It is anticipated moment and here at Koenigsegg regera , the new Swedish brand megadeportivo presented in Geneva . This is the latest craze manufacturer who wanted to turn your new car in the most powerful production sports car and yet, also wanted to get away from the concept of radical sports.
Okay, radical sports dissociate over 1,500 horses is complicated, but Koenigsegg says the regera can combine luxury, comfort and performance with rationality. And it does a supercar that comes with plug-in hybrid mechanics. Do not hesitate, is the new Bugatti Veyron .
The design is based on aerodynamics, one active aerodynamics which can be configured from the mobile phone itself. Its design evokes the classic designs of the brand, with a dome for the interior, but has also managed to tame more strokes with a renewed front or back strongly reminiscent Spyker. The rims are again carbon fiber 19 and 20 inches.
But if anything regera Koenigsegg is presumed powertrain. It is a car plug-in hybrid combining a motor 5 liter V8 twin turbo with a set of three electric motors . The final power far exceeds the 1,700 horses and reaches 2,000 Nm of torque, leaving almost ridiculous to One:. 1 and, incidentally, his entire competition
This struggle for the most powerful sports is settled with 0-100 km / h in 2.8 seconds , but not the most significant digit. Here are a few examples. The 0-400 km / h covers it in just 20 seconds exceeds 400 km / h with ease and 150-250 km / h takes just 3.2 seconds of your time.
The key is a single power unit of its kind. Of the three electric motors, two were placed in the rear wheels, with 245 horsepower each, and the third integral with the crankshaft rotates car with 217 horsepower. The heat engine generates up to 1,100 horses with a performance exhaust signed by the Akrapovic specialist. And no, no gearbox .
Koenigsegg technology called Koenigsegg Direct Drive , and is neither a gearbox or a CVT box. The manufacturer claims that its system eliminates interruptions of power delivery, as there are no gears, and optimizes energy losses at high speeds around 50% compared to conventional transmissions. Added to that, you can move in all-electric mode with a higher power to 700 horsepower with a range of about 50 kilometers .
The Koenigsegg regera has moved away from the classic production line brand, away from the circuit performance to deliver a single car and technologically advanced. This will is a very limited production, for now only 80 units . The price, as expected, be as high as that will be around 1.7 million euros .
