WARNIING: What you are about to see contains graphic violence against Swedish Supercars. Viewer discretion is advised. Now that the obligatory warning is out of the way, let’s take a look at how the world’s safest supercar is pushed to its limits. This Koenigsegg Regera crash test compilation shows the world how Christian’s cars are made to surpass safety standards around the world.
Several of these impacts can be justified if your beater leaves you stranded, but not on something as sophisticated as the Regera. Once the cars arrive in Barcelona, they are greeted by the biggest sledge hammers, hood and door slammers, and with drivers not minding their manners. But fear not, instead of testing dozens of them to destruction, the cockpit was made to survive incredible stress.
Why the Koenigsegg Regera Doesn’t Need a Transmission
After each test, Koenigsegg Engineers strip the damaged body and subframes away and the cockpit is reused. That would be fine for most manufacturers, but they had to take it a step further. He purchased a supercomputer to chew away at each possible impact scenario. This is because the carbon fiber is so strong, it transmits loads directly to the subframes. The cradle that supports the suspension and the powertrain is designed to absorb the impact, destroying itself in the process. Unlike any other car in the world, this level of engineering ensures your money was well spent.
P.S. If you plan to jump your Koenigsegg, please turn on Waylon Jennings and make sure Boss Hogg’s plans are ruined.
