Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the Koenigsegg Jesko is successor to the Agera. Named after Jesko von Koenigsegg, father of the company’s founder and CEO, this limited-production, mid-engine sports car comes in two versions: ‘Absolut’ for top speed and ‘Attack’ for track performance.

The Jesko Attack redefines track performance, showcasing Koenigsegg’s dedication to pushing the limits of technology and craftsmanship. It features carbon fiber bodywork, a carbon tub, hollow carbon wheels, and carbon-ceramic brakes with in-house designed calipers.

Its luxurious interior, equipped with advanced creature comforts, is more similar to a grand tourer than a track car. The dihedral synchro-helix doors open outwards and upwards, providing unprecedented space. Inside, the cabin is adorned with Alcantara, carbon fiber, aluminum, and glass, and the sport bucket seats are built around a lightweight carbon-fiber shell.

The car comes with a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8. The company worked on the engine to make it more powerful and lighter than any other V8 it has produced. It’ll make 1,600 hp on E85 biofuel and 1,280 on regular gasoline. Torque numbers sit at 1,106 lb-ft. The car comes with a special 9-speed multi-clutch gearbox the company builds in-house.
