Last year, just before the Geneva Motor Show, I came to see you in angle home. Of course, you were putting the finishing touches to the YESCO, but that was the high downforce track version and corralled me who said yeah, we're gon na do something a bit more slippery a bit higher top speed. I didn't think it's going to be as extreme a transformation as this, so this is the YESCO absolute and let's just cut straight to the chase. Yes, so if you pull on the numbers together, it will go faster than we ever want to drive so we're thinking the performance of the car will not stop us reaching our hoped for records. It will be the driver or the road conditions of something else. Not the car but we're talking way way over 500 kilometers per hour, 500 is 310 miles an hour Wow, so simulation it's more than fast enough. We actually don't even want to build anything faster ever yeah. This is the absolute last and top standpoint. You'Re limited by the tires you're limited by location, by bravery and by sanity. So what are your friends for verifying or getting near that yeah? So it's, all that process again reaching out to authorities and police forces trying to shut down the good road? So it might take a year or two or something like that – that the aim is, of course, to prove what the car is capable of and you're saying this is the fastest car the Koenigsegg is ever going to produce full stop.
We won't go this one. Your turn to throw a line under Road car. Of course, I don't know if we ever make some record walking death central, I don't know, but for for a homo gated Road car. This is actually too fast in a way I mean it's, just because we could that yes and now it's enough winner. So since we last spoke, Bugatti of course, did 305 in shiron soups. Yes, do you recognize that, as a correctly I mean I'm sure they drove that fast? I mean they had equipment to check it. So I mean my question: is I guess is that the speed the customer cars will have? Was there something unique about that car it's kind of unclear at this point as far as I'm aware and that's all, I guess you know how much do you care, obviously and Hennessey, with this f5 venom, the SSC tuatara both of those targeting at 300 mile an Hour top speed: how much do you want to beat them? So you care about being first, you know, it's always I mean these magical flat numbers it's, always cool to be. First, I think you know. I think the tuatara looks extremely slippery. I think of this extreme asleep. I think it has similar drag numbers that we have, but it's all about point is 0.278, something like that which is amazing for cars like this, then then. This, of course, is a matter from my point of view.
Are we all pull a homologue eight? Is it the customer car spec? What about high speed, stability and drivability, and these things I really don't know but but good for them and let's see what happens. You know right. The absolute just take us through the differences in the body compared to the the track orientation. Yes, the most obvious one is that the rear of the car is a little bit longer. There is no huge active rear wing. We have these high speed strikes that we put started designing to increase high speed stability even further, but surprisingly, the more we played around with them. They started creating vortexes behind the car to reduce the wake, so without those we're, almost 0.29 in drag but with them were under 0.28 I've, never seen anything that it's inspired by a fighter jet. Exactly I mean thing: yes, I mean they're very high speed and they need to be controllable, advise it's a similar need. Then we have this Li bit longer more flat section in a very straight cut off very straight cut off a dish. 300 degree, where the dish on that looks good from where they clip in exactly that is the same rear wheel as on the track. Focus yes, cause with clipped in dishes, so you can actually undo them if you want and it's only if you want to go even faster, but you can probably break a record without it either and then this is smooth it out.
It relieves pressure from the wheel, but it doesn't give a lot of extra downforce. So the s guy is more aggressive, exactly that's. And then, then there is this scoop in the bonnet that's taken out from the radiator, which gives a lot of downforce, but also some drag without the scoop in the bonnet. You can now put the roof back in there like on traditional turn xx. This is actually an clickable option in the configuration in the ESCO, so it's, not it's it's, not like it's two different cars, it's it's, a lot of bodywork changes and suspension changes. They'Re soft softer Springs because with less downforce you don't want as hard Springs. Okay, so becomes little bit more comfortable as well, and so the engine, just to recap, is the five liter twin turbo. V8 1600 horsepower correct on e85. Yes, thank rank. Yes, a nine speed, light speed, gearbox your own design, yeah, could jump from any kids or any other correct, correct, yeah working me I wasn't, raped when you were over the last time we hadn't actually driven it. Yet now we have several months of testing and it's, just amazing and the responsiveness of the engine combined with that gearbox is truly yeah. Mind blowing okay, so you said this is an option on the thing so I'm and now I'm gon na buy one of these. Yes, because how many s goes in total, coming 2525 and then it's totally up to the customer whether they have an absolute or attractive thanks.
So you could build 125 of these or 125 of the track versions. It'S up to the guts we don't know it could be 20 or 10 or 50 or 70 do predict really don't know. I don't know because this looks great. It is a sleek version of sometimes in this software aerodynamics exercises can end up looking a bit over the tall ride. Excite no styling goes out the window because it's all about error, but this looks amazing. I'D have one of these good. I, like it, be fun on track. You know, with the software Springs and the less downforce it's easier on the edge of the grip. You can really power fight it easily. It loses grip sooner, but still it's an amazing track, or it still has downforce it's. Just not that super stiff suspension and tons of downforce that makes it super fast, but edgier, of course.
