The Koenigssegg Regera Has Officially Sold Out

Supercars / Comments

All 80 examples of the extreme hypercar planned for production have found buyers.

The Koenigssegg Regera promises to be one of the most revolutionary hypercars ever made, combining race car performance with the refinement of a grand tourer. It's so extreme, that it doesn't even have a traditional transmission, instead featuring a unique Direct Drive system that sends power to the three electric motors. But if you were hoping to snap one up, we're afraid you're out of luck as Koenigssegg has announced that the Regera has officially sold out.

All 80 models planned for production have been allocated, representing the largest single vehicle series in the Swedish automaker's history. The Regera also marks the first time that Koenigssegg has offered a two-car line-up. Designed primarily as a grand-tourer, the Regera sits alongside its track-focused sibling, the Agera RS. "The Regera is a new high watermark for Koenigsegg Automotive" said company founder and CEO, Christian von Koenigsegg. "It has been our greatest technical challenge and as such, it is also our greatest technical triumph. That our customers and dealers have seen and appreciated the work we've done on the Regera is a source of great pride for everyone at Koenigsegg."

Combining a twin-turbo V8 engine with electric motors, the Regera produces an awe-inspiring 1,500 horsepower and 1,475 lb-ft of torque. The three electric motors produce 670-hp, with one located on the crankshaft and one on each two rear axles. The battery pack only weighs 66 kg with coolant, resulting in a power-to-weight ratio of over 10-hp per kg of mass, which has never been seen in a road-legal electric drive system prior to the Regera. This mesmerizing power is sent to the rear wheels through Koenigsegg's revolutionary Direct Drive system, which saves a lot of weight by removing the car's transmission. As a result, the Regera will rocket from 0–248 mph in just 20 seconds.
