It could be the world’s first 300-mph production car!

The Koenigsegg Jesko is the company’s latest supercar, third megacar, and spiritual successor to the iconic Agera. Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the Jesko boasts a power-to-weight ratio greater than 1:1, which means its engine generates more horsepower than the car’s total curb weight in kilograms. Koenigsegg offered similar versions of the One:1 and Agera, but the Jesko takes things one step further with an impressive downforce rating of 2,205 pounds.

Named after Jesko von Koenigsegg, the father of company founder and CEO, Christian von Koenigsegg, the Jesko marks the debut of the firm’s latest carbon-fiber chassis and nine-speed multi-clutch transmission. It’s also supposed to hit at least 300 mph according to Koenigsegg, so it could improve the Agera RS’ 277-mph world record really soon. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

Surprise, Surprise - The 2020 Koenigsegg Jesko is Already Sold Out

Surprise, Surprise - The 2020 Koenigsegg Jesko is Already Sold Out

It didn’t take long for all of the 125 units to find owners, in spite of the $3 million price tag

You’d need a dictionary of superlatives to appropriately describe Koenigsegg’s latest creation, the Jesko. That’s because it is a hypercar with a credible bid to reach 300 mph, is powered by a 1,578 horsepower 5.0-liter V-8, and it is no longer available. That is right, all of the 125 units have already found an owner, and that means you’ll have to wait until one of them decides to sell his or hers at a premium.

The Jesko is Koenigsegg’s replacement for the Agera. You can spot the shared DNA if you look at the roofline and the greenhouse but, beyond that, the Jesko is a step into the future in almost all areas. People seem to dig this evolutionary pattern as they flocked to buy the Jesko, named in honor of Christian Von Koenigsegg’s father, even before it was officially unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Auto Show. In fact, 83 of the 125 Jeskos that will be made were sold prior to the Swiss show.

The 2020 Koenigsegg Jesko Took the Geneva Motor Show by Storm, But It's the "Sister Car" That Could be the Record-Breaking Version of the Two

The 2020 Koenigsegg Jesko Took the Geneva Motor Show by Storm, But It’s the "Sister Car" That Could be the Record-Breaking Version of the Two

Christian von Koenigsegg calls it the Jesko 300, and we already know what the "300" in the name means

Koenigsegg dropped a bombshell at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show when the Swedish automaker unveiled the Jesko hypercar, the follow-up model to the record-breaking Agera. All eyes naturally gravitated towards the beautiful exotic, but just as company CEO Christian von Koenigsegg started talking shop about the Jesko and it’s all-conquering capabilities, he made mention of a “sister car” that prioritizes performance over downforce. There’s no official name to that model yet, but for now, von Koenigsegg calls it the “Jesko 300.” If you need to ask what the “300” in the name signifies, then you need to start paying more attention to the real-world stakes in the auto industry’s hypercar segment.
