian Motorcycle, and Victory Motorcycles, among others, amply indicate.
The question of whether engineers could have foreseen the shortcut maintenance procedures that led to the crash of American Airlines Flight 191 in 1979 will probably linger for as long as there is an engineering profession.
More than 35 years later, the post-mortem on one of the country’s worst engineering disasters appears to be simple. A contractor asked for a change in an original design. The change was approved by engineers, later resulting in a mammoth structural collapse that killed 114 people and injured 216 more.
If you’re an embedded systems engineer whose analog capabilities are getting a little bit rusty, then you’ll want to take note of an upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Analog Design for the Digital World,” running Monday, Nov. 17 through Friday, Nov. 21.
It’s time once again for the Annual Design News Science and Engineering Movie Contest, which names no winners, awards no prizes, isn’t really a contest, and appears every three years or so.
