Koenigsegg Jesko emas 24 karat 01

THE Koenigsegg Jesko was introduced in 2019 as a replacement for the aging Agera. The Swedish megacar is named after Jesko von Koenigsegg, the father of the founder and CEO, Christian von Koenigsegg.

According to Koenigsegg, production of the Jesko is limited to just 125 units. In a recent Instagram post, the company revealed the latest unit to roll out of its factory.

Appearance wise, this particular Jesko is said to have taken inspiration from a similar-looking Agera RS ‘Phoenix’ which was specially built for renowned US real estate mogul Manny Khoshbin.

Like the Phoenix, each panel body panel of the Jesko is made from carbon fiber, finished with a clear coat for a glossy effect. It is then accentuated with 24 karat gold leaf accents on the front canards, side mirror arms, bonnet, front bumper, side skirt fins, and rear wing endplates.

Not only that, the Koenigsegg logo and roof are also adorned with the gold leaf trim, indicating that this is not your ordinary Jesko.

This specific unit is an Attack variant that is specifically tuned for track performance, evident in the extra appendages that are there to improve aerodynamics. This include the aggressive front splitter, the diffuser as well as the spoiler.

In addition to the Attack, the Jesko is also available in an Absolut guise, which is theoretically capable of exceeding a top speed of 480 km/h. This variant does not come with a spoiler.

Both the Attack and Absolut are powered by a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that can produce up to 1,280 hp on regular gasoline or 1,600 hp on E85 fuel.

With a nine-speed multi-clutch transmission driving the rear wheels, it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under 2.5 seconds.
