Production Ready Koenigsegg Regera Thunders Into Geneva

Written By:

Koenigsegg has unveiled the production ready version of their hybrid 'megacar' — Regera — at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

The Koenigsegg Regera is powered by a 5.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 which prouduces 1,085bhp at 7,800rpm. This engine's power is augmented by three electric motors, two on the rear wheels and one on the crankshaft which add another 704bhp. The combined figure is 1479bhp and a tyre shredding 2,000Nm of torque.

The Koenigsegg Regera has lost a bit of weight since it was shown as a concept at last year's Geneva Motor Show thanks to the 3,000 changes that Koenigsegg claims it has made. The Regera weighs in at 1590kg (wet) giving it a power to weight ratio of 930bhp/ton.

The Regera can hit 100km/h from standstill in 2.8 seconds, 200km/h in 6.6 seconds, 300km/h in 10.9 seconds and 400km/h in 20 seconds. The Regera can go from 150km/h to 250km/h in just 3.9 seconds.

What is really astounding about the Regera is the fact that it doesn't use a gearbox to send its power to the rear wheels.

The Regera hasn't changed much in its journey from concept to production ready form. It retains its subdued looks (for a Koenigsegg) including the crazy exhaust sytem at the rear and the insane autoskin system. 

Keonigsegg will make only 80 units of the Regera and each one retails for around $1.9 million.
