FIRST LOOK | 310mph+ Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut... Bugatti's worst nightmare? | Top Gear

Yes, Koenigsegg have done it again. Not only did they land a rather unsubtle mic-drop at the Not Geneva Motor Show with their 1,700bhp four-seat family-wagon - the Gemera - but they threw their metaphorical microphone right in the direction of Bugatti with this - the Jesko Absolut, a top speed oriented version of the Jesko capable, apparently, of 310mph….

    • see the Engineering Explained video, it's projected top speed is 332 mph, SSC still had more to give at that speed

    • unlikely, the simulations points to it doing 331mph, the SSC still had power to spare at that point

  • I feel like it’s not the car for the top speed. It’s determined by the bravery of the driver and how far that driver is willing to take it.

    • @Malique Williams I know and I understand because I love koenigsegg just like the next guy. Cristian has worked so hard to beat the likes of bugatti and he has alot of passion for his work. I would love to see him smash, and even surpass his goal, the beat the SSC Tuatara . So far it is only a claim but I hope he get his goal. I understand what you mean about the Agera, let's hope it happens again hopefully his goal is smashed. As I said before, right now it's a work in pogress though, and I know that records come and go. Every time they become harder to beat, right now it is the SSC Tuatara and no, I'm not a fan boy of SSC but right now SSC has the record. I rather stick with the present then the future similar to a dog. We both know that koenigsegg has a future of success. I believe but that Koenigsegg can do it.

    • @Car addict nope but the koenigsegg simulation are usually correct for example the agera rs simulation was 270 miles per hour it eventually did 284 miles per hour on one run and average was 277 mph

    • Yeah, but the Agera RS still holds the record since the Chiron used a roll cage that isn’t in the productikn car, because of that the car they used isn’t a production car and the record doesn’t count :)

  • I know I'm a wee bit late with this comment, but surely the best place to do a top-speed run in this car would be either the Black Rock Desert, Bonneville Salt Flats or Hakskeen Paan? I mean, those places are suitable for seven-hundred-plus miles-per-hour World land-speed records, so surely they would be perfect for maxing-out hypercars? Just thinking-out-loud...

  • They keep saying 310mph+ Koenigsegg but I can't find any video of the Jesko doing over 300 ANYWHERE on the internet, so they can't just slap it on there as a prediction when Bugatti have already set a RECORD. Koenigsegg need prove their claims or stfu because BUGATTI own that record, NOT Koenigsegg despite they're constant 310mph bullshit.

  • This car needs dimples. I would be more than interested, how good it would perform if the surface would cause less laminar flow and less friction drag. ( Under conditions which still allow the aerodynamic advantages of down force. Of course will million dollar hyper cars be made from experts, but has anyone ever though of creating a baked surface with golf ball dimples? Or punctured surfaces from which air comes through? I´m sure it would also look insanely good.
