David the Inverter and Goliath

08 April 2022

The Koenigsegg Gemera debuted in March 2020 as the brand’s first four-seat hypercar. The Swedish automaker now has its prototype with all of the systems onboard just over two years later.

Apart from the four-seat configuration, this giant of a motor car is powered by a mid-mounted, twin turbo-charged 2.0 litre, 3-cylinder engine, yes! a 2.0 litre, three-cylinder engine.

As you would expect from Christian Von Koenigsegg, the unusual, this challenger car produces 600 hp and will reach 60mph in 1.9 seconds and hit 249mph.

Don’t let the small engine size fool you; it is enhanced by a 16.6kWh battery pack with three electric motors. Fitted with a ‘David’ inverter, four-wheel-drive torque vectoring, this tiny engine is ready to take on the Goliaths of the industry.

According to Koenigsegg, ‘Ultimate performance has belonged to the world of two-seaters with minimal luggage space – until now. The Gemera is the world’s first Mega-GT and Koenigsegg’s first four-seater. Extreme Megacar meets spacious interior and ultimate environmental consciousness.’

This could bring a whole new meaning to ‘I am late for the school run.’
