Koenigsegg Jesko Embarks On Epic World Tour

Is it coming to your city?

Koenigsegg doesn't launch all-new vehicles very often so whenever it does it's cause for celebration. Revealed last March at Geneva and brought to the US for the first time last month for the New York Auto Show, the Koenigsegg Jesko has officially embarked on a world tour initiated by the Swedish supercar builder. All of the stops will be hosted by the ever growing list of Koenigsegg dealerships stationed throughout the world in key markets, including China, North America, Europe, and the UK.
