Koenigsegg intends on taking the supercar throne by force

In Swedish, Regera means ‘to reign’, and Koenigsegg’s well-named first hybrid appears to have the power to do just that.

The Swedish manufacturer’s luxury megacar offers horsepower that climbs into the purely theoretical, via a 5-litre, twin-turbo internal-combustion engine that mates 1,100hp with an electric motor offering 700hp for performance that should be mind-blowing. 

It’s capable of 0-100kph in 2.8 seconds and can reach speeds of 400kph in under 20 seconds.

It’s a plug-in hybrid with the charging socket tucked away at the rear, above a cooling vent designed to mimic an exhaust. It’s also gorgeous, and I can’t wait to see one on the road.
