PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg Heads To Geneva With A Pair Of Regeras That'll Turn You Green With Envy And Red With Lust

A few years back, Koenigsegg wowed the world with the debut of the Regera at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show. In case you’re unaware, the Regera is an absurdly fast high-powered plug-in hybrid hypercar capable of spinning the world backwards like Superman turning back time. Now, the manufacturer from Sweden is heading back to Switzerland to show off the initial pair of customer-bound Regera models, both of which are still hot off the floor from Keonigsegg’s production facility in Angelholm.

These latest Swedish meatballs represent the first time Koenigsegg has built two individual cars simultaneously, and demonstrate the rapid expansion that the niche automaker has experienced over the course of the past year. That expansion now includes two specific model lines on tap (the Regera and the Agera), a growing dealer network, and a staff that’s nearly doubled in size.

And that’s to be expected when considering the quality of the product on hand. For example, the first Regera slated to show in Geneva is draped in an exterior color similar to British Racing Green. That emerald-like hue is courtesy of a green-tinted clear coat, which shows the carbon fiber weave hiding underneath if you look close enough. Inside the cabin is Saddle Brown leather upholstery with a basket weave, while flat leather is used for the seats, rear wall, doors, and steering wheel. In the corners are Tresex hollow-core carbon rollers, which offer a 40-percent reduction in weight when compared to traditional alloys. The tires are Michelin’s Pilot Sport 4S compound.

Joining the green Regera is another sovereign automobile, this time finished in candy apple red with bare black carbon running up the middle. This example also gets bare carbon for the side intakes, while the cabin gets a black leather interior with Lingonberry trim. Meanwhile, the wheels are three-spoke carbon units in a custom design.

Both owners are expected to take delivery of their respective Regeras in the next few months.

PostHeaderIcon This Is What A Naked Koenigsegg Regera Looks Like

Supercars and hypercars, by their definition, are meant to scream for attention. Whether it’s with their outlandish looks, colorful bodies, or their stomach-churning power, these cars are as likely to be as ignored as discounted freshly baked bread. I say this because Koenigsegg is back at it with another one of its employee renderings and the latest design study is a shining example of a stylistic approach that eschews all-around flamboyance in favor of a simpler look meant to showcase the hypercar in about as raw a state as it can be.

This rendering comes by way of Koenigsegg’s current facility manager and overall longtime employee Chrille. According to the Swedish automaker, Chrille (no last name was mentioned) has been around Koenigsegg so long that he’s probably worked in just about every division in the company. Apparently, he’s worked in the composites branch, the finishing station, and the service area, and that doesn’t even include his current occupation as facility manager.

So when pressed to create his very own interpretation of what a Koenigsegg Regera should look like, Chrille took a far different approach with his rendering compared to what everyone else before him has done. Instead of dressing it up in fancy colors and saying that it’s been inspired by this-or-that, Chrille went back to basics… and barely touched the Regera.

Sure, his rendering has tone-on-tone black stripes, anthracite-finished brake callipers, and an optional aerodynamic kit, but the body of the hypercar, by and large, is devoid of any color. We all know that since Regeras are built largely from carbon-fiber, what’s left of the body without any color is the carbon-fiber, or at least in this case, naked carbon-fiber in its complete, unaltered, natural shade. That fact alone makes this particular Regera rendering a true sight to behold, even if it does look a little too close to the Raven Black Regera designed by Koenigsegg’s own art director, Lisa Johansson.

Say what you will about Chrille’s design choice, but you can’t argue that a naked carbon Regera looks just as good as all the other renderings we’ve seen in recent weeks. It may not have their flash and panache, but it is natural. At the end of the day, that counts for a lot too.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg's Design Chief Dresses Up Regera In A Popsicle

Well, this is a little different, isn’t it? Koenigsegg’s on-going Regera rendering exercise has yielded some impressive results over the past few weeks. We’ve seen the megacar dressed up in fancy colors like Bordeaux Red and Battleship Grey. We’ve seen the Regera get the all-black treatment. We’ve even seen one Regera rendering inspired by the late music icon Prince. Today, Koenigsegg is back with a new rendering from no less than its chief designer Joachim Nordwall, whose interpretation involves turning a flashy eye on the Regera.

Six renderings into this admittedly impressive exercise, we finally get a Regera in colors typically associated with performance cars of supreme ability. Take a look at it. The orange and white treatment is flashy, flamboyant, and difficult to take your eyes off of, for all the right reasons. If you’re seen driving a Regera in these colors, you better be prepared for the waves of attention you’re automatically going to get. That comes with the territory of having a supercar that pops out even more because of how it looks in vivid color.

This particular Regera rendering also tells us something about the styling preference of the man who led the design effort of the car in the first place. Joachim Nordwall is Koenigsegg’s design chief so you can be sure that when the company was developing the look of the megacar, it had to get the approval of Nordwall before it could proceed to develop and subsequently build. It’s nice to see then that Nordwall isn’t above this particular exercise and it’s even better that he didn’t pull any punches with his interpretation because, at the very least, his rendering of the Regera is definitely not for the meek of spirit. It explodes with color and personality, just like what the Koenigsegg Regera is supposed to be.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg Regera Gets Another Shot Of Red And Black

Koenigsegg’s Regera rendering exercise is going on its fifth week now and I think speak for a lot of people when I say that Koenigsegg’s employees have done well for themselves in showcasing their skills in the art form that is rendering. For the most part, the employees have come up with some incredible works of art, most notably the Bordeaux Red Regera by Johan Bjurmar, Koenigsegg’s sales director for continental Europe and Scandinavia and the Battleship Grey Regera by Mattias Vox, the Swedish automaker’s Prototype Manager and so-called “vehicle builder extraordinaire.” The latest rendering comes from Jonas Voss, Koenigsegg’s director of electrification (or “EV propulsion,” according to his LinkdIn profile), and his interpretation brings together one of the coolest two-color combinations you’ll see used on a beast like the Regera.

Red and black are arguably two of the best colors used as body colors on cars if done properly. Combining the two can yield impressive results. In some ways, Bjurmar accomplished that with his Bordeaux Red interpretation a few weeks ago. It wasn’t just the predominantly red finish on the Regera that was attractive; it was also the use of black as a secondary color and the burst of yellow streaks throughout the body that brought the whole color combination to life. By contrast, Voss’ interpretation also features black as a secondary color, but does do away with the yellow streaks, instead using white streaks to create a well-balanced three-color combination.

It’s admittedly not the sexiest rendering (that, in my opinion, still belongs to Bjurmar) nor is it the one that I’d want to be seen driving (Vox’s Battleship Grey version takes the cake there), but it’s arguably the one that’s going to get the most attention, as if the Regera needs more of it to begin with.

Here’s what I do know: these Koenigsegg Regera renderings don’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon and for what they’re worth, I hope Koenigsegg’s employees don’t get tired showing them off on a weekly basis. I can’t imagine what Mondays would be like without them now.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg's Latest Regera Rendering Is Ready For Its Close-up

At this point, these Koenigsegg renderings of the Regera have become important events in our weekly automotive calendar. That’s been the case since the calendar flipped to 2017 as we’ve been treated to a weekly dose of renderings from people inside the Swedish supercar maker. Copywriter Steven Wade kicked things off with a Prince-inspired purple Regera before Johan Bjurmar, Koenigsegg’s sales director for continental Europe and Scandinavia, followed suit with his Bordeaux Regera. Then last week, it was art director Lisa Johansson’s turn and she opted for a Raven Black Regera that looked sexy to the hilt. Now it’s the turn of Mattias Vox, the automaker’s Prototype Manager and so-called “vehicle builder extraordinaire” whose interpretation of the mega car involves dressing it up in a classy grey finish with white trim and plenty of clear carbon fiber.

Vox’s treatment isn’t as eye-popping as the Bordeaux Regera nor is it as flamboyant as the purple Regera that was designed to honor the bombastic music icon. But this one is arguably the cleanest and most stylish of the four Regera renderings we’ve seen so far. The choice of colors are ideal complements of one another and the use of the clear carbon fiber further elevates its aesthetic appeal.

Yes, I know that I’ve spent the past four weeks gawking at these renderings and marvelling at the creativity of those who work for the Swedish automaker. Admit it though; they are impossible to ignore, especially with the level of originality that was put in the creation of these renderings. All four so far are as unique as the tastes and preferences of the people behind them.

Now that we’re four renderings into this admittedly awesome exercise, let’s all hope that Koenigsegg keeps this up. It’s going to feel weird waking up on a weekend without going to Koenigsegg’s Facebook page and gawking at the latest Regera rendering to come from its employees.

PostHeaderIcon The Koenigsegg Regera Turns Dark In Raven Black

Let’s face it – the Koenigsegg Regera looks great in just about any color. Whether it’s dressed in purple or burgundy finishes like the two previous examples we’ve seen so far of this admittedly awesome exercise Koenigsegg’s doing, the Regera speaks for itself in more ways than one. That being said, take a good look at this beauty. This Regera rendering is the work of Koenigsegg’s art director, Lisa Johansson, and like somebody who leads some of the most creative minds within Koenigsegg, Johansson’s interpretation of the Regera is a work of understated style and class.

There is an obvious appeal to an all-black look for a car, especially when the car in question is a supercar. It creates a perfect contrast to the car’s incredible and attention-grabbing power and performance capabilities. You might even say that the black finish from nose to tail helps undersell the Regera’s hardcore abilities. Most of all, black is just sexy as heck no matter what era it’s from. It’s a timeless finish that fits in well with the enduring character of the 1,500-horsepower supercar.

Johansson’s all-black Koenigsegg Regera is without question a decidedly different approach from the Prince-inspired purple Regera we saw two weeks ago and the Bordeaux-finished version last week. These three different Regera renderings create three different aesthetic interpretations. It certainly goes without saying that whichever of the three you prefer, you’re not going to hear too many complaints from us.

They all look fantastic and Johansson’s all-black interpretation of the Regera puts some pressure on the next rendering to keep this design exercise’s momentum going. Like I said last week, keep it going, Koenigsegg!

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg Employee Renders A Tribute Regera For Late Music Icon

If you’re an artist as universally loved as the late Prince, your influence usually extends long past your death. Well, the man behind the song “Purple Rain” died on April 21, 2016 and apparently, someone over at Koenigsegg is such a big fan that he decided to dress up the 1,500-horsepower Koenigsegg Regera in a special purple carbon exterior finish mixed in with white striping and clear carbon side intakes.

The man behind creating the Prince-inspired Regera is Steven Wade, a copywriter at the Swedish automaker who also happens to be a big fan of the departed music icon. Whereas his job description with the company calls for him to be good with his words, Wade is also apparently pretty good at dressing up the Regera. In his own words, he describes his creation as an ode to the man whose death almost a year ago still has him in mourning and the fact that he thinks that Koenigseggs look absolutely sexy “in purple.” Hard to argue against that sentiment.

Wade did admit that he toyed with the idea of doing a purple-and-gold two-tone scheme, but ultimately decided against it, presumably because purple and white just fit Prince’s character much better. His work on the Regera even extends to the car’s interior where the whole cabin was dressed in “snow white” leather to go with a basket weave seat pattern. He also did point out that while the rendering shows blue contrast stitching, the actual Regera – if Koenigsegg does end up making one – will have the purple stitching.

Regardless of his motivations in rendering the Regera in honor of Prince, the result is actually pretty spectacular. Maybe Koenigsegg boss Christian von Koenigsegg should take a look at his copywriter’s work here and reevaluate his position in the company. Copywriter/designer seems a more apt job title for Wade, doesn’t it?

PostHeaderIcon 2016 Geneva International Motor Show – Best In Show

You know, if you take a long, hard look at auto journalism, there are a few words that seem to pop up a little too often. One good example is the word “epic,” which, in my opinion, should be reserved for life’s most dramatic, mind-blowing moments. That said, last week was the Geneva International Motor Show, and I feel quite confident in labeling it the most epic show of the year. Granted, we’re only a week or so into March, but honestly, I’m not sure how the rest of 2016 will be able to top what we saw in Geneva.

Of course, with over 100 debuts on the schedule and just about every marque under the sun in attendance, odds were high that Geneva would bring the good stuff. Nevertheless, this year’s event in Switzerland went above and beyond, showcasing the next evolution, as it were, when it comes to bleeding-edge technology and face-melting speed.

So then – to the task at hand. It is with great pleasure that I present to you the top five debuts from the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show.

PostHeaderIcon Production-Spec Koenigsegg Regera Introduced

Production-Spec Koenigsegg Regera-0

Along with the Final Agera, Koenigsegg unveiled the production version of the Regera hybrid hyper car at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. They say the production Koenigsegg Regera features over 3,000 changes over the concept version, but looking at it you won’t notice thing.

The heart of 1590 kg (Dry weight 1470kg) Koenigsegg Regera is a patent-pending Direct Drive system which is a new transmission technology that eliminates the weight, complexity and mechanical losses that come with a traditional gearbox. It uses a clutch-slip mechanism that uses the hydraulic coupling to convert torque at medium/high speeds during fast acceleration.

They way this works in the Regera is through paddle shifters, but they don’t operate in the traditional way, as  left paddle is used to enhance the regenerative braking effect in recharging the battery pack, the right one to activate the hydraulic coupling’s ‘downshift’ operation. This is what separates the Regera’s hybrid system from others.

The battery pack in the Koenigsegg Regera 4.5kWh, 800 volt unit with Formula 1 grade, hand built cells for durability and light weight. It is a core part of the car’s 1500+ hp output, 2000+ Nm of torque powertrain which propels it from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and to 300km/h in just 10.9 seconds. Despite the vicious performance the Regera is designed to be completely usable and even comes with features such as Apple CarPlay and rear cameras.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg at Geneva 2016: Production Regera, Final Agera

Koenigsegg at Geneva 2016

Koenigsegg’s booth at this year’s Geneva Motor Show is a must-visit on account of what they are bringing along. There are three attractions, including a brand-new Agera RS build, the Regera in production trim, and the world premiere of the final Koenigsegg Agera model range.

So although one beloved Koenigsegg is going out of production, a new and more awesome model is replacing it. The Swedish firm has not revealed any details about the final series Agera, but rest assured, the hyper car will be going out with a bang. In fact, they will be showing a new Agera RS build which, again, we know nothing about yet, but should be quite exciting.

The best part of Koenigsegg’s Geneva show, however, will be the debut of the new Regera hybrid hyper car in full production trim. It will be interesting to see how the car has changed since we last saw it as a concept. The car maker says the production Regera has undergone 3,000 changes compared to the concept, so it could be a totally different car now.

PostHeaderIcon Rendering: Koenigsegg Regera R?

Koenigsegg Regera-R

Koenigsegg’s new ultra hyper car, the Regera, is all the rage these days and so independent designer Rain Prisk decided to play around with it a bit. He has penned a more aggressive version of the car which, to all intents and purposes, could someday become the Koenigsegg Regera R.

Now, we do realize the normal Regera is itself a long way off from becoming a production car you can buy. But so was the Agera at one point, and now you are spoiled for choice if you want one since there are so many different variants of it. So that will happen to the Regera as well.

The Koenigsegg Regera R Prisk has come up with features some really interesting details such as an aero kit consisting of a massive front spoiler, flared wheel arches and chunky skirts, and a large rear wing. One would assume the R is also lighter and more performance focused, and more powerful as well, although how can you improve a hybrid powertrain that already makes upwards of 1,500 horsepower, we have no idea.

Koenigsegg is building a total of 80 Regeras, each prices at nearly $2 million. If they ever build an R version, it will be more limited in numbers and definitely more expensive.

Koenigsegg Regera-video

It took a long time, but the first civilian video of the utterly amazing Koenigsegg Regera is finally here. Thanks to Shmee150 and his unwavering determination to travel all the Sweden in the depth of winter, we get an in-depth look at this hyper car inside and out, and hear its story from the Koenigsegg man himself, Christian von Koenigsegg.

Unveiled at 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg Regera is the Swedish car maker’s entry into the world of hybrid hyper cars. In man ways though, it is not a rival for the current flock of hybrid speed machines like the P1 and LaFerrari, but the upcoming Bugatti Chiron.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg Regera Gets New "Autoskin" Robotics

Koenigsegg’s showroom area inside its Ängelholm production facility was recently transformed into a new prototype workshop. Inside that workshop, engineers have been busy at work developing designs for future vehicles and new technology for the exclusive automaker. The first thing to come out of this prototype workshop is a system that is now available on the new Koenigsegg Regera, and it goes by the name “Autoskin.”

Autoskin is a technology that adds automation to the Regera. With the use of lightweight hydraulics soft-close mechanisms and proximity sensors, the system can open and close the rear engine cover door, passenger and driver door, and the front luggage door. They system makes the automation seem effortless, and with the proximity sensors, it is safe and practical – adding even more beauty to an already gorgeous car.

Christian von Koenigsegg said, “People often comment on our cars looking spectacular when all the doors of the vehicle are open.” He continued, “Our new Autoskin system enhances this, adding a new level of beauty, practicality and sophistication to the most exciting new hypercar in the world – the Koenigsegg Regera.”

The Regera already comes with a rather unique key, but that key will now include the controls for Autoskin as well. Each door can be opened individually, or if you press “Show Mode,” all doors will open and the spoiler will raise at the same time. If you’re one to pay attention to the small details, don’t worry about weight gain. The whole system adds less that 5kg, (11 pounds) which means performance figures should remain about the same.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg Regera Spotted Around Goodwood: Video

Even once every single unit of the 2016 Koensigsegg Regera has been built, it will still be an extremely rare car. Only 80 units of the $1.9 million hypercar will ever be produced, so those not living in Monaco probably won’t catch sight of them all that often. But since Koenigsegg is such a small manufacturer, and can only produce so many cars at a time, there are currently a lot fewer than 80 units to try to spot out in the wild. Yet here we have a video of one spotted near the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

There aren’t any public displays of the kinds of speeds which we know the car to be capable of, but with so much of what we’ve seen of the car so far having been either photos or video footage of it just sitting there, it’s good to be able to see it in motion at all. But even better than is getting to hear the sound, we don’t really hear any particularly high revving, but the sound of the twin-turbo V-8 is amazing at any speed. And for a bonus, we get a shot of the retractable spoiler in action too.

Koenigsegg Regera-gfos

We haven’t seen much of the new Koenigsegg Regera super-ultra-hyper car after its debut at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. But now and thanks to the good folks behind the Goodwood Festival of Speed, not only do we get a good look at this incredible machine, we get to watch it in action next to another awesome Koenig, the Agera One:1.

Between them Koenigsegg Regera and the One:1 have something like 2,500 horsepower, which is enough power to revive a collapsed star. What’s it like here on earth? Well, let’s find out:

Koenigsegg Regera Technical Specs:

  • 1100 Hp of combustion engine power on 91 octane DIN or 95 octane RON (a bit more on E85)
  • 1250 Nm of combustion engine torque
  • 700 Hp of electric propulsion
  • 900 Nm of electric torque
  • 9 kWh 620 Volt, flooded liquid cooled battery pack
  • Over 1500 BHp or 1.11 MW
  • Over 2000 Nm of torque
  • Dry weight 1420 kg
  • 1628 kg curb weight (including all liquids and full fuel tank)

PostHeaderIcon Get A Closer Look At The Koenigsegg Regera Wing: Video

In the small but fiercely competitive world of hypercars, horsepower is obviously pretty important. But so are aerodynamics, and the latest crop of cars have made major leaps forward in this field. Specifically, the advancements are in the field of active aerodynamics, something that is coming to cars much later than it did airplanes. But as Christian von Koenigsegg mentions in this video, active aerodynamics aren’t always handled as efficiently as they could be, and he introduces a new kind of folding rear wing on the Regera.

The idea behind this setup is to simplify the mechanics of the wing in order to make the mechanism lighter, while also making it more aerodynamically sound by allowing more air to flow under the wing. The setup extends the wing out farther from the back of the car as well, which is another aerodynamic advantage. The downside is one that some will see as trivial, but still exists. With the mechanical workings on the top of the wing, they’re constantly in view, even with the wing down. Some might find this a bit aesthetically troubling, as most of the competition offers smoother lines on the rear decks of their hypercars when the wings are down.


PostHeaderIcon Königsegg Regera Listed At 2.1 Million Euro

Start saving money now, because Koenigsegg’s newest gas-electric hybrid megacar, the 2016 Koenigsegg Regera, will cost €2.1 million, the equivalent of $2.37 million, when hits the market in 2016, making it one of the most expensive new cars in world. Despite its stratospheric price, the Regera will be the most-produced Koenigsegg’s ever, with a run of 80 units. The price was posted recently to German car-buying site, Mobile.de.

You’ll be getting a lot of car for all that money. Power comes courtesy of an innovative drivetrain of Christian von Koenigsegg’s own design, which produces a massive 1,500 peak horsepower. An internal-combustion V-8 producing 1,100 horsepower works in concert with the Koenigsegg Direct Drive system, which essentially replaces a traditional multi-speed transmission with a pair of YASA axial flux electric motors producing 700 horsepower. Koenigsegg predicts a 0-60 time of 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 250 mph.

The Regera is a sort of more-luxurious, grand-touring take on the traditional Koenigsegg formula, more in line with the Bugatti Veyron, rather than the Ferrari LaFerrari or McLaren P1 (that’s still the One:1’s job). Combined with the seamless drivetrain, the Regera’s active engine mounts and adaptive dampers will offer an effortlessly fast driving experience.
