Only 300 will be built, and expect it to cost somewhere in the region of €1.7m.

The new Koenigsegg Gemera is a family car. It has four seats, hot and cold cupholders, front and rear seat infotainment, wireless phone charging and the ability to store four adults’ carry-on luggage.

It has 1,700bhp, 2,580lb ft of torque, the ability to go from 0-62mph in 1.9s and up to 250mph in “record matching pace”. Christian von Koenigsegg himself describes the new Gemera as “a completely new category of car where extreme megacar meets spacious interior and ultimate environmental consciousness”.

The new Gemera features three electric motors – one on each rear wheel, and one on the crankshaft – that alone deliver 1,100bhp simultaneously. In EV, rear-drive mode, the Gemera can hit 186mph, and its 800V battery gives up to 31 miles of range.

Koenigsegg has added something called a Tiny Friendly Giant, which isn’t what you think it is, in more ways than one. It is a three-cylinder, twin-turbo 2.0-litre ‘Freevalve’ internal combustion engine that drives the front wheels, able to run on ethanol, or CO2-neutral methanol which makes it “at least as CO2-neutral as a pure electric car running on a ‘good’ electric source”.

The Gemera could probably withstand actually going through a wall, because we’re told it features a “very strong carbon fibre monocoque”. Other safety equipment comes in the form of six ‘smart’ airbags, traction control, stability control, ABS and advanced driver assistance systems.

Looks like a proper Koenigsegg too, doesn’t it? The front takes inspiration from the very first ‘Segg prototype (the CC), there’s the trademark fighter-jet wraparound windscreen, a 3m wheelbase with rear-wheel-steering, and really quite massive upwards-opening doors. ‘Koenigsegg Automated Twisted Synchrohelix Actuation Doors’ is the official description. Let’s just stick with the Really Quite Massive Upwards Opening Doors one. Koenigsegg has ditched the B-pillars for easier ingress and egress, and to be honest we’re still trying to work out the hows, the whys, the what-the-f and much more.
