The Geneva Motor Show is the biggest car show in the world, and this year’s show featured more manufacturers and exhibitors than ever before. There were some TRULY amazing cars on display in Geneva this year, like the Bentley EXP10 Speed 6, McLaren 675LT, Ferrari 488 GTB, Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and Mercedes-Benz AMG GT3, to name a few. Koenigsegg stole the show when they introduced the Koenigsegg Regera. What set it apart were its incredible stats and visually appealing design.
Koenigsegg Regera‘s hybrid drivetrain that puts out an astounding 1500HP (700HP from three electric motors, combined with a twin-turbocharged 5.0L V-8 engine). The car itself can reportedly accelerate from 0-249MPH in less than 20 seconds! All with a single-speed gearbox,
There’s a slew of technical information on Koenigsegg’s webpage, so be sure to check it out if you want to learn more about this game changing supercar and the technology that powers it.
But to put things in perspective, the Porsche 918 takes 23.0 seconds to go from 0-186MPH. The Regera can hit a speed that is 60MPH higher in less time. That’s freaking insane..
Only 80 Koenigsegg Regeras will be built, with a starting price of $1.89 million. While that might seem steep, compared to the $3 million plus track-only McLaren P1 GTR, it’s actually a real bargain! If you want one, you better hurry up, as they’ve reportedly already sold 4 cars. Deliveries of the first cars begin in 2016.
