Koenigsegg has just released a video giving supercar fans a listen to its high-revving engine in the Jesko.

As explained by Christian von Koenigsegg himself, the video dives into how the company managed to squeeze 1,600 HP out of the $3 million USD Jesko’s 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. The key change in design for the drivetrain is the absence of a flywheel and clutch between the transmission and engine. The Jesko uses a new 9-speed multi-clutch transmission called the “Light Speed Transmission (LST)” and sees small clutches per each gear pair. This results in a 50% shorter transmission than the previous 7-speed dual-clutch, and a new transmission weight of just 198 lbs. With less internal inertia, the Jesko has a never-before-seen response time.

Hooking a laptop up to the Jesko, Christian von Koenigsegg demonstrates just what the new configuration is capable of as he takes it up to the 7,800 RPM limit (8,500 when driving) in just 230 milliseconds. This gives the Jesko an average of 31,700 RPM per second — making this the world’s fastest revving and most responsive production car.
