Koenigsegg has once again redefined blistering acceleration, with the Jesko Absolut achieving a record-breaking 0-400-kilometer-per-hour (km/h) dash in just 27.83 seconds. This remarkable feat, accomplished in late June 2024, eclipses the previous record of 28.81 seconds set by its own Koenigsegg Regera in 2023.

The Jesko Absolut's record-breaking run wasn't just about shaving off milliseconds. The car also set new benchmarks for the 0-400 km/h sprint (18.82 seconds) and the 0-250-mph (miles per hour) run (19.20 seconds), further solidifying its position as one of the world's fastest production vehicles.

Aerodynamics for Extreme Speed

The Jesko Absolut's record-breaking performance can be attributed in part to its aerodynamic design. Unlike its track-focused sibling, the Jesko, the Absolut prioritizes high-speed stability over downforce. This is evident in its sleek, low-drag bodywork, boasting a drag coefficient of just 0.278. This focus on streamlining translates to less wind resistance, allowing the car to reach incredible speeds with minimal aerodynamic resistance.

Powering the Record

Under the hood of the Jesko Absolut lies a monstrous 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. When fueled with E85 biofuel, this powerhouse cranks out a staggering 1600 horsepower. This immense power, coupled with the car's lightweight construction and slippery aerodynamics, propels the Jesko Absolut to record-shattering speeds.

Record-Breaking Run with Minimal Modifications

For the record attempt, Koenigsegg kept the Jesko Absolut largely in its stock configuration. The only modifications were a roll cage for driver safety and a driver-preferred seat from the Koenigsegg One:1. This underlines the car's inherent potential for extreme performance without extensive modifications.

The Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut's record-breaking run is a testament to the Swedish automaker's relentless pursuit of speed and innovation. This incredible feat pushes the boundaries of what's possible for production cars, leaving the competition in the dust.
