Koenigsegg Jesko’s Key Fob Has A Ghost Button – Can You Guess What It Does?

With everything going on at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, it’s easy to miss out on some interesting features, such as the key fob of the Koenigsegg Jesko.

It’s not just a piece of automotive jewelry used to lock and unlock the doors, as it has other functions, too. One of them is the automatic opening and closing of the doors, boot and engine lid, which enables a touchless entry.

Pushing the buttons won’t damage that expensive paint either, because the Jesko features sensors that protect the automated doors from opening when an obstacle is detected.

Koenigsegg knows that those who will buy a Jesko will want to show off some of its features. As a result, they fitted it with a Ghost button on the key fob which, if pushed, will bring all movable panels to life.

Only 125 units of the Swedish brand’s new hypercar will be produced and each one is believed to cost at least $3 million before taxes.

Power comes from a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that develops a Chiron-beating 1,600 PS (1,577 hp / 1,177 kW) and a peak torque of 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft). The output is available with E85 ethanol fuel blend, as on 95-octane unleaded gas, max power drops to 1,280 PS (1,262 hp / 941 kW).

Koenigsegg will come up with another version of the hypercar that will produce more downforce, and they will try to break the 300 mph (483 km/h) barrier with it.

      I would welcome a gimmick like that in some types of cars. Maybe even revving the engine occasionally to the music. Some rock or metal songs would go nicely with that.

  • APPARENTLY THE GHOST IS A NOD TO THE PREVIOUS OWNERS OF THE FACTORY.

    Cool, for sure. But what a ghastly key fob. Gaudy to the extreme.

    This is the track spec. It’s the gt spec that will be doing the 300 mph run.

  • anonymousOne7234

    still wondering why they put a 251 on the rear wing if only 125 will be produce.
    Does the 251 stand for something else?

    • SMSO

      “The 251 on the side of the Jesko Geneva show car represents chassis #251” -APEX.ONE

      Got told so by a quick google search.
