The veil has been lifted showing a new era in the Koenigsegg stable. This comes in a form of a 4-seater Supercar Hybrid that still manages to have scissors doors. It is called the Gemera. The Gemera can be driven in electric power only. And speaking of power – lets break it down:
Total: 1268kW (1700BHP), Electricity (battery) power accounts for 65% of the power – which is: 820kW
Engine/Combustion (weighing in at 70kgs): 3 Cylinder, 2.0L sequential twin-turbo charged producing a mind boggling: 448kW – all at 3500Nm (this is across most of the rev range when you combine both power plants. For rev heads, the engine revs up to 8500rpm).
Range on the electric power: Approx. 50km’s
Battery power: 15kWh
Claimed 0-100: 1.9 seconds
Top speed: 402km/h (250mph)
The cool stuff:
The name means to give more. [Ge] – to give [mera] – more. I guess this some’s up car. You really get more from a power point of view and the number of passengers you can carry. Important to note when you pay more attention to the pics of videos – is that the rear passengers can step out without folding the front seats forward. This obviously means the doors, which as mentioned earlier, are long, scissors doors. So, a real coupe then!
Other cool things include:
- 22-inch carbon fibre mags
- No B Pillar
- 8 cupholders. (Yes, 8 cup holders). 4 in front – 4 at the back. One is hot, one is cold. This is made possible by the Peltier effect.
- Stiffest 4-seater car to date.
- Curb weight (with a full tank of fuel) is 1800kg.
Planned units and prices:
Koenigsegg only plans on making 300 of these and price is said to start at an eye watering R26 million. That’s $1.7m. Phew. But we love it and it’s damn aspirational.
