Going behind the scenes with the Koenigsegg Gemera
At this year's sort of non-existent Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg unveiled the Gamera on an empty convention show floor in front of zero onlookers. But it’s safe to say they got ample of attention online with the car pretty much going viral on all forms of social media due to its blockbuster stats and its unique configuration, a four-seater hypercar. Koenigsegg has positioned it as the ultimate GT, or as they like to call it hyper GT, on sale right now. The company's founder Christian Von Koenigsegg said he had a vision for this four-seat layout way back 2003, and got to put it into physical form only this year. You can see the various iterations the company has gone through to come up with the final version showcased at Geneva.
Thanks to raw design houses' Instagram page, we got a little more insight into the thought process and evolution that went into this hypercar’s development. The brand's new designers Sasha Selipanov has showcased various 3-D renders as well as a couple of 2-D renders along with the whole technical package of the car, revealing the entire layout of this hyper GT.
You can also see some images from the company’s early days showing a four-seater version of a Koenigsegg said the four seat layout, and if you look closely you will notice that prototype has gullwing instead of the company's unique dihedral doors, a USP for its hypercars.
Also in the set of images, you can see various CAD 3D models that help you understand all that goes underneath the carbon-fibre skin of those sleek hypercars. The designer Sasha Selipanov already has some big-ticket designs in his portfolio, notably the Lamborghini Huracan and the Bugatti Chiron, so his interpretation of a four-seater hypercar GT has really turned out to be a masterpiece hence there has been so much praise online about the new Gemera's design.
Now to match those stellar designs, Koenigsegg has packed the Gamera with ample performance, including a massive 1700bhp hybrid motor to give this Hyper GT some stunning performance figures for a car that can seat four people. Production for this hypercar begins in 2021 and there is already a two-year waiting list for it.
