The 2017 Koenisegg Regera holds the distinction of being the fastest and most powerful production car ever manufactured. According to Koenisegg, the Regera is “the King of the Road, as the fastest accelerating, most powerful production car ever.” It is very hard to argue with this claim, especially considering the twin-turbo 5.0-liter V-8 engine under the hood that is supported by three electric motors that create a combined power output of 1500 hp and 1475 lb-ft of torque!
The Regera comes equipped with the Koenisegg Direct Drive Transmission (KDD). This system was designed by Christian von Koenisegg himself that has been specifically built to create “direct drive to rear axle from the combustion engine without the need of multiple gears or other traditional types of variable transmissions, with inherently high energy losses.”
When you consider the massive amount of power that the Regera displays being matched to a new transmission, it will come as no surprise that this Koenisegg rockets from a standing position to 248 mph in just 20 seconds! Combine this with a 0-60 time of 2.8 seconds and it becomes clear that the Regera is truly in a league of its own. Those that are looking to pick up the fastest and most powerful production car ever manufactured will definitely need to bring their wallet. The starting price for the 2017 Koenisegg Regera is a hefty $1.9 million.
