    The Koenigsegg Regera is a hypercar that is the first-ever hybrid to come from the company, derived from the Agera series as a standalone model, which sits below the One:1, Agera RS and the Jesko in terms of performance. It features certain technologies such as a hybrid engine, a direct drive system that replaces the need for a traditional gearbox (which means the car has a single-speed fixed gear, like a CVT) and with luxurious features, not seen in a typical Koenigsegg, such as reduced cabin noise, unique upholstered leather, an Apple-based entertainment system, 3G, Wi-Fi and on-board cameras to record, making it a luxury-oriented hypercar. And yet it has a stowable roof and rear wing.

    Its exhaust pipes are mounted on the diffuser, not on the center, which it could be mistaken for, as that is the port for where you plug the car in and charge the batteries of the motors.

    It was shown at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The car is said to be one of the fastest accelerating cars ever designed despite the lack of a gearbox, with the claim of the car being able to reach 0-400 in 22.87 seconds (the car can do 0-400-0 in 31.49 seconds). The car's name literally means "to reign" in Swedish, which could possibly live up to its name due to its power, rarity, luxury and technology, as it stands out among the highest-performing cars. It is also said that 80 examples are to be built, making it one of the best-selling models from the brand (which would be beaten by the Jesko in the future as it has a slated production line of 125 examples).

    Despite the Regera having three electric motors, two of them are used for torque vectoring rather than all-wheel drive, and are all spread out, thus maintaining the car's MR drivetrain. Rumor has it that the actual horsepower figures of the Regera would be 1797hp, but this is unconfirmed.

    Category: Gr. X
    Origin: Sweden
    Year: 2015
    Power: 1500HP @7800rpm
    Torque: 1475lb/ft @---rpm
    Weight: 1628kg
    Engine Technology: 5.0L V8 DOHC with triple Rimac Automobili electric motors
    Displacement: 5000cc
    Forced Induction: Twin Turbocharged
    Form and Drivetrain: MR
    Transmission Type/Number of Gears: Direct drive, Single-speed fixed gear
    Length: 179in.
    Width: 80in.
    Height: 43in.
    Power to Weight Ratio: 1.08hp/kg

    Why is the Regera a Gr. X car?
    The lack of a gearbox and the use of direct drive would make the car behave like an electric vehicle, despite it being a hybrid. It is even said that company founder Christian von Koenigsegg got the idea of the Regera because of the fact that he owned a Tesla Model S (also in Gr. X).

    The Regera was rumored for GT Sport at one point but landed in Driveclub instead. (read this old article here):

    These are some photos and information of the car I found from the websites below.

    ...Finally, a Koenigsegg design that doesn't look like an updated CC8S. I "liked" it, but should've waited for better quality pics....

    Mother of God.


    I'm also really happy that Koenigsegg are finally changing up their design so that it doesn't just look like a CC8S.

    Really loving the new interior on this one. I've never cared for Koenigsegg's interior design, but now that it has more of a Pagani/Spyker vibe I'm lovin' it. :D

    ...If Koenigsegg did a VGT, it might look like this one...

    Haven't been this childishly excited about a super car since god knows when. This is everything a super car is supposed to be: groundbreaking, physics defying, in no way formulaic and stunning to look at.

    This incredible Regera makes Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren look like the newcomers to the industry.

    It looks fantastic and I particularly like the front.

    Wonderful job by Koenigsegg.

    Great coverage of this awesome car and a chat with the refreshingly down-to-earth Christian von Koenigsegg from Evo Magazine...

    And with the fact that it has no transmission is that it's like this car is not from Earth.

    Mr Koenigsegg did mention that it has a titanium Akrapovic exhaust, so it should sound pretty sweet...

  27. More information on the transmission. This isn't a CVT as some people seem to think.

    Koenigsegg's engine for this car is actually using the big bang itself to drive the wheels

    I thought this car would have gotten more love in the suggestions forum. It obliterated the hybrid car game Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche were playing.
