THE 1600 HP KOENIGSEGG JESKO REACHES PRE-PRODUCTION
When it comes to the world of the hypercar, one of the world’s favourite brands is that of the Swedish outfit Koenigsegg. While larger automakers do their thing with budgets equalling the GDP of some small countries, the Koenigsegg company is a small, independent concern that’s run by a man who is clearly a genius. Christian von Koenigsegg has a brilliant mind, evident in the way that he’s managed to basically reinvent the wheel, or at least many other automotive components. When some independent companies start to manufacture their own line of engines they follow the tried and tested methods using the same valvetrains and such, but with their own twist. At Koenigsegg these kinds of things have been replaced with their own new technology like the Free Valve that eliminates the need for camshafts, which when all bolted together makes for ridiculously powerful and responsive engines.
The pre-production Jesko Attack that was first seen in the middle of 2021 now has a friend to play with at the Koenigsegg test facility in the form of this stunning new, completed, factory test car - the Graphite Grey Jesko Absolut, complete with Tang Orange stripes making it an all-time fav for this SXdrv writer! Hot damn! “The Absolut feels very natural to drive. Because of its seamless shifting, whether up or down, everything just happens much faster. There are no delays, it is very responsive and behaves exactly the way you would want it to,” comments Koenigsegg test driver Markus Lundh.
“We spent thousands of hours in CFD calculations. We’ve streamlined this car from not just an aerodynamic and design perspective, but also from a high-speed stability perspective. As a result, the Jesko Absolut has a phenomenally low drag of only 0.278 Cd.” says CEO and Founder Christian von Koenigsegg. This new Graphite Grey Jesko Absolut now has the title of ‘Official factory testing vehicle’, and will be leading the development program for the Jesko Absolut.
Take a look at the YouTube video showing a full walk through of the amazingly fast and technologically advanced pre-production version of the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut, by none other than Koenigsegg main man Christian von Koenigsegg.
