Back at the 2020 Geneva motor show that never happened, about a thousand years ago, Koenigsegg was due to reveal the new world’s-fastest-car. The show didn’t happen, but Koenigsegg stole it anyway. Sweden’s premier purveyors of scramjet-quick carbon fibre revealed it was working on a wingless, finned, slippery-as-a-greased-ice-skate version of the Jesko hypercar, known as the Jesko Absolut.
We can only presume that, while the motoring world’s a little quiet right now, Koenigsegg is continuing to beaver away at developing its 500kph+ special way up in Angelholm, because it’s wheeled out the prototype for some beauty shots on its own private runway. Drink it in.
