Koenigsegg has unveiled the Client Specification Gemera, a groundbreaking Megacar that sets new industry benchmarks. Alongside this remarkable vehicle, the renowned Swedish automaker synonymous with innovation and extraordinary performance has inaugurated the Gripen Atelier, a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the Gemera lineup and future models. This milestone marks a new era in automotive engineering and showcases Koenigsegg’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of performance, power, and design.
Covering an impressive 11,000 square meters, the Gripen Atelier serves as the birthplace of the Gemera and other upcoming models. This facility expands Koenigsegg’s total footprint to 30,000 square meters, housing development, design, production, office, and showroom spaces. The Gripen Atelier empowers Koenigsegg to efficiently nurture and evolve the Gemera program alongside its existing two-seater lineup, enhancing their ability to bring cutting-edge vehicles to the market.
Christian von Koenigsegg, the visionary founder and CEO of Koenigsegg, expressed his excitement about inaugurating the Gripen Atelier and introducing the Client Specification Gemera. This remarkable Megacar builds upon the already awe-inspiring Gemera, offering numerous updates and enhancements that set new standards within the industry. As the world’s first four-seater Megacar, the Gemera captivated enthusiasts with its extraordinary power, exceeding 1 megawatt. However, the Client Specification version takes it even further with pioneering advancements.
Initially, the Gemera’s plan included the integration of the Koenigsegg Direct Drive system, which showcased its efficiency, power, and drivability in the Regera program. However, during the development process, Koenigsegg introduced the Light Speed Transmission (LST) in the acclaimed Jesko model, which delivered unparalleled excitement and performance. The LST’s ability to enhance driver engagement and exhilaration by removing the flywheel and clutch from the engine prompted Koenigsegg to explore new development paths.
Christian von Koenigsegg explains that the team couldn’t resist incorporating the remarkable features and benefits of the LST into the Gemera production model. Thus, the Light Speed Tourbillon Transmission (LSTT) was born. Complementing the LSTT is the “Dark Matter” E-motor, an 800 hp, 1250 Nm patent-pending Raxial Flux E-motor—an evolutionary leap in electric propulsion. With these advancements, the Gemera achieves a maximum output of 1400 hp and 1850 Nm, delivering even more engaging and exhilarating performance.
In addition to the Client Specification Gemera, Koenigsegg announced the Gemera HV8 (Hot V8) version. This variant goes beyond the realms of a Hypercar or Megacar, combining the magnificent sound, responsiveness, and power of the Jesko V8 with the innovative engineering of the Gemera. The Gemera HV8 boasts an astonishing 1500 hp from the HV8 engine, alongside the 800 hp provided by the Dark Matter E-motor. This brings the total output to an unprecedented 2,300 hp and 2,750 Nm of torque, setting a new world record for a production car.
The Gemera HV8 represents the most powerful and extreme production car on Earth, boasting a remarkable 1,111 hp per kg power-to-weight ratio. Despite its extraordinary performance, the megacar remains practical and user-friendly, offering exceptional response, handling, engine sound, a crisp transmission, a spacious interior, and advanced four-wheel-drive systems.
As Koenigsegg prepares to commence production at the end of 2024, the Gemera promises to deliver an unparalleled driving experience, setting new records of performance both on and off the track.
