2016 Koenigsegg Regera Details
2016 Koenigsegg Regera: 1500 Horsepower, Single-Speed Gearbox
In Swedish, “Regera” signifies “to rule,” and with 1500+ hp and a cost of around $1.9 million, the 2016 Koenigsegg Regera is really an individual from hypercar eminence. It’s a module half and half that uses a twin-turbo 5.0-liter V-8 and three electric engines to accomplish its unbelievable yield. Koenigsegg claims it can hit 62 mph in 2.8 seconds and 249 mph in 20 seconds. Just 80 Regeras will be created, so on the off chance that you don’t have your request in yet, it’s likely past the point of no return. The Regera moves quick, truly and allegorically.
Koenigsegg has fabricated less autos amid its whole presence than Ferrari produces in a solitary week, but then the Swedish hypercar producer has turned out to be disproportionally capable at winning features. Take for instance the Regera, the organization’s all-new model and an auto that makes the 1341-hp One:1 that we drove in the no so distant past look somewhat underpowered.
The figures are some place past being just scary. The Regera takes after the illustration set by the McLaren P1, the Ferrari LaFerrari, and the Porsche 918 by utilizing a mixture drivetrain, though one totally not at all like anything we’ve seen some time recently. It utilizes both a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 motor and three electric engines for an aggregate consolidated yield of 1.11 megawatts, which proselytes to 1509 metric pull—or 1489 strength on America’s SAE gauge. Koenigsegg claims the 0-to-400-kph (249 mph) increasing speed time of under 20 seconds makes the Regera—Swedish for “to rule”— the speediest quickening auto on the planet.
A Look that Is . . . Downplayed?
We’ll get to the powertrain in a moment—trust us, it’s ideal to take a keep running up—yet initial, a word about the configuration. Maybe the most astounding thing about the styling is that Koenigsegg did it totally in-house and with no expert architects. The Regera is proposed to be a more rich different option for the current Agera model. From the front, it looks totally changed—you could call it downplayed by all accounts. The side and back profiles are commanded by the air channels and the enormous deployable back wing. The lodge is the greatest astonishment; Koenigsegg’s past models have all had cockpits like blinged-up Group C racers, however the Regera looks rich and open by examination, the huge focal presentation screen even elements Apple CarPlay.
Out Go the Gears
Furthermore, now on to the drivetrain. The gas side components the novel Koenigsegg Direct Drive transmission: in actuality, a solitary pace gear lessening for the forceful V-8 motor. Between the motor and the 2.85:1 back conclusive drive there’s no traditional gearbox, only a pressure driven coupling that, when shut, joins the two straightforwardly. Beneath 30 mph, this can slip somewhat, yet it isn’t an appropriate grip and won’t give drive at low speeds where the Regera depends rather on its electric engines. Above 30 mph, the Regera’s motor speed and wheel speed ascend in direct extent, with the motor’s 8250-rpm redline relating to the top rate of 249 mph. (Honda’s Accord crossover and Accord module half breed use single-velocity transmissions that are comparable in idea, despite the fact that we wouldn’t be astonished if Christian von Koenigsegg wasn’t even mindful of the presence of those 114-mph family vehicles.)
Koenigsegg Direct Drive may seem like the answer for a nonexistent issue, however the organization guarantees that the absence of a customary gearbox both spares weight and decreases the force lost to the driveline by more than 50 percent contrasted with a conventional transmission. What’s more, the electric engines give the capacity to fill in where the V-8 is delivering less power furthermore to include additional execution top of it, the distance to the Regera’s top pace. There are three YASA hub flux engines, which are lighter than the more regular spiral flux engines. Two 241-hp adaptations drive the back wheels—and give torque vectoring—and a 215-hp engine on the crankshaft supplies torque fill furthermore goes about as both a generator and a starter engine.
The 620-volt battery pack sits in the case spine where it takes up 2.4 cubic feet of space and weighs 254 pounds. Koenigsegg says it’s the most power-thick battery pack made for a street auto, with a 9.27-kWh limit. Colossal stream rates—up to 671 strength can be supplied amid full increasing speed and 201 drive can be consumed amid regenerative braking. What’s more, yes, the procurement of a 3-kW locally available charger implies that the Regera is a module, with an asserted electric-just scope of 22 miles. We’re told the whole transmission including the electric engines and the battery pack adds only 194 pounds to the Regera’s weight contrasted and its mass in the event that it had been worked with quite recently the V-8 and the organization’s current seven-speed robotized transmission.
One of a kind Among Hypercars
“This is obviously altogether different to what individuals are utilized to in games autos,” conceded organization originator Christian von Koenigsegg, including, “It’s pleasant to move down, hear the motor yell and afterward shoot off. In any case, given the monstrous electrical backing and the force of the inner ignition motor more than 2500 rpm, the experience is powerful. At low rpm, the motor will in any case feel really massive as the consolidated torque is amazing. The enjoyment of moving down and getting ready for the speeding up is immediately overlooked and not missed. It should be experienced.”
Good fortunes with that last point. Only 80 Regeras will be delivered, every one directing a beginning cost of $1,890,000 before any charges or expenses. That aggregate is overwhelming, certain, yet it additionally appears like an odd kind of deal when the track-just P1 GTR costs more than $3 million. And afterward there’s this: The Regera will be offered in the U.S. as a completely governmentally agreeable model, most likely right on time one year from now.
