Swedish supercar marque Koenigsegg had a trio of cars on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year. The One:1, an Agera, and the still-under-development Regera. Two of the cars ran up the hill, but the Regera was on hand mainly to cause intrigue and, ultimately, a twinge of jealousy at the 80 lucky souls who will eventually put one in their no-doubt stunning garages. Still, the Regera wasn't merely rolled into place. It was driven to its spot and, when it was driven to the truck to head back home, those with cameras, including YouTube user TheTFJJ, managed to capture a bit of its potential fury and engineering wizardry.
The Regera is a hybrid supercar that will boast 1,500 horsepower on tap. This energy is routed out to the ground from the engine and motors not by way of a multi-gear transmission or a CVT but rather a system called Direct Drive. This means no shifting, only moving forward while attempting to blacken both eyes of Mr. Physics. Koenigsegg claims the car will run from 0 up to the cars 248 mph top speed in less than 20 seconds.
Ludicrous speed, go!
But at the back lots of Goodwood, the Regera was captured being gently driven to its trailer. The engine sounded great, and the gauge cluster looks bright and brilliant. Additionally, the movement of the adjustable spoiler can be seen before the car is tucked away. It folds neatly down into the body, which we're assuming would be the default off position and also used for top speed runs.
Koenigsegg is currently taking orders for the car. Deliveries will commence next year. For more from Goodwood, head to our dedicated hub.
