Koenigsegg starts production of the Jesko

In July Koenigsegg showed them Pre-production version of Jesko on the airfield in Ängelholm. In the meantime, production should have started in the newly expanded factory. However, Jesko and Jesko Absolut do not roll off ordinary tapes. Eight high-tech production stations are available to build the latest hypercar from Sweden. That requires precision and craftsmanship. And takes a little longer than you might think.

Der "TheSupercarBlog.com“Exclusively reported the start of production of the Jesko, referring to unspecified sources. After production of the Regera was phased out, the Jesko was the only model of the manufactory until the start of production of the Gemera.

125 pieces of the Jesko are to be produced. It is the fastest Koenigsegg of all time and has active aerodynamics. With the 1.600 hp that the supercharged 5 liter V8 from Koenigsegg is supposed to produce with E85 fuel, a top speed of more than 500 kilometers per hour could be possible.

The maximum torque of the hypercar is 1.500 Nm. The production time of a Jesko should be 8 weeks. It will therefore take until November or December before you will see a production vehicle. The handover of the first hypercars to waiting customers is planned for the first quarter of 2022.

The basic price, net without VAT, is around € 2.35 million. As a rule, it does not stay at the base price. Koenigsegg enables its customers every conceivable individualization, which of course has to be remunerated accordingly. At the end of the day, the price tag for a Jesko or Jesko Absolut can also be € 3 million.

Swedish engineering and manufactured goods have their price. The finance minister of the country of destination will be pleased.

    Scania is still the most profitable truck manufacturer in the world. Much to MAN's chagrin, both have the same mother (VW).
    I think CvK (thanks for the abbreviation Volvaab) is still a great entrepreneur. That he did not save Saab at the time, or I could "gladly" look after him. I think that after or immediately after VM he would have had what it takes to keep Saab alive and bring it forward.

    According to this, it takes exactly 125 weeks from the start of production to build the 125 Jesko and almost 2,5 years to make a good 300 million in sales. Funny …

    Compared to Evergrande, CvR's business looks like a good, solid and frugally run corner shop in Simrishamn in the 1960s.
    Fascinating how much design, engineering and development are apparently covered in a profitable way. It's cool that Sweden can still do that. But it also makes me sad ...
    Saab-Scania and Volvo were once able to do just that - profitably put really good tractors, trucks, cars, buses, airplanes and construction machines on their wheels at low cost. Everything made in Sweden and the majority of the ownership of brands and ABs is still in Swedish hands. It was a great time when S was producing all sorts of things first for Ove's father, then for Ove and increasingly for export. Also the best camera system in the world.
    With profitability, technological leadership, the ownership structure, independence and the Made in Sweden, news about Koenigsegg is always a journey through time to a bygone Sweden for me ...
    I can't read it without sadness. But also not without joy and without any fascination. 125 Jesko are definitely better than nothing ...
