Yup, Koenigsegg is at it again. This time, it's the 0-400kph-0 record they have their eye on. Almost unsurprisingly, they set a new time in their Regera.
When chasing down a title, it's usually held by a competitor. But not this time. You see, the record was previously set by the Koenigsegg Agera RS back in 2017, doing the 0-400kph-0 in 33.29 seconds.
Fast forward two short years and the latest offering from the Swedish manufacturer is called the Regera, I'm sure you've heard of it.
Now, this car is something else. You see, it doesn't have a transmission. Instead, the twin-turbo V8 is coupled to a generator that sends its power to two electric motors sitting on the rear axles. Now for the best part. The V8 powerplant makes a whopping 1,280 horsepower and 994 lb-ft of torque, while the hybrid system adds an extra 697 horses and 664 torques.
Using voodoo, the engineers mate this power together for an eye-watering 1,479hp and 1,475 lb-ft, and get's the Regera from zero to 400kph in 22.87 seconds, and back to zero in only 8.62 seconds. Combined, it's a grand total of 31.49 seconds. That's 1.3 seconds faster than its Agera RS sibling, and almost 11 seconds quicker than the Bugatti Chiron.
Holy smokes! Check out their run in the video below.
