Koenigsegg Regera

Koenigsegg Regera : A new breed of super car

Koenigsegg is always being a major supercar manufacturer since it has lauched. Right from the agera the brand is known for the mega machines. Koenigsegg Regera was recently unveiled in the geneva auto show (one of the biggest auto show in the world).

The Regera was created as a luxury Megacar alternative to Koenigsegg’s traditional extreme lightweight race-like road cars. Even though the One:1 and the Agera RS have surprising levels of practicality, creature comforts and features, their primary focus is, and has always been, to be the overall fastest cars on the planet – around a racetrack or elsewhere.
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. According to us, the only Hyper/Megacar that could be faster around a circuit, is another Koenigsegg.
However, out in the open, the Regera will reign as the king of the road, as the fastest accelerating, most powerful production car ever.
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.

Special features

1) Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD)
2) Propulsion system  : The two rear electric motors provide initial acceleration, allowing the car to start from standstill without help from the low gears of a transmission. These motors also provide reverse driving and deliver torque vectoring for improved handling. At about 30 to 40 km/h (19 to 25 mph), the hydraulic coupling closes, routing the output from the front ICE/motor drive (primarily the motor at this point, as the engine is still getting up to speed) to the rear wheels. The crankshaft-mounted electric motor acts as a starter, torquing the engine to full life by around 120 to 130 km/h (75 to 81 mph).
3) Daylight Running Lights
4) Fully robotized car
5)The World’s first fully foldable, active, top-mounted rear wing.

Product Verdict

Koenigsegg always known for innovating new technologies is again back with the new features in its model Regera. They want to increase driving comfort as much as they can. The brand new technologies like addition of electric power and Direct drive in a single car was never seen before. The Koenigsegg has a very close approach to the future mobility. The car ragera is truly a Megacar. We need to watch out for the sale and exact price tag. Its competitors like hennessey venom GT need to get alert. The Era of super cars has begun.
