NEXT STOP NEW YORK FOR KOENIGSEGG JESKO MEGACAR
Just unveiled in Geneva, Koenigsegg’s all-new megacar – the Koenigsegg Jesko – will make its North American debut at the 2019 New York International Automobile Show next month. 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. The new model is powered by a re-designed twin-turbo V8 engine with a new 180-degree flat-plane crankshaft, new intake, bigger turbos with air injection, and more precise pressure control. 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 8500 rpm rev limit.
Jesko also features a revolutionary new 9-speed Koenigsegg Light Speed Transmission, advanced aerodynamics offering over 1000 kg of downforce, active rear-wheel steering and a re-designed carbon fiber chassis with more legroom, headroom and greater visibility. Jesko is named for Jesko von Koenigsegg, the father of company Founder and CEO, Christian von Koenigsegg.
