Koenigsegg Regera

The Koenigsegg Regera is a limited production, plug-in hybrid Supercar manufactured by Swedish manufacturer of high-performance sports cars Koenigsegg. The name Regera is a Swedish verb, meaning "to reign" or "to rule." Only 80 units will be built.

The Regera produces a reported total of 1,822 metric horsepower through a hybrid powertrain. The engine is a mid-rear mounted, in-house developed, twin-turbocharged V8 engine with a 5.0-litre capacity. It produces 820 kW (1,100 bhp; 1,115 PS) at 7,800 RPM and 1,280 Nm (944.1 ft-lb) at 4,100 RPM. It works in conjunction with three YASA electric motors with a total capacity of 520 kW (697 bhp) and 900 Nm (663.8 ft-lb) of torque. Price starts around $ 1.9 million.

One 215 bhp electric motor on the crankshaft supplies torque fill while acting as both a generator and a starter motor and two 241 bhp wheel shaft mounted electric motors drive the rear wheels and provide torque vectoring.

The electric motors are powered by an 800-volt, 90 kg liquid cooled battery pack, making it the first 800 volt production car.
. The Regera doesn't have a traditional multi-gear transmission but instead features a single-speed fixed gear transmission, often called a direct drive. Koenigsegg states that the car has a top speed of 255 mph, is capable of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, 300 km/h (190 mph) in 10.9 seconds, and a speed of 250 mph in 20 seconds.
