Koenigsegg Regera - First Driving Footage: Video
The Koenigsegg Regera is the latest megacar to come out of the mental factory that is Koenigsegg. It’s absurdly powerful, thanks in large part to a hybrid engine that combines to pump out as much as 1,500 horsepower and 1,475 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers are not misprints; they’re further proof of the Swedish automaker’s insatiable pursuit to bring us the nuttiest and most spell-binding of cars in the world.
We love everything about the Regera and thirst to get as much of it as we can. Fortunately, Koeniggsegg is all-too happy to acquiesce to our demands by releasing the first driving footage of the Regera. We can’t tell who exactly is driving the car and who is running shotgun, but if our ears don’t fail us, the man behind the wheel who is doing most of the talking is none other than Christian von Koenigsegg himself. As for the passenger, the video simply describes him as an “employee.”
None of that matters, though, because the important part about this video is listening to von Koeniggsegg give an explanation of the Regera’s performance capabilities. There’s talk of new features like the shift-down function, hydraulic coupling, and locked coupling. All this technological wizardry will probably be best explained by watching the video in its entirety, as you can also see how these features affect the car’s ride on the road. Oh and if you stick around towards the end of the video, you’re going to hear the Regera’s rip-roaring engine in full scream. That’s something you don’t want to miss either.
