When you become the lucky owner of a Koenigsegg Regera, sure they want to show it to the world in its maximum expression. Koenigsegg presents us with a new feature called Autoskin that converts the Regera in a “trasformer” of luxury. How? Using a sophisticated system 100% hydraulic, unfold slowly, the doors, the front hood and the rear cover of the engine. quite gimmicky and ostentatious – but undeniably elegant – we are going to teach a video after the jump.
The Koenigsegg Regera is a supercar revolutionary. Among other details, has no gearbox.
The Koenigsegg Regera is one of the supercars more pointers of the current panorama, and although it is only a prototype, this beastly hybrid swede will come soon to production. The mode Autoskin works through the installation of small hydraulic lines that control the opening of doors and two hoods. The hydraulic system of the Regera regulates centrally the transmission of engine power to the wheels – as we have already explained – and has been used for the actuation of the moving surfaces of the car.
Christian von Koenigsegg explains in the video how the idea emerged to take advantage of the hydraulic system of the car to move different parts of the body. The system weighs only 5 pounds, and also allows access to the car without having to touch its surface, for example. Interestingly, it has been the Mercedes 600 is one of the most famous cars to use hydraulic lines for the operation of all its moving components. One of the facts that make it the best Mercedes ever created, in my humble opinion.
