    Koenigsegg Jesko (Agera replacement)

    Koenigsegg Jesko (Agera successor)



















    Koenigsegg has finally revealed the replacement of the Agera RS and its name is Jesko, as a tribute to Christian Koenigsegg’s father.


    The new Swedish hypercar is capable of reaching 300mph (482km/h), according to Koenigsegg’s own simulations, thanks to a heavily modified twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 that can produce up to 1,578hp (1,600PS) on E85.


    The two turbochargers are connected directly to a small electric compressor, which drives air to them from a 20-liter air tank (made out of carbon fiber of course). Koenigsegg claims that thanks to this feature, turbo lag is eliminated, providing instant response and massive boost before the exhaust gasses take over in spinning those turbos.


    When running on 95-octane unleaded, Jesko’s beast of an engine produces 1,262hp (1,280PS) but give it some E85 and it will make 1,578hp (1,600PS) and 1,106lb-ft (1,500Nm) of peak torque, with over 737lb-ft available anywhere between 2,700rpm and 6,170rpm.


    Then, there’s the transmission; Koenigsegg calls it the Light Speed Transmission, a nine-speed multiclutch unit designed in-house that doesn’t feature traditional synch rings at all. This allows it to change between any gear at “near light speed”.

    Unlike the more traditional DCTs in the market, Koenigsegg’s LST unit allows direct changes between gears, regardless of that gear’s relationship to the current one. For example, it can shift from 7th to 4th directly -and at lighting speed apparently- without waiting for synchronisation. The whole transmission weighs just 90kg, complete with wet clutches, flywheel, fluids, starter motor and oil pumps, making it far lighter than any DCT gearbox out there.



    The carbon-fiber wheels are Koenigsegg’s lightest yet, with the front 20-inch items weighing 5.9kg each and the rear 21-inch ones at 7.7kg. Koenigsegg claims that thanks to the huge front splitter and the even more enormous boomerang-like rear wing, the Jesko can produce around 800kg of downforce at 155mph, 1,000kg at 171mph and 1,400kg at its top speed. There will be a lower-downforce version in the future, which is the one with the 300mph potential.


    Koenigsegg will produce just 125 Jesko hypercars, with an annual production output of around 40 to 50 examples. Prices are expected to start from $3 million before taxes but then again, you wouldn’t expect it to be cheap, would you?

    Good interview with CvK.

    That new gearbox is extraordinary.(11:40 and 27:40) angel

    And the air box to eliminate turbo lag (14:20) kiss

    This man is a genius!

    The car looked better in person and what a wing Smiley. I got the sense that there is still quite bit of development to be done.

    That wing... no matter how much I look at it I can't figure out if I love it or I hate it.

    You would think that in the 21st century, they would use better cameras for video footage... Smiley

    I recently found a 12 years old smartphone video from an old Nokia phone and it looked better than this one. Smiley

    Which makes me wonder: Was this bad quality intended?! Smiley

    Interesting development when someone spotted a Koenigsegg Gemera on the Chicago lakefront this morning. https://mobile.twitter.com/mandophotos/status/1395700729898315778
