Until challengers like Rimac, SSC, and Hennessey Performance can actually deliver their forthcoming hypercars, Bugatti and Koenigsegg look set to rule the roost. Bugatti made huge headlines by cracking the 300-mile-per-hour barrier with the Chiron, while Koenigsegg hopes to do the same with the Jesko. But where Bugatti seems to have set the future on a never-ending run of increasingly expensive Chiron variants (and the Chiron is basically a Veyron variant), Koenigsegg has decided to diversify. One new product and concept for Koenigsegg is a more practical supercar, the Gemera, which stars in a new video featuring Christian von Koenigsegg cramming four six-foot-tall men into the two-door tourer.

The Man Himself

Giving a once-over to everything that makes the Gemera such a radical departure from Koenigsegg's previous supercars would take longer than the video's nine-and-a-half minutes. For starters, there's the groundbreaking twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter three-cylinder engine, which has no cams paired with a trio of electric motors to produce 1,700 horsepower and 2,581 lb-ft of torque.

That three-banger is mounted behind the passenger compartment and powers the front wheels through a motor-generator and a single-speed direct-drive system rather than a gearbox. Two separate electric motors power the rear wheels. The layout allows for an enormous interior, despite the car's small size—as seen in the screenshot above.

The Tall Crew

Now compare Christian von Koenigsegg to the four other guys that are set to cram into the tiny Gemera—he looks smaller next to them than the car did next to him! And yet, despite the fact that all of the guys stand over 2 meters tall (that's well above six feet, actually), they all seem to squeeze in with little discomfort. Whether they'll still feel cozy as the Gemera launches into a 0-60 mph sprint (which should only take a claimed 1.9 seconds) or at the car's top speed of 249 miles per hour is another question. But at the very least, they'll have plenty of cupholders.
