Swedish sports car maker Koenigsegg Automotive AB unveiled production-spec Regera hybrid sports car at the 86th Geneva Motor Show starting March 1. The production-spec version sports over 3,000 changes from the concept vehicle unveiled at the same show last year.
The Regera is based on a highly modified Agera chassis. The new car powered by 5.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 is backed up by three electric motors. The hybrid develops over 1500 hp output, and over 2000 Nm of torque. The engine will be mated to the Koenigsegg Direct Drive system in place of traditional transmission. The system eliminates the weight, complexity and mechanical losses that come with a traditional gearbox. Koenigsegg has developed a clutch-slip mechanism that uses the hydraulic coupling to convert torque at medium or high speeds during fast acceleration. This allows the combustion engine to gain high revs and power when you blip the throttle.
The Regera will reach from standstill to 100kmph in 2.8 seconds, 0 to 200kmph in just 6.6 seconds and 0 to 300kmph in a blistering 10.9 seconds. Koenigsegg estimates a 0 to 400 kmph speed in 20 seconds.
Apple CarPlay is standard equipment in the Regera with Wi-Fi functionality. The seats now feature heating and electrical adjustment with memory function. Koenigsegg did not reveal the pricing information, but the company confirmed it has already received many orders for the Regera.
