The carbon fiber monocoque tub is the absolute center point from which all the peripheral equipment is mounted. The extremely durable tub is comprised of the world’s strongest fibers interwoven into its design – Dyneema.

Dyneema is an ultra-strong composite with comparable yield strengths to high-strength steel. With a strength-to-weight ratio of almost eight times that of the aforementioned steel, the Koenigsegg Jesko is second to none in design construction.

The fun and games don’t stop there, however. An active rear steering system, with three degrees of rear steering, and dual-triplex suspension (carried over from the Agera) increases performance characteristics exponentially.

The Koenigsegg Jesko is literally designed to stick to the road!

The steering isn’t the only aspect of the Koenigsegg Jesko that comes alive around you. Active engine mounts will firm up (or soften, depending on driver input) to optimize performance.

Easy cruising gets you soft mounts; drive-it-like-you-stole-it tenacity gets you…well, you get the point!

The unsprung mass has also been given careful considerations, and if a forged aluminum wheel isn’t good enough for you, check the carbon fiber wheel box.

8.4-lb, 21″ x 12″ rear wheels, and 6.7-lb, 20″ x 9″ wheels in the front make keeping the wheels planted to the asphalt a milk run.

Fully adjustable electric dampers and super-long front and rear wishbones control every aspect of the suspension you could hope to have control over, with different “modes” available to the driver at the push of a button.
