Koenigsegg Automotive AB are proud to present the following vehicles at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show:

  • Production Spec Koenigsegg Regera
  • Koenigsegg Agera ‘Final’
  • Koenigsegg Agera RS

Koenigsegg Regera – Production Specification

Koenigsegg Automotive AB is proud to unveil the Koenigsegg Regera in production specification, signaling a new era in Megacar performance.

The Koenigsegg Regera was introduced in concept form at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show to a rousing reception. Numerous customer orders were received during the show and have continued at a steady pace as the wider Koenigsegg family learns about the all-new philosophy and technology behind the Regera.


The 12 months since Geneva 2015 has seen the Regera evolve from a promising concept into an astounding reality, with the car put through an intense period of development, testing and homologation for worldwide sale.

So extensive was this development period, in fact, that over 3,000 changes were made to the concept vehicle. The weight savings achieved resulted in a curb weight – complete with all water, oils and fuel – of just 1590kgs. Dry weight is 1470kgs.

Koenigsegg Direct Drive

The patent-pending Koenigsegg Direct Drive system was the biggest challenge in the Regera development process, but it has also provided the biggest rewards. This is brand new technology that eliminates the weight, complexity and mechanical losses that come with a traditional gearbox. The end result is seamless, effortless driving that features blistering acceleration unlike any other car.

A number of enhancements have been made to elements of the Direct Drive system throughout the development process, making the Regera even more revolutionary than first envisioned.

Koenigsegg has developed a clutch-slip mechanism that uses the hydraulic coupling to convert torque at medium/high speeds during fast acceleration. This allows the combustion engine to gain revs and power, thereby giving the sensation of a traditional downshift with the associated aural enjoyment, even without the traditional gearbox.

Shift paddles remain on either side of the steering wheel. The left paddle is used to enhance the regenerative braking effect in recharging the battery pack. The right paddle is used to activate the hydraulic coupling’s ‘downshift’ operation.

Extreme Battery Technology

Koenigsegg worked extremely hard to find the best performing and safest battery pack possible for the Regera. This research and testing has resulted in an 800 volt, 4.5kWh battery pack, making the Regera the world’s first 800V production car.

This extreme battery technology will now provide an amazing 525kW of discharge and up to 200kW of recharge.

The Koenigsegg Regera battery pack also boasts the highest cooling capacity of any battery in automotive use today. All electric vehicle manufacturers use coolant piped around the battery pack to draw heat from the batteries. There is always an area that traditional cooling pipes cannot reach, however. The Regera battery pack is housed in a sealed unit featuring optimized local coolant flooding across all critical heat-sensitive elements. Every critical surface within and around the battery stack is cooled as efficiently as possible.

The pièce de résistance is the battery pack’s weight. The battery pack used in the production Regera uses Formula 1 grade, hand built cells that not only provide improved performance and regenerative capability, but also save 25kg in weight compared to the battery in the concept vehicle. This new, Formula 1 grade battery pack now weighs a mere 90kg whilst providing enough power to help the Regera to accelerate to 300km/h in just 10.9 seconds.

A New Breed of Performance

The Koenigsegg Regera represents a new and unprecedented era of high performance motoring. This is thanks to the car’s massive 1500+ hp output, 2000+ Nm of torque and the Koenigsegg Direct Drive system used to put this power to the ground.

The Regera will reach 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, 0-200 in just 6.6 seconds and 0-300 in a blistering 10.9 seconds. Koenigsegg estimate a 0-400 km/h time of 20 seconds and acceleration from 150 to 250km/h in just 3.9 seconds.

Despite such scintillating performance, Regera owners can also expect the most refined driving experience yet from a Koenigsegg car. New active engine mounts provide a sense of isolation and peace within the cabin at lower speeds, but firm up for a more active driving experience when required – a true Jekyll and Hyde proposition.

Auto Motor and Sport was the first, and the only magazine so far, to test drive the Regera prototype. This is what they had to say:

“Power has never, and I say never, been this brutal, efficient and easy to use. This is a game changer of biblical proportions……. THE KING!”

New Solutions from In-house Research

Although small, Koenigsegg has always been a remarkably self-sufficient and extremely vertically integrated vehicle producer focused on in-house solutions developed at the Koenigsegg facility in Ängelholm.

Components that all other manufacturers buy in such as, wheels, brake calipers, engine and transmission management systems are all designed, engineered and built in-house Koenigsegg. Similarly, the entire mechanical drivetrain from combustion engine to DirectDrive unit, is all created by Koenigsegg. The benefit of working this way is that critical systems get seamlessly integrated and continuously optimized over time, to levels otherwise unobtainable.

A shining example of the above is that the hydraulic coupling used in the Regera was designed and developed completely in-house. The “HydraCoup” can provide slip with very limited heat build-up while maximizing torque conversion and lock-up functionality. It is light, strong and efficient, weighing no more than the lightweight dry clutch in the Agera. It also looks like a piece of artisan jewellery. The only way to reach the goals of low weight and maximum torque transfer was to do it in-house as nothing available in the market place came close to the required specification.

These solutions, along with a new external high voltage DC charger, smaller 800V AC compressor and a new super-compact bespoke and lightweight 800V DC/DC converter all mean that the production version of the Regera is significantly lighter than the prototype it is based on, which is highly unusual when progressing to production-ready materials.

Comfort, Convenience and Technology

The interior of the Regera features optimum comfort and functionality.

Koenigsegg’s unique ‘Autoskin’ function allows the driver to open the doors and front and rear hoods remotely using a lightweight hydraulic system. Buttons for operation of ‘Autoskin’ are available both on the driver’s remote control key and via the centre console inside the car.
Additional compartments have been fitted in front of the driver and passenger, where personal items such as phones, wallets, etc can be stored.

The wing mirrors now fold automatically when the doors open to further increase the practicality of the dihedral synchrohelix door actuation system. Furthermore, as the Autoskin function allows for the doors to open automatically, we have fitted the doors and wing mirrors with proximity sensors in order to safeguard against the doors striking nearby objects (curb, low roof, etc) while opening or closing.

To complement the rear camera and the side door cameras, there is also the option of a forward facing camera that works together with the other cameras in the car to enable a birds-eye view of the of the car while parking or maneuvering in confined areas.

Apple CarPlay is standard equipment in the Regera and with Wi-Fi functionality, there is no longer any need to connect a phone via USB. Inductive charging ensures that an owner’s phone remains ready for use once a journey has ended.

The seats now feature heating and electrical adjustment with memory function. All in all the Regera is truly a fusion of luxury, comfort and race car performance. Compromise is avoided at all cost. A sense of theatre, mega-performance, luxury and light weight are all in equal focus like never before.


Koenigsegg’s vision has always been to find the best possible solution to a given challenge. Our enduring goal is maximum performance; the pursuit of automotive perfection. The Regera is the latest embodiment of that vision.

It is an extraordinary leap into the future of extreme high performance motoring. Whether it be a contest of performance or a contest of ideas, the Regera concedes nothing. It is a gracious grand tourer, a technical tour-de-force and of course, we still maintain that the only way to be faster around a racetrack than the Regera is to drive another Koenigsegg.

It is yet another car from Ängelholm to earn the Megacar moniker.

All new technologies developed by Koenigsegg have integrated seamlessly into the Regera to enhance the total experience and give our customers the best luxury performance car available for sale in the world today.

We are very much looking forward to sharing the Regera experience with the world over the coming months as we commence the build of customer cars in the immediate future and deliveries at the end of 2016.


Koenigsegg Agera ‘Final’

Koenigsegg Automotive AB is pleased to announce the creation of a new, completely bespoke limited edition called “Agera Final”. This series will be limited to just three vehicles, which will be the last of the Agera model line.

All three vehicles were sold prior to their announcement at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.


The Koenigsegg Agera RS was an outstanding success. Unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, all 25 cars scheduled for production were sold within 10 months, making the Agera RS the fastest selling model line in Koenigsegg’s history. The Agera Final series is both a celebration of this success and a fitting conclusion to the Agera model line.

The Agera Final program will give owners unprecedented input into the design and specification of custom made parts for their car.

The Koenigsegg “One of 1” has been prepared especially for the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and is the first of the Agera Final series.

Building “One of 1”

As its name suggests, the “One of 1” is a unique vehicle that will never be duplicated. It features the following unique, customized and upgraded elements:

  • Custom designed top-mounted rear wing with second blade
  • Custom designed roof-mounted air intake
  • Custom designed Koenigsegg shield mesh at rear
  • Custom badging on wing, side and interior of vehicle.
  • 3D Printed twin-exit titanium exhaust outlet with imprinted “One of 1” name
  • Custom designed venturi at rear with adjustable winglets
  • Custom designed triple winglets on front bumper
  • Custom designed One of 1 front splitter
  • Custom designed paint finish with partial clear carbon
  • Custom polished aluminum interior switchgear


The Agera Final program has been designed specifically with a view to optimizing the vehicle for the customer’s desired purpose. In the case of the “One of 1”, the customer wanted an Agera that would be as close to a One:1 as possible in performance terms, while retaining the roof window, stowable roof and full luggage space.

The “One of 1” is fitted with an upgraded 1MW engine and weighs just 1380kg with all fluids and fuel on board. Dry weight is 1285kg.

The Koenigsegg One:1 featured front air vents and a top-mounted air intake that were significant in increasing downforce and performance but took away the ability to store the removable roof in the front of the car. Koenigsegg designers worked directly with the owner of the “One of 1” to overcome this compromise and deliver a solution that maintains our unique roof and luggage storage system while still adding aerodynamic and performance benefits.

A new double-blade rear wing, air intake, front splitter, side skirts, venturi and triple-front winglets were all designed specifically for the “One of 1” using computational fluid dynamics to optimize downforce and maintain a fully functional luggage area at the front of the car.

This solution involved customized design, tooling and fabrication of one-off parts that will only be used on the “One of 1” – a truly bespoke approach to create a Koenigsegg that will never be duplicated.

At-cost options, now standard

The Agera Final is a celebration of the Agera range and as the last models to wear the Agera badge, the Final is a limited edition of considerable importance.

It is fitting, then, that the Agera Final models not only receive bespoke aerodynamic treatments, but also have full access to the Koenigsegg equipment list, with all options available as standard equipment at no extra cost.

Popular options, now available as standard on the Agera Final, include:

  • The 1MW engine upgrade, which allows customers to feel the full power of the Koenigsegg twin-turbo V8 under foot, with 1,360hp and 1,371Nm of torque available for the ultimate in performance.
  • Koenigsegg’s unique Aircore™ hollow carbon fibre wheels, which weigh less than 7kgs each and save over 20kg in unsprung mass compared with Koenigsegg’s lightweight, regular wheels.
  • A clear carbon finish, or partial clear carbon, which shows the beautiful weave of the Agera’s carbon fibre body panels, is also available at no extra cost.

A finale worthy of an ovation

The Agera range has consolidated Koenigsegg’s reputation for building the ultimate in performance vehicles ever since its launch in 2010.

The Agera immediately won acclaim with the Top Gear ‘Hypercar of the Year’ award in its launch year.

The Agera R set a blistering pace from 0-300-0km/h in just 21.19 seconds in 2011.

The Agera S saw Koenigsegg debut an industry first with our Aircore™ carbon fibre wheels, which are still the only OEM-manufactured carbon fibre wheels in the industry.

The Agera range inspired the One:1 series, the first production car with a power-to-weight ratio of 1:1 and a car that set records at tracks around the world. The One:1 also blitzed the 0-300-0km/h record set by the Agera R with a time of 17.95 seconds, more than 3 full seconds ahead of the original mark.

The Agera RS, with 25 examples to be built, became Koenigsegg’s fastest selling car in January 2016 with all 25 cars sold in just 10 months.

Agera Final models will be built for delivery towards the end of 2017.

Power and Control

The Agera RS features Koenigsegg’s potent 5.0 litre 32-valve V8 engine with multipoint fuel injection controlled by engine management technology developed in-house at Koenigsegg.
Boost is provided by twin ceramic ball bearing turbochargers, a patented backpressure reduction system and variable turbo geometry producing 1.3 bar of boost pressure. The engine produces a staggering 1160hp at 7800rpm (232hp per liter of displacement) and 1280Nm of torque on 95 RON fuel.

Power is delivered via a 7-speed sequential transmission built to Koenigsegg specifications by CIMA, the world’s preeminent gearbox developer and a supplier to Formula 1 teams since 1957. The transmission and differential are both controlled by software developed in-house by Koenigsegg.

The Agera RS’s suspension starts with our super-stiff carbon fiber monocoque with integrated fuel tank. Weighing in at just 72kg, the monocoque has an industry-leading 65,000Nm per degree of torsional rigidity. This stiffness allows Koenigsegg’s suspension the independence it needs to keep the car’s extraordinary power to the ground.

The suspension system includes double wishbones front and rear, with electronically adjustable gas-hydraulic dampers made for Koenigsegg by Ohlins of Sweden. Together with Koenigsegg’s patented Triplex suspension, this allows the Agera RS to pull up to 1.75 lateral G.

Power is nothing without control.

Agera RS Success

The Agera RS is an edition of 25 cars that premiered at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The 25th and final car of the series was sold in January 2016, just 10 month after release, making the Agera RS the fastest selling model in Koenigsegg history.

The final Agera RS is scheduled for completion and delivery in 2017.

    Hey Mr. von Koenigsegg!

    I just want you to know how speechless I am now that I’ve just finished reading your article about these three simply SUPERB cars.
    I mean, I had absolutely no words for you. Nope. Zilch. Nada. It is in fact so, so AMAZING how you manage to keep pushing the boundaries of excellence all the time. It can be seen with every launch of your new cars, every single one, and they just keep getting better and better. Is there no end to how you manage to keep coming up with all these new ideas to make your cars truly the very definition of “Awesomeness”? Obviously not. And don’t anyone tell you different.

    When you told all of us that you were going to alter the Regera a little to bring it to production specs, I don’t think we expected such a dramatic change! Causing the car to shed even more weight?Check. Giving it a spankin’-hot shade of Racing Red?Check. I can really start to understand how much you don’t like the word “compromise” Mr von Koenigsegg. With this car, we can remove it from your dictionary now.By the way, doesn’t the 0-60 mph time of 2.8s put it on par with your rivals? I’m sure it does.

    What really surprised me about the new Agera One of One is the fact that customers can choose to opt for the 1 MW 5.0 liter V-8 beast that we all know too well, since it sits under the hood of the One:1. And forgive me for jumping on the bandwagon for this, but does this mean that you can now continue to set world track records, since it’s like the One:1 in performance? Just a thought.

    Last of all but never the least, I must congratulate you Mr. von Koenigsegg, for the new paint-language you have gone with! All three cars, the Agera RS included, look hot and sexy enough to make the hypercar segment reach fever pitch!

    Congratulations again on blowing us all away,
    Nimalan S. R.

    I am totally in love with the beautiful, stunning Koenigsegg rulers, and amazed that again you’ve managed to push the boundries and deliver incredible results in even more beautiful designs! You definitely rule the Supercar World, nobody can measure up to you! I read all your posts here but usually only reply on Twitter (I love your tweets, pls keep ’em coming as much as possible!) but I just had to applaud you with these amazing results! I hope one day I can gush about these beautiful cars up close at your factory… that would be so great…!

    This easily has to be my favorite article that has ever been posted on this page. Gaining an even deeper of the Regera was helpful, given that no other hybrid car can possibly match that of the Regera’s specs.

    As for Chassis #7118, i think that is one of the most beautiful Koenigsegg models that I’ve ever seen. I have rarely seen a picture of one in yellow/gold. Normally, i am not very fond of the color yellow, but i think it looks absolutely gorgeous on the Agera RS. Sort of looks like a sunrise. Whoever owns that chassis put a lot of love into making it stand out even more than the car in itself.

    My favorite part of this story(and the most emotional)is by part the Agera Final program. Ever since the very first Agera was unveiled, you all have done an extraordinary job making each following model better and better. Every new Agera seemed to have something new that the previous model didn’t have.

    I found it very interesting to find out that the roof of the One:1 was not stowable. I always assumed that since the roofs of the Agera R and Agera S can be stored in the car, it must work for the even-better One:1. Furthermore, I thought the One:1 would always be the best Agera-type model. But hearing that the One of 1 is all but a One:1 with a stowable roof was outstanding. As always, you all continue to make the best even better.

    I am really gonna miss the Agera lineup 🙁 and you guys have certainly saved the best for last with the One of 1. But i am also very excited to find out what new creations you all have rolled up your sleeves.

    Btw Mr. Wade, i have a suggestion for you guys. Yesterday I watched an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage where Jay was given the opportunity to review and test drive a privately owned CCXR Trevita with Christian. Jay mentioned at the end that three would be built since Trevita means ‘three doves’. But then i learned that only two were built. I think you all should make that last car 🙂

    Koenigsegg once again have exceeded my expectations! Which is rather amazing since I have access to many of the hidden technologies within our US military industrial complex(black programs). I have been watching for the last few years the advances made by your company and no words can describe it but amazing, Being a blue color guy I simply loved the prototype color Regera, However just looking at pictures of this Red Regera just make me wish I could get my hands on it. Will wait for the ultimate Koenigsigg to be built soon.
    Great job guys and I love how your company is expanding.

    As always I am completely stunned by the cars koenigsegg produce. As I was checking out the competition to Regera I realised that bugatti still claims to have the strongest, how come?

    • Comment by George Lekkas

      George Lekkas March 3, 2016 at 08:50

      Both Regera and Chiron make around 1500 horsepower BUT in terms of wheel horsepower, Regera makes more power in the real world due to limited drivetrain losses. Moreover, regarding torque, Chiron makes only 1600 Nm while Regera outputs 2000 Nm. Additionally, Chiron weighs 2 tonnes while Regera only 1.6
      If you add the weight of a driver the final numbers are approximately these: Power to weight ratio= Chiron: 1.4 kg / HP Regera: 1.1 kg/ HP. That explains why Regera does 0-300 km/h in under 11 seconds while Chiron takes 13.6 seconds….

    First off…amazing job!!! i have been following the Koenigsegg brand for many years and I love the way that it has been progressing. I am very sad that I was unable to make it to the Geneva show this year because I live in the US. I was wondering if Koenigsegg is going to be able to make it to the New York Show this year because that would be fantastic! It would be even better if you brought a CC8S. Thank you guys for the amazing ingenuity and I look forward to more in the future! You guys are awesome!!!!!

    Congratulations! Regera is officially the quickest car in the world from 0 to 400 km/h!
    The new Bugatti Chiron does not come even close….. I only have one question though. Will you guys test Regera’s acceleration this year at your private runway? We all want to see a Vbox Video from that run, be it HD or not. Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Extremely exciting to read about the latest Koenigsegg releases.
    The technical solutions sound ingenious and craftsmanship seems overwhelming.

    Wish I could afford such a dreamcar, too.

    By the way, I stumpled upon the following sentence…

    “birds-eye view of the of the car while parking or maneuvering in confined areas.”

    You might want to get rid of one “of the”! 😉
