But it's technically the cheapest car in Koenigsegg's lineup.
As you probably already know by now, the 2020 Geneva Motor Show was canceled at the last minute due to the coronavirus outbreak. This meant many automakers were unable to debut new models at the show and held online press conferences instead. But not Koenigsegg.
In an eerily empty hall, Koenigsegg debuted the Jesko Absolut and Gemera at its Geneva stand as planned. The Koenigsegg Gemera is the automaker's first-ever four-seater "Mega-GT" combining extreme performance with crisp comfort and practicality. Think of it as a more family- friendly Koenigsegg. While Koenigsegg shared many details about the Gemera including its impressive technical specifications, one detail that was kept under wraps was the price - until now.
Top Gear managed to get a first look at the Gemera in the metal at the abandoned Geneva show and quizzed company founder Christian von Koenigsegg about the price tag.
Koenigsegg confirmed the Gemera will start at an eye-watering $1.7 million. That makes it the cheapest Koenigsegg when compared to the Regera ($2 million), Agera RS ($2.5 million), and Jesko ($2.8 million), but it's still extremely expensive. Compared to its siblings, the Gemera will also be built in greater numbers. Only 80 units of the Regera were made and they all sold out fast, while the Jesko was limited to 125 examples. By contrast, 300 examples of the Gemera will roll off the production line.
While the Koenigsegg Gemera is more practical than the Regera and Jesko, don't think Koenigsegg is skimping on the performance.
Powering the Gemera are three electric motors producing a combined 1,100 hp and a 2.0-liter, three-cylinder dry-sumped twin-turbo Freevalve engine with 600 horsepower. Combined, this setup produces a monumental 1,727 horsepower and 2,581 lb-ft of torque, enabling the Gemera to accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 1.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 248 mph. The Gemera can also run on electric power up to 186 mph and be driven for up to 31 miles in EV mode thanks to an 800V battery.
