Koeniggsegg Regera hits the US

This_2_million_Swedish_hypercar-85bcc9f71bfa8fde8ed31ace6518c014.jpg

 

Swedish supercar specialists Koenigsegg showed off its new Regera hybrid for the first in North America, earlier this year, at the 2016 New York Auto Show.

The Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 comprise the Holy Trinity of million-dollar hybrid hypercars.

Now, Koenigsegg has something that will not only take on the mighty trio of million-dollar cars, but that's also got the goods to take on cars costing more than twice that amount. 

Regera, which means "to reign" in Swedish, debuted as a prototype in 2015. Now, Koenigsegg is back with the production version that will reach showrooms.

Like the 217-mph models from Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren, the Regera is a hybrid. But it's much faster.

Its $2 million asking price and a 250 mph top speed means it's also a rival for cars such as Bugatti's newly revealed $2.6 million, 1,500-horsepower, 261-mph, 16-cylinder, quad-turbo Chiron hyper GT car.

Under the hood, you'll find a 1,200-horsepower, 5.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine with an attached electric motor. The Koenigsegg V8 is an engine we've seen produce more than 1,300 horsepower in the past. In this case, horsepower has been sacrificed in favor of better torque output. But 1,200 ponies is still a mind-blowing amount of power.

There's more.

You'll also find a pair of rear-wheel mounted electric motors that produce a combined 720 horsepower. Together, the complete system produces a whopping 1,500 horsepower. (Unfortunately, you can't simply add up the power output of the internal combustion and the electric motors).

Yes, they are beautiful.

The Koeniggsegg vs Veyron videos on YouTube are amazing.

Those cars simply pull away from the Bugattis.

That looks incredible, perhaps it might feature on The Grand Tour?. Though i imagine that was finished awhile ago.

The engineering on those cars is incredible.
There are a couple of documentaries made about Koenigsegg, the time it takes to hand wrap a 100% carbon fiber wheel is really cool to watch.
Not to mention the fact this thing doesnt have a gearbox is crazy too.

Veyron is a Bugatti. How can it pull away from itself. You may have wanted to mention a different car which is faster than Bugatti.
