The Gemera is the first four-seater car built by Koenigsegg and the first to be powered by a compact engine. Power comes from a 2.0 litre Koenigsegg Tiny Friendly Giant (TFG) three-cylinder with 2 turbochargers camless piston engine driving the front wheels, rated at 447 kW (600 hp; 608 PS) and 600 N⋅m (443 lb⋅ft) of torque, as well as three electric motors (two at the rear and one at the front), with a combined peak output of 1,268 kW (1,700 hp; 1,724 PS) and 3,500 N⋅m (2,581 lb⋅ft) of torque. The given combined peak output is produced when the engine runs on E85 fuel. The engine uses a system of solenoids to activate the intake and exhaust valves instead of conventional camshafts. The engine also features cylinder deactivation with which it is claimed to be 20 percent more fuel efficient than a typical four-cylinder engine of the same displacement. According to Koenigsegg, the combustion engine weighs only 70 kg (150 lb).
The range on the 54 MJ (15 kWh) battery pack is claimed to be 50 km (31 mi) and while in hybrid mode the range extends to 1,000 km (621 mi). The engine can run on both E85 bio fuel and gasoline and has a titanium exhaust system manufactured by Akrapovič.
Being the first all-wheel-drive model, the Gemera has all-wheel steering and torque vectoring. In line with other Koenigsegg models, the chassis has a carbon fibre monocoque with aluminium sub-structures. The car features electronically adjustable ride height.
The main design feature of the Gemera is the lack of a B-pillar and two large dihedral doors which open forward to allow easier access to the leather upholstered four-seater cabin. Creature comforts include four heated and four cooled cup-holders, driver assistance systems, four touchscreens (two 13-inch central touchscreens along with two additional screens for the side and rear view cameras), infotainment system for the front and rear passengers, front and rear wireless phone chargers, Apple CarPlay, Wi-Fi connection, a three-zone climate system, electrically adjustable seats and a premium audio system with 11 speakers.
The Koenigsegg Gemera was added in the 2021 Spring Update as a high Class S car with the following rank statistics:
Similar to the Aspark Owl, Rimac C Two, and Bugatti Chiron, the Gemera's performance is rapid acceleration that comes at the cost of manuverability. While its drifting radius is decent, it has weak steering that forces it to drift or drift-boost early for corners that other cars would be capable with less steering input or at a later point.
While the Gemera can be upgraded to compete in the 305 mph / 490 kmh range of the Ford GT 2017, Rezvani Beast X, Ferrari 812 Superfast, and Lamborghini Terzo Millennio while having faster acceleration, its higher rank in the 1830 range means that it is more likely to be put into races with cars in the 1860 range that it may not be able to compete with.
