You may recall that we previously wrote about the Koenigsegg CCXR Supercar. Our lust for their design and style continues with the new Regera, which was created as a luxe-megacar alternative to Koenigsegg’s more traditional lightweight road cars that are really more like race cars.
Regera is a Swedish name for “To Reign” – which fits well for a car that offers for the first time a combination of power, ultra responsiveness and luxury, creating a perfect Yin/Yang balance.
The car’s body closures are fully robotized with soft latching mechanisms when closed, making this more like aTransformer then just merely a car. The interior features 8-way electrically adjusted memory foam seats, a Koenigsegg 9” infotainment system, 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, inner, front and rear cameras with recording capability, Apple Carplay, supreme sound, ambient lighting, front and rear parking sensors and convenient, remote firmware update capability along with newly added insulation to keep the outside noise out.
The outside looks just as good as the inside with the Regera’s DRL (Daylight Running Lights) which was clustered to have a ‘constellation of stars’, or diamond like lighting effect effect giving the car character and ultra distinction.
At the heart of the Koenigsegg is an Internal Hybrid Combustion Engine. Aka ICE. The ICE of this model has a twin turbo DOHC, 5.0 liter V8, along with a Direct Drive hybrid system that is capable of more then 1500 Hp and more then 2000 Nm torque combined. This puts you at 100 mph in about 3.2 seconds, or about 20 seconds to 240mph, should you need to get going quickly. Even with all that power the direct drive transmission is capable of delivering response and performance never before seen, while at the same time being one of the smoothest riding experiences available.
Regardless of the luxury component, if you’re into racing cars, the Regera is still extremely light and will perform competitively on any race circuit.
With only 80 of these being made, you’ll have a one of a kind piece of automobile art symbolizing the success you’ve achieved.
