Koenigsegg’s first four-seater, the Gemera ‘mega GT’ will be making its UK debut at this year’s Salon Privé at Blenheim Palace.
The Gemera – meaning ‘give more’ in Swedish – is unlike any other car on the road. Capable of hitting 62 mph in a Formula 1-rivalling 1.9 seconds, it is powered by 1700 bhp two-litre, three-cylinder engine named the ‘Tiny Friendly Giant’ – or TFG for short – is capable of running on conventional petrol as well as the latest renewable fuels.
Like the Regera, the Gemera’s engine is mated to a single-gear Direct Drive (KDD) transmission, but is also capable of running on electric power only for up to 31 miles, or just under 600 miles in a combined hybrid mode. Furthering the car’s capability is all-wheel drive, all-wheel steering and all-wheel torque vectoring.
Surface Transforms plc (LON:SCE) are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use. Koenigsegg nominated SCE as a tier one sole supplier on their Gemera car.
