Another exciting new model from Hot Wheels: Koenigsegg Jesko
One of the most exciting new models for this year is by far the Koenigsegg Jesko
Hot Wheels has come out with the Koenigsegg Jesko before any have hit the road in real life. On E85 the Jesko's 5.0 L flat-plane crankshaft, twin-turbocharged V-8 can produce a mad 1,603 horsepower and 1,106 lb ft of torque. Mated to his insane engine is an insane transmission. Why is it insane? Well its because it has 9-speeds and 7-clutches. 7 clutches!
Front details and textures
As for the model the detail is not as strong as the Lamborghini Urus in my previous article, but its not bad at all. The sharp headlights are painted with silver patterns within them. The beautiful Koenigsegg crest is painted on the front and it makes the model look excellent! Before the black painted front vent, is a lime green accent with grey stripes coming down from the roof of the Jesko. The car has a aggressive front splitter and canards that are a part of the metal body. There are also black painted vents on the fenders which complete the race-focused look.
Koenigsegg Jesko in the rain
As for the rear, sadly there is not painted taillights. I think this is because the accents across the wing and the stripes, so Hot wheels couldn't add more paint because then it would have to cost more than $1. I am sure if Hot Wheels does a few recolors, some will not have stripes and will likely have both front painted and rear painted taillights. However there is silver outlining on the oval-rectangular exhaust, which I think looks great. Right below that is silver "Koenigsegg" lettering. So overall the detail on the rear is just fine.
This is the second Koenigsegg model from Hot Wheels. They have had two Agera R's. Both were premium however. The Jesko being the second model. I own both castings and I think the proportions of the Jesko are just a little better than the Agera. The front of the Jesko, in my opinion is as good as it can get at this scale as is the rear with the perfect shape and the epic diffuser. The wing is a little chunky, but as you get used to the casting it doesn't look all that bad.
I will give this casting 5-stars as that it is awesome to see Hot Wheels make models from such a small, yet significant brand. However I do hope that they add some taillight detail and better wheels. That said though I am so happy t own this casting and I hope that you collectors will find one too. If you enjoyed don't forget to bump and follow for more content daily! Have an excellent day!
