The Koenigsegg Regera pictured here is the same car that took the 2015 Geneva Motor Show by storm. This is the prototype, and we’re among the first outsiders in the world to get a crack at the hypercar that signals a new chapter in terms of design and technology for the boutique Swedish brand. This car in particular is a fair bit outside industry norms: Most auto show queens can barely eclipse walking speed; this one will reportedly touch 249 mph. The production version aims for 255.
Koenigsegg won’t begin delivering fully baked models of the Regera until September. It plans to build only 80 copies of the 1,500-horsepower, carbon monocoque monster for about $1.89 million a pop, with half of them already spoken for. The Regera is stunning to look at, but when it comes to this car, it’s the drivetrain that’s the star of the show.
