    Yuk!..That thing is ugly!

    I don't understand the uglier these ultra super hyper cars are the more people desire them...

    Love that interior though (mostly).

    I freaking love it. The 2+2 coupe design looks amazing and the exhaust coming out near the roof is a very cool way to treat something nice that is usually an afterthought.

    To give more substance to thread
    form Autoevolution

    As the Egg fans among you have probably noticed, the front end styling is a nod to CC, the Koenigsegg model that started it all back in 1996 - for the record, this was also the model used by kickstart the Koenigsegg Sketch Challenge, a social media stunt that saw former Bugatti designer Sasha Selipanov, who now serves the Swedish carmaker, inviting artists from all over the world to share their vision of the extreme-velocity brand.

    Speaking of which, this was a project Selipanov completed from the ground up - you'll find find the design sketch at the bottom of the page.

    This is a K machine, so you're all expecting jaw-dropping numbers. Well, here you go: 1.27 MW (1,727 PS) and 3,500 Nm, a 0 to 100 kph/62 mph time of 1.9 seconds a nicely rounded top speed of 400 kph/248 mph.

    And, if you've paid attention to the Regera hypercar-gone-GT, the source of all the muscle won't surprise you: we're talking about a hybrid setup. However, unlike in the case of the Regera, where the company's twin-turbo V8 dominates the gym, the Gemera's powertrain only packs a 2.0-liter three-cylinder motor.

    Dubbed a Tiny Friendly Giant (wait for it), the unit makes use of two turbos, while employing the company's trademark Freevalve technology (think: no cams), which the carmaker has been improving for years. As a result, it delivers 608 PS and 600 Nm of torque to the front axle. Koenigsegg even invites owners to bring the tank with second-generation ethanol of the CO2-neutral methanol, while your standard E85 will also do. The good old dinosaur juice? Here's what the press release says: "in worst case normal petrol".

    The rest of the powaaah comes from three electric motors (one for each rear wheel and one attached to the crankshaft). Their combined output of 800 kW/1,115 PS can push the car to 300 kph/186 mph without needing to wake up that tiny giant. We're talking about a 16.6 kWh battery and this is 800V hardware, which ensures a quick charge - we are told that the Gemera can deliver an electric range of up to 50 km/36 miles.
    So it also uses 3 cylinder camless engine (Freevalve technology)

    I would like to see them in racing. They need that to lift their name. But I am very impressed.

    Not really, very different philosophies. It’s like saying a Camaro would make a great GT -R
