Koenigsegg Gemera prototype ready for testing

We’ve seen the Koenigsegg Gemera before, but only as a concept car, production isn’t planned before 2023, and it is introduced as the world’s first MEGA-GT, this is an ultra-high performance hypercar that can seat four people and take their luggage with it at the same time … and it still shows those traditional Koenigsegg dihedral synchro-helix actuation doors to access the spacious cabin.

Power comes from a 2-Liter 3-cylinder engine, developed by Koenigsegg and its sister company, Freevalve, this ‘Tiny Friendly Giant’ is future-proofed given its extreme performance, reduced fuel consumption, and lowered emissions, and it can run on second-generation CO2 neutral renewable fuels, but the Gemera is a Hybrid, adding 3 electric motors, one on each of the rear wheels, and an additional one on the crankshaft, boasting a 50 km (31 mi) electric range, total power output is a massive 1,700 hp.

And while we’ve seen the first production prototype in a ‘behind the scenes‘ video made during a visit of the Koenigsegg Automotive AB in Ängelholm, Sweden, there was still a lot of work to be done before that car would be driveable … but time has passed, and Christian is now ready to reveal some more information and actually drive the prototype, still at low rpm as the car is in her very early stages, but thanks to the Gemera being a four-seater hyper GT, there is space for three engineers to accompany the driver during stress testing to dial in all the minute configurations required to make this beauty ready for production.

So please enjoy this first video of the Koenigsegg Gemera being driven:
