2022 Genesis G80 Sport, electric Corvette, Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut: Car News Headlines

The Genesis G80 was redesigned for 2021 with a new platform, new powertrains, and a very alluring exterior. For 2022, there’s a sharper G80 Sport variant and we’ve just tested it. While there’s no extra power, the car’s well-tuned suspension serves notice to the BMW 5-Series.

It’s official. General Motors has confirmed that an electric Chevrolet Corvette is coming and will use the Ultium platform, which currently supports outputs of up to 1,000 hp. A hybrid Corvette will come first, though. It’s due next year and will pair a V-8 driving the rear wheels with one or more electric motors at the front axle.

Koenigsegg’s development of the Jesko is almost complete and soon the Swedish hypercar marque will start production of the 125-car run. The Jesko comes in track-focused Attack and high-speed Absolut grades, with the latter destined to be the fastest car Koenigsegg will ever produce.
