Koenigsegg is not a strange name. The Swedish automaker has wowed us again with another production vehicle… The Regera. It’s a plug-in hybrid that comes with 3 electric motors and a 5L, Twin-turbo V8 internal combustion engine. 40 units of this machine have been produced. And 40 more are expected soon. With 1,500 horses and a torque of 900 N.m, The Regera accelerates from 0 to 100 kmph in 2.8 seconds. And has a top speed of 410 kmph. It boast of a number of firsts… It’s the first fully robotized car. It’s also the first vehicle with the most power dense battery pack. It’s also the first car with the newly developed Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD) gear system, that works without a gear box. You read me right. It drives on a single transmission, with a ratio of 2.85:1. With a price tag of $1.9m, The Regera  is a must have.
