Koenigsegg Breaks another record with the Regera
Koenigsegg unveiled the new Regera yesterday and of course they had to go off and break another record. The Regera uses a gasoline electric hybrid drivetrain that pushes 1500 horsepower. The Car is mainly composed of Kevlar an carbon fiber and weighs in at about 3,500 pounds. The name Regera means “to reign” from the Swedish language and it most certainly does. It can hit 250 Miles per hour under a shocking 20 seconds and 155 Miles per hour in 3.2.They say their 0-62mph is traction.
It is a hybrid, and so it has been estimated tat you can travel up to around 18 miles on just the electric power alone, but considering it is a twin-turbo 5.0-litre V8 chances are your going t want to be on both gas and electric power.At the end of the day Koenigsegg claims the possibility that the Regera can output somewhere close to 1800bhp and 1475lb ft of torque; which in my opinion is absolutely insane considering the fact it is strictly a rear wheel drive car.
The biggest thing that different with this car is that there is no transmission… Wait, hold on.. NO TRANSMISSION? That’s correct the idea came to Christian Von Koenigsegg last summer and he made it happen. Click the link below for more information about technical aspects of the Regera straight from Koenigsegg.
