Most hypercars, forgo high-tech luxuries such as Apple CarPlay, a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, and memory foam seats, for carbon fiber, etc., but not the Koenigsegg Regera. This vehicle combines a twin-turbocharged, 5.0L V8 with three electric motors, to deliver a combined output of 1,800hp and 1,475 lb-ft of torque. The result is a 0-60 time of 2.5-seconds, a top speed of 255 mph, and the ability to hit 248 mph in under 20-seconds. Continue reading for two more videos and information.
“Instead of a conventional gearbox, the Regera features a piece of kit called the Koenigsegg Direct Drive. Each of the rear wheels features a dedicated electric motor, with the three units used offering a combined output of 700 hp. When the hypercar takes off, the hydraulic coupling is open, with the machine relying on electric power alone. As the engine revs climb, the coupling starts closing, while the crank-mounted motor also begins to feed power to the wheels,” reports Auto Evolution.
