Click above for a high-res gallery of the Koenigsegg Quant

We're just about fed-up with Geneva Motor Show previews, but this is something to get excited about. Koenigsegg has announced plans to introduce a "new creation for the future" in Switzerland, and sent along a teaser of The Quant to whet our supercar appetites. Unfortunately, Koenigsegg's release about the concept is limited to a singular sentence, so we have no details on powertrain or production plans. But the head-on rendering looks promising and we'll have more from the floor in just over a week.

K-egg also released details on its new infotainment system for the current CCX, which incorporates all of the supercar's systems into one intuitive touchscreen. The satellite navigation, climate control and stereo system are all accessed through the new UI, which also allows drivers to monitor performance metrics with a G-force sensor, lap timer and torque meter, along with manipulating the chassis, traction control and new paddle-shifter system. The ATM Paddleshift setup controls an all-new gearbox that's 30 cm shorter than the manual transmission it replaces, improving weight distribution and delivering shifts of around 30 milliseconds. The gearbox is more compact than a dual-clutch unit, is able to handle up to 811 lb-ft of torque and features a new E-diff to improve cornering performance. You can check out the new infotainment system and get a high-res eyeful of The Quant in the gallery below.

      Is it the Koenigsegg (Can't) or (****)? How do you pronounce it? Or is it more realistically pronounced like the beginning of Quantum?

      koenigsegg doesn't have a manual anymore? *weep*
        • 5 Years Ago
        I think you can choose between a standard manual or automated on the options list. You can also option TCS and the Top Gear wing among other things.

      Hmmm, very small air inlets for a combustion engine. . . Could it be hybrid or electric?
        • 5 Years Ago
        @Elliott
        @Elliott: I'm guessing it's a mid-engined sports car. In that case, the small air intakes in front are just for cooling the radiator, front brakes, etc.

      That switch gear has a Mattel look to it.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Looks speed racer-ish.

      Some say The Stig just shuddered a little.

      So what is it this time? 300mph? Should be spectacular.
        • 5 Years Ago
        the stig shuddered. lmfao!

      love these cars... just hate their steering wheels, they just look cheap and out of place in a car of this stature.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I am psyched about the new car, but it is going to be hard to top the current CCX!
      (IMHO)
      • 5 Years Ago

      • 5 Years Ago
