Koenigsegg has been producing high-performance automobiles for more than 25 years. During the early years of Koenigsegg Automotive, Jesko von Koenigsegg (first Chairman of the Koenigsegg board) was a crucial figure.
His great commercial acumen aided the organization in navigating many of its early problems. Jesko von Koenigsegg, now retired and in his 80s, and his wife, Brita, were in attendance at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show to see the global premiere of his eponymous car.
Some koenigsegg models
In March 2020, the Koenigsegg Gemera made it’s global premiere. It’s the world’s first Mega-GT and the first four-seater from Koenigsegg.
The Gemera is one of 300 automobiles in a limited edition. It’s an extreme mega-car with a roomy cabin and the highest level of environmental awareness.
Until recently, ultimate performance confined to the realm of often two-seaters with extremely little baggage space, explains Christian von Koenigsegg, CEO and creator.
The Gemera is an entirely new type of vehicle, combining high mega-car performance with a large cabin and the best possible environmental performance.
This new Mega-GT comfortably seats four big individuals, with space for their carry-on baggage, enabling the Koenigsegg mega-car experiences to be enjoyed with friends and family.
The Gemera’s main focus is still on long-distance public highways – family trips in elegance, grace, and protection with never-before-seen performance.
The Gemera, while being a four-seater, significantly outperforms most two-seat mega-cars, both combustion and electric.
The Gemera accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 1.9 seconds and reaches 400 km/h in record time, thanks to its 1.27 megawatts of power and 3500 NM of torque.
The roar of its massive Free valve 3-cylinder engine is outstanding.
Jesko is named after Jesko von Koenigsegg, the father of Christian von Koenigsegg, the company’s founder and CEO.
At the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, Koenigsegg introduced the Koenigsegg Jesko, an all-new megacar. Jesko takes on the mantle of the Agera RS as the premier track-focused, road-legal car for individuals seeking the pinnacle of vehicle performance.
It has over 1000kg of downforce thanks to advanced aerodynamics.
A modified 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 1280 horsepower on regular gasoline and 1600 horsepower on E85 biofuel.
The innovative 9-speed Koenigsegg Light Speed Transmission is a game changer (LST).
Carbon fibre chassis that has also been redesigned to provide increased legroom, headroom, and view.
In Swedish, ‘Regera’ means ‘to reign.’ The Koenigsegg Regera continues this legacy, providing the driver with a wide range of practical amenities as well as incredible speed and a yet another straightforward drive experience.
It sounds like the Regera from Koenigsegg and can speed from 150 to 250 km/h in 3.2 seconds or 0 to 400 km/h in less than 20 seconds.
Though some previous Koenigsegg vehicles have always been luxurious, the company’s principal goal has remained the same: to create the world’s fastest automobiles.
This supercar is powered by a strong twin-turbo V8 engine, three electric motors, and Koenigsegg’s Direct Drive powertrain technology.
Last but not least, Regera is lighter and more efficient, with a mind-blowing torque of 2000 Nm.
