FIRST DRIVE: Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut - £2.3m, 1578bhp Hypercar Tested On Road And Track | Top Gear
Dec 02 2022
This is the wingless Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut - according to Christian von Koenigsegg: “The name Absolut comes from the fact that this is the absolute fastest Koenigsegg that will ever make.” Yikes.

The engine is a flat plane crank 5.1-litre twin-turbo V8 that for the most part feels naturally aspirated and always very angry indeed. It produces 1,578bhp and 1,106lb ft of torque, can rev from idle to 8,500rpm in 0.2 seconds, 0–62mph takes around 2.5 seconds and top speed in this Absolut version is theoretically the scary side of 310mph. We say theoretically, because no one’s found the space, or the brass balls, to find out yet...

Only 125 will ever be built costing around £2.3m each, though deep pockets won’t help here – they’re all completely sold out.

Allow Top Gear magazine's Jack Rix to be your guide on the fastest Koenigsegg ever.
