Any car capable of 400km/h or 248.5mph is f**king fast. Doing it in less than 32 seconds seems f**king insane. Going from zero to 400 km/h and back to zero in 31.49 seconds in a “production car” is simply ridiculous, but not to Koenigsegg.
On Monday, September 23rd, a Koenigsegg Regera accelerated from 0 to 400 km/h and back to 0 in a mind-boggling 31.49 seconds at Råda airfield, Lidköping.
Piloted by Koenigsegg factory driver Sonny Persson, the record marks almost two years since Koenigsegg set a 0-400-0 km/h record using a production Agera RS in Nevada in just 33.29 seconds.
For those wondering about the power required to perform such a feat, the Regera is a hybrid. Unlike your sad Uncles Prius, the combined total of both power trains produces over 1500 hp (1.11 MW) and over 2000 Nm of torque.
CEO and Founder Christian von Koenigsegg commented on the achievement, “This was a good opportunity to showcase the true capability of the Regera’s one-of-a-kind Direct Drive transmission. As the Regera only has one gear we had to make use of it from standstill to the record top speed of 403 km/h (or 250 mph) limited by rpm.”
With this in mind, how long until The Regera challenges Bugatti’s 300MPG run
