Koenigsegg Reveals Stunning Pre-Series Production Jesko
Koenigsegg is particularly excited about the Jesko’s patented Light Speed Transmission (LST). It boasts nine forward gears and seven wet, multi-disc clutches – it’s said to be the quickest shifting transmission in the world. The opening and closing of clutches, a process that happens simultaneously, will enable dramatically fast and seamless gear changes.
“The Jesko feels very natural to drive,” says prototype driver Markus Lundh. “Because of its seamless shifting, whether up or down, everything just happens much faster. There are no delays, it is very responsive and behaves exactly the way you want it to.”
Pre-assembly will start at a 10,000 square meter facility that has been expanded. Deliveries of the Jesko are planned to start in spring 2022.
