Koenigsegg Regera


#1

I love this more than the 918, La Ferrari or P1. No “transmission” and not a “hybrid” either. 1,500HP.

:eek4:

All the fast. The Regera can get to its top speed of 249 MPH in less than 20 seconds. To compare, it takes a Porsche 918, another hybrid supercar, 23 seconds to reach 186 MPH. It goes from 93 MPH to 155 MPH in 3.2 seconds. Acceleration from 0 to 60 is the easy sort of acceleration (it does it in 2.8 seconds, which is fast), as you go faster, aero resistance makes acceleration harder.

At speeds less than 30 MPH, the Regera will run on electric power alone. At speeds above 30 MPH, the internal combustion engine comes into play thanks to a hydraulic coupling that acts like a clutch, but only slips a tiny bit. Most of the time it is locked. This sounds similar in concept to a torque converter.

When you keep accelerating, the engine is locked into the geared rear-end and works with the electric power to accelerate to the Regera’s 8,250 RPM redline, at which point it’s doing 249 MPH.

i read about this today but do not really understand what’s going on

C V Koenigsegg is a whole over level of awesome though


#5

And this from CVK… who said they weren’t even going to dabble in the electric market because they hadn’t maxed out what they could do with their “normal” gas engines.

Although I knew when he said that, WHEN they did finally make the jump, it would be a hell of one. Wonder if the Tesla patents being released had anything to do with it.

But that Top Speed disapoints a little… I mean that’s less than an Agera R…

Those are the SIQest wheels ever, I absolutely love them.

EDIT: Stumbled across this reading that article: http://jalopnik.com/the-koenigsegg-one-1-is-swedens-280-mph-carbon-fiber-h-1532088783

But can I take it through a McDonald’s drive thru?


#8

I’m having trouble wrapping my head around the 93-155 time.

Christian von Koenigsegg explains some of the car. Incredible stuff:

@BREETIME - ““Fishtail” exhaust makes 4k RPM sound like 8k RPM”

That center thing is NOT this exhaust for the gas motor :-s

He’s so far a head of the game and so "out of the box " thinking. If the box was the mound he’s in left field .

Christian asked me “What do you think?” when we got back to the factory.

What do I think? I think we’re going to need a bigger factory.

We sold 20 Regeras as soon as the car was announced early in 2015. We’re only going to make 80 of them over the car’s lifetime. I think that as soon as customers drive the Regera and experience what I experienced today, they’re going to order one of those 60 remaining cars in very quick time.

We’ve already got a 2 year backlog of work at Koenigsegg. I think there’s a blowout coming.

ugh… just wow.

I’d like to see jeremy clarkson do a drive…


#16

its so simple but very effective. I see no negative with this system. Especially on turbocharged cars.


#17

Mother of God.


#18

Effortless, raw power and you can feel it just from the sound these beasts make - pure Metal.

Any Motorhead fans here?

Love these monsters, just listen to this music (at full volume for best effect):

I’m hoping to see more than one of these at C & C this summer.
