1,500 HP Koenigsegg Regera Hybrid Hypercar to Cost $2.34 Million
Boasting both a hybrid and electric drivetrain spinning out some 1,500 horsepower that takes it from 0 to 60 MPH in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 248 MPH, the Koenigsegg Regera is amongst the most powerful production vehicles ever conceived. Those are some impressive numbers to be sure, and just as impressive is the $2.34 million price tag for one of the 80 examples planned, reports AutoGuide.
Using a twin-turbocharged 5.0 liter V8 and a trifecta of electric motors, the Regera (which in Swedish means “to reign”), Koenigsegg quotes figures of 1,500 horsepower and 1,475 lb-ft of torque. A 9.27 kWh lithium-ion battery pack provided by Rimac Automobili provides up to 22 miles of electric-only driving range, though the motors are more about instant torque than any pretext of environmentalism.
That’s not to say founder Christian von Koenigsegg doesn’t have something of a green tint. He is a loud-and-proud Tesla Model S owner, and it’s not too far out to imagine that he may build an all-electric hypercar bearing the Koenigsegg name, some day. For now though, if you want a hybrid Koenigsegg, you’d better be worth a billion or two.
