Koenigsegg announced the replacement for its Agera RS at the Geneva Motor Show by unveiling the Jesko. Named after Christian von Koenigsegg's father, the car continues to push the boundaries of automotive engineering.

The heart of the Jesko is a twin-turbocharged V8 that produces 1,280hp on regular fuel and 1,600hp on E85 biofuel. A 8,5000 rev RPM can be achieved with the world's lightest V8 crankshaft on a car that only weighs 3,130 pounds. Koenigsegg's second in-house built transmission, an all-new 9-speed, multi-clutch, is called the Light Speed Transmission (LST) for its simultaneous up and down shifts and a max torque of 1106 ft-lb.

Only 125 units of the Jesko will be built and nearly all have been spoken for, even with the $3 million USD starting price tag. To learn more, visit koenigsegg.com.
