Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year, Jesko had quite an impact on attendees, sending heads not just turning, but spinning. The price will have a sizeable impact on the wallet as it’s just shy of £2.4m. That didn’t deter the 125 people who have already bought the whole of the planned output. Production will be at the rate of between 40 to 50 cars per year, with the first hitting the roads in 2023.
Don’t despair though, as Koenigsegg is working on an electric version which will set purchasers back a mere £800k. Koenigsegg isn’t sure what form this car will take, no doubt time will tell. What we do know is that it will be yet again something completely different. Whatever this turns out to be it looks as though Jesko will be the last petrol car the company builds, and if that’s the case, it really is a case of bowing out in some style.
