Koenigsegg this week unveiled the Jesko at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
At the heart of the Jesko is a new 5.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine.
Thanks to some new turbochargers and other bits compared to the Agera RS, output is a meaty 1,280 horsepower -- on regular gas.
Throw some ethanol-heavy E85 into the mix, and that number rises to 1,600 horsepower.
Sending all that power to the rear wheels -- yes, just the rear wheels -- is perhaps the most clever nine-speed transmission on the planet.
Koenigsegg's Light Speed Transmission has nine forward gears and seven clutches, yet the whole package weighs less than your average dual-clutch gearbox at about 198 pounds.
The automaker says that simulations have seen the car eclipse the 300-mph mark
Of course, bringing those results to the real world introduce a whole host of complications, from tire compounds to location.
Only 125 will be built, and each will cost a hair under $3 million. Better start savin'.
