Car Of The Day: Koenigsegg Gemera

This is not only a hypercar, is more than that, is perhaps the fastest, more accesible Koenigsegg car ever made, it is: a family hypercar. Yes a F A M I L Y hypercar.

Why is that so?

It is a 1700HP car, that reaches 0 to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds, with a 2.0L-3 cylinder engine that offers 600 HP @ 610 Nmplus 3 electric motors that give 3525Nm in total. With 4 seats4 compartments for luggage, and 2 touchscreens for front and rear passangers, plus additional heating and cooling for the cup holders, and much more.

Is the Koenigsegg Gemera a response to Koenigsegg customers who want to share their hypercar with their loved ones? I’m not sure of that, because I think it’s a very impractical car for a trip with your family (especially for kids), but I believe is a pretty fancy way to make a roadtrip with your friends.

But the Gemera’s design is an evolution from the previous models of the brand, which are more traditional. This design embraces minimalism while been fun and practical at the same time, I supose, Koenigsegg learned something from the Teslas.

The coolest feature it has is ‘the orb’: an spherical 2-side camera in the center of the front panel that literally floats and spins at the same time all the time:

I really like this car, I am not a big fan of the Koenigsegg previous designs (although I am a really big fan of their approach to engineering), but the Gemera is I think a fantastic invention, the perfect intersection between a hypercar and a luxury car.

I enjoyed this design, and I think Doug DeMauro makes an excellent introspection of the car, you should suscribe to his Youtube channel.
