There has been a huge increase in the production of hybrid supercars in recent years, all the major players have taken a shot a producing the ultimate hybrid supercar… Koenigsegg it appears has put all their efforts to shame!
The Koenigsegg Regera Hybrid is based on the Koenigsegg Agera One:1 which was released last year. It has the same 5.0 litre twin turbo V8 engine, but also has additional electric motors which allow it to generate an extra 700 bhp! That means the Regera Hybrid has a mind boggling 1,500 bhp in total….this allows you to either run the car on pure electric or both, it is this combination that Keoenigsegg say makes it ‘the most powerful production car ever.’
The Koenidsegg Regera Hybrid can be plugged-in just like other hybrids, this action charges the 9-kWh, 620 – volt battery, which the car will switch over too when approaching a charging station in order to drain the battery and preserve its life. Now that’s clever!
Details? Unfortunately we have very few, we are yet to be told about its exact price or its performance figures, but if we were to take a wild guess we’d reckon that it will be both pricey and fast! If early reports are to be believed the Regera Hybrid will do 250 mph in under 20 seconds and accelerate from 93mph to 155mph in 3.2 seconds!!!!:0
Want one? Well you better act fast, Keoenigsegg say they will only make 80 and if the stats above are genuine you can guaranty that they will be snapped pretty quickly.
The car was officially unveiled last week at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show where it unsurprisingly stole the show.
