A tour of the Koenigsegg Jesko


Enjoy a full walkthrough of the Jesko with Christian von Koenigsegg. With 1,281hp and a kerb weight of 1,420kg (3,131 lb), there is no doubting the car’s speed, and it has a dynamic setup to match. Underneath the body is a carbon body tub incorporating an aluminium monocoque structure. The high-downforce variant has proprietary ‘Triplex’ dampers at the front and the rear, combined with Öhlins dampers, while a horizontal rear damper prevents the rear from hitting the ground during hard acceleration. The front dampers stabilise the car at high speeds, while active rear wheel steering further aids stability
