Hear Me Roar: Koenigsegg Will Show A 1,500-HP Production Regera Hybrid at Geneva

The 2017 Geneva Motor Show is just around the corner, and carmakers are all about making waves there. Well, then, the luxury Sweden manufacturer follows the trend with three exotic-looking, stunning beauties; Christian von Koenigsegg is going to reveal two special Regeras along with the all-new Agera RS Gryphon in their true glory at the upcoming event.

After their debut more than a year ago, now the first production Regera models are set to be revealed at Geneva, in bare carbon fiber.  Offering no gearbox, the Regera supercar is actually considered to be a 1,500-hp hybrid where power comes from a twin-turbo V8 going to rear wheels via a direct drive system. To provide better aerodynamic properties, Koenigsegg built carbon fiber wheels along with the same body, not to mention a top-mounted rear wing. A roof panel should effortlessly be removed. Two majestic paint chooses, British Racing Green and Candy Apple Red, will also be offered, alongside with the same-hued leather interior. As for the Agera RS Gryphon, dubbed after a mythical creature, it will boast a clear carbon fiber exterior with rich golden trim accents and the optional 1MW engine. Can’t wait to enjoy it, too?
