3,000 horsepower of Swedish might is proudly on display.
The coronavirus pandemic may have canceled the 2020 Geneva Motor Show last month, but that didn't stop Koenigsegg from presenting two new insanely fast supercars. While many automakers debuted new models online, Koenigsegg presented the new Gemera and Jesko Absolut at the empty Geneva Motor Show, which was surreal to watch. To whet our appetite even more, Koenigsegg has shared some new photos of the Gemera and Jesko Absolut being put through their paces at the company's runway track near its headquarters in Angelholm, Sweden.
The Gemera is the Swedish automaker's first ever four-seater hypercar that delivers the insane level of performance we've come to expect from Koenigsegg with added practicality. Unlike the Agera RS and Regera, this is a car you can use for family road trips.
There's enough room to comfortably seat four occupants and their luggage, while front and rear passengers can be entertained thanks to infotainment displays in the front and back. You also won't find eight cupholders in any other Koenigsegg.
Despite its unconventional layout, the Gemera is still recognizable as a Koenigsegg since it retains the automaker's signature short overhangs, large side air intakes, and wraparound windshield. Powering the Gemera is a plug-in hybrid setup that uses three electric motors and a turbocharged three-cylinder engine to produce a combined 1,677 horsepower and 2,581 lb-ft of torque.
That's enough power to enable the Gemera to hit 0-62 mph in just 1.9 seconds before maxing out at 248 mph. As for the price, the Gemera starts at an eye-watering $1.7 million.
The Jesko Absolut, on the other hand, has the potential to become the fastest production car in the world. Like the regular Jesko, power is sourced from a twin-turbo V8 engine producing 1,600 horsepower, but aero enhancements have resulted in a drag coefficient of just 0.278. Koenigsegg hasn't made any performance claims yet, but Christian von Koenigsegg is confident the Jesko Absolut can achieve 330 mph, which would smash the 277 mph speed record set by the Agera RS.
