Koenigsegg has revealed the Agera successor at the Geneva Motor Show 2019. Named Jesko after Christian’s father, the new hypercar is built around a re-designed twin-turbocharged V8 engine. It gets a new 180 degree flat-plane crankshaft, intake and larger turbochargers. Flat-plane crankshafts normally suffer from increased vibration which Koenigsegg have addressed with active engine mounts lifted from the Agera. An innovative air-injection system pre-spools the turbocharger for instant response.
Here is a quick look at the specs:
Engine: 5.0L V8 Twin-Turbo
Output: 1280hp or 1600hp on E85 and 1500 Nm torque
Gearbox: 9-speed Koenigsegg Light Speed Transmission (LST)
Rev Limit: 8,500rpm
Downforce: 1000 kg at 275 km/h
Curb Weight: 1420kg
Top Speed: 300mph est.
