Koenigsegg has created a 1727-strong family megacar with a three-cylinder engineMarch 3, 2020
The Swedish company Koenigsegg held a press conference where it introduced two new models: the fast Jesko Absolute and the first four-seater megacar Gemera in the brand’s history. It is equipped with a two-liter biturbo engine with FreeValve technology, three electric motors, four-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering wheels.
The “family” Koenigsegg Gemera has four seats and two luggage racks – front and rear. The power plant of the novelty is built on the basis of a TFG 2.0 biturbomotor with three cylinders, a dry sump lubrication system and FreeValve technology. Such an engine does not have camshafts, the role of which is played by pneumohydroelectric valve actuators (PHEA).
Turbo three-cylinder engine produces 608 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque, and three electric motors help it: two on each of the rear wheels and one on the crankshaft. Transmission – branded KDD, consisting of a hydraulic clutch with a variable degree of slipping and the main gear with a constant gear ratio.
In total with the internal combustion engine, they give out 1727 forces and 3500 Nm of torque, accelerating the mid-engined Gemera to one hundred in 1.9 seconds. The maximum speed of a megacar is limited to 400 kilometers per hour.
Electric motors are powered by a 800-volt battery for 16.6 kilowatt-hours, which allows you to drive up to 50 kilometers on electric traction and accelerate up to 300 kilometers per hour without starting a “turbo-three-cylinder engine”. Gemera is equipped with all-wheel drive with traction vector control on all wheels and a steering axle.
The FreeValve engine also offers flexibility in fuel selection. Megakar runs on second-generation bioethanol, CO₂-neutral methanol Vulcanol, alcohol mix E85 and regular gasoline. The total power reserve is 1000 kilometers.
The list of equipment Koenigsegg Gemera includes six “smart” security options, ABS, traction control, ISOFIX mounts for child seats on the second row, adaptive cruise control, entertainment system, wireless charging for gadgets, wi-fi, audio system with 11 speakers, four cooled and four heated cup holders.
The total circulation of Gemera will be 300 copies.
The second novelty, Jesko Absolute, is Jesko’s maximum speed-oriented track. The drag coefficient of the hypercar is 0.278 Cd. It is equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 with two ceramic-bearing turbochargers, which produces 1,280 horsepower with conventional fuel, 1,685 hp of E85 bioethanol, and a Light Speed Transmission (LST) robot with eight multi-plate clutches in an oil bath.
