Koenigsegg Jesko rocks Geneva as the ultimate in Swedish speed

Koenigsegg dropped the mic at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show on Tuesday. The Swedish supercar maker revealed the Koenigsegg Jesko, which replaces the famed Agera supercar with technology and specifications that require a double take.

The Jesko implements a few core improvements over the Agera. Foremost, the 5.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 has been redesigned and makes a maximum of 1,600 horsepower when the tank is full of E85. Using gasoline drops that figure to 1,280 hp, which is still greater than the Agera RS variant’s 1,160 hp. All of the power is sent to a tech-packed 9-speed automatic transmission Koenigsegg calls the Light Speed Transmission, or LST. More on that in a moment.
