Koenigsegg Regera demonstrates stunning acceleration up to 300 km / h

A video appeared on the YouTube channel AutoTopNL, which captured the crazy acceleration of the Swedish hypercar Koenigsegg Regera along the runway. The car is equipped with a 1,797-horsepower hybrid engine. The maximum speed is 410 km / h.

A team from YouTube channel AutoTopNL tested the Koenigsegg Regera on the Koenigsegg runway, which is located next to the plant of the Swedish automaker.

The Koenigsegg Regera is positioned by the manufacturer itself as a comfortable and luxurious hypercar. However, this does not mean that this model has poor performance.

The Regera can reach a top speed of 410.29 km / h and sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.8 seconds. To a speed of 200 km / h, the car accelerates in 6.6 seconds.

All of these impressive performances are achieved thanks to a smart powertrain that combines a 5.0-liter Koenigsegg twin-turbo V8 engine that develops 1,100 hp. (1280 Nm), with three electric motors with a total capacity of 697 hp. The hybrid’s combined performance is a staggering 1,797bhp, enough to outrun just about any car on this planet.

The Regera gets even more interesting when you find out that it doesn’t even have a drivetrain. Instead, it uses a single gearbox used by the engine and an electric motor mounted on the crankshaft to drive the rear wheels. The two remaining electric motors are installed on each rear wheel and provide additional power and torque control. The electric motors provide power at lower speeds and the combustion engine is activated when the speed exceeds 48.27 km / h.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Koenigsegg and Polestar are working together on “something exciting”. The two Swedish automakers have decided to team up to create an “extraordinary car”. The mysterious novelty will be presented on the west coast of Sweden.
