Christian von Koenigsegg is one of the most inventive and creative automaker chiefs of all time. Just eight months ago, he came up with an idea for his first hybrid supercar, the Regera, though he refuses to call it a hybrid. But unlike every other supercar, this one has no gearbox whatsoever. How the hell does that work?
In the past, Koenigsegg has stated how much he dislikes electric power and hybrid powertrains. The One:1 was designed to compete with hybrid supercars like the LaFerrari and McLaren P1 without any hybrid assistance. It was a giant FU to cars that needed hybrid power to reach new levels of performance.
