The Koenigsegg Jesko is motivated by a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 generating 1280 horsepower and 1106 lb-ft of torque on pump gas. On E85, output jumps to 1600 horsepower. Koenigsegg claims that the engine features the world’s lightest V-8 crankshaft. Weighing in at a mere 28 pounds, the crankshaft is crafted from a single solid-steel billet, and its flat-plane layout facilitates even firing across engine banks. This design also sets the stage for a rich, memorable engine note. This Swedish hypercar comes with an innovative nine-speed gearbox referred to as the Light Speed Transmission (LST). Built by Koenigsegg, the LST features a multiclutch design that, according to the company, provides quicker gearshifts compared with a dual-clutch. All models come with a rear-wheel-steering system that heightens performance. At high speeds, this system turns the rear wheels in the same direction as the fronts to improve cornering and boost stability. At low speeds, it orients the back wheels in the opposite direction as the fronts to give the car a faster turn-in. Relative to the Agera RS, the Jesko offers a 40 percent increase in downforce. Koenigsegg says that the Jesko can produce 1764 pounds of downforce at 155 mph and as much as 3086 pounds at higher speeds. That’s almost as much as the car’s claimed 3131-pound curb weight.
Taking this Koenigsegg Jesko to the next level we had it fitted with our Brixton Forged CM6-RS Series wheel finished in Firecracker Black (Gloss).
