One of the 80 copies produced of the Koenigsegg Regera will be offered to the highest bidder at the Geared Online Scottsdale Edition sale organized by Gooding & Company from January 18 to 22.
The very rare Koenigsegg Regera is definitely making the news at auctions at the start of the year. A copy of the Swedish Hypercar will indeed be one of the headliners of the RM Sotheby’s sale in Scottsdale scheduled for January 22, and it will therefore also be on the program of the Gooding & Company sale organized in Arizona.
If you do not know the Regera, unveiled by the Swedish manufacturer at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, it is a Hypercar equipped with a hybrid powertrain articulated around a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 unit with which are associated three electric motors, the assembly developing a total power of 1,500 hp and 2,000 Nm sent to the vehicle’s wheels via the Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD) transmission developed in-house, which advantageously replaces the traditional gearbox.
The Koenigsegg Regera designed largely in carbon fiber, is adorned with an ultra light body with optimized aerodynamics, and displays a limited weight of 1,420 kg which allow it to offer formidable performance: it has also held since September 2019 the world record from 0 to 400 km / h followed by a complete stop, with a time of 31.49 seconds.
The model you have in front of you has been used very little by its first and only owner to date, having only covered 369 miles since it came out of the Ängelholm workshops. It comes with many options such as the Environmental Power Upgrade valued at $ 250,000, which provides additional 200 hp using E85 fuel, the Ghost Package (billed at $ 285,000) which improves aerodynamic qualities of the vehicle and guarantee it 20% more downforce, an exterior carbon pack ($ 103,700) and finally a set of Tresex Aircore carbon fiber rims alone worth $ 57,000.
In total, more than $ 710,200 of options were injected into this chassis produced in US specification, and sold $ 2,213,000 in its standard version. It is expected to change owners for an estimated amount of between 2.75 and 3.5 million dollars (between 2,260,000 and 2,875,000 €).
