Tri-Tone Blue Koenigsegg Regera Is A Chin-Scratcher

The Koenigsegg Regera may have been first presented in production-spec two years ago but the Swedish marque has still brought along two examples to the ongoing Geneva Motor Show. This particular one, finished in all shades of blue, is the most head-turning.

As our images show, a large proportion of the body is painted a light shade of blue. If the whole car was finished like this, it would be a standout. However, Koenigsegg has decided to take things further and finished large sections of the exterior in blue-tinted carbon fiber, making for a two-tone theme somewhat reminiscent of Bugatti Veyrons of the past.

Evidently, the person who ordered this Regera really likes blue because things don’t end with the exterior. As a matter of fact, the vast majority of the cabin is bathed in turquoise materials. Driving in direct sunlight, we imagine it to be almost blinding.

What makes the Regera so unique from any other car before it is the powertrain. At the heart of the hypercar is a twin-turbocharged V8 engine paired to an electric motor and battery pack developed by Rimac. The result is over 1500 hp.

Also special with the Regera is its gearbox, or lack thereof. In place of a traditional transmission is the firm’s Direct Drive system. To ensure drivers still get the thrills they’d expect of an ordinary transmission, there is a clutch-slip mechanism that uses a hydraulic coupling to convert torque at medium/high speeds. This provides the impression of downshifting.

    As someone who loves blue, I have to say this is beautiful. Tastefully done.

    With the recent developments by McLaren and Aston in the hypercar space plus the latest Rimac Hypercar, the Regera is seeming less impressive….

    • I think every car occupied a different segment. And Regera is still impressive and fill the niche for GT comfortable supercar.

    Paint scheme isnt for me but this is one beautiful automobile, inside and out.
