2018 Koenigsegg Regera review

The small Swedish automaker company has one upped itself with the 2018 Koenigsegg Regera model. This car is better in so many ways than anything else that they have made before. The last model which Koenigsegg made was their One: 1 model, but this one goes even more over the top and employs modern technology, modern mechanics and a modern way of designing cars which we have not witnessed so far.

The 2018 Koenigsegg Regera also adds plenty of features which are going to be added for the first time in this type of a car or actually all-together on the market. The car will actually be fully robotized thanks to the new use of hydraulics which the car employs. It will also add the first use of an active and fully foldable rear wing mounted on the top. It has plenty of features which are enough to make our heads spin.

One of the more interesting notes is that the 2018 Koenigsegg Regera is being developed alongside another vehicle in tandem. This is the first time Koenigsegg has done so as they are a small company which did not have the necessary capacity to develop more than one car at once. We will see if this proves to be favorable for them. All in all, this model promises to be one of the more desired vehicles within the next period.

When is the Release Date for the 2018 Koenigsegg Regera Expected?

The wonder car which is the 2018 Koenigsegg Regera is going to be made in limited numbers. Only 80 units have been ordered to be made and most of them have already been preordered. But the vehicle officially becomes available for sale in mid-2017 as a 2018 model. The price is also what limits the car and perhaps only the most enthusiastic car lovers will be able to get this one.

What is the Price?

The limited numbers for 2018 Koenigsegg Regera also means an expensive price tag. Koenigsegg is known for bringing us expensive and performance car which defy logic and sometimes the laws of physics. This one will do pretty much the same as the other cars have and it comes with a price of 2,000,000 dollars just for starters.

Exterior Redesign

Generally speaking, the new 2018 Koenigsegg Regera looks like a restyled Agera model. The only difference are some new additions which are contemporary in their sense and only include certain propulsion changes. The front end added an aerodynamic splitter which helps with the downforce and has also reshaped the air intakes. The side of the 2018 Koenigsegg Regera will be similar to other Koenigsegg products and vehicle. What makes it similar are the dihedral synchro-helix actuation doors which almost every models has. But the rear end is what makes the biggest difference compared to other products. The back side is hydraulically actuated and comes with a new rear wing and new LED lights. The Regera will have two exhaust tips down below instead of the traditional one which most of Koenigsegg vehicles had.

There are some additions which are specifically added to this model and are making their appearance for the first time. They will help the car become a faster and much suitable vehicle. For instance new aerodynamic winglets are added and newly developed carbon fiber wheels. The most interesting part is probably the electronic fuel socket which the car uses and the package will also add side air intakes and newly made rear-view mirrors.
