Koenigsegg Finally Reveals Production-Ready Regera


It's still as awesome as we expected it to be.

With all the buzz behind supercars like the Bugatti Chiron and Pagani Huayra BC, it's quite easy to forget that other performance car makers are setting up shop at the Geneva Motor Show this week. One such brand is Koenigsegg, and - to make sure the press and the public attending the show will be rushing towards its stand - it's showcasing as its headline feature the production-ready version of its highly anticipated megacar: the jaw-dropping Regera.

We already have the stats from when the car was unveiled in its silvery-blue pre-production guise at last year's Geneva Motor Show, but they're so incredible that they're easily worth mentioning again. Power comes from a 1,085-hp turbocharged 5-liter V8 and 704-hp electric motor, which (when you factor in their power curves) generate a combined output of 1,500 hp. Despite the rather portly curb weight of 1,590 kg and having no real transmission to speak of, Koenigsegg claims it can still hit 60 mph from rest in 2.8 seconds, and take just eight or so more seconds to reach 186 mph. Suddenly, the 1,360 hp Agera Final sharing floor space with the Koenigsegg Regera seems rather slow and underpowered.
