We first noticed the Koenigsegg Jesko on the 2019 Geneva Auto Present. There, the alternative of the Agera RS, the present world’s quickest manufacturing highway automobile, gathered fairly the group, not least due to the Swedish automaker’s insane efficiency claims: that the Jesko places out 1,578 horses on E85 biofuel or low-downforce model may attain 300 mph. Quickly, although, we might even see the Jesko do different issues that the Agera RS by no means dreamt of doing moreover touring at 300 mph, reminiscent of going to the races. What races? Those within the World Endurance Championship.
The Koenigsegg Jesko, a limited-run hypercar that might reset our requirements for what’s quick and what’s outrageously quick, is merely the newest proof that Christian Von Koenigsegg and his motley crew means enterprise. The Swedes thought that having a automobile of their steady that might do 278 mph on a public highway (not on a gimmicky oval like Nardo) isn’t sufficient and, as such, the Jesko betters the Agera RS in virtually all conceivable methods. It’s so unbelievable that if Koenigsegg does determine to show it right into a racing automobile, it received’t race with the likes of the Ferrari 488 GTB, the Aston Martin Vantage, the Chevy Corvette and all the different GTs, as a substitute gunning for the general honors courtesy of the brand new Prototype Hypercar guidelines that can come into impact in 2020.
