Whenever people think of the speedy cars, they imagine about Ferrari, Buggatti, McLaren and other sports cars. But the Koenigsegg Jesko is surprisingly speedy. Recently at Geneva Motor show, the new Koenigsegg Jesko named after the company founder’s father, has claimed the world’s first road-legal 300 mph car. That top speed translates to more than 480 kilometers per hour
The company has stated that they are just producing the 125 new Koenigsegg Jesko units. And it will give the users a choice to select between the 300 mph range and other variants.
The Koenigsegg Jesko
While talking about the engine, the engine of Koenigsegg Jesko is re modified than the engine of an Agera’s 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8. Te Jesko has more improved 5.0 liter with 180 degree crankshaft. While the earlier was has 90 degree angle engine. The 180 degree crankshaft allows it to rev to 8,500rpm and “changes the exhaust note quite a bit,” says the Company’s CEO.
The result is 1,262bhp running on 95 octane unleaded, and 1,578bhp and 1106lb ft of torque if you fill it with E85 befoul. Other than this speedy car version, Koenigsegg also added that this sister car has “smaller splitters and smaller wings,” presumably to shave off more weight on a hypercar that already weighs just 1,420 kilos (3,130 pounds) when it’s properly filled up.
Coming to the design and style, the design is not much elegant. It has a utmost peacock mode the front bonnet, doors and rear clamshell can all be opened on hydraulic struts at the touch of a button.
Inside car, it has got the climate control, an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, USB sockets and wireless charging for your phone. The New Koenigsegg Jesko has a screen attached to the wheel that displays all relevant information. That’s not the only Koenigsegg quirk, either, an optional analogue G-Force meter perches on top of the dash, behind the wheel.
