The Koenigsegg regera marks a new limit

The Swedish brand continues to surprise everyone with increasingly incredible creations. This time is the new Koenigsegg regera who will put the mark on everyone's lips.

Koenigsegg Regera frontalThe preguntaréis because. First Koenigsegg has the “Hybrid step” and he joins Ferrari with LaFerrari, McLaren with P1, and a Porsche with 918 Spyder. Secondly, for its revolution performance, has since regera 1.500 hp 2.000 Nm pair. In short: “In-presionante”.

Not much more to add, Koenigsegg has just reached the next level. The question is, What's next? We will see, but surely another spectacular creation.

How to get 1.500 hp? power transmission is direct, so no gearbox leads like other known vehicles. Mindful of this fact because it can create a turning point in how to create cars.

Koenigsegg Regera lateralA unique relationship directly transmits the power of the combustion engine to the rear wheels with the aid of 3 electric motors (exerts one transmitter and the other two acting on each rear wheel). The combustion engine is a V8 biturbo 5 generates liter 1.110 hp. The combination makes the maximum speed of the Swedish beast is of 400 km / h and only need 20 seconds to reach. These data are estimated, but not be far.

Koenigsegg has also improved aerodynamics and vehicle weight, key pieces to make it faster.
Aerodynamically, regera is the best of currently generating 450 kilos of downward force to 250 km / h thanks to its moveable rear wing made of carbon and other elements scattered body.

As extras and novel points, Yes still more, regera has the active engine mounts, recharge up through the combustion engine, electric door openers (angle vertically and 90 degrees) and trunk lids and bonnet (it can even be done from the smartphone), a curious day lighting system that mimics the brightness of stars or compatibility with Apple CarPlay your multimedia computer system.

Definitely a work of exceptional engineering. The impatience to see it in action inundates us.
