Recently we talked about Rimac Concept One – the world’s fastest supercar that can accelerate from 0 to 60mph (100km/h) in just 2, 8 seconds and has amazing 1088HP.

 Well, as it turned out, 1088HP is not enough to be the number one and Rimac Concept One is overshadowed by 1,500 HP Koenigsegg Regera.

Koenigsegg Regera

The Regera made its debut at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show and was created as a luxury megacar alternative to Koenigsegg's traditional extreme lightweight race-like road cars. Even though the One:1 and the Agera RS have surprising levels of practicality, creature comforts and features, their primary focus is, and has always been, to be the overall fastest cars on the planet – around a racetrack or elsewhere.

Regera is Swedish for "to Reign" - a suitable name for a machine that offers a never seen before combination of power, responsiveness and luxury - creating a true Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde persona.

Lightweight structure

In spite of all its advanced technology and creature comforts, the Regera is comparatively light. Carbon fiber and Kevlar make up the body and aluminum mostly comprises the suspension. Koenigsegg uses its own carbon fiber wheels, as well. These advanced materials keep the curb weight down to 3,589 pounds (1,638 kg).

Under the hood

Under the Regera's hood lurks a 1,100-horsepower, 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that in and of itself is good enough to make the car one of the most potent hypercars in the world. But there's more. Along with the fueling burning engine, there's also a 700-horsepower electric motor. Koenigsegg claims that in tandem, the two motors can produce more than 1,500 horsepower.

This simply trounces the 918's 887 hp, the P1's 903 hp, and the LaFerrari's 949 ponies.

The Regera is also packed with some seriously cool driving tech. It's got fully active aerodynamics package that uses a lightweight hydraulic system to power adjustable front and rear wings, as well as the car's suspension.
