Koenigsegg showed how to conduct crash tests of their hypercarsMay 1, 2019
Each car for public roads must pass a series of certification tests, among which are crash tests. For large automakers that make millions of cars annually, this is not a problem. It is quite another thing when it comes to expensive piece models like Koenigsegg.
YouTube channel Apex One presented a video that shows crash tests of Koenigsegg cars. The 6-minute clip allows you to look behind the scenes of supercar tests that accompany the comments of both the company’s ordinary employees and the founder of the company, Christian von Königssee.
From the video it becomes clear that all crash tests require 16 cars. At the same time, the annual production of client Koenigsegg is about the same as supercars, so the company uses one carbon monocoque for testing, which was originally designed to withstand various accidents and impact tests without destruction.
The company reduces costs due to the fact that it saves the chassis, changing only external elements and deformable components, and also due to the extensive use of computer modeling in the development of machines.
