Koenigsegg intends to take the supercar throne by force

In Swedish, Regera means “to reign,” and Koenigsegg’s well-named first hybrid looks 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-liter, twin-turbo internal-combustion engine that mates 1,100 hp with an electric motor offering 700 hp for performance that should be mind-blowing. 

It’s capable of 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds and can reach speeds of 250 mph 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.
