1600 horsepower for $ 3 million
In 2017 hypercar Koenigsegg Agera RS set a new speed record - driving on the highway Nevada he was able to accelerate to 447 kilometers per hour. It seems that very soon, this record will be broken, because at the Geneva Motor Show was presented mezhdunarozhnom its updated version - hypercar Jesko. The manufacturer says that the car is capable of speeds up to 483 kilometers per hour, and in spite of the technical equipment of the new items in this willingly believe. So what is inside of this "beast"?
The car is driven by an advanced 5-liter V8 engine. He was completely different turbochargers, a more accurate pressure monitoring system and a flat crankshaft. The weight of crankshaft 12 is equal to 5 kilograms, and its neck arranged at an angle of 180 degrees. The new design will provide a quick response to the gas pedal and the roar of the engine made more calls and enjoyable. Flat crankshafts tend to vibrate excessively - to reduce it to a minimum, engineers have reduced the weight of the connecting rods and pistons, as well as the active support implemented.
In a typical fuel engine outputs power equal to 1280 horsepower. The most interesting thing happens when you use ethanol E85 - capacity reaches 1600 horsepower. Particular attention should be nine-"automatic" Light Speed Transmission, which selects the most optimal for quick acceleration gear. The switching time is less than 30 milliseconds, and the machine weight - 90 kilograms.
Body-monocoque Koenigsegg Jesko is made of carbon fiber and a slightly longer and taller than the model Agera RS. Engineers strengthened suspension arms equipped with dampers and electronics, and a horizontal shock absorber has shifted to the front axle to hypercar not squat during acceleration. When reaching a speed of 275 kilometers per hour, generating aerodynamic elements vehicle 1 ton clamping force.
Among other features new items is to provide automatic doors, bonnet and rear spoiler, wireless charging for smartphones and digital instrument panel with special software. car Koenigsegg Jesko circulation will be only 125 copies with a cost of $ 3 million.
