Petrol cars have the potential to be extremely fast when there isn’t a bunch of regulations and restrictions put on the manufacturer. I mean, there are teenagers building 7-second 1/4 mile cars now. Clearly we haven’t come close to the limit of petrol engines.

When you're so firmly on top, you can freely show how your stuff is made knowing your competitors still couldn't best you.
I see all this hand-laid carbon and it's beautiful, but I can't help but feel a bit of sadness knowing Lamborghini patented the resin/loose carbon fiber molding tech and nobody else can use it. I literally can't imagine what Koenigsegg would do with it.

100% ppl in comments won't or can't buy this.

80% ppl here won't even see this on road.

One would think if one made some of the "Fastest cars on the planet", the people who made them would drive them to work?

Not a fan. Their cars don't have a premium finish to them, you pay for speed, not quality and functionality of interior.

Dearest Top Gear,
Don't get me wrong, I like Chris Harris' enthusiasm about almost everything he drives like he's ready to get married to it. And keep that going :)
But as a suggestion: why not make a special department for factories? "Top Gear - Factories". And let Jack Rix do this section!
Make it longer, more in depth, if you ask me since I like the details. This way you have a whole new section that could be the new USP for Top Gear!
Chris Harris - Car Reviews
Jack Rix - Factory Tours (Don't call it The Grand Factory Tour(s) please...)
And maybe other people doing Car Shows? Haven't been following the content too much lately so I don't know who are the ones presenting the footage, but you get the gist.
And I like to make this a youtube petition right away! So please fellow Top Gear Fans, like if you (partially) agree.
Kind regards,

I wish they went into more detail about the motor because it looks IDENTICAL to a Ford 4.6L 4V motor out of a 96-04 Cobra or Lincoln Mark VIII. I know they say 5.0L but people open up 4.6Ls to 5.0 all the time.

Why lower 85 octane fuel produce higher BHP of 1600?
darkiee69 - 3 dagar sedan
It's not 85 octane. It's E85. That's 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. That's why it gives higher BHP.

I'd love to see a beefed up "Ragnarok" version of the Jesko. Maybe partner it up with a "Death Star" version as well to be the next "Thor" & "Vader" 🤔 (cut me a check if this happens)

Okay, why all the negatives!
Please enlighten me, what's the "problem". You may be other brand loyal, but that shouldn't negate other cars that just don't appeal to you and your taste.
I would never expect everyone to like all my opinions, but that doesn't mean I hate their choices. what?

Cars that cost more than $ 250,000 lose their usefulness in terms of man-kilometers. For the money you can buy a plane and travel long distances in a short hour.

The fact that they build everything in house, except the windshield and tires, is unheard of! Mr K obviously wanted to build the very best product possible, and it shows. He is a modern Bugatti; the passion and engineering. Worth the Money! amazing! And naming the JESKO, after his cool is that! what a Son

This gives me some kind of next challenges that come for hypercars in the next years
#1: 2.8M $ is ridiculous...price tag must decrease cuz it will be too expensive and earning money will be even more difficult (apparently rich people is getting richer but that fantasy will crack down when we don’t expect it)
#2: cannot go fully electric cuz making batteries for EV’s is more contaminating than running a petrol engine car, and it doesn’t have to be petrol, new fuels are coming and if not they will come with development.
#3: simulation will be the 100% way of development of a hypercar, even videogames nowadays are getting so close to reality that is very scary, you can make a car from scratch with simulation and will be an absolute destroyer since the last screw is tighten up.
#4: this hypercars need to go racing to get more money and make the industry bigger, and maybe challenge F1 for the Queen of Racing’s title.
#5 hitting 300MPH in straight line is not enought, curves have to be taken even faster than right now by any race car of today.
#6 this is not more an ego battle from now on, is an engineering battle, finding mistakes and fixing them if we want useful technologies that can go in “normal” cars from everyday use.

I'm wondering who needs a 300 mile an hour car on a public road the speed limit is 65 miles an hour unless you're on the Autobahn that's the only place in the world that I know you can go that fast and even then you can't go that fast cuz you're going to run into somebody else so why would you even want to 300 mile an hour car doesn't make sense even going through a hundred is extremely fast going to give somebody whiplash

8:24 Why not consider fuel cells? Add fuel cells to the batteries as a range extender so the weight wouldn't encrease, only the range.
(Obviously you wouldn't be going full power for all the fuel load, but why would you anyway? Even record runs don't use all the fuel load, the tires couldn't even last that long.)

Christian von Koenigsegg never stops to impress me.
But I'm also proud and impressed of the Norwegian industry-designer Bård Eker, that has been involved in much of Koenigseggs development.
