1,600 Brake Horsepower

The new Koenigsegg Jesko marks a return to brute-force, unelectrified power for the Swedish supercar builder. Packing a twin-turbocharged, 5.0-litre V8 that generates up to 1,600 bhp on race fuel, the Jesko will, allegedly, be able to do 300 miles per hour one day. On normal pump petrol, output is a more modest 1,200 bhp, although if you can afford the Jesko, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to get regular access to high-octane fuel to enjoy the full potential of this new Koenigsegg.
