Last month you could read all about the production version of the Koenigsegg Jesko. Along with the photos and information, Koenigsegg published a walkthrough video from big boss Christian showing all the details. What we had missed then was the last part where Christian von Koenigsegg gives the Jesko jetje. On the Koenigsegg test track, he lets the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 stretch its legs.
Although he says they still have to fine-tune the bike, it gives an excellent impression of the aggression that is being released. With E85 fuel, the V8 should produce 1,600 horsepower. On normal petrol, it gets stuck at 1,280 hp. It’s not entirely clear what fuel is in the engine here, but the power is enough for some spectacle. The brand claims that the so-called LST (Light Speed Transmission) will be the fastest-shifting gearbox in the world.
The big boss drives the ‘normal’ Jesko. There will also be a Jesko Absolute without a huge rear spoiler, which should reach 500+ km/h. Each year 40 to 50 will roll out of the factory. Of course, all copies have already been sold, for prices of at least 2.6 million euros (excluding taxes).
