Time for the next car from my collection, FrontiArt Koenigsegg Gemera.
The Gemera was presented in 2020 at the cancelled Geneva Motor Show in an online broadcast.
The Koenigsegg Gemera is a plug-in hybrid grand tourer it is the first 4 seater car from Koenigsegg.
It is powered by a 2.0 liter twin turbo 3 cylinder engine dubbed TFG, Tiny Friendly Giant, producing 600 bhp ( 447 kW) @ 7500 rpm and a redline @ 8500 rpm and a maximum torque of 600 Nm ( 443 lb-ft) @ 2000-7000 rpm.
The combustion engine does not have any camshafts instead it is using the Koenigsegg Freevalve system which uses solenoids to operate the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves individually.
The engine also has a cylinder deactivation system with which it is claimed to be 20% more fuel efficient than a typical 4 cylinder engine with the same displacement.
According to Koenigsegg the engine only weighs 70Kg (150 lb-ft).
The car also has 3 electric motors one at each rear wheel producing 500 bhp ( 372 kW) and a maximum torque of 1000 Nm ( 737 lb-ft) and 1 at the crankshaft producing 400 bhp ( 298 bhp) and a maximum torque 500 Nm ( 368 lb-ft).
And since this is a Koenigsegg they have a rather unconventional way to drive the car because the the rear-mid mounted combustion engine is actually powering the front wheels together with 1 electric motor and the 2 remaining electric motors are powering the rear wheels.
The combined peak output is 1700 bhp ( 1268 kW) and a maximum torque of 3500 Nm ( 2581 lb-ft).
Max wheel torque is 11000 Nm (8113 lb-ft) @ ICE 4000 rpm.
1100 bhp ( 820 kW) of combined electric power (counting E-motors separately-1400 bhp ( 1043 kW).
The range of the 54 MJ (15 kWh) battery pack is claimed to be 50 km (31 miles) and in hybrid mode the range is 1000 km ( 621 miles).
The Gemeras transmission is a single speed Koenigsegg Direct Drive which is the same technology first used in the Regera.
The engine can run on E85 and on gasoline and it is also possible to run the engine on something called Vulcanol which is a synthetic fuel made of recycled carbon dioxide from a volcano in Iceland.
It is basically renewable methanol and the Octane rating is 109 RON compared to 95 RON for standard gasoline.
I was not able to create a link to more information about this technology but the company is called "Carbon Recycling International" if you want to know more about Vulcanol.
Koenigsegg Gemera is the companys first all wheel drive modeland it also have 4 wheel steering and torque vectoring.
It has a carbon fibre moncoque with aluminium sub structures.
Performance: 0-100 km/h (0-62 mp/h) @ 1.9 sec.
Top speed: 400 km/h ( 249 mp/h).
In eletric mode the top speed is 300 km/h ( 186 mp/h).
Production is planned to start in 2022 and the production run is set to 300 cars.
Time for some pics, and i don´t have any pics of the real car:
And some personal thoughts of the model.
Since i have not seen the real car in person i cannot say how the model stacks up to the real thing but after seeing the pics and videos posted online i woulkd say that FrontiArt has done a really good job reproducing the car.
The paint job is smooth and as far as i know without any issues.
Wheels and tires are really good complete with tire markings and the brakes is also good.
The interior is really striking with all the details such as screens and steering wheel.
Thanks for watching.
