Koenigsegg has unveiled the new hybrid hypercar Koenigsegg Regera at 2015 Geneva International Motor Show. The Regera was created as a luxury Megacar alternative to Koenigsegg’s traditional extreme lightweight race-like road cars. Regera is Swedish for “to Reign” – a suitable name for a machine that offers a never seen before combination of power, responsiveness and luxury – creating a true Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde persona.
In spite of all its advanced technology and creature comforts, the Regera is comparatively light. Therefore it can still perform competitively around a race circuit. The Regera will be handcrafted in only 80 examples. Apart from being a suitable production run for Koenigsegg´s newly upgraded and refurbished production facility, the number 80 also symbolizes the principle of domination, control and achievement in Pythagorean Numerology.
With the introduction of the Regera, Koenigsegg will, for the first time ever, have two parallel models in production.
The Regera combines the output of three electric motors (700bhp) with the power of a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine (1,000bhp), producing a powerful output of over 1500 hp and 2000 Nm torque. The Regera reaches the 400kmh from zero — that’s nearly 250mph — in under 20 seconds.
Inside, the interior features electrically adjustable memory foam seats, a 9″ infotainment system which works with Apple CarPlay, 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, and front, inner and rear camera system with recording capability. The Regera also comes with front and rear parking sensors and remote diagnostic and firmware update capability.
