This is also the first Koenigsegg Regera to ride on gold wheels.
With production capped at just 80 units, the Koenigsegg Regera is already a rare sight on the road. But one owner wanted their Regera to stand out from the crowd. In the UK, Zach Lewis from YouTube channel Zach's Garage took delivery of their one-of-a-kind Koenigsegg Regera. Speaking with The Supercar Driver, Zach provides a fascinating insight into the order process of buying a custom Regera and what it's like to drive.
Prior to taking delivery of the Regera, Zach owned a Koenigsegg Agera R for two years, which helped the YouTuber form a close relationship with the Swedish carmaker. It's just one example of Koenigsegg's commitment to forging personal relationships with customers that help the company stand out from the competition, according to Zach.
Before he could even spec the hypercar, the YouTuber was warned that the wait time for the Regera to be developed and delivered would take at least two years. Zach had to wait around three years for their Regera to be delivered after placing an order due to its unique specification. Throughout the process, Zach visited Koenigsegg in Angelholm, Sweden, to refine everything to his exact specification, right down to getting the gold color of every bolt just right.
Zach's custom Regera features a bespoke blue carbon finish with diamonds in the lacquer and 24-carat gold lines adorning the side profile applied by hand. The result is easily one of the most striking examples of the Regera yet. Inside, the interior is trimmed in bespoke blue alcantara.
This is also the first Regera to feature a gold drift stitch pattern on the seats and gold wheels. Even finalizing the color sample of the wheels took around a month or two according to Zach.
Like every Regera, power is provided by a 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine and three electric motors producing a combined 1,489 horsepower and 1,475 lb-ft of torque. Replacing a traditional transmission is Koenigsegg 's revolutionary Direct Drive System. This setup enables the Regera to accelerate from 0-60 mph in a blistering 2.8 seconds and onto a top speed of 255 mph.
Zach didn't reveal how much they paid for their one-of-a-kind Regera, but the base price for a Koenigsegg Regera is a whopping $1.89 million.
