The Once (and Future?) Fastest Production Car in the World, the Swedish made Koenigsegg, has announced plans to introduce The Quant — a “new creation for the future” at the 79th Geneva Autoshow in March. However, all their giving us is the above photo. Teasers. No news on engine, powertrain, zilch.

In Feb of 2005 the Koenigsegg CCR broke the Guinness record for the fastest production car in the world at 241.63 mph, breaking the record previously held by the McLaren F1. The record was held until September 2005 when the long awaited Bugatti Veyron broke that record at 407.5 km/h (253.2 mph) — but that was at their homecourt, VW testing track so the kids at Koenigsegg don’t really buy it. Regardless, these cars are retardedly fast. One thing they did shed light on is their new infotainment system, which Autoblog described below:

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.”
