The Unparalleled Power of the Koenigsegg Jesko

Many supercars have become no better than grocery getters when compared to the methodical masterpieces being produced by the likes of Koenigsegg. This new influx of mega hypercars is operating on another automotive level – and we’re all for it…

The stunningly luscious Jesko is named after the CEO Christian Von Koenigsegg’s father. It’s the latest and in our opinion the greatest creation to come from the Koenigsegg crew, and lines up against the Bugatti Chiron and McLaren Senna.

Replacing the incredibly capable Agera RS, the Jesko takes on a similar look, but features a huge rear wing, rear diffuser, and front splitter, giving it an aerodynamic downforce of 1400 kg. The trademark wraparound windshield is essential, but the finish takes on no less than an incredible 30 layers of paint – one of the best mirror finishes in the automotive world.

Get this: it features the most powerful gasoline engine ever attached to a production car, its turbocharged 5.0 litre V8 engine approaches 1195 kW, topping at an eye-watering 447 km/h. On the road, it is recommended you use your big toe to poke at the throttle, anything more will see you doing jail-staying speeds in less than four seconds. Fitted out with a 72 litre fuel tank, it’s one thirsty beast- but we’re guessing its owner won’t be stingy at the servo.

If you wanna make a trip to the shops, the boot up front offers a usable 3.5 cubic feet. Inside is a another story though; there’s space for two people and not much else. Once inside, you’ll appreciate the interior decorating choices of leather, Alcantara, carbon fibre, and aluminum.

Blowing the minds of petrolheads the world over, only 125 will ever be built, selling for over £2,200,000, which is what you’ll pay for a Bugatti Chiron, three McLaren Sennas.
