Jesko – the all-new megacar from Koenigsegg – is powered by a newly designed, 1280hp (1600hp on E85), twin-turbocharged V8 engine that benefits from significant changes to the Agera engine it replaces.
At the core of the newly designed engine is the world’s lightest V8 crankshaft. Weighing just 12.5 kilos, Koenigsegg’s new flat-plane 180-degree crankshaft allows Jesko to produce more power, with greater efficiency, while achieving a higher 8500rpm rev limit.
The crankshaft is milled by small manufacturing house located in southern Sweden. It is made to Koenigsegg’s in-house design from a single solid steel billet.
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.
