Although it was first seen at last year’s Geneva Motor Show and its technical details were announced in November, it visited the ‘fantastic’ exhibition this time:
The biggest of supercars: Koenigsegg Regera
When we remember, the technical characteristics of the Bugatti Chiron were, to say the least, amazing. Of course, let’s not forget that the ‘quickest on the pavement’ comment was given to the Chiron. But under the hood of the Regera Hybrid is not bad at all:
- – W8 5.0 LT twin-turbo engine
- – 1,100 HP of power
- – 215 HP + 241 HP electric motor power
- – 410 km / h maximum speed (minimum)
- 0-400 km/h performance 20 seconds
- – 1,590 kg weight
Now let’s move on to the performance comparison. Bugatti’s new beast does 0-100 in less than 2.5 seconds. To be honest, the Regera is a bit behind here, reaching 100 kmph in 2.8 seconds.
But as the pace picks up, Regera catches up. Chiron accelerates to 200 km / h in 6.5 seconds, while Regera reaches 6.6 seconds. This means that the Regera is between 100-200 0.2 faster than the Chiron. When we take the values of 0-300 km/h as a base, Koenigsegg makes a difference to Bugatti. While the 0-300 performance of the Bugatti Chiron is 13.5 seconds, the Regera reaches this speed in exactly 10.9 seconds. In other words, Regera is 2.6 seconds ahead of Chiron. Another aspect of the business is that while the cars we use in our daily lives reach 100 km per hour, these cars reach 300 km per hour. 🙂
Let’s do another little comparison to understand how fast the Regera Hybrid is; Lotus Renault’s GP R30 Formula 1 car can accelerate from 0 to 300 km/h in 12.1 seconds. We said that Regera reached this speed in 10.9 seconds. In other words, it’s faster than the Swedish F1 wonder car.
When we look at the Koenigsegg Regera gearbox, we can’t see anything. Jokes aside, the Regera has a single speed system. This system, called Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD), works with 50% less energy than a conventional transmission. This helps Regera to be very good.
Deliveries of the model, of which only 80 will be produced, will begin this summer. The base price is $ 2 million and a half already sold!
