Koenigsegg Jesko — 2019
At the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg CEO and founder Christian von Koenigsegg surprised his father by naming the brand’s newest vehicle after him. The Jesko’s carbon-fiber monocoque chassis is slightly longer and taller than the Agera, which provides a roomier cabin. Styling is clearly Koenigsegg with a massive rear spoiler instantly drawing the eye. The Jesko draws power from a redesigned 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 1280 horses on standard gasoline; when fueled by E85 biofuel, the power rating jumps to an incredible and incredulous 1600 horses. The Jesko has an all-new 9-speed “Light Speed Transmission” designed in-house that allows for practically instant gear changes from any gear to any gear. Only 125 Jeskos will be sold, and at the time of the reveal more than 80 had been spoken for.
