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 isn’t just content with being an exclusive brand for the rich and super rich; it also wants to cater to people who can’t afford their supercars. So the company is thinking of adding an entry-level model in its mix, although by its definition of "entry-level", it’s talking about a car that costs just $600,000. The company’s dictionary sure is a lot different from the rest of us.
Speaking to Motoring Australia at the New York Auto Show, Christian Von Koenigsegg expressed his plan to add a little diversity to the Koenigsegg lineup. Instead of just offering hypercars that come with seven-digit price tags, Von Koenigsegg is looking to add a new model that will only cost six digits, or to be more specific only twice as expensive as a Lamborghini Aventador.
We can make light of Koenigsegg’s relative idea of "entry-level", but we can’t deny that such a car sounds no less interesting than its current models. He indicated that this model will still retain a high degree of exclusivity that should bode well for those wanting a Koenigsegg but can’t afford the $1.3 million price tag of the Agera. There are people with that kind of money, especially in the Chinese and U.S. markets replete with car-loving individuals that have the deep pockets to match their thirst for speed and exclusivity.
Koenigsegg didn’t divulge a whole lot of details about this "entry-level" supercar, but you have to wonder what the timetable is for this car’s arrival.
Here’s to hoping it’s sooner rather than later.

Almost every automaker in the world is currently offering a special line of accessories to get more bang out of their brand image buck. Koenigsegg has now joined the bunch with a new Accessory Line, making it the only Koenigsegg product we can actually afford.
The new Koenigsegg Accessory Line includes a variety of lifestyle items ranging from hand-built scale models to cuff links, artwork, and clothing. The prices are also pretty accessible - when compared to a Koenigsegg model - and range from $45 for a pen or $48 for a t-shirt up to $12,300 for a carbon ceiling lamp.
We also found a blue Agera R in 1:43 scale in the store. This scale model is limited to only 500 units and priced at $188. The blue Limited Edition model was created by Frontiart for exclusive distribution by Koenigsegg Lifestyle. Each product in the new accessory line has been chosen or developed by founder Christian von Koenigsegg.
While everyone is waiting for this week-end’s Beijing Auto Show, on the other side of the world, Top Marques Monaco brings together some of the most impressive supercars in the world. And this special Koenigsegg Agera X is one of them. And no, we did not write this incorrectly! This special Agera has been unveiled at the Top Marques and according to GT Spirit it adds a few updates that further differentiate it from a standard Koenigsegg Agera.
One of the first features - and the most obvious one is of course its matte black exterior paint and the numerous carbon fiber elements. No other details have been offered, but we hope Koenigsegg will offer some official details pretty soon.
One thing is for sure though: under the hood the Agera X will keep the usual 4.7-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that delivers a total of 910 HP and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and up to a top speed of 245 mph.

It’s starting to seem like supercar makers see the path to riches will be paved with four doors. Aston Martin will have the Rapide, Porsche the Panamera, and now a new contender comes from an unlikely source. Swedish supercar maker, Koenigsegg is looking to launch its own sedan by 2011. A sneak peak should be available when a concept version is revealed at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.
The four-door model has been in development for the past two years. It will drop the engine found on the CCX in favor of a new V8 with 700bhp. It will be built entirely out of carbon fiber – but is not based on the same architecture as the CCX.
According to Andreas Petre, Koenigsegg’s Dubai manager, the future model will have a top speed of over 215 mph. "The four-door will be slightly cheaper than the CCX, and we hope to build 70-80 cars a year," Petre said. The U.S. is expected to account for 50 percent of sales, with Asia taking 30 percent, and the Middle East 20 percent.
With all of these "super-sedans" on the horizon, it looks like at least one of the companies may finally have a chance to succeed where the Bugatti EB 218 (pre-Volkswagen) could not get off the ground.
