The Heart of the Matter
A New Level of Luxury
Designed to be a luxury Megacar alternative to Koenigsegg’s traditional extreme, light weight, race-like road cars. The Koenigsegg Regera combines a powerful twin-turbo V8 combustion engine with three electric motors and cutting edge battery power via new powertrain technology called Koenigsegg Direct Drive. This revolutionary technology removes the traditional gearbox, making the car lighter and more efficient.
The heart and soul of every Koenigsegg is its Internal Combustion Engine – the ICE. The ICE of the Regera follows the path of its siblings, the proven and extremely reliable Koenigsegg dry-sump twin turbo, DOHC, 5.0 liter V8. The Koenigsegg V8 is the most downsized homologated production ICE in the world, with 220hp per liter (using regular pump gas). The compact nature of the engine means the Regera is light in weight, and therefore nimble and efficient. The Regera V8 differs slightly from our predecessor Agera engine. As the powertrain already produces a combined 1500hp and with electric propulsion providing instant torque from the Direct Drive system, we did not have to go as extreme on ICE power. Instead, we installed even smaller, faster-spooling turbos on the Regera, further enhancing the car’s drivability and response.
The Direct Drive transmission of the Regera delivers blistering performance, while at the same time offering one of the smoothest, most soothing driving experiences imaginable. It is a true Jekyll and Hyde experience that depends completely on your mood. We have developed a completely new rear sub frame that allows the engine and transmission to rest on active soft mounts. When driving in normal conditions, the mounts stay soft and isolate engine noise and vibrations. During spirited driving, the mounts firm up to solidify the car and give greater response. The shock absorbers are active in both height and stiffness, adjusting instantly to your inputs behind the wheel.
The Regera is the first car in the world that operates all body closures completely automatically, at the touch of a button. We call this system ‘Autoskin’. Koenigsegg has managed to robotize the entire Regera with almost no weight penalty, thanks to the latest advances in compact lightweight hydraulic technology. The Regera features functions such as active front and rear wings, chassis control and lifting system as standard, so the hydraulic pumps and accumulators were already in place to implement automation of our doors and front/rear hoods. The Autoskin hydraulics replace gas struts of similar weight, resulting in minimal weight impact.
