Three years in the past, Koenigsegg unveiled the Gemera, its first four-seater “megacar” that’s excellent as a household automotive, albeit with extra energy than most dad and mom would wish. Quick ahead to the current, the Swedish carmaker has now introduced the manufacturing model (shopper specification) of the Gemera, they usually have made some modifications.
The unique Gemera present automotive was introduced with only one powertrain possibility, which is made up of a 2.0 litre twin-turbo three-cylinder petrol engine with the corporate’s Freevalve camless expertise. Referred to as the Tiny Pleasant Big (TFG), the mid-mounted mill is paired with the Koenigsegg Direct Drive system and three electrical motors.

The TFG and LSTT are complemented by a brand new Darkish Matter electrical motor that serves up 800 PS (789 hp or 588 kW) and 1,250 Nm by itself. The raxial flux (combine between radial and axial flux) unit is the world’s strongest automotive-grade electrical motor with six-phase expertise and a world first for manufacturing vehicles, the corporate claims.
The brand new Darkish Matter sits on the entrance and replaces the Direct Drive’s three Quark electrical motors used beforehand, drawing energy from an 850-volt, 14-kWh battery positioned underneath the entrance seats. The LSTT is the magic sauce that ensures the engine and electrical motor play good collectively, whereas additionally offering all-wheel drive and four-wheel torque vectoring.

In case you’re nonetheless upset, the corporate additionally gives the Gemera with in HV8 (Scorching V8) guise that swaps out the TFG for a 5.0 litre twin-turbo V8 that makes 1,500 PS (1,479 hp or 1,103 kW) and 1,500 Nm. Throw in the identical Darkish Matter and LSTT bits and you find yourself with a Gemera that packs 2,300 PS (2,269 hp or 1,692 kW) and a couple of,750 Nm. Koenigsegg claims these figures are a brand new world document for a manufacturing automotive.
With the brand new V8 possibility, prospects now have two power-to-weight ratios to select from: 0.77 PS/kg with the TFG or 1.11 PS/kg with the HV8. Each nonetheless include the identical facilities like Autoskin robotised physique panels, 4 bucket seats, triple-zone local weather management, the Koenigsegg infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, 200 litres of boot house, powered and heated seats, automated parking help, an round view monitor, roof rack mounts, ISOFIX baby seat anchors and extra.
