Swedish company Cargines has announced that they have readied a new engine valve technology that they promise will be quite revolutionary. According to their website and a brief piece of news in the Swedish car press, the technology features pneumatic control of engine valves. According to the company, this gives individual and very precise control of valve timing and opening. Although no numbers were announced, the company claims that the new system reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The first implementation of this technology won't be going to be any super efficient tiny car but into supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg's CC model. Thanks to Orjan for the tip.
