You could say Koenigsegg is a ’boutique’ supercar. Customers can choose a specific style and then customize it according to taste. Money talks clearly, like the Regera that will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s in Arizona, USA on January 22, 2021. The modest value of the optional equipment itself can be used to redeem a Porsche 911 Turbo S and still replace it.
Regera alone is already very unique in the hypercar world, only 80 of which were built in the 2016-2020 range. Also his ability to clearly emphasize the role of caste as a major vehicle. It is built from a carbon fiber chassis and carries an animal-powered pacemaker.
A revolutionary design in terms of electricity, the driver relies on a 5.0-liter turbo V8 unit and three electric motors. Without an electric motor, the heart of the V8 alone is ready to pump out more than 1,000 hp thanks to a turbocharger and an exhaust system that eliminates turbo lag. Just from there there is an 800-volt battery system with technology from F1 and three electric motors to increase power. It is directed directly through a direct drive system “Hydro-coup” torque converter. In total, this electricity can produce up to 1,500 hp. Accelerates from rest to 402.3 kph (250 miles/hour) and comes to a complete stop in 31.49 seconds. Amazing!

Not to mention Regera’s exotic curves, graceful and aggressive at the same time. Nice to be sure, with the most accurate Dihedral Synchro-helix door opening. Uniquely, it adopts an adjustable roof and the rigidity remains strong thanks to the carbon fiber monocoque structure. He suddenly became one of the fastest converts in the world. It is not so much a problem because it can be stored in the front part. Its aesthetics, selection of materials and construction must be recognized as a kind of technological leap.
When it was first launched in 2016, the Regera’s base price alone was $1.9 million. Dirupiahkan can reach Rp. 25 billion more. That’s just the level, in chassis number 175 which will be auctioned at the end of January, then mounted with optional components worth more than 217 thousand dollars or about Rp. 2.9 billion in 2016. First, there is no history of Regera being auctioned by RM Sotheby’s. . I don’t know how much it will cost when the hammer hits. Assessing the exclusivity and scarcity, it may not be surprising if it even surpasses the previous name, although it does not rule out the possibility of a drop either. What is clear is that there are no twins.
This Koenigsegg chassis unit 175 is the first to be delivered to Lake Forest Sports Cars of Chicago. Painted in Crystal White paint with exposed interior. The interior and exterior finish is done gahar with the “Futa” Carbon Fiber package. Even crazier, the “Speedster” graphics package takes advantage of the 24-karat gold thread finish detailing, flowing from the front splitter. Chassis number 175 stands out wearing a striped “Aircore” carbon fiber boot with a Tresex design. As if it is weak because the bar looks thin and few. However, the Tresex guard itself is an Aircore development with multiple spokes for a more stable design. Collectively, the total may exceed 217,000 USD.
Well, that’s nothing compared to the options in other Koenigsegg models. About Koenigsegg Jesko, available in a colorless option, featuring a carbon fiber shell. Jet set must pay USD 443 thousand if they want to enjoy Jesko who is completely naked and has no clothes. That’s just the exterior, not including any additional accessories.
As for the Regera that will be auctioned, RM Sotheby’s cannot yet give an estimate. The exorbitant price is certain, only that the full details will be known later. What is clear is that the car has been well maintained, the consignor has just applied clear layers of bra protection over the body of the Regera in July 2020. This includes additional protection on the rear diffuser and windshield. All original documents, service history, and sales tags are also available. (Krm/Tom)
