Is This Confirmation That Production Of The Koenigsegg Gemera Is Still Two Years Away?

We may have found the complete planned run of the Koenigsegg Gemera and it starts in mid-2022.


  • The Koenigsegg Gemera is the world’s first Mega-GT car.

  • It is a 1,700-horsepower and 2,581 lb.-ft of torque, 4-seater plug-in hybrid.

  • Depending on where you read, production of the car begins in 2020, 2021, or 2022.


The Koenigsegg Gemera, of all new models introduced so far in this messed-up 2020 calendar year, is arguably the most fascinating and drool-worthy. As though nothing, Christian von Koenigsegg unleashed the mind-boggling, ultra-sophisticated 4-seater 2-door mega-GT car from the canceled 2020 Geneva Motor show and we’re all still wobbling from the specifications. One detail that may not have been clear was when the car was to go into production. We may have found the answer.

5 Questions About the 2021 Koenigsegg Gemera Answered

Sometimes, the information we seek is not found where we think it should be. Case in point: In a press release sent less than a day ago, ceramic materials manufacturer Surface Transforms announced that it had been chosen as the sole supplier of carbon-ceramic brake discs for the Koenigsegg Gemera.

The important line is the following: “The lifetime value of the contract was in excess of £5m, with a start of production in mid-2022 completing in mid-2027.” And there you have it. Knowing that only 300 will be built, it is safe to assume that 60 will be assembled every year from the summer of 2022. It could also be safe to assume that the Gemera will bear the 2023 model year. Also, at “cost”, each Gemera will have £16,667 worth of brakes!

The weird thing is that there are at least two dealerships, one in Germany, and another, a McLaren dealer in North Carolina, are selling build slots and in one case, the 2021 model year is clearly stated… Who’s telling the truth?
