Extremer: the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut

In addition to the delightful Koenigsegg Gemera, the Swedes have more extreme news in store for us. Koenigsegg in fact presents the fastest car that the brand has ever built. This is the Jesko Absolut.

For everyone who starts ringing a bell when they see the plates: that is not surprising! The Jesko Absolut is in fact a further development of the Koenigsegg Jesko unleashed last year. However, that version is more of a circuit tiger, while this Absolut promises to be more of a car built in series. At the Jesko Absolut, Koenigsegg mainly started working on air resistance. With success, because the air resistance coefficient of the extremist is 0.298. A number of adjustments to the coach have been made for this. The two standing double fins that replace the immense rear spoiler stand out the most.

Furthermore, the Absolut distinguishes itself from the “normal” Jesko with an extended tailgate, denser rear wheels, a lowered carriage and removed grilles at the front wheels. The bonnet gets an extra closed piece to let the air flow better. All adjustments ensure that the maximum 1,600 horsepower (on E85) strong car has a higher speed stability. Those 1,600 horsepower are taken from a 5.0-liter biturbo V8. However, Koenigsegg does not yet know how quickly it has become. To make the car a little more comfortable, the suspension is a little softer.
