Koenigsegg Regera In Matte Black: So Drop-Dead Gorgeous, It Hurts

The Koenigsegg Regera is one world’s fastest and best-looking hypercars – and this video shows just how magnificent it looks.

The Regera in question is outfitted with the optional ‘Ghost Package’ that includes parts like a new front splitter and small winglets on the rear clamshell to increase downforce by an impressive 20 per cent.

We’re not sure who owns this Regera, but they clearly opted against a wild, brightly-colored exterior in favor of matte black that’s complemented nicely by a number of matte carbon fiber parts, including the huge rear wing and diffuser.

One of the most interesting things you may learn watching this video is that the exhaust isn’t actually the large oval which exits directly out of the rear. Instead, the Koenigsegg’s exhausts have been designed to look like fins of the rear diffuser and were made by Akrapovic.

The event where this video was shot was held in the Netherlands at the Assen circuit and the Regera was far from the only amazing ride featured. There were a number of other hypercars present, including a handful of other Koenigseggs, a unique McLaren Senna, a classic Pagani Zonda, orange Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, a Porsche Carrera GT, and a 2005 Ford GT.

Powering the Regera is a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 with three electric motors pumping out a combined 1,500 hp and 944 lb-ft (1280 Nm) of torque. Koenigsegg’s hypercar also famously lacks a traditional transmission and has an innovative Direct Drive instead.
