Exclusive: Koenigsegg Jesko “300 Edition” with 314 MPH Top Speed on cards
The Koenigsegg Jesko was recently unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Internally known as the Ragnarok, the Jesko replaces the Agera in the Swedish supercar maker’s line up. Well, we now have some exclusive information that suggests Koenigsegg is planning a more exclusive version of the Jesko. Our sources tell us that it might be called “300 Edition” but it may not be its final name.
So, what makes this special edition so special?
They say that the Jesko is capable of reaching a top speed of 300 mph. We have been told that the special edition model will hit a top speed of 314 mph – That’s 505 km/h! The same has apparently been tested in the simulator. Of course, finding a straight enough road to achieve that sort of speed will be quite difficult.
According to our sources, the special edition will have a slightly different exterior and a more “discreet rear wing”. The Light Speed Transmission (LST) is also likely to be tweaked, perhaps with different ratios for a higher top speed. The car has been described as a grand tourer that would offer a more pliant ride compared to the “Track” version.
The Jesko “300 Edition” is expected to be more expensive than the “Track” version, which will start at just under $3 million. Moreover, production is likely to be limited to around 30-40 units, however there is uncertainly surrounding the exact number.
Across the pond, the Hennessey Venom F5 will be shooting for 311 mph. Now, the only question is, who will get there first?
