Koenigsegg Jesko Hydra, mythological one-offOctober 18, 2020
Made for a young American tycoon, it shows a high rate of customization that could push the price over 4 million euros
Very few examples, unique performances and a six-figure price. Koenigsegg Jesko is among the most anticipated supercars on the market, thanks to its 5-liter V8 that delivers 1600 horsepower. It will be produced in only 125 units, with a price of no less than 2.8 million euros. To this we must add the customization that each individual customer wants to apply on his model. A striking example is the Koenigsegg Jesko Hydra, one-off made for a young American tycoon, which appeared in some shots on Instagram.
The name derives from Greco-Roman mythology and is a clear reference to the nine-speed gearbox with which the Jesko is equipped. This special specimen is embellished with a special glossy carbon fiber livery, with purple laminations that make the outfit of this supercar elegant and at the same time very aggressive. The same tone is then also repeated on the rear wing terminals and on the brake calipers. On the central fin that slopes towards the rear from the roof of the passenger compartment, there is a serigraphy that reproduces the Lernaean hydra while the identification badge appears on the side, also in purple.
This color also dominates the interior of the passenger compartment, with purple details for the seams of the seats, the dashboard and the sky. Finally, the Hydra logo also appears on the headrest. The exact price of this special specimen has not been revealed but it is possible that it exceeds 4 million euros, with the wealthy and lucky owner having to wait another two years before getting behind the wheel of his purple Jesko.
