Koenigsegg Gemera: The Ultimate Four-Seater Megacar

Koenigsegg Gemera: The Ultimate Four-Seater Megacar

Review of the Koenisegg Gemera

Dream Car: "A dream car is a car that satisfies wish fulfillment." Any Koenigsegg by default falls into that category. The out-of-this-world price and stellar performance are elements we all dream of when thinking about dream cars. And then Koenigsegg made the Gemera.

What is the Koenigsegg Gemera?

The Gemera is the first hyper-family car. According to Koenigsegg, it's even beyond hypercar status and into the "megacar" world. They call it a Mega-GT. And I find it hard to argue with this four-seater masterpiece, designed to combine practicality and sheer performance.

The Gemera is to hypercars what the Porsche Panamera and the Aston Martin Rapide were to the world of supercars. An innovative way to introduce four-seaters for the super rich that doesn't compromise the sensations of exquisite luxury and high performance. The Gemera is a first of its kind. And let's face it, in this segment of +$1 million cars, I doubt we'll see other competitors join the club.

Engine & Performance

Ah! This is where things get interesting. Koenigsegg is known as one of the fastest manufacturers on the road. They've proven their worth with cars like the Regera and the Jesko.

The Gemera comes in 2 versions. A 'tamed' TFG version and a fully unleashed one! 


  • The 'Dark Matter' E-motor drivetrain that produces 800hp.
  • The twin-turbo TFG (Tiny Friendly Giant) drivetrain. The TFG is an inline 3-cylinder engine that produces 600hp.

The pairing brings their combined output to nothing short of 1400hp and 1850 Nm of torque. Sounds very Koenigsegg, doesn't it?

However, then there's version 2

  • A 5L twin-turbo Hot V8 that has a ridiculous power output of no less than 1500 hp with 1500 Nm of torque.
  • Combine that with the Dark Matter E-motor's 800hp and you'll end up with a total power output of 2300 hp and 2750 Nm of torque.

Yes, you just read that correctly… 2300 horses… in a four-seater. That's by any means a production car record.

All of this is fed to a 9-speed multi-clutch gearbox through the "LSTT" or Light Speed Tourbillon Transmission four-wheel drive system. It uses four-wheel drive and torque vectoring to get as much power down as possible.

The battery of the Dark Matter E-motor is a competent 14kWh battery pack that's been designed and produced by Koenigsegg themselves.

Performance figures will be earth-shattering, with 0-60mph times promised to be sub 2 seconds.


From the first launch, it was apparent that the Gemera would be a stunning piece of machinery. Not only technically but in terms of design. Koenigsegg is one of the few manufacturers on earth that doesn't resemble another rival or sister car. Their flow is unique and exciting, to say the least.

Let's start on the outside, shall we? The Gemera is arguably one of the most beautiful cars ever designed. Fair enough, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but if you don't consider this a stunning piece of art, well… you're wrong. When the Gemera was first announced in 2020, it instantly became a hit among car enthusiasts all over the world.

According to CEO Christian von Koenigsegg, the goal was to make the Gemera a four-seater without compromising the dimensions of a regular hypercar. That meant squeezing two adult-sized seats in the back without making the car wider or larger than you'd expect from something like a Jesko or LaFerrari.

Apart from the obvious technical challenges, Koenigsegg was able to make the impossible a reality through smart engineering and innovative tech. One of the standout design features are no doubt the doors. Their unique B-pillarless design allows full access to both front and rear seats.

Handling & Comfort

The Chassis of the Gemera is composed of a carbon fiber monocoque. It further includes adjustable and lightweight anti-roll bars front and rear, robotized hydraulically adjustable ride height front and rear, and Koenigsegg safety cell with integrated crumple zones.

The body itself is a two-door coupe with easy access to the two rear seats. And composed mostly of carbon fiber.

Put everything together, and you'll get a power-to-weight ratio of 1.11. It's sure to be a sweet handling brute that'll be competent no matter what you throw at it.

But the Gemera isn't all about performance and incredible figures. A clear focus for Koenigsegg was comfort. The Gemera is supposed to be, after all, a four-seater saloon. To get to that level of comfort, Koenigsegg has included features such as four-wheel drive, adaptive cruise control, lane assist, dead angle detection, park assist, and self-parking. All things you'd expect on any well-equipped saloon car. Great!

That's good for the driver, but the passengers get treated too. With a luxury, customizable interior and bucket seats, it'll be quite an experience wafting about in the $1.7 million megacar. Adding to the experience is a unique B-pillarless design, which means the side windows extend all the way from front to back.
The four bucket seats are heated and electronically adjustable. 

Overall, the Koenisegg comes with every feature you'd want in a daily driver, things like Apple CarPlay, phone chargers, heated and coled cup holders, ... you name it! 


Yes ... I can't believe I even have to mention this. But the Gemera is in fact practical too! It has 200L luggage space, which (according to Koenisegg) should accomodate 4 full sized carry-ons. 

The 115L fuel tank should be plenty for long trips. Speaking of which, the Gemera even comes with roof rack mounts for your skis.
