– From Koenigsegg
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.
With the introduction of the Regera, Koenigsegg will, for the first time ever, have two parallel models in production.
Koenigsegg may be a familiar name to some of us who are into hyper-super-exotic and now mega cars. The man Van Koenigsegg himself said it clearly, “We are the first company to produce a super car with a 1:1 power to weight ration” hence the title – mega car. But wait, what is the Regera? Yea, including the already fantastic Koenigsegg One “One:1” which we already covered, comes an all exclusive Agera RS packing more power and the mysterious reveal of the Koenigsegg Regera!
The Koenigsegg Regera marks the Swedish manufacturers second mega car to carry on the title of world’s most powerful production car, with at least 1,341 hp to match its brother the “one:1” weighing in at 1341 Kg’s which is equivalent to the engine power that is 1 megawatt of pure Swedish hästkraft.
The 85th International Geneva Motor Show on march 3d is going to be one hell of an event, with so many major releases making their debut like the 2016 Ford Focus RS, the new Porsche Cayman GT4, the McLaren 675LT series, the Infiniti QX30, the final Bugatti Veyron, the Ferrari 488 GTB and more.
The Koenigsegg Regera is expected to be a hybrid version of the Agera with an energy recovery system to cope with rival super cars – the sorts of Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder and the McLaren p1. Our guess is that the Regera will feature the cam-less engine design they have been pitching for a while, we will have to wait and see.
