  • I’ve been getting this question a lot and I believe it’s a big part of why people prefer the track version of the Jesko compared to the Absolut. The question funny enough though was “Why are the rear wheels so ugly?” or “why is this car inferior in looks compared to the track version?” Well let me answer that for you! The rear wheels on the Jesko Absolut have a cover in between each spoke for speed purposes. Basically to help the car gain more mph and reduce drag. Good news is that the covers can be taken off and put back on whenever you please to make the rear wheels look exactly like the normal wheels that are used on the Jesko such as the ones in the front of the car. Most people didn’t like the design but they have to understand that EVERYTHING on the car is purposely designed for the sole purpose of breaking the 500KMH / 310MPH + speed record. So some things like the rear bumper being elongated and short rear winglets aka dorsal fins being added compared to the bigger wing on the track Jesko have to be done in order to achieve it’s main goal. In my opinion though I don’t think this design is inferior nor do I think the rear covers look ugly and honestly anything and everything that Koenigsegg puts out is a beauty no questions asked lol.  #koenigsegg #koenigsegg_daily

  • Even though the Gemera is really the most exciting car out of the reveal at the moment. We cannot forget about this beast! The Jesko Absolut. I cannot wit to see what sorts of speeds it will be capable of. ( all information and images are from Koenigsegg So credit goes to them! )

The Jesko Absolut presented a rigorous exercise in smoothing out surfaces on the car to remove any form of drag-causing elements while adding rear volumes that streamline the airflow. Over 3000 hours have been invested in fluid dynamics (CFD) and aerodynamics analysis, alongside over 5000 hours of design and engineering for the Jesko Absolut on top of the Jesko. The CFD team meticulously went over every inch and design detail of the car, defining the elements needed to get to the drag coefficient even lower than the target of 0.28 Cd, to just 0.278 Cd.

Most obvious when looking at the Jesko Absolut, is the removed massive rear wing. The wing is removed to reduce downforce and drag – dropping downforce from 1400 kg to 150 kg.

In place of a rear wing there are two rear hood fins that are designed to enhance the high-speed stability of the Absolut.

Furthermore, the front splitter and side winglets are removed, and the front wheel louvers are replaced with smoother ones. Every surface is analyzed and optimized for the air to glide as effortless as possible over, under and through the body.

The Jesko Absolut shape was reassessed with minimal drag in mind. This meant elongating the car, giving it a more tear-dropped shape. The rear extension of the Jesko Absolut makes it 85 mm longer than the track-focused Jesko and the dished rear wheels, really change its appearance.

Both the Jesko (track-oriented version) and the Jesko Absolut (high-speed version) will be powered by a 1280 bhp (1600 bhp on E85), twin turbo charged V8 engine, featuring the world’s lightest V8 crankshaft that weighs just 12.5 kg. This new flat-plane 180-degree crankshaft produces more power with greater efficiency while achieving a higher 8500 rpm rev limit. The flat-plane design allows even firing across engine banks, creating a visceral engine sound that gives more power.

Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you The Gemera! New cars that seemed impossible to make such as this are the reason why I’m in love with the Koenigsegg brand. Nothing like this has ever been seen or heard of in the automotive industry and will be go on to pave the car world for decades to come!

The Gemera seats four large adults comfortably with space catering to their carry-on luggage, meaning the Koenigsegg megacar experience can be shared with family and friends.

The notion behind Gemera’s name – a combination of the two Swedish words – “ge” (give) and “mera” (more) signifies “to give more”. A suitable name for a car that adds features and functions without taking away anything that makes it a true megacar.

The Gemera is limited to an edition of 300 cars.

With its 1.27 megawatts of power and 3500 Nm of torque, the Gemera goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 1.9 seconds and to 400 km/h in under 20 seconds.

The Gemera come with the most amazing 3 cylinder engine ever. 
The Gemera yields a combined power output of 1700 bhp or 1.27 MW. The three electrical motors – one for each rear wheel and one on the crankshaft of the engine have a combined output of 800 kW or 1100 bhp.

The Gemera’s 2-liter 3-cylinder dry sumped twin-turbo Freevalve engine, named the Tiny Friendly Giant (or TFG for short) adds another 450 kW or 600 bhp.

The Gemera, if plugged in and filled with Gen 2.0 ethanol or CO2 neutral methanol like Vulcanol or any mix thereof, becomes at least as CO2 neutral as a pure electric car. Before these second-generation renewable fuel sources are more accessible, the Gemera can also be driven on E85 and in worst case normal petrol.

Plugged in to go further
Equipped with three electric motors, the Gemera can drive completely silent up to 340 km/h, and the powerful 800V battery offers in itself a range of up to 50 km.

The silence in EV mode disguises the true battle cry of the Gemera. When the TFG is activated and the gas pedal hits the floor the Gemera comes alive with a riotous roar as it disappears into the horizon.
