How to configure the Koenigsegg Jesko hypercar?August 12, 2020
Those of the 125 richest people on the planet who managed to pre-order the new Swedish hypercar Koenigsegg Jesko, now have the opportunity to fully configure their copy of the novelty as they want. One of these lucky ones made a video showing the process of personalizing his Koenigsegg Jesko.
The official website of the Swedish brand Koenigsegg has launched an online configurator for the new Jesko hypercar. It is noteworthy that in order to enter it and try to build the hypercar of your dreams, you will need a username and password. The thing is that access to the configurator is offered only for those 125 people who have pre-ordered the Swedish car. Businessman Manny Khoshbin is one of them, and he decided to share the wonderful experience of configuring the Jesko hypercar completely to his liking, as he talked about in his YouTube video.
As well as going through the many options for what could be the fastest car Koenigsegg has ever built, we’ll also find out how much some of the options available are worth.
What caught our attention is the uncoated carbon fiber body, which in itself raises the hypercar’s price by a whopping $ 443,400, roughly the price of the new Lamborghini Aventador S.
Jesko buyers can also ask Koenigsegg to give the car with a carbon fiber body a shade of green, blue, red or purple, in which case the option costs $ 346,100. Pearlescent paints cost $ 24,800, while metallic paints are offered for $ 13,900. Several “free” solid body colors are also available to customers.
In addition to these high-priced paint options (or no paint jobs), there are additional ways to personalize your Jesko hypercar by adding a center stripe to the body, as well as choosing a set of aluminum or carbon fiber wheels. Naturally, the most expensive will be carbon wheels with Michelin Cup 2R tires – their price is 110,700 dollars.
It goes without saying that the Koenigsegg Jesko offers a variety of interior customization options. In general, Mr. Manny’s wishes raised the price of the hypercar to $ 3,419,000, but as he showed in his video, the price can easily be increased to $ 4,081,050.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Koenigsegg expressed dissatisfaction with the low estimated cost of the unique One: 1. The supercar in question now exists in only six copies, and the Bonhams auction estimated it at “only” 1. 8-2.3 million dollars. The company claims that the estimated cost is categorically inconsistent.
