The Koenigsegg Gemera is the first four-seater the company has ever produced, but that doesn't mean that it's less exclusive. Just 300 of the "Mega GT" will be made and it's likely the price tag will be over $1 million each.

Christian von Koeingsegg, the automaker's CEO, calls the model a Mega GT because it, "is a completely new category of car where extreme megacer meets spacious interior and ultimate environmental consciousness." The model is the culmination of 25 years of work.

In a release Koenigsegg says that the car seats four adults and can fit their carry-on luggage. It's worth noting that Koenigsegg is a Swedish car manufacturer and carry-on luggage in Scandinavia and Europe is typically much smaller than the American idea of a carry-on.

Despite its large size, the automaker promotes the car as being able to outperform most two-seaters. It has 127 megawatts of power 3500 Nm of torque helping it get from zero to 62 mph inn use 1.9 seconds. It can run up to 400 kmh. The powertrains uses three electric motors combined with a twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter three-cylinder engine. Koeningsegg calls this engine the Tiny Friendly Giant, or TFG for short.

The company brags that the car can silently drive up to 300 km/h and the car has an all-electric range of 50 km.

Gemera has rear- and all-wheel steering, and all-wheel torque vectoring.

Koeingsegg hasn't skimped on creature comforts in the new model there are four heated and chilled cup holders, front and rear seat infotainment displays, four reading lights, memory foam heated seats, power seats, tri-zone climate control, exterior and interior cameras, and front and rear wireless phone chargers.

There are two ISOFIX connections available in the rear seats.

The exterior of the car features hallmark Koeingsegg attributes like fighter jet-inspired styling, hidden A-pillars, short overhangs, and large intakes. The carbon fiber body structure protects and has made the car a viable model without traditional B-pillars.

2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 gets reveal date

Chevy draws a line from the Z06 directly to its racing program.

Chevroley

The new Chevrolet Corvettewas a revelation when it was finally announced. The car brought a mid-engine design to the Corvette line for the first time, and put decades of speculation over the shift to bed. We've all known that Chevrolet would eventually release an even higher performance Z06 version of the car, but now we know the date. The automaker just announced that the car will be revealed on October 26.

To build hype for the car's announcement, Chevy released a short teaser video of the Z06 tearing around the Nurburgring. It's clear from the film that the car we'll see in October will be a different beast from its standard predecessor, which mainly comes down to a big change in its powertrain.

The new Z06 is expected to feature a flat-plane crank V8 that will allow it to rev to 8500 or 9000 RPM. The car should see in excess of 600 horsepower from its howling V8, which will be sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.



As it has done with other Z06 models, Chevy will bolster the Corvette's suspension and brakes to accommodate higher speeds and the jump in power. The car will be able to carry more speed into corners and stop in a shorter distance than its standard counterpart, which will improve its lap times at the track. Various active and fixed aerodynamics components are also expected.

The C8 Corvette's interior is anything but boring, and the Z06 will carry on with that tradition. We'll still see the long center strip of buttons and controls, along with a digital gauge cluster and nicely upholstered sport seats. The Z06 will most likely get more in the way of carbon fiber and race-inspired trim pieces, but the layout won't deviate from the standard car to a great degree.

The Navigator gets several updates for 2022, including new styling and tech.

Lincoln

The Lincoln Navigator was one of the first ultra-luxury SUVs when it launched over two decades ago, which helped kickstart the big-vehicle craze that still rages on today. Lincoln has continued improving the Navigator over the years to the point that it's now a rolling showcase of the latest and most impressive tech, staggering luxury features, and actual utility vehicle functionality. The vehicle was last fully overhauled in 2018, but the 2022 model picks up revised style, even more premium features, and new themes for the range-topping Navigator Black Label model.


2022 Lincoln Navigator Black Label is Lincoln's top trim offering, and is available in several of its vehicles. Lincoln


Lincoln introduced two new themes as part of the Navigator's Black Label offering for 2022. The Central Park theme features dark walnut open-pore wood trim, luxury leather in an exclusive Urban Green color, and an available Black Label-exclusive Manhattan Green Metallic paint color. The Invitation theme brings open-pore Khaya wood, Venetian luxury black leather, special interior lighting elements, and brandy-colored stitching. Both themes feature laser etching and other intricate detail work inside the vheicle.

Black Label launched in 2014 and is Lincoln's top-end end model offering. It's available in the Nautilus, Aviator, and Navigator, and brings several vehicle features and auxiliary services to Lincoln owners. Black Label vehicle features and services include:

  • Concierge access: The Lincoln concierge can schedule service or cleaning, answer vehicle questions, and help schedule dinners or other experiences. Black Label owners also get a complimentary dinner for two, which can be scheduled through the concierge.
  • Special airport and rental car services: Lincoln partnered with Avis to provide guaranteed rental car access, an exclusive and dedicated phone line for Black Label owners, and free rentals at select airports. Owners also get a membership to CLEAR, which offers expedited airport security passage and other perks.
  • Extended complimentary maintenance plan: Black Label owners receive four years of free maintenance. If the owner lives within 50 miles of a dealer, they will pick up and deliver the vehicle so that the owner does not need to leave home. Free car washes and annual detailing are also part of the deal.

We don't have pricing details for the 2022 Navigator yet, but we expect its price tag to be similar to that of the 2021 Black Label model, which started at around $100,000 after destination. Lincoln says that it will release more information closer to the Navigator's expected on-sale date early in 2022.
