1,600-HP Koenigsegg Jesko ignition in 3 … 2 … 1

The video features the Jesko mostly devoid of bodywork as engineers dig around inside and tweak things on computers. The surprising thing is, the twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 doesn’t really blow the roof off the place with a bass-y rumble or shoot flames from the tailpipe. Granted, the engineers didn’t hammer on it, but it sounds almost understated. As understated as a several-million-dollar-plus hypercar can be, we suppose.

Other things we spotted include the single, central tailpipe, the two-piece carbon-ceramic disc brakes and the inner bits of the carbon-fiber tub. The dihedral doors are flipped in the upright position, as well. On the production car, look for suede, leather and carbon fiber inside, as well as a steering wheel with touchscreens a la the Mercedes-AMG GT four-door.

Surface Transforms plc (LON:SCE) are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use. Koenigsegg nominated SCE as a tier one supplier on their Jesko car.
