Koenigsegg’s 3-cylinder engine is here to change the game. Here is how this Mega-GT will shake the automotive world.

Koenigsegg has achieved the seemingly impossible task of creating a mega grand-tourer fitted with a compact 3-cylinder 2.0L engine and three electric motors that together produce a whopping 1,700 hp! The new four-seater, first ever for Koenigsegg, promises to deliver mega-car performance while providing comfort and convenience for all its four passengers.


The Gemera is able to produce a total of 1,700 hp (1,268 kW) with a peak torque rated at 3,500 N m (2,581 lb ft) by combining its 600 hp (447 kW) engine with three electric motors (one at the front axle and two at the rear). This makes it possible to achieve 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 1.9 seconds and a top of 400 km/h (248 mph).

The range of the battery pack in full electric mode is about 50 km (31 mi), while in hybrid mode, the car can reach a combined 1,000 km (621mi). Fancy numbers, to be honest, but I guess car enthusiasts would like to know more about the little fella, and how it produces that amount of power.

Koenigsegg is able to do that by removing the camshaft, which controls the operation of the poppet valves in a mechanical way, and replacing it with pneumatic actuators, called ‘Freevalve’ technology by FreeValve (part of the company). This has the advantage of maximizing the performance and efficiency of the engine by allowing the valves to control the intake and exhaust automatically, depending on the driving conditions. On top of that, the engine features cylinder deactivation technology for even more efficiency.

The engine is also packed with two turbochargers and weighs around 70 kg (150 lb). Koenigsegg claims that the engine is 20% more fuel-efficient than a 4-cylinder one of similar displacement, and the numbers seem to confirm that. Last but not least, the engine is able to run second generation (CO2 neutral) ethanol, but until that becomes widely available, it can still use E85 (bio-fuel) and common petrol.



The exterior follows the same design language as the rest of the Koenigsegg line-up. As a Mega-GT car, the Gemera successfully hides its two extra seats while camouflaging itself as a proper two-door coupe. The automated twisted Synchrohelix Actuation Doors (KATSAD) make their appearance on this model, and provide easier and “posh-ier” access to the vehicle.

The front design, as Koenigsegg states, is inspired by the CC model that dates back to 1996. The windshield is inspired by jet fighters, and manages to conceal the A pillars, while the B pillars are completely missing thanks to the strong carbon monocoque body. Going farther below, we can see the huge air intakes and the short overhangs for better maneuverability.

The Gemera is fitted with 21-inch 9-spoke carbon fiber wheels at the front, and 22-inch at the back, and as Christian Von Koenigsegg says, they are the lightest and strongest in their category. That’s true due to their hollow carbon fiber design or “Aircore” as they call it, which means that the structural integrity of the wheel is retained while eliminating unnecessary weight.

The back, some could say, it’s even more impressive with its glass engine cover, the huge diffuser, the large air vents, and the two large exhaust tips by Akrapovič that promise to make a mesmerizing sound.

What’s equally amazing about this car, is the fact that as a four-seater it did keep its promise. Four fully-grown adults can fit in this car, with the two in the back being able to enter and exit the vehicle without bothering the front passengers.

The interior has a splendid and sporty design. The quality of the materials is top-notch, with carbon fiber and leather on every surface visible. Both front and back passengers can enjoy a large central 13-inch screen infotainment system while sitting on comfortable carbon sport bucket seats, which are fitted with memory foam.

Other luxuries include: camera mirrors, electric handbrake, a 3-zone climate control, heated and cooled cupholders (front and back), 11-speaker surround sound, wireless charging, USB plugs, and even onboard Wi-Fi.

Price and availability

The Koenigsegg Gemera is limited to 300 units, and it starts from €1,433,000 ($1,700,000). The initial 80 units were sold in a blink of an eye, so the probability of getting one (provided that you have the money), is quite low, especially when considering Koenigsegg’s international market focus.
