Koenigsegg Jesko made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. It has 1600 hp and is able to reach 300 mph.
After years of waiting we finally got a completely new model from Koenigsegg. The car just presented at the Geneva Motor Show is the direct successor of Agera RS, once the fastest car in the world.
The car is a tribute from Christian von Koenigsegg to his father Jesko von Koenigsegg. The name of the car was kept secret until the press conference at the Geneva Motor Show. As Christian said, his father was the key to the creation of the company and was a great support for him.
The Koenigsegg Jesko is equipped with the well-known 5-litre V8. This is the engine used by other models, but it has now undergone a number of modifications, generating up to 1600 hp. An interesting feature is the use of a special 20-litre air tank, which is directly connected to the turbochargers, thanks to which the turbolag has been eliminated and the efficiency has been increased.
According to the Swedish manufacturer, the car can speed up to 300 miles per hour (482 km/h).
