Take a Nice Tour of the Koenigsegg Jesko Before Seeing It Exercise Its Grunt

Take a Nice Tour of the Koenigsegg Jesko Before Seeing It Exercise Its Grunt

Christian von Koenigsegg gives us a detailed look into the pre-production Koenigsegg Jesko

Hypercars are at the top of the automotive food chain. They have the best drivetrains, the most advanced tech, and are the most capable. The Koenigsegg Jesko is one of the latest and best examples of that. And although most of us will not be able to afford one, we can at least watch in awe as Koenigsegg founder and CEO, Christian von Koenigsegg, gives us a tour around the pre-production Jesko before engaging in some spirited driving.

Tang Orange Pearl Is The Right Color For the Koenigsegg Jesko

Tang Orange Pearl Is The Right Color For the Koenigsegg Jesko

This pre-production Koenigsegg Jesko scores a unique orange Finish that pays tribute to the CCR

I think we can all agree that certain cars are made for a certain color. When it comes to super-fast high-performance machines, there are usually two ways to go about it. Either go for a dark and sinister look (think of the Koenigsegg Thor and Vader models of the Agera) or you can go with a very bright, visible from 10 miles, exterior finish, which is exactly the case here. What we are looking at is a rare pre-production version of the Koenigsegg Jesko, finished in Tang Orange Pearl, with silver and carbon-fiber elements. This is actually a homage to the Koenigsegg CCR, which back in 2004, featured the exact same color scheme.

This In-Depth Video of the Koenigsegg Agera is a Must-See

Koenigsegg doesn’t become Koenigsegg without this supercar

Koenigsegg is regarded as one of the most revolutionary automakers in the industry. Take the Koenigsegg Agera, for example. Introduced a decade ago, the Agera was, in many ways, a revolutionary supercar that helped Koenigsegg transition from being a niche automaker to a globally renowned automotive purveyor of hellacious speed and performance.

The latest episode of YouTube channel Mr.JWW shines a light on the supercar that made Koenigsegg a household name.

It's Not Very Often That You Get to See a $6 Million Koenigsegg Agera RS Naraya On the Track

It’s Not Very Often That You Get to See a $6 Million Koenigsegg Agera RS Naraya On the Track

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more grandiose Agera RS

Coming from a line of Koenigsegg Agera RS models is the one-off Agera RS Naraya. Built to the specs of the owner who commissioned it, the Agera RS Nayara is a work of art on four wheels. It comes with exclusive details that you won’t find on any other Agera RS. That’s an incredible distinction knowing that there Koenigsegg only built 25 examples of the Agera RS. The Koenigsegg Agera RS Naraya is literally a one-of-one.

 Here's How The Revolutionary 600hp 3-Cylinder Engine Of The Koenigsegg Gemera Works

Here’s How The Revolutionary 600hp 3-Cylinder Engine Of The Koenigsegg Gemera Works

Koenigsegg is a revolutionary automaker that has been pushing the threshold of engineering with every new car of theirs. Be it the Koenigsegg CCR that humbled the legendary McLaren F1 or the Koenigsegg One:1, the world’s first megacar that had an impressive power to weight ratio of 1:1. The future also looks quite thrilling with the Koenigsegg Jesko, a 1,600-horsepower machine that has the making to surpass the 300 mph mark!

Revolutionary engineering technologies have been at the forefront for Koenigsegg. Their latest ground-breaking feat comes in an ironically small package and is aptly named the Tiny Friendly Giant - the world’s most powerful 2.0-liter three-cylinder engine with 1700 horsepower and a monstrous 2,581 lb-ft of torque. This engine uses the magical Freevalve technology which makes all of these mind-boggling numbers possible and comes packed in the Koenigsegg Gemera - their very first megacar with four seats.

Koenigsegg Sends Valentine’s Day Greeting in the Most Koenigsegg Way Imaginable

There’s nothing more beautiful than seeing a $1.9 million hypercar having some fun in the snow

Koenigsegg is celebrating Valentine’s Day in style. The hypercar purveyor rolled out the mighty Regera on a snow-covered airstrip at its factory in Angelholm, Sweden for some recreational fun. Rare is the day when you see Koenigsegg’s $1.9 million hypercar let its hair down. But it’s the day of love, and Koenigsegg wants to celebrate it with all of us through this video of the Regera that’s having the time of its life in the snow.

Crash Testing a Koenigsegg is Expensive, So The Company Has a Novel Solution

Crash Testing a Koenigsegg is Expensive, So The Company Has a Novel Solution

Can you imagine throwing away a $2 million car?

Every automaker that builds road-going cars has to comply with the same safety standards in every market their vehicles are sold in. That means that even small companies like Koenigsegg must meet the same standards as mass-production companies like Chevrolet, Ford, Mercedes, and the like. Well, for these massive companies, crashing 10 $30,000 dollar cars isn’t a big deal – it’s relatively cheap in the grand scheme of things, and it doesn’t hurt inventory numbers in any way, shape or form. Most companies even allocate a certain number of vehicles to crash testing. For Koenigsegg, though, the company only builds a handful of cars and the process is nowhere near as simple as it is for Chevy to build a Cruze of Mercedes to build an A-Class – everything is custom, everything is expensive, and crash testing even one model could be a very expensive, even disrupting ordeal to the company. But, the solution is really a simple one – Koenigsegg crash tests the same car over and over again.

Every Koenigsegg Regera Goes Through A 0-186 MPH Test Before Being Delivered

Every Koenigsegg Regera Goes Through A 0-186 MPH Test Before Being Delivered

Special cars deserve special quality control care

Every automaker that’s worth its name has a quality control procedure that needs to be followed before its products head to their respective owners. For some, these quality control procedures involve checking the engine, the interior, and the car’s electronics system. But for an automaker like Koenigsegg, quality control procedures take on different forms.

The Swedish automaker even has a particularly specific procedure it does to the Regera supercar before it’s delivered to its excited owner. According to the company, ever Regera — that’s 80 of them — is required to do a 0-to-186 mph sprint test before it leaves the care of the automaker. It sounds ridiculous for a car to undergo a speed test of that magnitude before it’s delivered to a customer, but remember, this is the Regera we’re talking about.

2021 Koenigsegg Agera RS Refinement

2021 Koenigsegg Agera RS Refinement

Koenigsegg’s aftermarket team can further upgrade the already stunning Agera RS

The 2020 Koenigsegg Agera RS Refinement is a unique version of the Agera RS, a supercar that the Swedish carmaker produced from 2011 to 2018 in just 25 units. The Agera RS Refinement is not a brand-new model, but a 2017-model-year car that has been touched by Koenigsegg’s aftermarket team. It all began with a customer car brought in to have a couple of air vents from the One:1 installed in the front hood, but the owner eventually opted for a few more mods, resulting in a completely unique Agera RS. What makes it special? Let’s find out in the review below.

Koenigsegg's Just Proved How Important Having The Fastest Car in the World Is To Brands

Koenigsegg’s Just Proved How Important Having The Fastest Car in the World Is To Brands

The fastest production car in the world title is more than just a pissing contest

The fastest production car in the world title is a funny thing. On the one hand, it’s nothing more than a vanity record, or a “legacy record,” as some would put it. It’s not something that regular car owners can do or even experience because of all the preparations — and dangers — that come in trying to set the record. On the other hand, it is a tangible record. The Guinness Book of World Records recognizes it as a legitimate world record.

Naturally, there’s a lot of competition among the small group of automakers with cars that can lay claim to the record. The level of competition is fierce, folks. One car sets the record and, just as quickly, everyone tries to dissect the legitimacy of a record-setting run.

Take Koenigsegg, for example. The Agera RS currently holds the official record of the fastest production car in the world, but that hasn’t stopped rivals like Bugatti and Hennessey from claiming the record, even if the requirements to satisfy the validity of such a record aren’t met. Now you can throw SSC North America into that mix after its supercar, the Tuatara, supposedly setting an average top speed run of 331 mph. Now, it’s one thing to set a record, but it’s another thing to set a record that everyone recognizes. Koenigsegg didn’t take too kindly to the SSC Tuatara’s record-breaking top speed, proving yet again how important this “title” is to everyone who wants to claim it.

Koenigsegg Wants You To Remember That the Agera RS Still Holds The Top Speed Record

Koenigsegg Wants You To Remember That the Agera RS Still Holds The Top Speed Record

The Koenigsegg Agera RS is still the king of the road

On October 2020, SSC announced that it has set a new top speed record for production cars with the Tuatara, which hit an average 316 mph on a road in Nevada. But a few famous YouTubers revealed that the official video actually shows a slower speed than SSC’s telemetry system and the American company announced that it will redo its run with better footage. As result, the Koenigsegg Agera RS remains the world’s fastest production car and the Swedish carmaker was quick to brag about it record still standing after three years.

Get Inside the Koenigsegg CCR - The Car That Humbled the Legendary McLaren F1

Get Inside the Koenigsegg CCR - The Car That Humbled the Legendary McLaren F1

This Swedish supercar is finally getting the love and recognition it richly deserves

When talking about the greatest supercars of the last 30 years, most people identify models like the McLaren F1, Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, and Ferrari Enzo. These exotics deserve their roses, for sure, one supercar, in particular, that doesn’t get the love it deserves is the Koenigsegg CCR. It’s easy to see why. The CCR was in production for all of two years — 2004 to 2006 — and the Swedish automaker only made 14 units of the model. There aren’t a lot of them to begin with, and the units that are still around are usually tucked away in some billionaire’s garage, away from public view. Make no mistake, though. The Koenigsegg CCR was a record-breaking monster that took down the almighty F1 as the fastest production car in the world. If that’s part of your résumé, you deserve to be recognized for it, and while it might be a little too late for some, YouTube channel Mr. JWW is shining a well overdue spotlight on one of the century’s greatest supercars.

If You Think Making a Koenigsegg Road Legal Is Easy, Think Again!

This is the biggest hurdle you must pass if you dream of establishing your own supercar-making company

Koenigsegg, the Swedish motley crew responsible for some of the world’s fastest road-legal hypercars, is at the forefront of automotive development with its Regera plug-in hybrid and the 240+ mph Jesko that features a nine-speed, seven-clutch transmission. While all this tech took time and a lot of money to develop, the bulk of Koenigsegg’s resources are actually spent during the homologation process and here’s why.

Watch the Koenigsegg Regera Twist Its Wheels Up to 186 MPH With Ease

The Regera is so fast fast it almost looks cartoonish

Koenigsegg’s Regera is a hybrid. A 1,480-horsepower hybrid that’s torturing its tires with over 1,475 pound-feet of torque. Hiding a 5.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 as well as three electric motors, the Regera is a car so mind-numbingly fast we’d wish Christian von Koenigsegg was tasked with conceiving all of the world’s hybrids.

Christian von Koenigsegg Demonstrates That Supercars Can Be Practical, Too

Or better said, the Koenigsegg Gemera is practical

What’s the first thing you look at whenever a new hypercar is presented? Torque? Horsepower? The kind of engine/drivetrain it offers? Maybe what sort of wicked aerodynamic setups it flaunts? All of the above? Regardless of your answer, practicality is the last thing one cares about or expects from such a vehicle. Somehow, Koenigsegg’s Gemera made a selling point out of it.

It’s hard to ignore Christian von Koenigsegg’s brilliance when it comes to developing supercars. And while Koenigsegg’s more recent offerings such as the Gemera and Jesko Absolut are just enough to blow your mind, one of the brand’s most popular models, although now considered ’old’, still manages to impress.

No, not by violent 0-60 mph sprints or brake-disc-melting decelerations, but by the way it stays glued to the ground and stable when mishandled.

Believe it or not, it actually has a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio

The digital concept that you see here wasn’t exactly commissioned by Koenigsegg, and there’s a good chance that it won’t find it’s way to production, but it was designed under the supervision of Sasha Selipanov and Christian von Koenigsegg as a graduation thesis for Finnish design Ea Mustonen. It’s called the Koenigsegg Raw, features a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio, and could represent an entry-level model in the lineup should it manage to be green-lit for production.

Prepare to be impressed

We’re back on the topic of Koenigsegg’s radically-looking Jesko Absolut. With all the specs out of the bag, here’s still something we don’t know about the Absolut. And that something is its top speed.

When Koenigsegg dropped the Jesko Absolut online, it was clear about one thing: the Absolut would be the carmaker’s fastest supercar ever as the company “will never endeavor to make a faster series-production road car – ever.” Alright, but just how fast is the new Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut? Well, Koenigsegg’s estimates say 330 mph is theoretically possible, and now here comes Engineering Explained to clear the air for us.

The blackest of all blacks finds its way on the fastest Koenigsegg ever built

We are not going to lie, back when BMW unveiled the X6 Vantablack, we fronwed. Like, a lot. Luckily, that color wasn’t going to be used on road-going cars, at least not as body paint.

It turns out, however, that the Koenigseg Jesko Absolut, the Swedish carmaker’s fastest hypercar ever, features the blackest of all blacks in two very obvious places.
