Like the concept, the production Regera manages without a traditional gearbox to keep the car lightweight. Koenigsegg calls its substitute a "Direct Drive" system. A clutch-slip mechanism uses hydraulic coupling to convert torque at medium to high speeds during acceleration, allowing the engine to gain revs and power. It's supposed to mimic the feel of downshifting.
One interesting feature on the Koenigsegg Regera is its Autoskin feature, allowing drivers to remotely open the doors and front and rear hoods in a unique fashion. Inside the cabin, the Regera comes equipped with creature comforts like heated seats, a rearview camera, Apple CarPlay compatibility, Wi-Fi, and inductive charging for cell phones. Deliveries of the Regera begin at the end of this year.
