Take a ride in the incredible Koenigsegg Regera!
Big sound and crazy accelerations
Launched in 2015, the Koenigsegg Regera is the more luxurious alternative to the much more radical and sporty Koenigsegg Agera R. Of course, the Regera hasn't forsaken performance, as the hypercar keeps more than flattering figures worthy of its category.
The Regera hides under its bonnet a 5.0-litre V8 with 1,100 PS. With the support of three electric motors, the hypercar can produce a combined power output of 1,500 PS and torque of 2,000 Nm. The car sends all this cavalry to the rear wheels via a very specific transmission.
The Regera does not use a traditional gearbox but a transmission using both an electric motor for low speeds and a hydraulic torque converter associated with the combustion engine for high speeds. The whole thing is quite confusing and can be compared to a CVT gearbox.
However, 0-60 is done in 2.7 seconds, which has nothing to do with most cars equipped with CVT transmissions. Fortunately, because the Swedish hypercar manufacturer has to maintain a reputation worthy of the world's best car manufacturers. AutoTopNL offers us a few minutes ride into this exceptional vehicle.
