10 Things You Didn’t Know About The Koenigsegg Gemera

Koenigsegg Gemera

Koenigsegg has produced the ultimate passenger car for families, but the new mega car is not your average family sedan. This is a revolutionary advancement in automotive design and it could set the stage for a new generation and classification of vehicles. The Gemera is such a unique vehicle that we simply had to share these 10 things about it that you probably didn’t know.

1. It’s the first four-seat mega-car for Koenigsegg

The Gemera will be the ideal new car for a family of four. The design features four seats but they’re anticipating the need for multiple beverage holders. We’re not quite sure why they felt the need to install 8 cupholders, but it’s all good for those who like to have an extra cupholder on hand for other items. This is the first four-seater for the brand.

2. It’s going to be a mega-car

Just the mention of the term “mega-car” puts one in mind of a vehicle that has enough power to tear up the track. We learned that the Gemera will roll off of assembly lines with all the power a family car could ever need and then some. Current claims from the manufacturer tell us that the acceleration is going to be mind-blowing, propelling the Gemera from a standstill to 62 mph in a mere 1.9 seconds. Now that’s a mega-car.

3. The horsepower will be astronomical

We were floored when we learned that the new Koenigsegg Gemera is going to be maxed on power. It will be equipped with a 2.0 liter sequentially turbocharged inline-three engine. That’s just for starters. In addition to this, there will be three other electric motors helping it out. The total claimed horsepower will be 1677 with an impressive 2581 lb.-ft. of torque.

4. It’s not going to be affordable

While this may sound like the best ever family car, it’s not going to be priced within the reach of the average family of four on a blue-collar income. This sounds like a dream car that is placed just out of reach for the mainstream car owner. Although the exact cost of the vehicle has not yet been announced, those who have a good handle on estimating costs pre-production have suggested it’s going to come with a price tag of more than $1 million.

5. Koenigsegg is known for its uniqueness

Here is a bit of trivia about the maker of the Gemera that might be helpful. Koenigsegg is a Swedish automaker that has built a solid reputation for making high-performance vehicles that are loaded with power. Some of the words used to describe the design team are “mad Swedish supercar scientists,” and their final products are described as “absurd,” and “ludicrous,” but this doesn’t impune their brilliance or desirability.

6. The Gemera is a weird hybrid

The Gemera could well be one of the most unsettling vehicles produced to date. The hybrid drivetrain is certainly mind-blowing, but there is a lot more that will go along with the eccentric theme. On top of the fact that the power is just under 1,700 horsepower, it will come with memory foam seats in your choice of Alcantara fabric or leather. There will be a floating dashboard with a 360-degree camera. Cameras replace the side view mirrors so there is going to be a slight learning curve to get used to the new design.

7. Production will be seriously limited

When we say that this is going to be a limited edition that’s precisely what we mean. It’s going to be priced so far out of the ballpark for most of us that the number released probably won’t matter anyway, but there aren’t going to be many of them produced. We learned that Koenigsegg plans to build just 300 examples of the Gemera for release throughout the globe. This will be a vehicle that only the very rich will be able to afford but the rest of us can still admire the photos and dream about what it would be like to own one.

8. The Gemera has also been affected by CoronaVirus

The recent outbreak of the CoronaVirus has impacted the carefully planned introduction of Koenigsegg’s unveiling of the Gemera. There were plans in place to formally introduce her to the world at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show held annually in Switzerland. Due to the pandemic, the show has been canceled, making history, but this hasn’t stopped the automaker from inviting the press to take pictures and ask questions about their latest creation.

9. Car enthusiasts can’t decide on the proper description of the Gemera

Just about every major car magazine has attempted to put their thoughts and feelings about the new Koenigsegg Gemera into words. We’ve seen a range of descriptors flying around as though nobody really knows quite how to classify this magnificent and innovative machine. It’s definitely a design that is off the beaten path. From what we’ve seen, writers can’t decide whether the Gemera is a “supercar,” a “mega car,” a “hyper-car,” or a weird, ludicrous, absurd, or insanely expensive car. One thing is for certain, and that is the fact it is going to be a very special and rare vehicle.

10. Gemera’s engine is an innovative design

One of the most unusual things about the new Gemera is going to be the engine. There has simply not been another one like it designed in the world. The manufacturer has labeled it as the TFG, short for “Tiny Friendly Giant.” It’s a 2.0-liter three-cylinder twin-turbo that cranks 600 horsepower. There’s more. It doesn’t have a camshaft. It functions with independently opening and closing valves that utilize pneumatic actuators. How is that for being different?
