Koenigsegg Jesko 300 MPH Spec Rendered, Looks So Sleek

While preparing the Jesko for the real world, Koenigsegg realized that a compromise between downforce and low drag wasn't going to meet the company's standards. As such, Angelholm decided to kick things off with the stuck-to-the-road version we met at the Geneva Motor Show back in March. However, the Swedish automotive producer also promised there would be a sister car, a toy that would be able to push its speedo all the way to 300 mph (make that 480+ km/h).

Angelholm hasn't delivered any fresh details on the matter, since the company has been busy with initiatives such as the Jesko world tour, among others.

Nevertheless, the "300" sister car of the Jesko will undoubtedly surface at a certain point. And, to help pass the time, I've brought along a rendering that portrays this.

While the Swedish engineers have to turn to complex aero testing to adjust the 1,600 hp animal for its go-faster purpose, the main ingredient required for the transformation is no secret: less drag is required, while a certain level of downforce still needs to be present, so one can keep the hypercar on the road at the said kind of speed.

So, as LMM23 Design, the pixel label behind this work explains, the front splitter is now about 30 percent shorter. Then we have a delete job involving the front canards and side winglets, along with the rear wing - the latter was replaced with a decently-sized fin.

Nevertheless, it's more likely that the actual car will come with a rear wing that can be more or less fully retracted into the body.

And if this "studio view" of a Big K looks impressive, let's take a bit of time to check out the street footprint of such machines. For instance, we recently discussed what can be described as a casual drag race, one involving tree Eggs.

We're talking about Agera RS monsters here, so, between them, the beasts packed no less than 4,080 horsepower.
