In 2017, Swedish supercar company Koenigsegg introduced the world’s fastest production car with the Agera RS, beating Bugatti’s Chiron speed record on going from 0 to 250 mph and back to 0.
For the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, the automotive brand takes it a step further by unveiling its all-new megacar, the Koenigsegg Jesko, named after company founder Christian von Koenigsegg’s father, Jesko von Koenigsegg. This Agera RS replacement boasts an upgraded V-8 engine that churns 1600 hp, and an impressive nine-speed transmission with seven clutches that can potentially shatter 300 mph, as the Agera RS clocked a record-breaking 284.55 mph in 2017.
Design-wise, the Jesko bears similarities to the Agera RS with its sleek lines and curvatures that have been improved to better provide advanced aerodynamics. An enlarged, active double-profile rear wing hugs the back, while the front splitter features enlarged, active under-body flaps to maximize or release downforce. In addition, the vehicle boasts a redesigned carbon fiber chassis with more legroom, headroom and greater visibility.
In addition to a slightly larger chassis, a range of luxe materials such as leather, alcantara, carbon fiber and aluminium are some of the elements found in the interior, along with electrically operated seats trimmed in the customer’s choice of upholstery. Other interior amenities include a TFT touchscreen, USB inputs, inductive phone charging, Bluetooth connectivity, automated climate control, “bird’s eye view” parking assistance and more. Furthermore, a new innovation called SmartWheel uses two small touchscreens housed in the Jesko’s steering wheel, for controlling features like audio, phone, ride height, cruise control and more.
