New Koenigsegg Gemera

1700bhp four seat Hybrid can reach 250mph

Koenigsegg has revealed the Gemera mega GT, its most practical model yet, a four-seater that promises the firm’s trademark blend of refinement and straight-line pace, and unlike anything else in Swedish firm’s line-up, claimed to seat four adults comfortably with ample room for luggage.

The Gemera’s power comes from a 2.0L, three-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 600bhp all by itself and 443lb ft, credit to a pair of substantial turbochargers and use of innovative ‘free-valve’ technology, which replaces the camshaft with actuators that control the valves, the coupled to that is a trio of electric motors, two for the rear wheels and one for the crankshaft, for a combined power output of 1700bhp. All this takes the four-seater from 0-62mph in just 1.9 seconds and onto a top speed of around 250mph.

The Gemera can function in pure-electric mode up to sppeds of 186mph, and is capable of covering a claimed 31 miles before the petrol motor kicks back in. Just 300 examples will be produced. Official pricing is yet to be confirmed, but the car is likely to exceed £1 million.
