Many of you may know that Koernigsegg is not your average manufacturer. The company is filled with forward thinking individuals consistently pushing the envelope. In short they're off their head. The cars they're building are beyond innovative and are getting better and better every year.
The Koernigsegg Jesko Absolut is one of them, it looks like something out of a Tron movie. A true MegaCar Running a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 generating 1280 horsepower and 1106 lb-ft of torque on pump gas. On E85, output jumps to 1600 horsepower. Koenigsegg claims that the engine features the world's lightest V-8 crankshaft.
It's said that it could reach speeds of up-to 331 mph (533 kph) so El Presidente Christian Koernigsegg said that this would be the last time they would create a production car this fast saying "The consequences are to dire". There were 125 built in the world, 83 were sold before the unveiling and the remainder sold in 5 days of release....
So then there is a little bit of a cherry added on top of this Swedish Chocolate Sundae. That cherry is The Gemera, It's a twin turbo - three cylinder that makes 600 horsepower. Koenigsegg calls the engine the Tiny Friendly Giant.
What’s even more unusual is that the Gemera doesn't have a camshaft. Instead, the engine uses technology from Koenigsegg’s sister company, Freevalve, with pneumatic actuators opening and closing each valve independently.
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. 10 examples of Koenigsegg’s new Gemera four-seat hypercar have been confirmed for Australian and New Zealand shores. 
Nuts.
