Koenigsegg Jesko

The Koenigsegg Jesko is a hand-built, carbon-fiber-bodied supercar. Two versions will be offered, the Jesko Attack and the Jesko Absolut. Powering both is a 5.1-liter, twin-turbo V-8 designed and engineered by Koenigsegg. It features a flat-plane crankshaft milled from a solid steel billet. The crank weighs 28 pounds and allows the V-8 to rev to 8,500 rpm. All that means 1,600 hp at 7,500 rpm on E85 biofuel, and 1,280 hp on pump gas. Peak torque output is 1,106 lb-ft at 5,100 rpm.
The engine is connected to the Koenigsegg-developed and produced nine-speed Light Speed Transmission (LST) system that enables gear changes in virtually zero time from any gear to any other gear – regardless of how many gears are skipped.
Assembly will be capped at 125 units, with 40 to 50 being made each year with deliveries starting this spring. Price for the land rocket is something around $3m.
