Koenigsegg Gemera Is Already Listed For Sale In The US

No price is listed on Charlotte McLaren’s website, but Christian von Koenigsegg, the company’s founder and CEO, has previously said that the Gemera will start at $1.7 million US, and go up from there.

Expensive as that may be, the Koenigsegg Gemera might well go down as a significant, paradigm-shifting item in the annals of supercar history, thanks mostly to its twin-turbocharged, 2.0L three-cylinder “Tiny Friendly Giant” internal combustion engine. On its own, it makes up to a staggering 600 horsepower, and it’s capable of running an array of different fuels, thanks to its first-ever implementation of Freevalve camless valvetrain technology. That system uses electro-hydraulic-pneumatic actuators to actuate each intake and exhaust valve individually, handing full control over each valve’s timing, duration, and lift to a computer for maximum tuning flexibility.
