This might be the most insane hybrid “megacar” ever created.
Most automotive enthusiasts may have been waiting to see the Bugatti Chiron make its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, but it was the Koenigsegg Regera that arguably stole the show. Sure the Chiron can claim it’s the first production vehicle with 1,500 horsepower, but the Regera promises to deliver more. It may not see the same number of units being built over time, but that just makes the Regera more exclusive than the Chiron.

Along with promising to deliver over 1,500 hp, the Regera will have over 1,475 pound-feet of torque. That’s all combined with a car that ways an impressive 3,505 pounds wet, making it not only more powerful than the new Chiron but lighter as well. The number shows just what a difference performance is, with the Regera claiming to go zero-to-186 mph in just 10.9 seconds, while the Chiron needs 13.5 seconds. The Chiron however is faster off the line, going zero-to-62 in 2.5 seconds compared to the Regera’s 2.8 mark.
And yeah, it’s a hybrid with the world’s first 800-volt battery pack in a production car. Something tells us this is hardly the definition of going green.
