It does not only comply with the regulatory standards in various regions, but also complies with China’s current latest emission standards.

The Shanghai showroom incorporates Koenigsegg’s latest corporate design, demonstrates the unique brand language characterized by Scandinavian simplicity and minimalism. Located in the heart of bustling Jian’An District of Shanghai, the new showroom forms an integral part of Kingsway Apex, the hypercar dedicated division of Kingsway Group. With the inauguration of Shanghai showroom, it marks a brand new page for Koenigsegg in Chinese market.

“The notion behind Gemera’s name – a combination of the two Swedish words – “ge” (give) and “mera” (more) signifies “to give more”. A suitable name for a car that adds features and functions without taking away anything that makes it a true megacar.” says Mr. Christian von Koenigsegg, founder and CEO of Koenigsegg. “It is our great pleasure to couple with Kingsway Apex to introduce the all-new Koenigsegg Showroom in Shanghai, and bring an extraordinary brand experience to our clients in China.”

Gemera is the first Koenigsegg model officially introduced to China after Kingsway Group became the exclusive importer and dealer of Koenigsegg in Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong and Macau. “Koenigsegg represents the pinnacle of performance hyper car and sets numbers of emblematic world records. It is a great privilege of Kingsway Apex, the hypercar division of Kingsway Group, to partner with Koenigsegg and provide a reliable platform with excellent service to our customers in China.” says Mr. Albert Wong, Director of Kingsway Group.

Hypercars continues to capture automotive enthusiasts’ attention via their uniqueness. Ultra-limited hypercars are always the highly desirable collectibles because of their scarcity therefore the value appreciates continuously.

After the official launch of Gemera, a series of private viewing will be conducted at the Koenigsegg Showroom in Shanghai. As one of the rare hypercars, Gemera is designed to meet the current regulatory standards in various regions; it is limited to an edition of only 300 cars.

Ultimate performance
Since the birth of the company more than 25 years ago, Koenigsegg has been driven to create the ultimate performance car.

This new Mega-GT seats four large adults comfortably with space catering to their carry-on luggage, meaning the Koenigsegg megacar experience can be shared with family and friends. Despite being four-seater, the Gemera easily outperforms most two-seat megacars, both combustion and electric. Still, the focus of the Gemera is taking on long-range public roads – family trips. In comfort, style and safety with never-before-experienced performance.

With its 1.27 megawatts of power and 3500 Nm of torque, the Gemera goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 1.9 seconds and to 400 km/h in record matching pace.

The Gemera comes with an evocative and deep-throated growl from its large displacement Freevalve 3-cylinder engine.

Creature comforts
As the first in a new segment the Gemera Mega-GT is set to impress with its everyday usability and creature comforts. How about 4 cold and 4 warm cup holders, front and rear central infotainment display, front and rear wireless phone chargers, Apple CarPlay, On board internet and Wi-Fi, 11 speaker state of the art sound system, exterior and interior cameras, 4 reading lights, memory foam heater seats, electric front seats, 3 climate zones, Autoskin plus much more.

The Tiny Friendly Giant
The Gemera yields a combined power output of 1700 bhp or 1.27 MW. The three electric motors – one for each rear wheel and one on the crankshaft of the engine – have a combined output of 800 kW or 1100 bhp simultaneously, or 1400 bhp when counted individually. On top comes 600 bhp and 600 Nm from the 2-liter 3-cylinder dry-sumped twin-turbo Freevalve engine, named the Tiny Friendly Giant (or TFG for short).

The TFG is a progressive outlook on the powertrains of tomorrow. The TFG offers a lighter, more efficient cradle-to-grave solution compared to any combustion engine before it.

The Gemera, if plugged in and filled with second-generation (Gen 2.0) ethanol or CO2-neutral methanol like Vulcanol or any mix thereof, becomes at least as CO2-neutral as a pure electric car running on a “goo” electric source. Before these second-generation renewable fuel sources are more accessible, the Gemera can also be driven on E85 and in worst case normal petrol.

Equipped with three electric motors, the Gemera can drive completely silent up to 300 km/h, and the powerful 800V battery gives a range of up to 50 km in EV mode.

All-wheel steering and torque vectoring
The 3000 mm wheelbase gives unprecedented comfort and straight-line stability. The rear-wheel steering makes sure the Gemera corners with agility and can achieve a turning radius only seen in smaller cars. At high speed, the rear-wheel steering also gives better directional control.

The mix of all-wheel steering and all-wheel torque vectoring gives limitless tunability and adaptability of steering and driving feel, making it possible for the Gemera to be one of the most fun and safe cars on the planet.

Safety in focus
The Gemera is one of the safest megacar out there and it is designed for world-wide homologation. The Gemera has a very strong carbon fiber monocoque, six smart airbags, stability control, TC, ABS and an ADAS 2.5 assistant system. It lacks nothing in ultimate safety.

The all-wheel steering and all-wheel drive and all-wheel torque vectoring give the Gemera maximum opportunity to offer a safe, stable and exhilarating drive. ISOFIX is available for both rear seats.

100% four-seater, 100% Koenigsegg
The Gemera is the first of its kind in a completely new vehicle category. Still, it has clear ties to all previous Koenigsegg cars and their Swedish understated design roots.

The front design is inspired by the first-ever Koenigsegg prototype – the Koenigsegg CC from 1996. The Gemera features giant full-length Koenigsegg Automated Twisted Synchrohelix Actuation Doors (KATSAD) that open wide. The doors are unhindered by the absence of B-pillars, thanks to a strong carbon monocoque. The door opens to reveal an impressive four-seater space that boasts equal ease of access, comfort and respect for both front and rear passengers.

Limited edition
The Gemera is limited to an edition of 300 cars.
