The Koenigsegg Gemera is a seriously impressive beast, as it’s not only the world’s first four-seater hypercar, but it packs a whopping 1,700 horsepower.

That means that it takes just 1.9 seconds to accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph), and it’s a hybrid as well.

Oh, and they want to power it with fuel from a volcano.

Vulcanol is a version of methanol made from volcano carbon emissions, and it could very well be the future of hypercar fuel.

This Koenigsegg’s engine is a masterpiece, designed to run on completely renewable energy sources, but backed up by three electric motors as well.

Add that to the fact that it looks mean as hell, and you’ve got one hell of a hypercar.

It looks great, it sounds great, and it goes like nothing on the market.
