All 125 units of the Koenigsegg Jesko were sold out shortly after the Swedish automaker unveiled it at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. And as it turns out, some of those wealthy clients were only in it for the money.
Looking to make a quick buck off the hypercar, someone decided to try and flip the build slot they secured. The ad from German used car dealer “Mulsano” on Mobile lists the Jesko for €3,986,500 ($4,468,530), tax included. The vendor claims that the Jesko will be delivered 12 months after ordering it, so in theory, one should still be able to spec it to their desire.
In all fairness, the Jesko was no cheap vehicle to begin with, as the rumored $3 million (€2.7 million) starting price before taxes made it one of the most expensive new cars out there. But, what a car it is; the 5.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 pushes out a whopping 1,600 PS (1,577 hp / 1,177 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque, with the only condition being to fill the tank with E85, as on 95-octane unleaded, the output drops to only 1,280 PS (1,262 hp / 941 kW).
Thanks to the impressive aerodynamic work and mind-blowing output, the Jesko is capable of hitting the 300 mph barrier or 483 km/h in old money. Guess Bugatti has a lot to be concerned about.
