The cars created by Christian Von Koenigsegg have always been unique, powerful, and above all, innovative. The Regera, which means “to reign,” in Swedish, tops all of the carmaker’s previous accomplishments in all three categories. The body, while undeniably Koenigsegg, is understated, and the interior luxurious. In terms of power, the Regera puts even the formidable One:1 to shame with more than 1,500 combined horsepower from its hybrid system. Lastly, topping the scale of new ideas is the powertrain that lacks any gears. Engine power is transferred directly to the wheels via a hydraulic coupling. You might think you will miss tearing through the gears but, once you experience this single-speed direct drive we think you will quickly get on board to the Koenigsegg way of going unbelievably fast.
