Koenigsegg Allegedly Planning Le Mans-Inspired Track Car
When Koenigsegg announced the Jesko Absolut in March, it came with a radical announcement – it will be the fastest Koenigsegg already. Yes, you read that right. The Swedish brand said that and when asked how fast the car is, here is the answer: “Looking at the math and our advanced simulations – it will be incredibly fast.”
And yes, the company also hinted that it would be faster than the record 304.77 miles per hour (490 kilometers per hour) set by the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+.
But Koenigsegg has yet to set a record for the Jesko Absolut, although the company has said it would be happy to “take the crown” when an opportunity arises, so it’s something that is exciting.
There is another thing to celebrate about Koenigsegg. According to an exclusive report by Supercar blog, sources said a limited-track track car project would have received a start signal.
The limited-edition Koenigsegg track car would have several code names, including LM, according to Supercar blog. And we know what LM represents almost every time – Le Mans.
Take this with a grain of salt, as Koenigsegg has yet to confirm any of these reports. Supercar blog also added that somewhere between seven and eleven units of the track car will be produced.
Will it be the fastest new Koenigsegg ever? We strongly doubt it. Being a race car, this limited edition will likely get lap times instead of speed records, so it won’t necessarily be faster than the Jesko Absolut.
It will however be the most expensive Koenigsegg when released, according to Supercar blog.
