The Koenigsegg Gemera is the world’s fastest family car

Koenigsegg has never been shy in its ambitions and now the company claims to have created an entirely new category of car. The Koenigsegg Gemera is billed as the world’s first Mega-GT, a car for four people and their luggage with well in excess of 1,000bhp and better environmental credentials than a pure EV when its internal combustion engine is run on biofuel. Koenigsegg does come up with some wacky creations.


The Gemera is powered by the company’s camshaft-less 2.0-litre, three-cylinder twin-turbo Freevalve engine, nicknamed the TFG or ‘Tiny Friendly Giant’. This alone produces 600bhp and 600Nm (442lb ft) of torque. Three electric motors – one for each rear wheel and another on the engine’s crankshaft – take total outputs to 1,700bhp and 3,500Nm (2,580lb ft).


This means four people, each with heated and cooled cupholders, in-car internet, front and rear infotainment, wireless phone charging and memory foam seats can be shot to 62mph in 1.9 seconds on the way to 248mph. Zero to sixty-two in one point nine seconds. All-wheel-drive, torque vectoring and rear-wheel-steering are all on hand to rein in and direct the surfeit of power.


Recognisably a Koenigsegg from the fighter-pilot style wraparound windscreen, floating roof and general air of otherworldliness. Koenigsegg’s trademark doors are also present but are extra-long in order to provide access to the back seat and dubbed Koenigsegg Automated Twisted Synchrohelix Actuation Doors (KATSAD).

Just 300 Koenigsegg Gemeras will be built. Surely there can’t be a more economical and faster way of propelling you and your family towards the horizon?
