The New $3M Koenigsegg Jesko Supercar is Already Sold Out

Koenigsegg Automotive produces some of the finest supercars in the world. These supercars are also naturally super expensive. Despite Koenigsegg’s sky-high prices, the automaker sells vehicles with ease. In fact, the newest Koenigsegg, the Koenigsegg Jesko, is already sold out. If you were planning on purchasing a Koenigsegg Jesko, you’ll have to take your $3,000,000 elsewhere.

Just how fast can the Koenigsegg Jesko go? More importantly, is it worth its multi-million dollar price tag? It is so ridiculously fast that the automaker refers to it as a megacar. Its 5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine produces an incredible 1280 horsepower. It can make 1600 horsepower using E85 biofuel.

Koenigsegg says the Jesko is the fastest car it will ever produce. This is mind-blowing considering the Koenigsegg Agera RS’ speed. The Agera RS has reached speeds of 278 miles per hour. The Jesko is estimated to reach speeds of 300 miles per hour. It is scary fast.

The Koenigsegg Jesko sold out almost as fast as it accelerates. According to Motor Authority, the $3,000,000 car’s 125 build spots are already filled. The Jesko is still in production, and the super-rich have already reserved the super-fast car. Even if folks could afford the Jesko, chances are they have already lost the race to purchase it.

Customer deliveries will begin in 2022. Auto enthusiasts eager to check out the new megacar probably won’t be seeing this beast on local highways. Hopefully, popular automotive YouTubers will be able to show off a Jesko in all its glory.

The SSC Tuatara is acknowledged by many as the fastest car in the world. The Tuatara has reached speeds of 316 miles per hour. There are also rumors circulating that the SSC Tuatara can go closer to 330 miles per hour, which would be preposterous for almost any other car.

The Koenigsegg Jesko is definitely one of the fastest cars in the world. The SSC Tuatara’s only current rivals are the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ and the Koenigsegg Agera RS. The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ is a modified Bugatti built for the specific goal of going beyond 300 miles per hour. It was able to reach 304 miles per hour.

The Koenigsegg Jesko is estimated to reach speeds close to the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. It could even challenge the SSC Tuatara for the top spot. The Jesko isn’t the current fastest car in the world, but it definitely has the potential to be.

Is Koenigsegg faster than Bugatti?

It’s safe to say Koenigsegg’s biggest competition when it comes to speed is French automaker Bugatti. There are other vehicles faster than Koenigseggs, but Bugatti has been a consistent rival. Koenigsegg has produced some high-speed vehicles, but the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ turned the tables on the Swedish automaker in a huge way. It seems the Koenigsegg Jesko is the company’s greatest hope for besting Bugatti. Will the Jesko make history as one of the fastest cars ever?
