Koenigsegg designer reveals how different the Gemera could have looked

The designer behind the Koenigsegg Gemera has shared fascinating early sketches and 3D renders of the four-seater hybrid "megacar" that wowed the world when it made its debut earlier this month. The $1.7 million (AU$2.56 million) vehicle – which boasts three electric motors – is the first 'Mega-GT' in the world. Only 300 will be produced, with a mere 10 of those making it to the Australian market.

Jay Leno takes the Koenigsegg Regera for a drive - video

After sampling the manic and electric Tesla Roadster, Jay Leno has returned to good ol' combustion power in the latest instalment of Jay Leno's Garage. This week, he drives the Koenigsegg Regera with none other than Christian von Koenigsegg riding shotgun on the roads of Los Angeles. It's not completely 'old school', though. Power in the Regera comes from a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 partnered with three electric motors – one ahead of the crankshaft and two for each rear wheel.
