A passion project for dad, Jesko von Koenigsegg. The Jesko is named after Koenigsegg’s co-founder Christian von Koenigsegg’s father – the peaceful one. Two versions of this ultimate supercar are offered to potential buyers, a high-downforce “Attack” or low-drag “Absolut” configuration. Taking the reins from the Agera, the Jesko styling is more in your face, more aggressive, and just beautiful! Is this the perfect car? Maybe. 251 chassis here, the number as imprinted on the rear wing holds pace for this limited number production car.
This example comes from GT Spirit resin and is sealed that is. The scale is 1:18, exterior finish is complete in White/Carbon. Off the bat, the exterior White with carbon accents is a win visually – it simply looks stunning!! On the flip side, in typical GT Spirit fashion, they dismiss carbon fibre weave in favour of Gloss Black paint. This will definitely rub a fair amount of collectors the wrong way. For a budget concise piece, the overall look and feel of the model is much better than anticipated, it really looks stellar in person. And we must mention the attention to detail, well one element that is, not the cool Koenigsegg logo within the front headlights! (see the photos below). Wheels are well executed and the openings for cooling and other aero are capped with metal perforated grilles. A wise choice! Interior-wise, it’s clean. Nothing over the top and no carbon fibre accents either.
In short, the shelf presence of the GT Spirit Koenigsegg Jesko is extremely encouraging. Some corner-cutting is indeed at hand with the lack of carbon fibre elements and some minor exterior polishing along the sharp body lines or curves could be done better. If this can be overlooked, we promise the model will more than surprise you. Enjoy the pics!
