The Koenigsegg Gemera is a 1700bhp, School-Run Machine
Posted on 9th November 2021 at 12:14
Dubbed the world’s first Mega-GT, the Gemera is Koenigsegg’s first 4-seater car which not only will be able to out-run most hyper-cars, but also take the kids along for the ride too with both rear seats even having ISOFIX. Named using a combination of two Swedish words, the name Gemera signifies “to give more”. So... What is Koenigsegg giving us?
In terms of engine, the Gemera has a mid-mounted, twin-turbo 2.0 engine as well as 3 electric motors – one for each rear wheel and a third mounted to the front axle. Koenigsegg have described the three-cylinder petrol engine as the ‘Tiny Friendly Giant’ as it improves fuel consumption and lowers emissions but, combined with the triplet of electric motors, still provides extreme performance and some seriously impressive statistics:
Combined Output of 1700bhp.
Top Speed of almost 250mph.
0-62 in less than 2 Seconds.
30 Miles of Electric Driving Range.
A Price Tag of approx. £1.4 million
To make these figures happen, it has all-wheel drive, all-wheel steering and all-wheel torque vectoring to offer a stable yet exhilarating drive. However, interior comfort has not been compromised. The Mega-GT offers memory foam seats, three-zone climate control, wireless phone chargers as well as four heated and four cooled cup holders. Said to be able to comfortably seat four adults along with enough luggage space for a carry-on bag per person - the Gemera is definitely making its case to be classed as a ‘GT’.
Customers are expected to have to wait until 2023 to take delivery of their Gemeras and it will be limited to only 300 units. In the meantime though, it is certainly a pretty car and seems relatively spacious inside, it is also said to be more eco-friendly and is undoubtedly hyper-car fast, suggesting that the Gemera appears to tick every box. However for £1.4 million, it should!
We would love to know what you think of Koenigsegg’s first Mega-GT?
