Tang Orange Pearl Is The Right Color For The Koenigsegg Jesko @ Top Speed

Koenigsegg, as a carmaker, has always taken pride, not only in its engineering but its interior finish as well. In true tradition, the interior is made of the highest quality materials and, despite being a hypercar, offers all the creature comforts you need. More importantly, it continues the same color scheme from the exterior, featuring contrasting orange accents from the best leather, subtle silver motives, and of course, lots of carbon fiber.

“We are very excited to showcase this pre-series Jesko in conjunction with the start of production of the 125 Jesko and Jesko Absolut customer cars. As part of our gradual expansion, the Jesko’s pre-assembly begins at an extended 10,000 square meter facility”, Founder and CEO Christian von Koenigsegg adds.

With any Koenigsegg, we have to mention performance and driving characteristics, which are simply mind-blowing. The Jesko is powered by an in-house-built 5.0-liter twin-turbo V-8, which makes about 1,600 horsepower (1,625 for the wingless Jesko Absolut) and 1,106 pound-feet (1,500 Nm).

Top speed 300+ mph
Gearbox nine-speed multi-clutch

The nine-speed LST (Light Speed Transmission) sends power to the rear wheels, said to be the next step in evolution for the double-clutch transmission. It’s currently believed to be the quickest-shifting gearbox in production and features seven wet clutches while retaining compact packaging. In addition, all Koenigsegg cars manage to be both visceral and predictable (except maybe the 2006 CCX).

The car will debut early in 2022 and we already know it will boast incredible numbers, the main one being the top speed of over 300 mph (483 km/h) for the Jesko Absolut. Until then, we are happy to bask in the beauty of the Tang Orange Pearl finish of the pre-production Jesko, which rivals the beauty of a sunset over the Andes.
