Koenigsegg Regera – A 1500 bhp Gearless Hypercar

No, it is not the Agera we are talking about. Koenigsegg just revealed its new 1500 bhp monster at the Geneva Auto Show recently, and honestly speaking, we are  going nuts about it.

If you enjoy listening more than reading, please listen to the audio article!

Dubbed as the Koenigsegg Regera, this hypercar has many next generation technologies. It is a plug in hybrid, just like the Lamborghini Asterion, but the Koenigsegg Regera has many other things to talk about. It does not have a gearbox. No manual or automatic transmission is required for this beast.

The Koenigsegg Regera works with the Koenigsegg Direct Drive transmission. This means that the power from the engine is directly transmitted to the wheels through the above shown mechanism. The detailed specifications are given on Koenigsegg’s official website, in case you want to have a thorough idea. There is another feature on the Koenigsegg Regera, known as the BDM (Battery Drain Mode). This feature makes complete use of the battery and reduces or cuts off the power from the IC Engine, when the vehicle advances towards its destination, so that it could be charged again. Koenigsegg believes that this will reduce emissions and fuel consumptions, thereby making the Koenigsegg Regera more eco friendly.

The Koenigsegg Regera also features a completely foldable rear wing that pops up according to the speed of the car. The fish tail outlet in the Regera’s exhaust is a blast from the past, and this might make it sound  a bit retro. But that’s not all. The Koenigsegg Regera is completely robotized, and the company says that this is the world’s first fully robotized car. Automatic doors, hoods, and even the complete rear panel pops open and closes with the touch of a button.

The interior of the Koenigsegg Regera looks elegant, with very minimal buttons. There is a huge touchscreen in the middle which will control everything. The design of the car takes the element of a standard Koenigsegg design, and the doom shaped cabin makes it recognizable.
