These types of opportunities only come around once in a blue moon.
The chances are slim you'll ever come across a Koenigsegg Regera on US soil, let alone be afforded the opportunity to buy one. That's because the Swedish hypercar maker also responsible for the 330-mph Jesko Absolut is only producing 80 Regeras for the global market. But in a rare turn of events, a stellar 2019 example is up for auction at RM Sotheby's upcoming Arizona auction on January 22, 2021, with fewer than 200 miles on the clock and more than $217,000 in optional equipment. We're not saying you should ever sell your organs on the black market for a car, but if ever you were going to, this would be the one to go for.
It's the first example of the Regera to appear at a public auction. Chassis 175, making it the 175th car produced by Koenigsegg, is extremely well kitted, finished in Crystal White with clear carbon accents and the Speedster graphics package finished in 24-carat gold leaf. It wears the signature Aircore wheels on which the Regera debuted, manufactured using hand-laid carbon fiber.
Inside, carbon fiber and quilted leather are the order of the day, with access granted through fully automated Dihedral Synchro-helix doors.
Being a Koenigsegg, performance comes as standard, with over 1,500 horsepower courtesy of a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8, a plug-in hybrid system, and Koenigsegg's remarkable direct drive system that removes a traditional gearbox from the equation altogether.
The Regera has previously set records for 0-249-0 mph in a blistering 31.49 seconds but is still classified by Christian von Koenigsegg as a luxury grand tourer rather than a track weapon. When new, Chassis 175 was delivered to its owner in Chicago Illinois, and was subsequently treated to a full detailing and paint protection regime. Being such a rare exotic, there's no doubt it'll fetch a premium price, possibly far greater than the $2 million-plus price paid for it originally.
