Four Seats, Eight Cupholders, 1,677 HP AND 250 MPH!
Chicago friend, Dr. Jagen Venk, and I chat often, mostly about what cars he wants versus his wife’s practicality. With a couple of kids and that aforementioned gal, he doesn’t want four seats but enjoys a happy marriage and plans to continue it. The Koenigsegg Gemera was made for you, buddy.
First, it’s gorgeous. The only comparison that comes to mind is the never built, but still could be, Bugatti four seater. And somewhere, I’m sure a Bugatti engineer is bent over a desk doodling two rear seats in a Chiron.
A GT, what with the four seats, the Gemera has unveil hyper car performance in a way no one else has been able to, mostly due to a price point few have the ability to pay (think starter home in Malibu). Starter Home In Malibu
But the Gemera also sports luggage space enough accommodate grand road trips still to take a family of four out on their own grand tour, and it does so without making the cabin cramped, and without making any excuses regarding performance.
Front and rear infotainment screens, individual climate controls and lots of room to stretch out lends the same warm feeling to those who regularly fly first or business class.
This is a car that boasts available torque of 2,600 pound-feet, but also front and back seat infotainment screens, three-zone climate control, and a bevy of cup holders; aside from all that, you get nifty looking luggage designed to make you the darling of every bellhop.
Most of the Gemera’s mind-bending speed comes from electricity with its three electric motors combine to produce 1,100 horsepower of the 1,700 horsepower available.
Koenigsegg models are extremely limited in production; the previous entry in the company’s road-going performance rogues gallery was the Jesko, which sold out in short order. Expect the same of the 300-example Gemera, and a fitting sticker price, too: $1.9 million.

• ICE is mounted midship and powers the front axle together with one E-motor through a propshaft
• Three Electric Motors: One for each rear wheel with 500 bhp each and one E-motor on the crankshaft 400 bhp to power the front wheels together with the 600 HP turbo motor
• Total output 1700 bhp
• 1100 bhp of combined electric power plus the 600 bhp from the ICE motor

The Gemera combines the exciting performance traits of a mid-engine two-seater megacar with the practicalities of a four-seater car. As a Mega-GT and Koenigsegg’s first four-seater, the Gemera signifies a revolutionary new vehicle category with an innovative automotive design to match.
