This New Koenigsegg Hypercar Is a Ludicrous One-Off With 24-Karat Gold Accents

There’s more to this Koenigsegg Jesko Attack than otherworldly performance.

The Swedish marque recently shared photos on Instagram of a fresh example of its outrageous hypercar with 24-karat gold accents. The dazzling images show just how far the company will go to help put drivers in the vehicle of their dreams.

The Jesko was already a head-turner—especially since it was designed for track dominance—but this gold-tinged example commissioned by an unnamed customer is easily one of the best we’ve seen. That’s because the speed machine, which is named after the automaker’s founder, Jesko von Koenigsegg, somehow manages to look both elegant and muscular thanks to the shiny detail work.

“Versatile enough to grace a gala dinner or dominate the track with record-breaking laps,” the brand wrote of the car in the social media post.

The bulk of the car’s body may be exposed carbon fiber but splashes of textured gold leaf on the front fascia, side panels and gigantic rear wing, along with matching badging, give it some serious flair. There are even gold accents on its staggered wheels and brake ceramic disk brakes. No photos of the two-seat cabin were included in the post, but we wouldn’t be surprised if a distinctive color scheme carries over to the interior.

A gorgeous exterior is far from the Jesko’s only artful aspect, though. We imagine there are more than a few enthusiasts out there who view the mid-mounted, twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 as a mechanical work of art. The potent mill is connected to a nine-speed transmission with seven clutches that sends 1,280 hp and 738 ft lbs of torque. That’s if you’re using regular pump fuel. Fill the car up with ethanol fuel, E85, and output is boosted to a monstrous 1,600 horses and 1,106 ft lbs of twist. If that’s somehow not impressive enough for you, the engine redlines at 8,500 rpm thanks to the use of a new 180-degree flat-plane crankshaft.

Koenigsegg may be happy to share images of the new Jesko, but it hasn’t said anything about its price. We don’t think we’re going out on a limb by saying the car likely cost a whole lot, though. The car, which is limited to a production run of just 125 units, starts at $3 million after all.
