So does the ‘Autoskin’ of the Koenigsegg Regera (with video)

Koenigsegg Regera Ginebra 2015we All know Koenigsegg Regera. The latest supercar from the small Swedish manufacturer, and was presented during the past Geneva. A beast that, however, you want to be described as rational, combining sportiness with comfort and luxury. What we have said is also a plug-in hybrid? Yes, this vehicle combines a gasoline engine V8 biturbo engine of 5.0 liters with three electric motors.

The result is a combined output that exceeds the 1.700 horses and 2,000 Nm of torque. To speed up of 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds and reached the 400 km/h from standstill in just 20 seconds. But today we come not to speak of the impressive performance of the Regera, but a curiosity that hides and that receives the name of ‘Autoskin’.


And what is this Autoskin? As you can see in the video it is a hydraulic system that is responsible for opening the doors, the hood and the rear cover of the engine. The effect is, the less curious and elegant. This system is able to open each of these parts part of the body individually or open all at the same time creating an effect almost hypnotic.

Cristian Von Koenigsegg, founder and owner of the brand, is in charge of explaining this process. The idea came from the development of other hydraulic systems of the vehicle, the rear wing or the suspension. The advantages is that does not occupy much space and weight is ridiculous, less than 5 kg the entire system. It also has sensors that prevent the door being opened if it detects an obstacle. An original and resultona open without using the hands one of the sport’s most exclusive that will only be 80 units.
