geneva 2015 koenigsegg regera debuts

The Agera RS having made its appearance, it’s the Koenigsegg Regera’s turn under the spotlight at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show.

The Swedish-style carbon-fiber exotic receives its power from a 5-liter twin-turbo V8 paired with an electric motor putting out 221 lb-ft of torque, while each rear wheel gains 192 lb-ft from their own motors, which also helps with electronic torque vectoring. A 9 kWh battery pack contributes electric power for the Rimac-made motors.

As for horsepower, 1,500 escape the corral to push the Regera from nil to 249 mph in less than 20 seconds; their escape is aided by a single-speed direct-drive transmission. Electric-only range comes to 21 miles of travel

Price of admission for each of the 80 Regeras will begin at $1.89 million.

    Very art deco interior, much like the Huayra. I'm a little confused though....electric motor @ the engine + electric motor in EACH rear wheel? Isn't that a little redundant? Wouldn't it be better to have one (or more) of these motors power the front for AWD?

    Finally a practical hybrid application ;)

  • Art_Vandelay “Fain also invited President Joe Biden to join the striking workers on the picket line”Yes. Please go on strike Joe. One of this Cosmo Kramer Bagel making strikes that lasts for a decade or so
  • SCE to AUX No sitting President should visit a picket line.
  • Scott So a sled manufacturer makes a sled on wheels. Where is the surprise?
  • Add Lightness I had one of these for a company truck. It was also 2WD thankfully as part-by-part the truck got everything replaced over the course of a year. If it was 4WD, that would have just hurt the company more fixing the extra drivetrain.
  • KOKing I like 2dr SUVs (I'm glad the new Bronco is available w 2 doors; it's MUCH better looking, and I'm finally seeing more of them on the road), but I've seen the Mexico-only 90s Ramcharger a couple of times and it has that same too-big rear window look that these old ones had.
