125 Rich People Snap Up All Koenigsegg Jesko Build Slots

All planned examples of the Koenigsegg Jesko have been sold out, the Swedish car manufacturer has confirmed.

In a statement published at the conclusion of the Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg founder and chief executive Christian von Koenigsegg revealed that 83 examples of the Jesko were accounted for before the car even premiered publicly at the event. The final 42 build slots were sold within the first 5 days of the car premiering at the Swiss show, bringing the total up to 125 cars.

“The new Koenigsegg Jesko is the highest volume production run we’ve ever planned. For it to have sold out within days of its unveiling is both humbling and a wonderful testament to the outstanding crew we have at Koenigsegg,” von Koenigsegg said.

“From the visionary work of our designers, engineers and technicians to the incredible job done by our sales team and our global network of Koenigsegg dealers – it took a great team to bring the Jesko to the world. We are very thankful for the reception it’s received from the press, the public and of course, our growing family of Koenigsegg owners.”

Production of the Koenigsegg Jesko isn’t scheduled to start until the end of 2020 and when production does get underway, the company will only build one car per week.

Those who’ve secured a Jesko build slot can configure the hypercar in two guises, one focused on track use and the other focused on top speed. The top speed-focused model will feature less radical aerodynamics and be the car Koenigsegg hopes to achieve 300 mph (482 km/h) with. The track-focused model was the car unveiled at Geneva, complete with a massive rear wing to provide huge amounts of downforce.

  • So some unlucky rich person had to wait for their Jesko until 2022 or even 2023?
