Koenigsegg Regera - Luxury Megacar
Koenigsegg shocked the world last year at Geneva with the first ever Megacar, the
Megawatt capable (1,360 hp) Koenigsegg One:1. This year they shocked the world
once again with the world’s fastest and most powerful production car ever, the Regera!
Well known by automotive enthusiast for their extreme and lightweight race-like road
cars, Koenigsegg is the type of car that only the most extreme and wealthiest car
fanatics will buy.  

The new Regera unveiled at Geneva is a little different to past Koenigseggs, a more
complete all-around car you might say. The Swedish super car builder claims that this is
the world’s most powerful luxury Megacar.  Remember the high performance car
hierarchy goes as follows: Sportcar < Supercar < Hypercar < Megacar). The name
Regera means “to Reign” in Swedish and this Megacar will “Reign” in power,
responsiveness, and luxury.

Limited to only 80 examples, the car will be powered by the very powerful and reliable
Koenigsegg twin turbo 5.0 liter V8 that produces 1100 Hp and 1250 Nm (922 ft lb) of
torque.  Additionally the car has three electric motors, one 160kW Crank mounted
motor and two 180kW Driveshaft mounted motors at each rear wheel.  Total combined
power output will be a mind boggling 1800 Hp and well over 1500 ft lb of torque.

Although the car is focused for street and not track use, Koenigsegg wanted the car to
be as light as possible but without scarifying luxury.  One of the biggest innovations is
the Koenigsegg Direct Drive Transmission (KDD) which means basically the car has no
gears. Christian von Koenigsegg invented this technology by using the electric motors
to replace the gears of a normal transmission while adding power, torque and removing
weight. Basically the KDD creates a direct drive to the rear axle from the combustion
engine and electric motors. The batteries can be charged by the combustion engine or
by a charging port in the back, with a pure electric drive range of 31 miles (50 km)

Designed for maximum enjoyment in the normal road, the Regera is packed with many
luxury and comfort features but it is still a light car.  With a curb weight of 3589 lbs.
(1628 kg) the car can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds, 0-300 km/h (186 mph)
in 12.3 seconds and only 20 seconds to 248 mph (400km/h).

The Regera will have a base price of $1,890,000
