New Koenigsegg Hemera revealed as 1700bhp four-seat hybrid

Koenigsegg Gemera front Swedish hypercar manufacturer releases the most practical model with roomy interior and segment-leading performance

And Koenigsegg showed the Gemer as a very powerful four-seater that promises the Swedish firm's trademark combination of sophistication and linear pace.

The surprise new model is described as a 'mega GT', and, unlike everything else in the Koenigsegg line-up, it claimed four adult passengers in comfort with ample luggage space.

As the Yesco brand's flagship hypercar, the Gemera is powered by a high-capacity electrified powertrain that promises to push the quad from 0-62mph in just 1,9 seconds and reach a top speed of around 250mph.

The combustion element powertrain includes a relatively small 2,0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine. Despite its size though, it's produces an impressive 600 bhp. With. and 443lb ft thanks to a pair of substantial turbochargers and the use of innovative 'valve-free' technology that replaces the camshaft with actuators that operate the valves.

The engine, nicknamed the 'Tiny Kind Giant' by the Koenigsegg, and paired with a trio of powerful electric motors - one in each rear wheel and one in a pair of crankshafts - for a combined total output of 1700bhp, making it one of the most powerful hybrids in production.

The Gemera can run in pure electric mode at speeds up to 186 miles per hour, and is said to be able to cover 31 miles of gasoline power.

The company says that while it can run on regular gasoline, the Gemera is "as good as a clean electric vehicle" when using ethanol or CO2-neutral methanol.

The Gemera's 3000mm wheelbase allows for high-rolling refinement at high speeds, but the car has also been designed to offer useful dynamics when cornering fast.

The rear wheel feature is a feature allowing for better control at speed and turning, which is claimed to be on par with much less.

Although it is different from anything previously produced, the Hemera offers styling cues that tie it in with current and historical models such as the Regera and Agera. Front end styling, for example, is closely related to Koenigsegg's first model CC prototype, which evolved into the production car of the CC8S - one of the most powerful cars of its time.

Wraparound windshields, short overhangs and gaping side air intakes hint at the car's performance potential, while full-length lambo doors allow for all-around improved visibility and easier entry and exit.

The Gemera was designed to be sold worldwide, with a full airbag system, an advanced driver's kit and a crash-resistant central monocoque, but only 300 copies would be produced. Official prices have yet to be confirmed, but the car is likely to top £1m given its exclusive status and impressive features.
