The Regera, Swedish 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, 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's engine is a 5.0L twin-turbocharged V8 that produces 1100 hp (820 kW) at 7,800 rpm and 944 ft·lb (1280 N·m) of torque at 4,100 rpm. Aiding the engine are 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 1797 hp (1340 kW) at high RPMs. At low speeds, the electric motors fill in the power, giving a maximum combined power output of 1475 hp (1100 kW) and a torque output of 1475 ft·lb (2000 N·m).
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.

The Koenigsegg Regera, equipped with a unique single-speed fixed gear transmission, accelerates seamlessly without the need to shift gears. It can reach 200 mph (322 km/h) a lot faster than most cars because of this. The Regera has an excellent top speed, albeit lower than the Koenigsegg One:1; at best, without upgrades and tuning, the Regera can reach 251 mph (404 km/h), slightly short of its claimed top speed of 255 mph (410 km/h).
The car can become difficult to control, especially on rough terrain or in wet weather conditions, and when accelerating from a standstill due to the amount of wheelspin. For this reason, it is best to not press the throttle all the way when accelerating from a standstill in this car. The Regera's handling, with an average cornering force of 1.185 g, is great, but not the best; due to its weight, an while its launch rating seems poor at first, its seamless acceleration otherwise makes up for this.
Upgrading the car can increase the car's overall performance, especially with regards to launch and handling. The Regera is commonly seen at the top of S2 Class leaderboards in terms of lap times; a properly tuned Regera can handle well and still reach a top speed of 270 mph (434 km/h).
- The Regera has a single-speed transmission and is a hybrid car.
- However, going to the tuning menu with the Regera selected reveals a second gear, which 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's in-game power and torque are shown as 1500 hp (1118 kW) and 1474 ft·lb (2000 N·m), respectively, in the games. 1500 is actually its power rating in metric horsepower (PS).
