With over 1,500 horsepower on tap and a 0-60 mph time of only 2.8 seconds, the Koenigsegg Regera is one insane plug-in hybrid! The Koenigsegg Regera was introduced last year in concept form at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and now after some 3,000 changes, the Swedish automaker has unveiled the production version.

The Regera is powered by a biturbo 5.0-liter V8 engine, three electric motors and a unique Direct Drive system that eliminates the weight, complexity and mechanical losses that come with a traditional gearbox. The Regera also uses a 800 volt, 4.5kWh battery pack, making the Regera the world’s first 800V production car.
