A Certain Koenigsegg Jesko Build Slot Will Cost You Some Serious Bank

A build slot for one of the most anticipated hypercars, the Koenigsegg Jesko, will cost you a sum that might prompt a double take or possibly two, if you're wanting one that is.

The car, unveiled at the Geneva Motor show earlier this year as the successor to the Agera RS, is Koenigsegg's most road-going hypercar to date and is powered by a V8 twin-turbo producing up to a whopping 1,280 horsepower on regular gas and an even more remarkable 1,600 hp on E85 fuel.

The above specs leave the Jesko carrying the most powerful Koenigsegg internal combustion engine in the history of the preceding, as well as the most powerful internal combustion engine to be strapped onto a homologated production car.

The Jesko is also said to be the first road car able to break the 300-mph barrier, given it's new, nine-speed multi-clutch transmission, which has been built in-house. The aggressive aerodynamics should also play a role.

This Koenigsegg will be a limited edition and, as such, will be quite rare, with just 125 models posed for sale.

Unfortunately, all examples have already been sold. But, both fortunately and unfortunately, one of the wealthy buyers is looking to profit off the car. German dealer "Mulsano" has put a Jesko build slot up for a sale for - take a deep breath - $4,468,530, which is inclusive of tax (via Carbuzz).

The car's official price hasn't been confirmed by Koenigsegg but it has been reported that it requires the parting of at least $3 million for purchase.

The seller says that the Jesko will be delivered 12 months after it's ordered, so there's plenty of time for prospective buyers to choose their specifications and colors. Koenigsegg, though, might not be all that happy with someone trying to profit off the car so there is a chance of the listing being removed.

The company did reserve a small number of Jeskos to dealers looking to claim build slots for potential clients who were not able to attend the Geneva show, but it's not clear as to whether or not Mulsano was one of them.
