What do you do when you have an empty road and a 1,500 hp Koenigsegg Regera? You push the pedal down and burn as much rubber as possible.
You see, the Regera has a 5.0-liter V8 engine that has two turbochargers attached and electric motors. This powertrain is what gives the hyper-super-ultra-mega car it’s power output of 1,500 horsepower and 1,475 lb-ft of torque. But, what’s even cooler than this power(I know, it’s hard to believe), is the fact that the all of this power is routed through no gearbox. Seriously, it has one gear, meaning you don’t have to worry about shifting as your hit ungodly speeds in the Swedish monster.
To show off what it’s like to lay down the Regera’s power all at once, Koenigsegg uploaded a video of them destroying tires in the hypercar. You can check it out below.
Did someone say party? We’ll bring the smoke machine!!!!
