The Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut was unveiled during an Online Event from Geneva in March 2020. The Koenigsegg Jesko is a limited production mid-engine sports car produced by Swedish automobile manufacturer Koenigsegg. It is the fastest Koenigsegg ever made and the company will never endeavor to make a faster series-production road car – ever. Customers will be able to choose between the Jesko Absolut and the more track-oriented Jesko version that was presented in 2019. The Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut has a drag coefficient value of only 0.278 Cd. The low drag in combination with a frontal area of 1.88 m2 in combination with a power level of minimum 1600 bhp, make the Jesko Absolut destined to achieve higher, more extraordinary speeds than any Koenigsegg or any other fully homologated car before it. Every surface element on the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut has been purposefully constructed to reduce drag or surrounding turbulence around the car while increasing high-speed stability.
Ultimate Power On Demand (UPOD) – a predictive gear-change technology that ensures instant, prolific power and always available in the correct gear for maximum acceleration, is part of the control strategy for LST. At the heart of the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut is the 1600 bhp (when running on E85 fuel), twin-turbocharged V8 engine fitted with a 180-degree crankshaft that enables an 8500-rpm rev limit. The engine is connected to the Koenigsegg-developed and produced nine-speed Light Speed Transmission (LST) system that enables gear changes in virtually zero time from any gear to any other gear – regardless of how many gears are skipped. The Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut has an extended rear hood, covered rear wheels, lowered ride height, and removed front wheel louvres and front hood closed air duct – compared to the track focused Jesko. All these adjustments are made to reduce drag and downforce; resulting in super high-speed stability, modest tire-friendly downforce and a very low drag coefficient of only 0.278 Cd.
The engine is mated to an in-house developed 9-speed multi-clutch transmission called the “Light Speed Transmission (LST)” by the manufacturer. The transmission has a shift time ranging from 20 to 30 milliseconds.The new transmission has a weight of 90 kg (198 lb) and it is at least 50% shorter in length than the previous 7-speed dual-clutch unit. It has 9 forward gear combinations using a layout with an input shaft with 3 fixed gears which is mated to a secondary shaft with 3 gears fixed to the output shaft and 3 clutched gears mated to the input shaft and an output shaft with 4 clutched gears (one set is used for reverse which mates directly to the input shaft), allowing the transmission to change gears without an interruption in power delivery due to the speedy nature of clutch actuation and overlap between the clutches opening and closing. The engine’s crankshaft is mated directly to the LST and uses the rotating mass of the transmission components in place of a traditional flywheel.
The car comes standard with forged aluminium centre lock wheels, with diameters of 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the rear. Lighter carbon fibre wheels are available as an option, weighing 5.9 kg (13 lb) at the front and 7.7 kg (17 lb) at the rear. The tyres are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2’s with codes of 265/35 20 for the front and 345/30 21 for the rear.Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tyres dedicated for track driving are also available as an option. The braking system uses ventilated carbon-ceramic discs. Unlike its predecessors, the high-downforce Attack variant of the Jesko has Koenigsegg’s ‘Triplex’ dampers at the front and the rear combined with traditional Öhlins dampers. A horizontal rear damper prevents the rear from pressing on the ground during hard acceleration. The carbon body tub used in the Jesko is 40 mm (2 in) longer and 22 mm (1 in) wider from that of its predecessor in order for more passenger room. The tub has been redesigned and incorporates an aluminium monocoque structure for increased rigidity.
