Swedish supercar company Koenigsegg has just revealed the Agera successor at this years Geneva Motor Show. The new hypercar is named Jesko after Christian’s father, and is built on a twin-turbocharged V8 engine. The Jesko get’s a new 180 degree flat-plane crankshaft, intake and larger turbochargers. Flat-plane crankshafts would normally cause increased vibration, but Koenigsegg addressed this issue with active engine mounts lifted from the Agera. An innovative air-injection system pre-spools the turbocharger for instant response.
In terms of specs, here is what we know as of now:
Engine: 5.0L V8 Twin-Turbo
Output: 1280hp or 1600hp on E85 and 1500 Nm torque
Gearbox: 9-speed Koenigsegg Light Speed Transmission (LST)
Rev Limit: 8,500rpm
Downforce: 1000 kg at 275 km/h
