The Koenigsegg Regera (Swedish for "to reign" or "to rule") is a plug-in hybrid targa-top hypercar created by Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg and unveiled at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show.

Description

Debuting at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show, the Koenigsegg Regera is Koenigsegg's first hybrid car and a more practical/luxury hypercar compared to the rest of Koenigsegg's line-up, which includes the Koenigsegg One:1 and Agera RS.

The Regera produces a reported total of 1797 hp (1340 kW) and 1608 ft·lb (2180 N·m) through a hybrid powertrain. However, because the internal combustion engine (ICE) in the Regera has a fixed gear instead of a gearbox and therefore only delivers peak power at a very high speed while the electrical motors in the Regera deliver their peak power at a lower speed, the power peaks of the ICE and the electrical motors are spread out, or not simultaneous, leaving a maximum combined mechanical output of 1479 hp (1103 kW) and 1475 ft·lb (2000 N·m) of torque. The ICE is a mid-rear mounted, in-house developed, twin-turbocharged V8 engine with a 5.0 L (5,032 cc; 307.1 cu in) capacity. It produces 1100 hp (820 kW) at 7,800 rpm and 944 ft·lb (1280 N·m) of torque at 4,100 rpm. It works in conjunction with three YASA electric motors with a total capacity of 697 hp (520 kW) and 664 ft·lb (900 N·m) of torque. One 215 hp (160 kW) electric motor on the crankshaft supplies torque fill while acting as both a generator and a starter motor and two 241 hp (180 kW) wheel shaft mounted electric motors drive the rear wheels and provide torque vectoring. The electric motors are powered by a 4.5 kWh, 800V, 165 lb (75 kg) liquid cooled battery pack developed by Rimac Automobili, making it the first 800 volt production car. Koenigsegg claims that the battery pack is the most power-dense battery pack ever created for a production car.

Christian von Koenigsegg invented the Koenigsegg Direct Drive System (KDD) and it was developed for the Regera by the Koenigsegg Advanced Engineering Team. The KDD system effectively eliminates the need for a transmission and allows for a pure EV (electric vehicle) mode. The Regera doesn't have a traditional multi-gear transmission but instead features a single-speed fixed gear transmission, often called a direct drive, with a 2.73:1 reduction ratio, meaning the crankshaft mounted on the ICE will rotate 2.73 times for every 1 time that the output shaft of the direct drive mechanism will rotate. At speeds below 30 mph (48 km/h), mostly the wheel shaft electric motors propel the car through the use of a hydraulic coupling that lets the ICE and the crankshaft mounted electric motor slip. In reverse, only the wheel shaft electric motors propel the car. Above 30 mph (48 km/h), the rpm of the crankshaft mounted electric motor and internal combustion engine are proportional to wheel speed through locking of the hydraulic coupling.

However, in the first driving footage from the Regera through Koenigsegg's official YouTube channel, Christian von Koenigsegg described and demonstrated how the Regera features a steering wheel mounted paddle that simulates a traditional downshift by initiating slip of the hydraulic coupling connecting the crankshaft to the output shaft. This results in higher rpm of the ICE and the crankshaft mounted electric motor and therefore higher power at lower speeds than what would have been possible if the coupling would have been locked at all times. Koenigsegg reported that the omission of a gearbox and addition of electric motors and battery only added 194 lb (88 kg) compared to what the Regera would have weighed with the same combustion engine but a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and no electric motors or batteries. The Regera has a weight of 3506 lb (1590 kg), resulting in a power-to-weight ratio of 930 hp (694 kW) per tonne or 2.37 lb (1.08 kg) per horsepower.[note 1]

The Regera also has an aero package that is available for purchase. This aero option adds carbon fiber canards to the front of the Regera's bumper and includes small wings that extend off the top of the rear fenders and angle back towards the active wing.

Asphalt 9: Legends

The Koenigsegg Regera appears as a high-end Class S car with the following rank statistics:

  • Stock rank: 3,460 (60 BPs)
  • 1* rank: 3,612
  • 2* rank: 3,793 (13 BPs)
  • 3* rank: 3,980 (16 BPs)
  • 4* rank: 4,176 (25 BPs)
  • 5* rank: 4,403 (38 BPs)
  • 6* rank: 4,616 (48 BPs)

Performance

The Regera has the highest top speed of any car in the game, at 273 mph (440 km/h). This comes at the cost of handling, drifting and nitro duration; performance aspects that the Bugatti Chiron is superior in. However, if managed properly, it can be competitive in multiplayer and events.

Koenigsegg Event

Between February 1 to 22, 2019, a Koenigsegg Regera Special Event and Leaderboard were available with up to 124 Regera blueprints being obtainable, divided into 77 obtained on player's own and 47 from clubs.

In response to the criticism surrounding the Bugatti Chiron Special Event, several changes were made, including a Car Hunt segment for one of the involved cars, the Vencer Sarthe on the second day, as well as ability to watch advertisements to obtain Blueprints for the other involved car, Apollo N; blueprints for both can still be obtained by tokens. In addition, previous Unleashed cars, Acura NSX (2017), Porsche 918 Spyder, and Pagani Huayra BC were also involved; the Special Event had been preceded by Encores for the latter two and a Car Hunt for the NSX, as well as the leaderboard segment on the final day made free try. However, there were no Regera-specific blueprint packs available for purchase, meaning that completing the event is the only way to obtain Regera blueprints during the event.

Between May 31 and June 7, 2019, Koenigsegg Regera specific packs were available in the shop.

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Summary

The Koenigsegg Regera won in the 2016 Community Car Poll alongside the Arrinera Hussarya GT, Aston Martin One-77, DC Avanti, Ferrari FXX K, Honda Civic Type R, Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4, Lexus LFA, Saleen S5S Raptor, and W Motors Fenyr SuperSport.

The Regera was added in the Showdown Update, three years after its initial appearance in the 2016 Community Car Poll.

The Koenigsegg Regera is a high-end Class S car with the following statistics:

  • Starting rank: 1626
  • MAX rank: 1759 (+133)
  • MAX+PRO rank: 1862 (+103)
  • Tuning Kit bonus: +67
  • Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 236
  • Upgrade rank percentages: 4/43/4/49
  • Nitro Efficiency: 6/11/15

Performance

At MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit, the Koenigsegg Regera has a top speed of 511.6 km/h. The Regera features rapid acceleration, though not as fast as that of the 2018 McLaren X2, thus making the Regera only competitive against the McLaren 600LT, Apollo Intensa Emozione and Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4. The Koenigsegg Regera has a decent nitro efficiency but has a mediocre drift radius, although the latter can be remedied with skill.

The Regera's stock top speed is much higher than most Class S cars at stock, which results in a rather mediocre improvement in top speed as the car is progressively upgraded. However, at MAX+PRO, the raw top speed is comparable to that of the McLaren 600LT, which means the mediocre increase in top speed would not offset the Regera's performance by a significant extent.

Usage

Though the Koenigsegg Regera is inferior to the 2018 McLaren X2 and McLaren 600LT, it is still as competitive as them. It is also the best Koenigsegg vehicle in the game, though it is very difficult to obtain due to its difficult R&D with Token-only upgrades and steep Pro Kit requirements. Nonetheless, should a Koenigsegg-only event appear, the Regera will be the best choice.

Price

The Koenigsegg Regera is only obtainable from its R&D event.

Upgrades cost A8Credits 2,765,000 + A8Tokens 10,000 while Pro Kits require A8Credits 1,375,200, 50 of each Class S Part, 92 V8 Engines and 160 Advanced Techs.
