A New Heart

Comfort & Convenience

Koenigsegg has unveiled an all-new megacar – the Koenigsegg Jesko – at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. Jesko inherits the mantle left by the Agera RS as the leading track-focused, road-legal car for those looking for the ultimate in vehicle performance.

Overview

Koenigsegg’s first effort at engine development was so successful it saw the company awarded a Guinness World Record. The Koenigsegg CC8S replaced the McLaren F1 as the car with the most powerful production engine in the world. The next Koenigsegg engine achieved a similar feat when the CCR took the world production car top speed record, again from the McLaren F1. In 2014, we announced the Koenigsegg One:1 with a twin-turbo V8 producing 1,360 hp, enough to make the One:1 the first production car in history with a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. With 1 megawatt of power, the One:1 was the world’s first Megacar. At the core of the newly designed engine is the world’s lightest V8 crankshaft. Weighing just 12.5 kilos, Koenigsegg’s new flat-plane 180-degree crankshaft allows Jesko to produce more power, with greater efficiency, while achieving a higher 8500rpm rev limit.

Transmission

The Koenigsegg Jesko features an all-new 9-speed, multi-clutch transmission – the second transmission to be 100% designed and built in-house at Koenigsegg, following the Direct Drive system designed for the Regera. The Koenigsegg Light Speed Transmission (LST) represents a scale of evolution not seen since the development of modern dual-clutch technology at the turn of the century. LST comprises nine forward gears and seven wet, multidisc clutches in a compact, ultra-light package. The LST is capable of upward and downward gear changes between gears at near light speed thanks to the simultaneous opening and closing of clutches that allows for totally seamless acceleration/deceleration.

Suspension

The Koenigsegg Jesko was designed as the ultimate road-friendly track car. As such, we’ve re-engineered what was already a class-leading chassis, equipping it with a host of new technologies to make driving easier around town and much faster on the circuit. At the core of every Koenigsegg is its carbon fibre monocoque. Jesko uses an all-new monocoque, designed with the experience of vehicles past but with the requirements of our future customers in mind. The new tub is 40mm longer and 22mm higher, which allows for more legroom, headroom, a more spacious cabin feel and a clearer view through the wrap-around windscreen.
