2016 Koenigsegg Regera
The Koenigsegg Regera is the most powerful production sports car in the world. Only recently did we witness the Koenigsegg One:1 set an unbelievable world record, accelerating from 0-300-0 km/h in an astounding 17.95 seconds. After being unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Regera, a plug-in hybrid supercar promises to bring record-breaking results.
Combining both a twin-turbocharged 5.0L V8 engine with three electric motors, this powertrain produces a breathtaking combined output of 1.11 MW. Altogether the Regera produces more than 1,500 horsepower using just a single-speed gearbox, launching you to a top speed of 0-249mph in less than 20 seconds without even changing gear. In Swedish, ‘Regera’ translates as the verb ‘to reign’ – a very fitting name for the fastest production car in history, soon to brush aside the one and only Bugatti Veyron.
Forgetting the mind-blowing statistics, the Regera was also designed to be the most luxurious and practical model yet. The carbon-fibre futuristic design offers optimal aerodynamics and contemporary exterior lines.

The Regera is arguably the world’s greatest convertible supercar.

The 6-speed dual-clutch automatic offers the driver great handling and smooth gearshifts, a superb all-round driving experience.
The latest model combines a more contemporary TT design with clear influences of the R8. For example, the grille appears larger as the famous Audi rings are now on the bonnet, creating a more emphatic overall look. The latest model is constructed with an aluminium chassis weighs significantly less than previous versions. The interior of the Audi TTS features a more technically advanced multimedia system and a refined dashboard. Although the Audi TTS is obviously not as powerful as its competitors, its overall performance, reliable engineering and attractive design give it the edge.
