The Agera RS having made its look, it’s the 2016 Koenigsegg Regera’s turn under the spotlight at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show.
2016 Koenigsegg Regera Specs as well as Engine
The Regera meanings “to rule” utilizes exactly what Koenigsegg calls Direct Drive, or KDD for brief. The KDD system changes the traditional transmission by developing a direct connection between the interior combustion engine and the rear axle at certain speeds. To supplement that power, and to supply torque vectoring, regenerative braking, vibrant responses and also reverse, there are three YASA electric motors. One treateds each back wheel as well as the third is on the crankshaft filling out the torque gaps.
On launch, a hydraulic clutch separates the gas engine from the driven wheels up until concerning 30 mph; the electric motors fill out the gaps till then. Afterwards, the direct drive system channels power from the engine to the driven wheels with a 2.85 last drive ratio.
Baseding on Koenigsegg this system saves weight over a standard two-drivetrain “parallel hybrid,” like the very early Honda Insight, and also has far better efficiency than a collection hybrid, like the range-extending BMW i3. The full system, consisting of the 620-volt electric battery pack made with help from Rimac, includes 194 extra pounds to the car. Koenigsegg contrasts that to a standard setup, seven-speed DCT as well as all. Final aesthetic weight comes in at 3,589, which might appear a little beefy for a vehicle that’s implied to control the plebes, till you check out the total outcome specs.
The Regera delivers greater than 1,100 hp from the engine– a 5.0-liter V8– as well as greater than 1,500 hp total amount. Max torque steps in at an asphalt-melting 1,475 lb-ft. Koenigsegg really did not give normal performance specs, however it did say the Regera takes 3.2 secs to obtain from 93 miles per hour to 155 mph and just 20 secs to obtain from no to 248 mph!
With all that power, Koenigsegg needed to develop a totally brand-new rear subframe and also back structure that enables the engine to relax on current soft mounts. Throughout regular driving they stay soft, muting noise and also resonance. If a motorist should mobilize 1,000 approximately steeds, the installs tighten for a far better feedback. The shocks likewise instantly readjust depending upon style and also drive mode.
The Regera has some various other dress up its sleeve, as well. The rear wing from Akrapovic could fold standard and vanish if need be, as well as the doors, trunk as well as hood could be opened up, all at once with a phone application. We looked online for a video clip of that. Up until now, no good luck.
Like lots of, , routine automobiles that have both an electric and also fuel engine, the Regera can be connected in at your residence through a type 2 battery charger concealed behind the license plate.
Koenigsegg will certainly generate just 80 instances of the Regera, a number that the press information claims “symbolizes the concept of dominance, command and accomplishment in Pythagorean Numerology.”.
We’re not certain concerning that, but we will certainly presume that it will certainly cost in the millions of bucks. Rumors placed it around $2 million, really.
2016 Koenigsegg Regera Price
Price of admission for each and every of the 80 2016 Koenigsegg Regera will start at $1.89 million.
