Were you about to head over to Ängelholm, Sweden to talk to Christian von Koenigsegg about ordering a new Koenigsegg Regera? I have bad news for you, because Koenigsegg announced today (June 13, 2017) that all of the Regeras are sold out.
Yes, that means all 80 units of the Regera hypercar that Koenigsegg plans to make have been spoken for, making it the largest single vehicle series in the automaker’s history.
“The Regera is a new high watermark for Koenigsegg Automotive” said company founder and CEO, Christian von Koenigsegg. “It has been our greatest technical challenge and as such, it is also our greatest technical triumph. That our customers and dealers have seen and appreciated the work we’ve done on the Regera is a source of great pride for everyone at Koenigsegg.”
The Koenigsegg Regera is not only extremely limited, but also extremely…extreme. This new hypercar car combines a twin-turbo V8 engine with electric motors to produce an astonishing 1,500 horsepower and 1,475 lb-ft of torque. This power, along with the new Koenigsegg Direct Drive transmission, the Regera can rocket from 0 to over 248 mph in just about 20 seconds. That’s just insanity.
So, congratulations to the 80 that claimed the Regeras– if you’re ever in Florida, I’d be more than willing to drive you around in your new hypercar.
