King of the Road

It’s not only those amaz­ing doors and the key fob you put in the cen­tre con­sole that gives this su­per­car mas­sive ap­peal. What’s amaz­ing about Swedish car­maker Koenigsegg’s Regera (the name trans­lates as “to reign”) is that its twin-tur­bocharged V-8 cou­pled with three elec­tric mo­tors and a gear­less di­rect drive trans­mis­sion can pro­pel you from 0 to 400km/h in un­der 20 sec­onds, the fastest ac­cel­er­a­tion of any car on the planet. The petrol/hy­brid Regera is a high-per­for­mance lux­ury al­ter­na­tive to the more main­stream su­per­cars made by mar­ques such as Fer­rari and Lam­borgh­ini. In ad­di­tion to be­ing ridicu­lously fast, the megacar’s in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy in­cludes ac­tive en­gine mounts that trans­form it from a speed racer to a cool cruiser in an in­stant. With its sleek styling, spa­cious cabin dressed in thick brown leather and sil­ver trim, ad­justable mem­ory-foam seats and premium sound sys­tem, the Koenigsegg Regera blends out­ra­geous speed and supreme com­fort—at, of course, a kingly price. Pro­duc­tion is lim­ited to just 80.
