With the ambition of conquering the records and creating new segments in the world hypercar village, Koenigsegg launched the world Gemera – the first four-seater hypercar and the Jesko Absolut variant of Koenigsegg Jesko with the aim of conquering and overthrowing. Speed record that Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ has just achieved.
Not only launched with the two missions mentioned above, Koenigsegg Gemera and Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut also bring new and advanced technologies and help push the supercar and car industry forward. Koenigsegg recently brought the two cars to the airport right behind the factory, where the company uses it to test speeds and pick up visitors by private jets to create a beautiful photo set. In addition, the photo shoot featured a prototype Koenigsegg Jesko being used as a development vehicle.
Similar to the previous Koenigsegg Jesko, the newly launched Absolut variant will still be equipped with a 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine with a flat crankshaft, producing 1,280 horsepower and up to 1,000 Nm of torque when used. use conventional gasoline fuel. If using E85 organic fuel, the car’s capacity can be increased to 1,600 hp and torque up to 1,500 Nm.
Power is transmitted to the rear wheels through a new 9-speed Lightspeed gearbox of Koenigsegg. This gearbox uses new technology with a total of eight clutches and eight different transmission axes, providing instant shifting without having to be in the order of the gear. This gearbox only weighs 90 kg but can control up to 1,600 Nm of torque.
To make Jesko Absolut as fast as possible, Koenigsegg had to design, change some details to reduce the drag coefficient to only 0.278 cd. To achieve that, engineers from Koenigsegg’s team spent 3,000 hours analyzing the aerodynamics inside the CFD wind tunnel. The team also spent 5,000 hours extra to design and build the vehicle.
As a result of this, the pressure exerted when Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut exerted at high speed decreased from 1,400 kg to 150 kg. Large spoiler is removed, instead two small fins increase stability when the car is moving at high speed. The bodywork is also made larger and stretched 85 mm longer than the Koenigsegg Jesko. These upgrades are expected by Koenigsegg to help the car reach more than 500 km / h and break Bugatti’s record.
When ordering Koenigsegg Jesko, customers can choose from two regular Jesko configurations and Jesko Absolut configurations. The 125 Jesko will be built by Koenigsegg, their price tag will be at $ 2.8 million and all are now owned.
Besides Jesko Absolut, Koenigsegg also launched the world’s first four-seater hypercar in early March, called Gemera. Not only is a mega-GT with four comfortable seats and a luggage compartment large enough for four people, Gemera is also a super car with capacity and performance not inferior to its brothers.
Koenigsegg’s mega-GT features a Koenigsegg CC-inspired design, along with modern lines of Jesko combined with details from the fighter. The car owns a wheelbase of more than 3 meters, creating a spacious and comfortable interior space. The front and rear luggage compartments can accommodate all four passengers on board.
To give Gemera a spacious interior, Koenigsegg Stone uses new seat technology for the front two seats. Seat is made entirely of carbon fiber and extremely thin, integrated seat belts. These two seats weigh only 17 kg, 33 kg lighter than the seats on other models of the company. In the second row, Koenigsegg has integrated the seats into the monocoque of the car, so they both support the rigidity of the chassis, reduce weight significantly and increase legroom by 100 mm.
Koenigsegg equips Gemera with a capacity of only 2.0 liter, three cylinders with two turbochargers but it can generate up to 600 horsepower. Named “Tiny Friendly Giant” by Koenigsegg (TFG – the friendly little giant), this engine block has been declared the most eco-friendly engine when it comes to both conventional and natural fuels. organic materials. Combined with electric motors are arranged on the car, Gemera has a maximum capacity of up to 1,700 horsepower and will save most fuel on the market.
Using a mid-engine, the power from this engine is transmitted to the front wheel axle of the car through a direct transmission gearbox KDD (Koenigsegg Direct Drive). An electric motor will be placed at the crankshaft to add power to the other two engines that will be used to drive the rear wheels. In normal mode, this four-seater mega-GT can reach a top speed of up to 402 km / h, accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in just 1.9 seconds. In full electric mode, the car can reach a maximum speed of 300 km / h and the car’s battery will run out in about 50 km.
Koenigsegg will only produce 300 mega-GT Gemera units with a selling price of about 1.9 million USD each.
