There have been a number of new hypercars unveiled at this years Geneva Motor Show but the new Koenigsegg Jesko might end up stealing the show.
The Koenigsegg Jesko is the world’s first hypercar than is capable of 300 miles per hour, the current record is held by the company’s Agera RS at 277 miles per hour.
Jesko von Koenigsegg was a key presence at Koenigsegg Automotive during its formative years. His considerable business acumen helped steer the company through many early challenges. Now retired and in his 80’s, Jesko von Koenigsegg and his wife, Brita, were on-hand at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show to see his namesake vehicle introduced to the world.
At the heart of this newly designed engine is the world’s lightest production 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.
