2020 Koenigsegg Jesko

2020 Koenigsegg Jesko

It could be the world’s first 300-mph production car!

The Koenigsegg Jesko is the company’s latest supercar, third megacar, and spiritual successor to the iconic Agera. Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the Jesko boasts a power-to-weight ratio greater than 1:1, which means its engine generates more horsepower than the car’s total curb weight in kilograms. Koenigsegg offered similar versions of the One:1 and Agera, but the Jesko takes things one step further with an impressive downforce rating of 2,205 pounds.

Named after Jesko von Koenigsegg, the father of company founder and CEO, Christian von Koenigsegg, the Jesko marks the debut of the firm’s latest carbon-fiber chassis and nine-speed multi-clutch transmission. It’s also supposed to hit at least 300 mph according to Koenigsegg, so it could improve the Agera RS’ 277-mph world record really soon. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

With that said, the YouTube channel AutoTopNL is giving us a short, but epic video of the Porsche Carrera GT hitting over 186 mph (300 km/h).

This is Probably The Strangest Toyota MR2 You've Ever Seen

This is Probably The Strangest Toyota MR2 You’ve Ever Seen

Is this rare, mid-engine, Japanese sports car worth the asking price?

There aren’t many cars that offer a mid-engine layout at an affordable price. The Toyota MR2 is one of the last to do so, despite the last generation (1999-2007) lacking the previous one’s Ferrari-inspired design language. Motor1 recently covered a VM180 Zagato – one of only 100 made – that was auctioned off in Japan. No, we are acquainting you with another rare version – the MR2 Caserta by Modellista – of which 150 were made, and now, one is listed for sale at Eclection Specialty Auto Sales.

That Time When Mazda Teased Us With Modern Version Of The 1967 Cosmo But Didn't Make It

That Time When Mazda Teased Us With Modern Version Of The 1967 Cosmo But Didn’t Make It

This retro-inspired Cosmo 21 is a rotary-powered Roadster based on the Mazda Miata NB

The idea of a new car that looks like a classic is not a new one, as many carmakers and design studios have been romanticizing it for a long time. However, it became most obvious around the early 2000s, with cars like the muscle car trio – the Mustang, Camaro, Challenger, and cars like the Mini Cooper and Fiat 500, only to name a few. That said, while many of these concepts went into production, others did not. Such is the case with the 2002 Mazda Cosmo 21, which took the Miata NB and turned it into a faithful representation of the first Mazda to use a Wankel (rotary) engine.

Car For Sale: Unique 1959 Maserati 3500 GT By Frua

Car For Sale: Unique 1959 Maserati 3500 GT By Frua

This was Frua’s take at the 3500 GT and Maserati didn’t like it but we do

The Maserati 3500 GT is, arguably, Maserati’s first stab at building a mass-market grand tourer that could challenge both Ferrari as well as its British peers. Many coachbuilders submitted designs to Maserati before the 3500 GT was put into series production and Pietro Frua came forth with proposals for both a fixed-head coupe as well as a convertible.

This very car was his idea of a topless 3500 GT and it is unique because, as it happened, Maserati chose Vignale’s design instead. The car is back on the auction block after previously being among the headliners at Monterey in 2017.
