When an option costs as much as a supercar

Koenigsegg Jesko lists $443,400 option

When you’re in the market to buy a Koenigsegg Jesko, chances are you don’t really have to mind every single dollar (or Euro) when you go over the options list, this won’t be your daily driver, nor the only car in your garage, a Jesko is a hypercar from Sweden that boasts an impressive starting price of no less than $3,000,000, before options, and there are some rather pricy ones if you want something special.

If you managed to get on the list of clients for the new Koenigsegg Jesko, you received a link to the online configurator for this very special car, so you can play around on a virtual representation of this hypercar, and get a feeling of just how you want to have your multi-million dollar car look like, and it all starts on the exterior, with the body color.

Opting for a solid color comes at no additional charge, if you want a metallic paint you’ll have to add about $14,000 to the total, a pearl metallic paint like the Tang Orange on the car above will set you back $25,000, but there is an even more impressive Sweet Mandarian orange paint which is a candy paint, like the Apple Red … those are $63,000.

The Candy Red paint is a $63,000 option, but that black stripe is another $21,000

Things start to really add up if you ask Koenigsegg to build you a clear carbon fiber bodied Jesko, which they will do, but at a serious premium, the cheapest option here (everything is relative to a $3 million car) is regular, glossy finished clear carbon fiber … at $292,000, if you prefer to have your carbon fiber topcoat with a tinted hue, that’s a $346,000 option on the list, finished in either green Blue, Red or Purple, and it gets worse … there is a $443,000 option called KNC, which stands for Koenigsegg Naked Carbon, or raw, uncoated carbon, so it’s a satin finish and it adds almost half a million $ on top of the original price.

Did you notice that black center stripe on the Candy Red Koenigsegg Jesko above? That’s another $21,200 option, and it’s not possible when you opt for the KNC option, did you want that stripe to be finished in carbon fiber, no problem, for $45,600, or did you prefer the stripe in gold leaf, why not right? Just add $41,700 … for a dual stripe from front to back, and when you do spec the exterior in visible carbon fiber, you’ll just have to add the $104,000 carbon fiber wheels too … right?

And the fun continues on the interior too, remember all that bright chrome on the dashboard and central console, there is an option to get all that done in black, which personally I would prefer, but it’s another $15,700 option, for some additional paint on the inside, and that’s just for the Koenigsegg Jesko, the ‘beautiful’ one, if you want to get the fastest one, the Jesko Absolut, you’ll need another $600,000 in your bank account.
