Koenigsegg Regera

Koenigsegg has done it again with the Regera:

Like their previous 1,000-horsepower-plus supercar spectacles, the SSC and the Agera, they have created another insanely-powerful car. The Koenigsegg Regera has been built to churn out a phenomenal amount of power – 1,500-horsepower, to be exact.

Unbeknownst to those attending the show, the new Regera is a hybrid. Like the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1, the Koenigsegg Regera utilizes a normal gasoline-powered, twin-turbo V8 engine with an electric motor. Though, the Regera has three electric motors instead of one. The V8 engine has an output of 1,000-horsepower and the plug-in electric drive system adds another 500-horsepower for the combined output of 1,500-horsepower. When combined, under full throttle, the herculean amount of power will thrust the Koenigsegg Regera, all 3,131 pounds of it, from a standstill to 250-mph in less than 20 seconds. To stress the monumental achievement this is, the car will reach Mach 0.33 in less than one-third of one minute.

Only 80 will be made.
