The Koenigsegg Regera was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show by the Swedish hypercar maker. It was a radical departure from their tradition of making extreme, lightweight and race-like road cars, as it was Koenigsegg’s first hybrid model that was developed as a luxury ‘megacar’.
The Regera is powered by a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 paired with three electric motors, two in the front and one near the crankshaft. The motors produce a combined output of over 1,500 horsepower with over 2,000 nm of torque. The Regera is capable of accelerating from 0-100 kph in just 2.5 seconds, with a top speed of over 400 kph.
The Regera’s unique powertrain, named the Koenigsegg Direct Drive System, eliminates the traditional gearbox and instead uses a hydraulic coupling to transfer power directly to the rear wheels. This results in a smoother and more efficient power delivery, as well as a reduction in weight.
The Koenigsegg Regera is built with cutting-edge materials, including a lightweight carbon fibre monocoque and advanced aerodynamics, providing a perfect balance between performance and luxury. The Koenigsegg Regera is a marvel of engineering and design, offering a unique driving experience that combines raw power with unparalleled comfort. Only 80 units were produced, and 4 of them are in Japan.
This Regera is chassis 7169, the first Regera to arrive in Japan. It features a stunning gloss carbon fibre exterior that extends to the wing mirrors and Tresex AirCore wheels. The interior is finished in Blueberry Leather with Desiato (black) and Lingonberry (red) stitching. The brake callipers are also painted in blue.
In addition, chassis 7169 is equipped with the Ghost Package, which provides aerodynamic upgrades on the car’s front, rear and sides panels. An Environmental Power Upgrade was recently installed, which allows the Regera to have a massive output of 1.31 megawatts (1,757 horsepower), which is made possible using E85 biofuel.
Chassis 7169 was first delivered to its owner at the original BINGO Sports Tokyo Showroom in 2021, and made an appearance at the second BINGO Shooting Day on March 4th, 2022 at Fuji Speedway. In December 2022, the car was re-delivered by Christian Von Koenigsegg himself at the Koenigsegg headquarters in Ängelholm, Sweden. The Regera 7169 is now part of the BINGO Collection, alongside the red carbon 7202.
