Koenigsegg is hosting a family reunion at Pebble Beach.
It's been over a year since the Koenigsegg Gemera and Jesko Absolut debuted in the aftermath of what was supposed to be the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. Since the show was canceled and closed to the public due to the pandemic, most automakers revealed new models online. Koenigsegg, on the other hand, debuted the Gemera and Jesko Absolut in the empty halls of the Geneva Motor Show during a surreal presentation.
Thankfully, these extraordinary hypercars will soon get the spotlight they deserve. In a post on social media, Koenigsegg has announced the Gemera and Jesko Absolut will make their US auto show debut at Monterey Car Week on August 13-15. This will be the first time the US public will be able to see Koenigsegg's latest hypercars in the metal.
"While our showcars has been touring over the Americas, it's been some time since many of us have been physically around to meet and speak with you - our beloved customers, fans and dealers," Koenigsegg wrote on social media. "We are super excited to be participating in Monterey Car Week."
While this will be the first time the Gemera has been showcased in America, a dealer in North Carolina is already selling a build slot. No pricing information for the build slot is available, but the Gemera will start at $1.7 million in the US. Powering Koenigsegg's first-ever four-seat hypercar is a 2.0-liter, twin-turbo and three electric motors producing a combined 1,703 horsepower and 2,581 lb-ft of torque.
Production will be limited to just 300 examples. The Jesko Absolut, on the other hand, is a more speed-focused version of the standard Jesko designed to break speed records. Effectively, it's Koenigsegg's answer to Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. With its extreme aero and a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 generating 1,280 hp and 1106 lb-ft, it should comfortably break the 300-mph barrier, and Christian von Koenigsegg previously told CarBuzz that it should be capable of 330.5 mph.
The show will be something of a family reunion for Koenigsegg as the Gemera and Jesko Absolut will be joined by a special Regera and CCR.
