Koenigsegg Jesko has been unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, showcasing what lightweight petrol performance car would feel with the most elite possible components of the motoring world. The name was derived from the first name of brand’s founder Christian’s father, Jesko von Koenigsegg.
The car comes with some mind-blowing statistics and without any doubt, the claimed top speed of 482 kph tags the Jesko as the fastest production-spec hypercar in the world. The powerful machine looks mesmerizing from every angle, using carbon fiber extensively to keep the weight low in stock settings. The lights are vertically designed for the front. The rear view of the Jesko is quite familiar as most supercars tend to use curves at the back than sharp lines like the Lamborghini cars.
The 5.0L V8 engine on the Jesko has reached next levels of efficiency through the use of better components and most accurate value to prove the statement is the 1600 HP of power output using the E85 biofuel. The car brings 1500 Nm of torque, that too with more than 1000 Nm available within the accessible 2700-6170 rpm range. When using premium petrol, the power value drops to 1280 HP on the hypercar. The redline for this powerful engine comes at 8500 rpm.
The total engine weight quoted by the brand is just 189 kg while the use of 9-speed light speed transmission further refined the process by ending time between the shifts. The car can produce 1400 kg of downforce when speeding above 300 kph while the active rear wheel steering and other settings help with improved handling for the track.
The front of the Jesko comes with 20-inch wheels while rear features 21-inch setup, that too with forged aluminium as the material. The race ready weight of 1420 kg makes the Jesko a powerful option in comparison to the closest rival, Bugatti Chiron. Koenigsegg Jesko is reported to be priced around $3M (INR 21.16 crore, direct conversion).
