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 2016 Koenigsegg Regera (abbreviated as Regera '16 and KoenigseggRegera[2]) is a hybrid hypercar that appears in Forza Horizon 3 as VIP membership content, and in Forza Motorsport 7 as both a Bounty Hunter reward and Specialty Dealer purchase.

Background

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.[3]

Characteristics

The Koenigsegg Regera is powered by a 5.0 L (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, especially after being given higher specifications in Forza Motorsport 7, with 1757 hp (1310 kW) and 1578 ft·lb (2140 N·m). With the latter torque output, the Regera also has the most torque of any production car in the Forza series.

The Regera uses the Koenigsegg Direct Drive System (KDD). Developed by the Koenigsegg Advanced Engineering Team, the KDD allows for pure EV (electric vehicle) mode and has a single-speed fixed gear transmission, often called a direct drive, with a 2.73:1 reduction ratio. As with other Koenigsegg models, the Regera is rear-wheel drive. Due to being a more luxury-oriented car, it is much heavier than other Koenigsegg models, with 3589 lb (1628 kg). Despite this, its power-to-weight ratio of 1079 hp (805 kW) per tonne is greater than even that of the One:1, with 986 hp (735 kW) per tonne.[4] At 155 mph (250 km/h), the Regera generates 994 lb (451 kg) of downforce.

The Regera features a central fake exhaust pipe that serves to suck in air to cool the batteries down alongside actual twin Akrapovič exhausts that are located in 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.

The Regera is capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.8 seconds, 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.1 seconds, 0 - 186 mph (300 km/h) in 10.9 seconds, and an electronically limited top speed of 255 mph (410 km/h), which is actually lower in each Forza appearance, especially under homologation rules in Forza Motorsport 7.

Performance

The Koenigsegg Regera, carrying tremendous amounts of power and torque and being RWD, 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.

Trivia

  • Going to the Tuning menu with the Regera selected reveals a second gear in the Gearing section. This second gear is unused. This does not appear in Forza Motorsport 7.
  • The Regera has no conversion upgrades available.
  • 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.[5]
