Koenigsegg Australia has today confirmed that its recently-debuted Gemera will be coming to Australia, and that half of them have already been snatched up.

Of the 300 to be built, Australia was able to secure 10 examples of the US$1.7 million (AU$2.56 million) plug-in hybrid “mega-GT” and, as of this afternoon, five have already been spoken for.

“At this stage there are five sold, five remaining,” Shaun Baker, general manager of Koenigsegg Australia, told CarAdvice.

The Gemera was scheduled for a 2020 Geneva motor show debut, however the event was cancelled due to concerns surrounding coronavirus, with Koenigsegg instead opting for an online showcase.

Billed as an “entirely new category of megacar”, the four-seater Gemera produces 1270kW and 3500Nm thanks to a hybrid system comprising an 800-volt battery, three electric motors and a 2.0-litre, twin-turbocharged, three-cylinder engine.

It can be driven completely silent up to 300km/h in EV mode and offers 50km of electric-only range.

Koenigsegg claims the model will sprint from 0-100km/h in 1.9 seconds towards a top speed of 400km/h, all while offering six airbags, a reversing camera and ISOFIX points for baby seats in the back.
