Join me for a full access tour of the Koenigsegg factory and new Jesko production line with company founder Christian von Koenigsegg, before an exclusive opportunity to experience the new Jesko Absolut in action. I first visited the home of Koenigsegg in Angelholm, Sweden approximately a decade ago, at which point the company had produced only around 100 cars from a single original hangar. It's safe to say that in the time since things have changed quite dramatically, but nothing more so than the evolution and new facilities being put into operation at this time. With multiple areas required thanks to the introduction of new models including Jesko and Gemera, it's an exciting time for the hypercar manufacturer.

However, today's focus is the Jesko, and in paticular the first time the Jesko Absolut has been brought out to the unway for testing in its full look. Initially we set off with Christian to discover the assembly process from materials to the engine dyno, via composites and gearbox production, before venturing to the new building that houses the Jesko production line itself. Next we're over to the runway where the Jesko Absolut awaits, and an opportunity to join Christian on board his latest vehicle to get a feel for it, and the new sound created by the world's fastest revving production car engine. Needless to say, this is just the start, and it's going to be a very exciting journey for the 125 customers of the Koenigsegg Jesko, and the entire team involved in the project. Thanks for watching.
