Koenigsegg Jesko Special Edition Hypercar Rumored to Be in Development

Koenigsegg, the Swedish hypercar manufacturer known for its groundbreaking designs and record-breaking speeds, is reportedly working on a special edition of its Jesko hypercar. This news comes despite initial statements from the company that no further editions of the Jesko would be produced. With all 125 standard models already sold at a staggering $3 million each, this special edition is generating significant buzz among car enthusiasts and collectors.

Several industry insiders have confirmed that a new Jesko variant is in the works. This development follows a series of social media hints, including posts from MrJWW, a well-known automotive influencer with close ties to Koenigsegg. On Instagram, he teased followers with a photo of a Koenigsegg sign and the caption, “Something special incoming.” Additionally, MUC Collector, one of the early recipients of the Jesko, sold his model unexpectedly, fueling speculation about the upcoming release.

The special edition Jesko is rumored to be a more extreme, track-focused version of the already formidable hypercar. While specific details remain scarce, there is speculation that it will feature advanced aerodynamic modifications and other enhancements to push its performance limits even further.


The Jesko, named after Koenigsegg founder Christian von Koenigsegg's father, is already touted as potentially the fastest car in the world. The Jesko Absolut variant is claimed to reach speeds of up to 310 mph, with some believing it could even achieve 330 mph. Powered by a 5.1-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, the Jesko produces 1,280 horsepower and 1,106 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful car Koenigsegg has ever produced.

The standard Jesko is built on a 9-speed multi-clutch transmission known as the Light Speed Transmission (LST), which offers lightning-fast gear changes. The rumored special edition could include further refinements to this already impressive system, enhancing its track capabilities.

Although Koenigsegg has not made an official statement regarding the special edition Jesko, the actions of early Jesko owners and the flurry of insider confirmations suggest an announcement could be imminent. This new model might draw inspiration from previous limited editions like the NÜR Edition, which featured unique elements such as Koenigsegg Naked Carbon (KNC) finish and gold accents.

As the automotive world eagerly awaits further details, the potential release of a special edition Jesko underscores Koenigsegg’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of hypercar performance. This anticipated model is expected to command a premium price, positioning it alongside the most exclusive and sought-after hypercars in the world.

For now, enthusiasts will have to wait for the official reveal, but the excitement surrounding the special edition Jesko is palpable. Whether it will set new speed records or introduce groundbreaking innovations, this hypercar is sure to make a significant impact on the automotive landscape.
