Interestingly, in the proven domain of low-end hypercars, the Regera is not as rare as you might think. According to the Koenigsegg-themed Egg Registry website, there were 17 Regeras sold worldwide at the end of 2023, eight of which were in North America.

Two of the Regeras are being offered by the official Koenigsegg Florida dealer in Fort Lauderdale. Its website lists a 2019 model (with 610 miles) at $2.79 million, and a 2021 model (with 513 miles) at $3.18 million. Both are white with black stripes.

Only 80 examples of the Regera were built, each costing more than $1.9 million new.

As for the Regeras sold, a 2021 model (with 615 miles on it) fetched $2.74 million at a Bring-a-Trailer online auction a year ago. And according to auction site Classic.com, a gray 2021 Regera (with only 28 miles) was sold privately in Los Angeles last April. The final asking price was $3.7 million.

What sets the model apart, and ensures that it is collected, is its innovative technology, especially that advanced power train. Here’s a 5.0-liter turbocharged V-8—built in—that develops 1,100 hp. Add to this a trio of juiced-up electric motors and an 800-volt battery pack, and the total output comes to 1,479 hp, and 1,475 lbs of torque.
