It’s been a while since we heard any big news from Koenigsegg. So long, in fact, we were starting to get a bit suspicious there was something fishy going on with the marque that basically created the hypercar category. Turns out we were right on the mark because they just launched a metaphorical ICBM at the whole automotive industry with their Jesko Hypercar.

Named after Christian von Koenigsegg’s father, this fighter jet of a four-wheeler is, by all accounts, one of the most extraordinary vehicles we’ve ever beheld. Not only does it look rearing and ready to go to lightspeed, it very nearly can — boasting a monstrous 1,600 horsepower and 1,106 ft-lb of torque when fed by E85 biofuel. Even on regular gasoline, it still gets 1,280 ponies. All that power comes courtesy of a redesigned 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine alongside a revolutionary new 9-speed transmission the brand is calling LST (Light Speed Transmission) and the world’s lightest V8 crankshaft (under 28 pounds total). And it pairs beautifully with the car’s revised aerodynamics (capable of over 2,204 pounds of downforce) and monocoque carbon fiber chassis. Of course, this magnificence comes at a steep price tag in the neighborhood of $3 million. We’re not entirely sure what’s going on in the heads of the mad scientists at Koenigsegg, but we’re loving every single bit of it.

Purchase: $3,000,000+
