Experience An Exclusive Track Test With The 1,500 HP Koenigsegg Regera



A few weeks ago, we brought you an excellent POV video from AutoTopNL that showed some acceleration runs in the brutal Koenigsegg Regera. Now, we have a full-length clip from the YouTuber that provides a detailed look at the Swedish hypercar’s exterior design and its insane performance.

The Regera in question has been outfitted with the available Ghost Package that includes some aerodynamic upgrades, including additional fins on the rear wheel arches, a more pronounced front splitter, carbon fiber canards, and a few more touches. It is also equipped with lightweight carbon fiber wheels that not only look amazing but are also incredibly light.

The clip also offers us a detailed look at the engine and boy, what a powertrain it is. Situated behind the passenger cell is a 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine coupled with three electric motors that combine to produce no less than 1,500 hp and 944 lb-ft (1,280 Nm) of torque. This powertrain helped the Regera set a 0-400- km/h (0-248-0 mph) record of 31.49 seconds back in 2019.

Most of the action happens after the 12-minute mark when the YouTuber jumps into the Regera’s passenger seat with a Koenigsegg test driver behind the wheel. To get the tires warmed up, the driver performs a slalom at roughly 150 km/h (93 mph) down the carmaker’s runway, before pinning the throttle to show off the car’s remarkable straight-line performance. The driver then proceeds to do a slalom at roughly 220 km/h (136.7 mph), showing just how steady the car is during cornering.
