The Coolest Supercars Of 2022

When you make the most sophisticated and cutting-edge cars in the world, it can be hard to top what has already been done. But that hardly keeps Christian von Koenigsegg from pushing the envelope even more. At the time of writing, the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut is the fastest and most extreme model offered by the manufacturer and possibly ranks above any car at the time. While the Koenigsegg company is eponymously named, the Jesko naming serves as a tribute to the founder’s father, Jesko von Koenigsegg.

The list of groundbreaking technology and features of this car is probably too long to list. However, MotorTrend states that the highlights include a 5.1-liter twin-turbo V8 with an output of up to 1,600 horsepower capable of an 8,500 revolutions-per-minute redline. The engine is completely developed in-house and uses three injectors per cylinder, a unique air injection system that spools the turbos faster, and a pressure monitoring system in the cylinders, an industry first. This is backed by a trick transmission that shifts lightning-quick and weighs a scant 198 pounds.

All of this is encased by loads of carbon fiber and special touches of the highest imaginable quality. The interior is a blend of high-performance and luxury car, resulting in something amazingly fast yet ultimately controllable and usable for average drivers. It is an impressive car that is very cool, but also wickedly expensive at close to $3 million.
