It’s alive!

 

Weird sound. Throaty like a muscle car at low revs, sounds like Lamborghini V10 or V12 at higher rpms.

High Gear Quick Review | 2020 Koenigsegg Jesko

Koenigsegg's latest model, the Jesko is aiming to be the first production car to secure the 300mph speed record. A twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 drives the Jesko's rear wheels, providing 1,578bhp and 1,106 lb-ft when running on E85 fuel. The Jesko also utilizes a revolutionary 9-speed, multi-clutch gearbox Koenigsegg dubs the "Light Speed Transmission". This enables extremely fast gear shifts in the tens of milliseconds. Koenigsegg claims that the Jesko is capable of over 300mph, albeit in a lower downforce configuration.

The Jesko is name for Christian von Koenigsegg's father, Jesko von Koenigsegg, who used his life savings to fund the company during a rough time. Jesko was as a successful jockey for decades, and the accents that adorn the very first car match the colors of every outfit worn by jockeys from the Koenigsegg family. 125 Jeskos will be produced, at $3,000,000 each.

I ran several simulations, and they show the car reaching 60 mph in 2.4 seconds and 100 mph in 4.2 sec. The car in the simulation is able to reach slightly over 300mph.

I bet it's 0-300 will be under 10 seconds, or may be just a bit more.

That front splitter... surprised this thing is road legal. Twice as powerful as a Senna. 2.5 mill each.

Imagine if this was available for proper testing like Sport Auto, or even better - for Best Motoring / Hot Version track battles lol

But no, not gonna happen. Ever.

Changed it to mid-engine as engine is in front of the rear axle. At least I think it is.
