2021 Koenigsegg Gemera
The 2021 Koenigsegg Gemera is a two-door, four-seat hypercar developed by the Swedish company that gave us the Agera, Regera, and Jesko. But unlike its siblings, and despite having only two doors, the 2021 Gemera offers seating for four. And it does so via four equally comfortable seats, so it’s not just a regular grand tourer. The 2021 Gemera boasts a hybrid drivetrain under the skin, comprising three electric motor and a three-cylinder engine. As shocking as it may sound, the three-cylinder generates 600 horsepower, making it the most powerful of its kind in production, and works on a variety of fuels, including CO2-neutral methanol. Overall, the hybrid drivetrain pumps out an amazing 1,700 horsepower and 2,581 pound-feet of torque. Let’s find out more about the world’s first practical megacar - aka Mega GT - in the review below.
Koenigsegg is a revolutionary automaker that has been pushing the threshold of engineering with every new car of theirs. Be it the Koenigsegg CCR that humbled the legendary McLaren F1 or the Koenigsegg One:1, the world’s first megacar that had an impressive power to weight ratio of 1:1. The future also looks quite thrilling with the Koenigsegg Jesko, a 1,600-horsepower machine that has the making to surpass the 300 mph mark!
Revolutionary engineering technologies have been at the forefront for Koenigsegg. Their latest ground-breaking feat comes in an ironically small package and is aptly named the Tiny Friendly Giant - the world’s most powerful 2.0-liter three-cylinder engine with 1700 horsepower and a monstrous 2,581 lb-ft of torque. This engine uses the magical Freevalve technology which makes all of these mind-boggling numbers possible and comes packed in the Koenigsegg Gemera - their very first megacar with four seats.
Video: Supercar Blondie Reviews The Koenigsegg Gemera
At just 26 years old, Koenigsegg is a neophyte in the supercar market. It doesn’t have the history of Bugatti or the prestige of Ferrari. It doesn’t even carry the same household name recall as Lamborghini. But what it does have is an aggressive and pioneering owner who isn’t afraid to take bold risks in the name of innovation. Christian von Koenigsegg is a bold of an owner as they come, and it’s because of intrepid spirit and unwavering resolve that a car like the Koenigsegg Gemera exists. The Gemera is Koenigsegg’s newest masterpiece, and it also happens to be the first four-seater hypercar in the world. A car of such esteem and status deserves a proper walk-around, and who better to do it than one of our favorite YouTube car reviewers: Supercar Blondie.
The Koenigesgg Gemera Is Awesome, But Its Price Tag Certainly Isn’t
This year’s Geneva Motor Show turned into the 2020 Online Motor Show. You all know the reason for that, but it turns out Koenigsegg didn’t want to simply demolish its stand in Geneva and go home.
The Swedish carmaker actually insisted on revealing its cars there - albeit without the cheers of a big crowd. Even more, they’ve invited Top Gear to witness the stunning Gemera mega-GT in the metal, and that’s how we caught word of its price tag.
Cupholders? The Koenigsegg Gemera is the Most Practical Hypercar Ever Built
Koenigsegg unveiled the Gemera, its first-ever four-seater, and basically reinvented the grand tourer segment. Not only because it’s incredibly powerful at 1,700 horsepower, but also because it’s more comfortable than the average hypercar. That’s thanks to no fewer than eight cupholders, plenty of rear-seat passenger room, comfortable rear sets, and easy ingress and egress.
Is Koenigsegg’s 600HP Three-Cylinder Engine The Key To The Survival of the Internal Combustion Engine?
Following years of rumors that it will build a sedan, Koenigsegg unveiled its first four-seater at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. Called the Gemera, it’s a classic grand tourer inside the cabin, but it retains the mid-engined, two-door layout of Koenigsegg’s mainstream supercars.
But while this is an important breakthrough for the brand, the big news here is that the Gemera is powered by a hybrid drivetrain that includes an insanely powerful three-cylinder engine. Yes, that’s not a typo. Koenigsegg built a three-cylinder and it cranks out an amazing 600 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque.
On-Board Video Shows Koenigsegg Regera Romp Its Way To Record 0-249-0 MPH Run
The Koenigsegg Regera’s record-setting 0-250-0 mph run was the talk of the auto world late last month, largely because the hypercar needed only 31.49 seconds to do it. Not only did the Regera establish a world record, but it did so by shattering the previous record — held by the Koenigsegg Agera RS — by almost two seconds. This new record is the kind that other automakers would die to own, but at this point, it’s become kind of old hat for a company like Koenigsegg. This is, after all, the same car brand that officially owns the fastest production car title record, among other records. The Swedish automaker provided footage of the Regera’s record-breaking run, and while it did look like the Regera could’ve waltzed its way into the record books, the same scene looks completely different from inside the hypercar. That’s the video we’re about to see and it tells a lot from the perspective of Koenigsegg factory driver Sonny Persson, the man who drove the Regera to the record books.
Koenigsegg To Launch an "Affordable" Supercar In 2020 - Here’s How It’ll Do It
Rumors of an entry-level Koenigsegg have been around for some time now, and while the automaker has addressed those rumors in the past, development of the model hasn’t progressed as fast as you’d expect from an automaker that’s known for building the fastest production car in the world. But the time has finally come. Koenigsegg high-volume entry-level model is expected to arrive in 2020 as the Swedish company shifts its focus from building low-volume supercars into the supercar mainstream, all with the goal of attracting new customers to the fold. Details about the “entry-level” supercar are still under wraps, but it is believed that each model will cost between £700,000 and £800,000. That’s around $900,000 and $1 million based on current exchange rates. It’ll still be expensive, but it’s a far cry from the $3 million record-breakers and road-destroyers that Koenigsegg is famous for.
Start saving money now, because Koenigsegg’s newest gas-electric hybrid megacar, the 2016 Koenigsegg Regera, will cost €2.1 million, the equivalent of $2.37 million, when hits the market in 2016, making it one of the most expensive new cars in world. Despite its stratospheric price, the Regera will be the most-produced Koenigsegg’s ever, with a run of 80 units. The price was posted recently to German car-buying site, Mobile.de.
You’ll be getting a lot of car for all that money. Power comes courtesy of an innovative drivetrain of Christian von Koenigsegg’s own design, which produces a massive 1,500 peak horsepower. An internal-combustion V-8 producing 1,100 horsepower works in concert with the Koenigsegg Direct Drive system, which essentially replaces a traditional multi-speed transmission with a pair of YASA axial flux electric motors producing 700 horsepower. Koenigsegg predicts a 0-60 time of 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 250 mph.
The Regera is a sort of more-luxurious, grand-touring take on the traditional Koenigsegg formula, more in line with the Bugatti Veyron, rather than the Ferrari LaFerrari or McLaren P1 (that’s still the One:1’s job). Combined with the seamless drivetrain, the Regera’s active engine mounts and adaptive dampers will offer an effortlessly fast driving experience.

Koenigsegg has been teasing us over a new hypercar that it has dubbed the Regera, and today the automaker finally unveiled it. And with this debut, Koenigsegg has officially blown its mold to smithereens, as not only is this a plug-in hybrid hypercar – something Koenigsegg was completely against in the past – but it is also far more luxurious than anything else the Swedish brand offers.
We’ll get to the luxury side of things here in a bit, but let’s focus on what really matter the most: the hybrid drivetrain. On the gas side of the equation is a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine with a dry-sump oil system. Alone, this engine cranks out a massive 1,100 brake horsepower, but three YASA-built electric motors chime in with an additional dose of torque for off-the-line acceleration and torque vectoring. One of the electric motors is at the crankshaft, and it adds 221 pound-feet of torque, while the remaining two power the rear wheels and produce 192 pound-feet each.
The power from this system is routed through a new Koenigsegg Direct Drive transmission, which replaces the standard gear-based transmission. This new transmission reduces parasitic power loss and helps improve power delivery. The only real downside to this setup is that it weighs 194 pounds more than the traditional transmission.
