Unveiling at Geneva International Motorshow Koenigsegg Regera Press release March 3, 2015
The Regera – A New Era The Regera was created as a luxury Megacar alternative to Koenigsegg’s traditional extreme lightweight race-like road cars.

According to us, the only Hyper/Megacar that could be faster around a circuit, [...]
