2016 Koenigsegg Regera Review, Price, Specs


Koenigsegg named 2016 Koenigsegg Regera a “megacar”, and added that the second part of its name regera is a Swedish verb meaning “to govern”, which instantly tells you what kind of performance you should expect.

Exterior

Amazingly enough, the entire exterior of 2016 Koenigsegg Regera was done with no help of professional designers! The carmaker’s intention was to make a much more luxurious version of Agera – the previous model. If you take a look from the front, you will see that it’s simplified and that it’s not what you’d expect from Koenigsegg in terms of style.

There is a new pair of headlights and a deeper aerodynamic splitter. As for the side profile, it is reminiscent of its predecessors’ profiles, even “dihedral synchro-helix actuation” doors are retained. The rear is completely redesigned, with a new pair of LED taillights and a hydraulically activated rear wing.

To all the enthusiasts, the all-new cockpit was the biggest surprise due to a redesigned center console. As already mentioned, the feature of entering via the awesome doors is retained. Regera’s cockpit is more spacious and comfy. Every single piece of the cabin equipment is wrapped in leather, Alcantra and carbon fiber.

Even the air conditioning vents are improved in comparison to the previous Koenigsegg’s models. Thus, the driving experience and the overall atmosphere were made classier. The big central display screen features Apple Car Play.

Engine and performance

The heart of 2016 Koenigsegg Regera is a twin-turbocharged, 5.0-liter, V-8 engine supplemented by three electric motors. The Regera produces 700 hp and 664 pf of torque received from the electric motors. Therefore, the total system outlet is of 1,500 hp and 1,475 pf of torque (in the least), all sent to the rear wheels through a brand new technology called the Direct Drive, which replaces the traditional gearbox with an electric motor.

Another new feature the Regera sports are variable-vane turbochargers, which give it more low-end torque and enhanced throttle response at lower revs.

According to Koenigsegg, this megacar, as they call it, is capable of developing acceleration of 0-60 mph in 2.7 sec. and  93 to 155 mph in only 3.2 impressive seconds. Moreover, acceleration to 248 mph is achieved in less than 20s, which no car in history was capable of.
