The 2016 Koenigsegg Regera, abbreviated as Regera '16 and KoenigseggRegera in Forza Motorsport 7, is a hybrid hypercar that appears in Forza Horizon 3 as VIP membership content and in Forza Motorsport 7.
The Regera, whose name is a Swedish word for "rule", is a limited-production, targa-top hybrid hypercar created by Koenigsegg and unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The Regera was created and designed to be a more practical, luxury, hypercar alternative as opposed to a lightweight, track-focused hypercar, and is stated to be the most powerful and fastest accelerating production car ever.
|“||The cars created by Christian Von Koenigsegg have always been unique, powerful, and above all, innovative. The Regera, which means “to reign,” in Swedish, tops all of the carmaker’s previous accomplishments in all three categories. The body, while undeniably Koenigsegg, is understated, and the interior luxurious. In terms of power, the Regera puts even the formidable One:1 to shame with more than 1,500 combined horsepower from its hybrid system. Lastly, topping the scale of new ideas is the powertrain that lacks any gears. Engine power is transferred directly to the wheels via a hydraulic coupling. You might think you will miss tearing through the gears but, once you experience this single-speed direct drive we think you will quickly get on board to the Koenigsegg way of going unbelievably fast.||”|
The Koenigsegg Regera is powered by a 5.0L (5,000 cc) twin-turbocharged aluminum V8 engine producing 1100 hp (820 kW) at 7,800 rpm with a redline set at 8,250 rpm and at least 738 ft·lb (1000 N·m) from 2,700 to 6,170 rpm. The maximum torque produced by the engine is 944 ft·lb (1280 N·m) at 4,100 rpm. The V8 has 4 valves per cylinder, double overhead camshafts, dry sump lubrication, and a compression ratio of 9.3:1. The twin turbochargers use Koenigsegg-patented backpressure, while the car has 20.3 psi (1.4 bar) of boost.
Supplementing the twin-turbocharged V8 engine is an electric drive system that consists of three YASA-developed electric motors that produce a total of 697 hp (520 kW): one electric motor-generator on the crankshaft; and two other wheel-shaft-mounted electric motors. The total power output comes out as 1822 hp (1359 kW) at high RPMs. At low speeds, the electric motors fill in the power, giving a maximum combined power output of 1500 hp (1118 kW) and a torque output exceeding 1475 ft·lb (2000 N·m). The Regera also comes with a 4.5 kWh 800V battery pack. These stats make the Regera the most powerful non-pre-tuned car in the Forza series.
Unlike most other cars, the Koenigsegg Regera uses a unique single-speed fixed gear transmission, known as the Koenigsegg Direct Drive System (KDD) and developed by the Koenigsegg Advanced Engineering Team. The Regera's central "exhaust pipe" serves to suck in air to cool the batteries down while it has twin Akrapovič exhausts that are part of the rear diffuser. These exhausts are part of a custom-designed, tuned titanium exhaust system that is meant to produce a sound harkening back to 20th century performance cars.
At 155 mph (250 km/h), the Regera generates 994 lb (451 kg) of downforce. It is also claimed to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and reach an electronically limited top speed of 255 mph (410 km/h), which is actually slightly lower in the Forza games.

The Koenigsegg Regera, carrying tremendous amounts of power and torque, is very difficult to control due to experiencing major wheelspin under full throttle, which requires drivers to feather the throttle frequently, especially when exiting corners. Despite this, the Regera is also one of the fastest accelerating cars in the series, reaching 200 mph (322 km/h) much faster than most other cars. The Regera, having a stronger focus on luxury and practicality than its track-focused siblings, exhibits some understeer around corners but otherwise has highly efficient braking. With a top speed of 252 mph (405 km/h), the Regera is very useful for high speed tracks.
- Going to the Tuning menu with the Regera selected reveals a second gear in the Gearing section. This second gear is unused.
- Due to game limitations, the Regera does not go enter full electric mode whilst in reverse, unlike in real life, instead staying in full hybrid mode.
- The Regera has a targa top that permanently stays on the car in the games.
- The Regera's rear wing does not tilt under braking like its real life counterpart.
- The Regera used in the games is the pre-production model instead of the final production model introduced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
