The Koenigsegg Gemera is a 1,700-hp four-seater "Mega GT."

We've known for a while now that Koenigsegg had big plans for the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. Geneva may have been canceled this year, but Koenigsegg isn't letting the coronavirus scupper its plans. During an online press conference, Koenigsegg unveiled the Jesko Absolut as the fastest car the company has ever made. But that isn't the only new model Koenigsegg unveiled today: presenting the new 2021 Koenigsegg Gemera, the world's first "Mega GT" and Koenigsegg's first-ever four-seater. Put simply, this has to be the fastest four-seater on earth.
"Ultimate performance has belonged to the world of two-seaters with very limited luggage space - until now", said CEO and founder Christian von Koenigsegg. "The Gemera is a completely new category of car where extreme megacar meets spacious interior and ultimate environmental consciousness. We call it a Mega-GT."

Koenigsegg's new Mega-GT has room to comfortably seat four large adults and store their luggage. Despite being a four-seater that can be used for family trips, Koenigsegg claims the Gemera "easily outperforms" most combustion and electric two-seat hypercars. Powering the Gemera are three electric motors with one for each rear wheel and one on the crankshaft of the engine producing a combined 1,100 hp. A 2.0-liter, three-cylinder dry-sumped twin-turbo Freevalve engine provides an extra 600 horsepower. Ironically, this unit is nicknamed the 'Tiny Friendly Giant.'
In total, this setup produces a combined 1,703 horsepower and 2,581 lb-ft of torque, allowing the Gemera to rocket from 0-62 mph in just 1.9 seconds and onto a top speed of 248 mph. Thanks to the three electric motors, the Gemera can be driven on pure electric power up to 186 mph, while a powerful 800V battery provides a driving range of up to 31 miles in EV mode.

When plugged in and filled with second-generation ethanol or CO2-neutral methanol like Vulcanol, Koenigsegg claims the Gemera is "at least as CO2-neutral as a pure electric car running on a 'good' electric source." Before these renewable fuel sources become more accessible, the Gemera can also be driven on E85 fuel or regular gasoline.
While the Gemera is claimed to be the first of its kind in a new segment, it's still instantly recognizable as a Koenigsegg thanks to its wrap-around jet fighter inspired windshield, hidden A-pillars, short overhangs, and large side air intakes. The front is also inspired by the Koenigsegg CC, the automaker's first prototype from 1996. Giant scissor doors provide easy access to the four-seater cabin.

Despite being staggeringly fast, the Gemera Mega-GT is a comfortable car that can be used every day. Among the creature comforts onboard include four cold and four warm cupholders, a front and rear seat central infotainment displays, front and rear wireless phone chargers, Apple CarPlay, on board internet and Wi-Fi, an 11-speaker sound system, exterior and interior cameras, four reading lights, memory foam heated seats, electric front seats, three climate zones and more.
Its 118-inch wheelbase gives "unprecedented comfort and straight-line stability," while rear-wheel steering allows the Gemera to corner with agility and achieve a turning radius comparable to smaller cars. At high speed, the rear-wheel steering also gives better directional control.
In terms of safety tech, the Gemera has a strong carbon fiber monocoque, six airbags, stability control, traction control, ABS and advanced driver assists. Production of the Koenigsegg Gemera is limited to just 300 units, but pricing hasn't been announced. Even so, expect this new Mega GT's price tag to fetch seven figures.

That's a horny looking ride, I think a tan interior would be a bit more to my liking though.

Pretty good looking car. No huge, unnecessary, and distracting grille in the front.

I fell in love with Koenigsegg when I was first introduced to them through Jeremy Clarkson in a Top Gear episode.

The best feature they keep bringing on all their models? Those doors! Truly beautiful on how they open and close

Man I loved those Godzilla and Gemera movies when I was a kid. Cool to see a car named after him.

Von Koenigsegg is a genius.
Also that they make a completely new&bespoke engine for this car with such a limited production run.

looks great and that 3 cylinder is making some big power. Not unheard of for a 2.0 liter car like an evo to make 600hp though. I'm more curious about an NA freevalve engine and how that would feel to drive.

[QUOTE=Miko M;25880647]Video update

So as I said before, stunning. The car is so elegant, but I think a baseball glove tan leather would suit it better IMHO.

I think he said 1000KM range with 50KM of that on battery, so how much fuel does it carry to make that range and what kind of milage does the 3 pot give or am I missing something.

Way Kool.

I doubt that they will refuse leather color changes to their customers paying over $1MM for this car. As it stands right now this is probably the coolest car I've seen recently.

Except this thing is going to price out at about $1.7 Million USD. Although, the tech is very interesting and might force everyone else to up their game.
