Really impressive.

Regarding your question, I am certain we are not going to find out

Tech has been in F1 for a while. Neat to see it working it's way into road cars. Ultra high RPM 4 cycle engines.
With torque based race engines now, I would think the need for a ultra fast valve train has diminished.

Big advantage to be able to run on 8 or 4 or 2 cylinders and swap which ones are driving to even wear and engine heat. Could be pretty neat if we still need gasoline in the future.

I was wondering if this had been discussed before. Thanks for the link.

Koenigsegg has developed a camless engine. It uses pneumatic actuators to open and close valves. The benefits seem pretty impressive. Makes me wonder how an Ecoboost 3.5L would run with this technology?
