When Christian von Koenigsegg designs a car named after his father, Jesko, he doesn’t hold back. The Jesko, the successor to the Agera RS, is a track-focused, road-legal car with big numbers. The re-designed 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine produces 1,280hp on standard gasoline and 1,600hp on E85 biofuel, while the advanced aerodynamics package offers more than 1,000kg of downforce. The dynamics package is enhanced through the active rear-wheel steering, the re-designed carbon fiber monocoque chassis, and fully adjustable Öhlins dampers
