2018 Koenigsegg Regera

Mar 7, 2017

Category: Rides

This year’s Geneva Motor Show appears to be one for the history books for Swedish sports car manufacturer Koenigsegg Automotive. They’re set to release the first two Regeras for delivery this year, which also feature a couple of “firsts” for the company in their own right. These include the world’s first Direct Drive system housed in a production vehicle and the first time Koenigsegg is planning on building two vehicles at the same time in their facility.

Each build features three electric motors in conjunction with a twin-turbo V8 that equates to 1500hp behind the wheel. That’s enough to get these vehicles from 0-186 mph in 10 seconds. In addition, the first Regera -finished in Racing Green- features a carbon fiber body, a Saddle Brown leather interior and hollow-core carbon fiber wheels. The second one, finished in candy-apple red also features a carbon fiber makeup (including the side air intakes), a black leather interior, and three-spoke carbon fiber wheels. Both also include a fully adjustable pedal box, electronic stability control, carbon ceramic brakes and smart airbag tech. Because with this much power safety is a must.
