A new luxury car retailer is offering a Koenigsegg Jesko in cherry red and carbon fiber, and it looks pretty sweet.

Finally, You Can Get A Koenigsegg Jesko In Something Other Than White

There’s a new luxury car network offering a Koenigsegg Jesko in breathtaking Cherry Red.

Koenigsegg revealed the Jesko, their hypercar replacement for the Agera RS, at this year’s Geneva Motor Show to thunderous applause from assembled automotive enthusiasts and the 1%ers who could possibly afford it. Limited to just 125 units, by the time Geneva was over all of them had been sold.

We assume that the vast majority of those orders came from luxury car dealers such as the appropriately named “Luxuryandexpensive,” a group that touts itself as the largest luxury network on Earth. They specialize in selling high-end brands such as Aston Martin, Bentley, Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren, Bugatti, Pagani, and of course, Koenigsegg.

Their most recent acquisition seems to be a Jesko, but rather than the bright white paint we’ve seen it in all previous appearances, this Jesko is done up in gorgeous Cherry Red livery along with bare carbon fiber for the wing, rear decklid, hood vents, rear diffuser, and side air inlets.

The rest of the car seems to be a regular Jesko, which is about as far as it gets from a “regular” car. In the rear is a 5.0-L twin-turbo V8 that produces 1,280 hp and 738 lb-ft torque using premium unleaded, but can be fed E85 racing fuel for 1,600 hp and 1,106 lb-ft of torque.

A 9-speed multi-clutch transmission allows lightning-fast shifts from any gear, and active aerodynamics produce an astonishing 2,200 lbs of downforce at top speed. With a curb weight of just over 3,000 lbs, that much downforce almost lets the car travel upside down.

Top speed for the base Jesko is currently unknown, but we do know that Koenigsegg is making an ultra-fast version called the Jesko 300 that will attempt to break the 300 mph barrier.

This particular Cherry Red Jesko is on offer for €2,350,000, or roughly $2,650,000. Prospective buyers won’t be able to change the paint job but will be able to choose between leather and Alcantara for the upholstery.
