The company's CEO Christian von Koenigsegg confirmed that the company had finished recording the highest speed once the Jesko Absolut's production was complete. "This is more than fast enough. We actually don't want to build anything faster," as he told to Top Gear.

How fast is this hypercar? According to Koenigsegg's calculations, the Jesko Absolut was able to run more than 500 kph (310 mph) very comfortably beyond its rival, Bugatti. The only thing left is to set the date for the actual recording time, but it takes time.

"This is a process to get permission from the authorities, the police, trying to close the road well. So it might take a year or two, something like that. But the aim is that we can prove the car's ability," said Koenigsegg further.

The Absolut uses the same engine as the Jesko, a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that pumps power to 1,578 hp (1,600 PS) on the E85. The flat crank of the V8 engine is also equipped with a small electric compressor that moves air into the turbo to eliminate pauses. The power is channeled through a multi-clutch 9-speed Light Speed ​​transmission system.
Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut featured also a large rear wing with a pair of protruding backs to help stability at high speeds. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2xe4T2V)
And the Jesko Absolut uses a large rear wing with a pair of protruding backs to help stability at high speeds. This combined with the longer back end gives a resistance coefficient of 0.278 Cd.

Based on the Guinness World Record, the fastest car in the world is still lined by Koenigsegg Agera RS. This hypercar is the fastest car in 2017 with a speed of 277.87 mph or 447.19 kph.
Bugatti Chiron managed to overtake it by penetrating the sacred speed of 304.77 mph or 490.48 kph. However, the Guinness World Record was not recognized because it was carried out on a one-way circuit. While the Koenigsegg Agera RS was tested on a 30 km highway connecting Las Vegas and Pahrump. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TOP GEAR | CARSCOOPS | MOTOR1]
