Koenigsegg Regera unveiled with more than 1,500 HP

The Koenigsegg Regera “megacar” has been officially introduced by the Swedish marque during the 85th edition of the Geneva Motor Show. It’s powered by a V8 5.0-liter engine which works together with three electric motors to provide a combined output of more than 1,500 HP. Interestingly, it doesn’t have a conventional transmission as the engineers were able to create a direct drive to the rear wheels thanks to the implementation of the Koenigsegg Direct Drive system. They say that drivetrain losses have been reduced by 50% when travelling on the highway compared to a regular gearbox or a continuously variable transmission.

Two of the electric motors are positioned on each of the rear wheels while the third one is on the crankshaft. These electric motors work together with a 620-volt 9.27 kWh battery and the entire KDD system adds 194 lbs of weight to the car’s overall weight which stands at 3,131 lbs.

The Koenigsegg Regera will run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 2.8 seconds and will need just 20 seconds to get from 0 to 250 mph (400 km/h). Only 80 units will be made at a yet undisclosed price tag but you can imagine it’s going to be one of the most expensive cars ever.
