Koenigsegg Jesko Odin 2021. The Swedes have presented a new version of the Koenigsegg Jesko hypercar — Absolut. If the original version was aimed at those who often test the ability of the car on the ring track, then Jesko Absolut is «sharpened» for the highway and should demonstrate an unprecedented maximum speed.

“This is the fastest Koenigsegg ever built, and the company will never strive to create a faster production car,” the developers said.

All key dimensions of the Absolute coincide with Jesko (base — 2700 mm, width — 2030, height — 1210), except for the length: here it is equal to 4845 (+85 mm to the usual Jesko). And the difference is just in the tail: in front of us is a longtail in Swedish.

What kind of maximum speed Jesko Absolut gives out, the company has not yet said.

Holds a theatrical pause. A year ago, boss Christian von Koenigsegg assured that this coupe should at least exceed the bar of round 300 mph (483 km / h).

Now the landmark has clearly changed: the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ hypercar, the pre-production prototype of which with the limiter disabled last fall accelerated to 490.484 km / h.

The brand itself had previously held the Agera RS coupe in the 1360 hp modification as a record holder. and 1371 N • m (457 km / h). Do the Swedes want to exceed 500 km / h and calm down on this?

Talking about the usual Jesko, the company focuses on high downforce, which reaches one ton already at a speed of 275 km / h, and at the maximum it grows to 1.4 tons. km / h, but there are doubts).

But when describing the Absolute, the air resistance coefficient is highlighted — only 0.278, which is unusually small for a mid-engined hypercar.

In combination with a very moderate frontal projection area (1.88 m²), low energy consumption for driving at high speeds is obtained.

Of course, this was not without a powerful V8 5.0 biturbo engine. When running on an E85 alcohol mixture, the unit produces 1622 hp. and 1500 N • m at 5100 rpm (1000 N • m available from 2700 to 6170 rpm).

It is complemented by a nine-speed «robot» Light Speed ​​Transmission (LST) with seven clutches (rear-wheel drive, with an electronically controlled differential).

Actually, the internal combustion engine passport data is the same for Jesko and Jesko Absolut. But Absolut weighs 30 kg less.

Its dry weight is 1290 kg versus the Jesko’s 1320, and the curb weight is 1390 versus 1420.

These differences are complemented by stabilizers at the stern, inspired by the F-15 fighter, and front aerodynamic «flaps» under the bottom, helping to reduce drag and control clearance at high speed.

The result is something interesting when Jesko Absolut cranks his motor to the 8500 rpm red zone.

Exclusive version of Koenigsegg Jesko to be named after god Odin Hypercar will be distinguished by gold decor.

Last fall, information about an exclusive version of the Koenigsegg Jesko hypercar called the Hydra was leaked to the Web.

In the appearance and name of the car, there were clear references to monsters from ancient Greek and Scandinavian epics, although this was not directly mentioned.

What can not be said about the new project of the Swedes, which received the formidable nickname Jesko Odin.

The two-door Koenigsegg Jesko Odin, named after Odin, the head of the pantheon of the Scandinavian gods, will be distinguished by a special design.

First of all, this is the body. It will be made of carbon fiber under a transparent varnish, into which gold scales will be mixed.

Wings-canards on the front bumper, legs of side mirrors, end plates of the rear wing, exhaust nozzle and decorative stripes on the roof will be covered with precious metal.

Perhaps the interior of the hypercar will be decorated in the same style, but we will only find out about this in 2022. Meanwhile, no changes are envisaged in the technique.

The engine is the same V8 5.0 with two turbochargers, developing 1280 horsepower when using regular fuel, and 1600 horsepower for bioethanol E85. Box — «robot» LST with eight clutches.

Unlike the Hydra, the Odin does not have additional canards in front, an air intake on the roof and a stabilizer fin between the horizontal supports of the wing.

Although the general approach to the design is the same. For Jesko Hydra, visible carbon fiber is also chosen, only the scales are not gold, but mica, purple.
