Spirit of Performance - Koenigsegg Prestera
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This project show a vision for how performance could be defined by individual experiences, rather than the conventional horsepower, laptimes or engine effect. When interacting with the Prestera, it shows character and the achievement of performance is experienced in the influence and connection between man and machine, similar to that of a rider and a horse. It is a learning process to achieve a type of symbiosis that will promote stronger relationships and longer lasting values of sustainable ownership. It enhance the private vehicle experience with intuition based operation that use natural motions of mobility like tilting and weight shifting while giving the vehicle a mutual role of control. This allows the driver to experience deeper sensations without risk of accident and also show a vision of how we could interact with smart vehicles in 40 years by utilizing artificiall intelligence. The proposed result also include sustainable efficiency with a renewable energy source in compressed air that continuously recharge energy. And low friction vehicle dynamics that utilize ground effect to increase efficiency. It is a radical and active vehicle architecture to promote innovation with consciously sustainable values. The vehicle architecture actively adapts to different situations like accelerating, braking, speeding and cornering and apply different technological principles for each mode. By being versatile as a overall design, Prestera would trial innovation that could trickle down into a variety of private vehicle types for the benefit of future mainstream automotive industry.
