Nissan doubles up on Skyline concepts for 2020 Tokyo Auto Salon

  Nissan doubles up on Skyline concepts for 2020 Tokyo Auto Salon Skyline 400R Sprint concept goes hard, Skyline Deluxe Advanced concept goes softThe automaker's being demure regarding most details of the Skyline concepts. What we can make out so far on the 400R Sprint are the matte black hood, greenhouse, and sills sandwiching a matte white body with green highlights, a GT4-looking front splitter and front scoops, 20-inch forged wheels wrapped in tires with green sidewalls, and a rear wing pulled from a GT-R Nismo. Engine specs will be revealed at the show, but Nissan pledges "overwhelming engine output and the driving potential pursued to the limit." Well OK, then.

The rumor was right. Koenigsegg has just unveiled the Gemera, an all-new member to the family that sports four seats, two scissor doors, and a massively powerful hybrid powertrain that still allows for pure electric driving. In the same breath, Koenigsegg also unveiled the Jesko Absolut, the fastest road car the company will ever produce.

Koenigsegg has revealed the new Gemera as a highly potent four-seater which promises the Swedish firm’s trademark blend of refinement and The surprise new model is described as a ‘mega-GT’, and, unlike anything else in Koenigsegg ’s line-up, is claimed to seat four adults comfortably with ample

Koenigsegg has revealed a new grand tourer that could point to the future of supercars, and maybe even the future of cars in general. It’s called the Gemera , and it’s like nothing we’ve ever seen. Featuring four seats ; two doors; all-wheel-drive; all-wheel-steering; top-exit exhausts

As the brand's first four-seater, the Gemera marks the start of a new era for Koenigsegg. While others, even many of the world's top performance names, are making high-utility crossovers and SUVs, Koenigsegg has chosen to add function while maintaining the coolness factor of a coupe. A real coupe. Who cares if you have to cram into a rear seat when the cramming is achieved through a scissor door?

With the Gemera, which has a shape inspired by an egg, Koenigsegg aimed to make a car with the personality of a mid-engined two-seater but the practicality of a road-trip vehicle. CEO Christian von Koenigsegg says he's been planning this car since 2003 and wanted to make sure every seat is equally as spacious and comfortable, unlike many 2+2s that only have two usable seats.

2021 Chrysler Pacifica First Look: New AWD For a Vantastic People Mover

  2021 Chrysler Pacifica First Look: New AWD For a Vantastic People Mover Will the new grille and all-wheel drive tempt any SUV buyers?The Pacifica's 2021 redesign includes a bolder new grille featuring a three-dimensional-effect diamond mesh and available satin-chrome finish, plus more SUV-like lower air intakes. In back, new full-width, two-tiered LED taillamps tighten up the look while also seeming curiously similar to those units on the 2020 Genesis G90 luxury sedan. These styling revisions and added rear-axle propulsion (AWD hasn't been offered on a Chrysler minivan since 2004) are both aimed at snaring a few of the myriad buyers fleeing minivans for sport utility vehicles.

The front seats are made from hollow carbon-fiber monocoques and weigh only 37.5 pounds. The slim design of the seats, which integrates the back into the bottom, and the nature of the scissor doors mean ingress and egress is simple and doesn't require moving the front seats.

The rest of the interior is focused on luxury. The sideview mirrors have been replaced with cameras, seats are heated and cooled, the front and rear each both have large digital infotainment touchscreens to control entertainment and climate, each seat has a hot and a cold cup holder, and the audio system has 11 speakers. The clever design packaging allows all this, plus storage for four pieces of luggage, three in the rear and one up front.

The Gemera will coddle and comfort, but it will also thrill with its high-tech hybrid powertrain. Koenigsegg claims 1,700 bhp and 2,581 lb-ft of torque, and a zero-to-62-mph sprint in 1.9 seconds. This is accomplished with a combination of three electric motors, a twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter three-cylinder camless gas engine, and a direct-drive transmission. It also has all-wheel drive, all-wheel torque vectoring, and all-wheel steering.

1677- HP Koenigsegg Gemera Has 3 Electric Motors, 4 Seats , 8 Cupholders. This could be the ultimate family car or just the most irrational thing Koenigsegg has announced its first four-seater megacar, the Gemera , which it claims will launch to 62 mph in 1 .9 seconds. It's powered by a

1677- HP Koenigsegg Gemera Has 3 Electric Motors, 4 Seats , 8 Cupholders. This could be the ultimate family car or just the most irrational thing Koenigsegg has ever made, and that's saying something. Koenigsegg is the very definition of a niche company. Its products are known for having

Two of those electric motors, each of which makes 500 bhp and 738 lb-ft of torque, are on the rear wheels. A third e-motor is attached to the engine crankshaft and makes 400 bhp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Simultaneously, these electric motors make 1,100 bhp. Working with the e-motor to propel the front wheels is what Koenigsegg calls the Tiny Friendly Giant (TFG) engine. It is rated at 600 bhp and 443 lb-ft of torque and uses the company's Freevalve technology.

The Gemera, which uses carbon fiber for the chassis, body, and wheels, is built to be eco-conscious, as well. An 800-V, 15-kWh battery allows up to approximately 31 miles of totally electric driving, and the car has an overall range of 621 miles. The Gemera is a flex-fuel vehicle, too, so it can run on Gen 2.0 ethanol or C02-neutral methanol. That means it could potentially be as C02-friendly as an electric vehicle, under certain circumstances.

Koenigsegg is limiting Gemera production to 300 vehicles.

Jesko Absolut

Koenigsegg says the Jesko Absolut is the fastest car it's ever made, and that "the company will never endeavor to make a faster series-production road car – ever." So, it's likely Koenigsegg will make faster one-offs and track specials, but this will be the pinnacle of speed, and will be used to chase the top-speed record.

Koenigsegg bringing a new hybrid 2+2 to Geneva?

  Koenigsegg bringing a new hybrid 2+2 to Geneva? Wild rumor posits a 2.0-liter three-cylinder hybrid with 1,500 horsepower post.metadata.leadImageDesc Koenigsegg hosted its global dealer network for a shindig at its Angelholm, Sweden, headquarters last month. During the event, the hypercar maker tweeted an image of employees standing next to five Koenigsegg models under black sheets. It was thought these represented the cars Koenigsegg will bring to next month's Geneva Motor Show. At least one of those five is rumored to be the Jesko-based Mission 500 concept, the rocket that CEO Christian Koenigsegg will use to challenge the top speed record.

The Jesko launched as an all-new Koenigsegg in 2019, and the Absolut continues its story with a different purpose. With the Absolut, Koenigsegg set out to reduce drag as much as possible and make the Jesko as slippery as possible. That started with reducing downforce, so the massive wing was replaced with two fins inspired by F-15 fighter jets. These fins "clean up airflow over the rear end," which helps increase high-speed stability.

Further reducing the drag coefficient to 0.278, Koenigsegg extended the rear hood, added rear wheel covers, lowered the ride height, removed the front wheel louvres, and removed the front hood closed air duct. The front suspension, which is more compact that the setup found on the Jesko, is also slightly softer, which makes the car more comfortable on the road, as well.

Getting comfortable with the power might be a different story. The engine is unchanged from the Jesko, so it carries on with the twin-turbocharged V8 that is connected to a nine-speed transmission. The engine revs up to 8,500 rpm, and Koenigsegg claims 1,600 bhp on E85 fuel. Unique innovations also allow drivers to shift from any gear to any other gear.

Cupra Formentor Is the New Sinisterly Named 306-HP SUV from Seat's Performance Brand .
The Spanish spin-off brand reveals its first dedicated model.Okay, so technically the Cupra brand launched last year with a sportier creation of the Seat Ateca SUV, and just last week, Cupra revealed new warmed-over versions of the existing Leon hatchback and wagon. But the Formentor is the first product designed from the ground up by Cupra. Named after a cape on the Spanish island of Mallorca, and not, as you might have thought, some kind of demonic spirit, the Formentor is about the same size as a Subaru Crosstrek (175.2 inches long and 72.4 inches wide) but decidedly more potent. Its top powertrain offering is a turbocharged 2.
