Watch Koenigsegg Jesko play in the snow

Koenigsegg is not valued about his supercar. Just in time for Easter, the company released a video of Jesco being beaten in the snowy deserts of northern Sweden. The title of the video is “Egg Hour” as a play on both Easter and Eggs in Koenigsegg.

The location was Arjeplog, which Koenigsegg and many other car manufacturers use for cold-weather testing. It also makes a great playground, test tracks carved in the frozen landscape that are perfect for getting a supercar sideway.

Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Jesko replaces the Koenigsegg Agera, and features more extreme technology.

A twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 produces 1,280 hp on regular gasoline or 1,800 hp on E85 fuel, with 1,106 pound-feet of torque. Three fuel injectors per cylinder help generate that power, while a flat-plane crankshaft enables an 8,500-rpm redline.

The engine is called the Koenigsegg Light Speed ​​Transmission, a 9-speed unit with seven clutches that allow the driver to instantly shift between any two gears, the automaker claims.

Koenigsegg has two versions of Jesco. The High-Downforce Jesco Attack has a huge rear wing (pictured here) that helps build up to 3,000 pounds of downforce, Koenigsegg claims. Jesco Absolute prefers top speed over downforce and thus loses the hind wings to pull.

JESCO’s customer delivery is scheduled to begin in 2022, with only 125 vehicles planned. Despite a starting price of $ 3 million, the entire production run has already sold out. Some build slots are usually reserved for dealers, so customers with a bottomless bank account may not miss their opportunity.

Jesko has been gay worldwide, so we’ll probably see one on US streets. Just don’t expect the lucky owner to take their multi-million dollar supercar to play in the snow.
