Swedish hypercar exotic brand Koenigsegg has gained world recognition and cult following over time – so no wonder the affluent peeps with huge bank accounts trust them to deliver no less than $152,000,000.
That’s the approximate worth – the figure could be much bigger because anyone can customize extensively the Regera for the right amount – of all the Regera examples sold to 80 people. So, officially, the hypercar costing $1.9 million a pop has reached sold out status. And while some automakers are rolling 80 examples of any given series each day in a single region, for Koenigsegg this is the largest single vehicle series ever. It’s also one of just two production models making up the company’s range – the other being the track-happy, but still road legal Agera RS.
The exotic Regera has mesmerized the future owners with its biturbo 5.0-liter V8 engine hooked to a trio of electric motors that will lend the hybrid monster a 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) acceleration of only 2.8 seconds en route to a top speed above the 250 mph (400 kph) threshold. Impressive – but even more so when you grasp the fact that said maximum speed is reached within just 20 seconds… And Koenigsegg is on a roll these days – it has also become a supplier for Spyker, providing them with a dry-sump 5.0-liter V8 engine for the C8 Preliator Spyder.
