The fastest production car can be a Koenigsegg Regera Super Hybrid

Swedish hypercar manufacturer Koenigsegg intends to improve its own speed record set by the Agera RS on a highway near the American village of Pahrump in Nevada last fall. It is planned to do this with the help of the modified Supergere Regera.

The Supercar Blog website reports that Koenigsegg is working on a new firmware, which, for a second, will improve the acceleration time of the Regulators and shift the speed limiter beyond the passport 410 kilometers per hour. The claimed acceleration time of the hybrid 0-400 kilometers per hour is 20 seconds, and the Agera RS is 26.85 seconds.

Reger is set in motion by a hybrid power plant consisting of a twin-turbo 5.0 V8, three electric motors and a unique Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD) transmission, which is a variable-slip hydraulic clutch and final drive with a constant ratio of 2.73: one. The total return of the installation – 1500 horsepower and 2000 Nm of torque. From zero to one hundred kilometers per hour, the Regera accelerates in 2.8 seconds.

In November last year, the 1360-horsepower Koenigsegg Arera RS set several records at once. Dvuhdverka accelerated to 447 kilometers per hour and became the fastest production car, and also improved its record for the speed of acceleration from zero to 400 kilometers per hour, followed by a complete stop. Hypercar did this in 33.29 seconds (8.5 seconds faster than the Bugatti Chiron).
