Koenigsegg Jesko Revealed at Geneva Motor Show

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
