Agera means “to take action” in Swedish. It is also short for the ancient Greek word Ageratos which means “ageless”.
These are both suitable descriptors for this incredible and beautiful machine. The Agera featured a unique 7 speed transmission with a E-diff and wet clutch functionality developed by Koenigsegg, a transmission that truly enhanced performance and handling.
The Agera was the first model to feature the Koenigsegg developed VGR wheels. They are real air turbines, increasing the downforce of the car by measurable amounts and improving brake cooling. All four wheels are individual so that turbine blades always face the correct direction for extraction. Given that the offset and width is different front to rear, all four wheels have their own unique design. The VGR wheels are forged and then fully machined to the final shape. All excess material is removed during the forging and machining process, thus minimizing weight whilst displaying outstanding levels of stiffness.
The CCX and CCXR both had supercharged engines, which at the time was the superior solution. However, turbo technology had come a long way and the downside of turbo lag was starting to become almost nonexistent, if engineered properly. The problem with turbo engines, high power and emission control was that the catalytic converters caused a lot of back pressure at high power levels. These back pressures were elevated through the turbo and into the exhaust ports of the engine, thereby causing what is called hot EGR. Hot EGR is a source for detonation knocking. To alleviate this problem, Christian came up with an ingenious solution by placing the pre-cat behind the waste gate instead of the turbo, thereby reducing the back pressure with a factor of 3. This simple solution gave 300 hp extra power and was a worthy successor of the Rocket cat invented and developed by Christian almost 10 years earlier.
It also meant that the Agera could deliver torque, power and response to match much larger engines at a fraction of their weight, making it extremely competitive.
There is no need to move or recline the front seats in order to get in and out of the rear row. This is made possible through the Koenigsegg Automated Twisted Synchrohelix Actuation Doors (KATSAD), that opens the full interior without the obstruction of B-pillars. The KATSAD has a very small opening footprint, which allows effortless access even when parked with limited surrounding space. The Gemera’s B-pillarless door system, coupled with the KATSAD, creates a completely new type of four-seater megacar – one that does not compromise anybody’s comfort and treats all four passengers with an equal amount of respect – also when getting in and out of the car.
THE GEMERA’S B-PILLARLESS DOOR SYSTEM
The door openings reveal an impressive four-seater space that boasts equal ease of access, comfort and respect for both front and rear passengers.

Koenigsegg’s patented dihedral synchro-helix doors are even more dramatic in this car, as they are much longer. The doors still open with the same tiny footprint as the added length of the door only makes it stand taller in its open position. That is the beauty of Christian von Koenigsegg’s door solution – it kind of magically disappears and is unobtrusive.
The newly developed Tiny Friendly Giant engine (TFG), is coupled to the proven and patented electrified Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD) first pioneered in the Regera – a combination providing ultimate response from standstill to top speed in the form of a single gear direct drive. The result is a combined output of 1700 bhp and 3500 Nm of torque. The Gemera comes equipped with a small 800V battery, allowing it to travel up to 50 km in EV only mode and an additional 950 km in highway cruise speed in hybrid mode, before needing a fill-up – totaling a range of 1000 km.
The Koenigsegg Gemera´s engine is small. At the same time, it is big when it comes to power, torque and sound. Still, it is small when it comes to emissions and consumption. In short – it is a contradiction of an engine, developed and created by Koenigsegg and its sister company, Freevalve. Therefore, it has been named the “Tiny Friendly Giant” – or TFG for short. Being a two-liter three-cylinder engine, the TFG is future-proofed given its extreme performance, reduced fuel consumption and lowered emissions – not to forget its ability to run on second-generation CO2 neutral renewable fuels.
