We weren't supposed to see the Koenigsegg Regera until tomorrow. But this Instagram from Lovecars just came out along with their story. Guess what? It has 1,500 horsepower and can hit 248 MPH in less than 20 seconds. 248 in less than 20 seconds. HOLY SHIT.
The Regera is a totally new car from Koenigsegg unlike anything they have ever made. First off, it's a hybrid, with 700 horsepower from its electric motors alone. Koenigsegg says that it isn't a hybrid, and actually uses the electric power and nine kWh battery with something called the Koenigsegg Direct Drive, which we'll know more about tomorrow.
Inside, it has Apple CarPlay, 3G, WiFi, and a camera.
And it can get to 248 in less than 20 seconds. We said that three times, but that is ridiculous. To give you some semblance of a benchmark, the Porsche 918 goes from 0 to 186 MPH in 23.0 seconds. The Koenigsegg can hit a speed that is 60 MPH higher in less time.
That's all we know right now. We'll have the full story tomorrow as more details are revealed.
0 to 248 in less than 20 seconds. Jiminy jilickers.
