Koenigsegg Regera outperforms P1and LaFerrari performance

By Peter Chubb - Mar 2, 2015

It’s a great week for those of you that love technology and cars, as you not only have the Mobile World Congress to enjoy, but there is also the 2015 Geneva Motor Show to look forward to. There are so many new upcoming models heading to Europe, and we always enjoy looking at those concepts. However, we always love speed as well, which is why we are excited about the Koenigsegg Regera.

This new, outrageous model is set to be unveiled at Geneva, and one thing is clear from the start, it is going to outperform the McLaren P1, the Ferrari Laferrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder.

You might wonder why mention those three cars, well they all use a sort of hybrid system to generate more power, and a recent video has been shared, along with images thanks to TheSupercarKids that shows off its power-operated flap that helps to hide the charging port.

One thing is very clear though, while the P1, LaFerrari and 918 Spyder all have very similar power outputs and performance – although not that we will ever get to seem them pitted against each other – we know for certain that the Koenigsegg Regera will put all three to shame.

The Regera plug-in power output is still unknown at this time, although most rumors would suggest it will produce around 1,300 horsepower, with 700hp coming from electric power alone. Thankfully, we don’t have too long to wait to see just what it is Koenigsegg has been working on.

    I find it somewhat peculiar that you’d claim, without any official specs or head to head testing, that the Regera “will put all three to shame.” If I am to correctly extrapolate from those six words, I’m assuming that you are referring to Agera’s top speed. First, you couldn’t possibly know for sure unless you’ve driven all four cars and know firsthand each of their top speed. Secondly, even if your claim turns out to be correct, and it very well might be, based on the rumoured 1300hp, it still wouldn’t make it the best car. Top end speed does not equate to best. Also, and more importantly, how would this vehicle perform against the three hypercars around any given racetrack? As a true racing car fan, racetrack numbers, in my opinion, hold far more relevance and credibility. If Super car manufacturers like Bugatti and Koenigsegg, whose top speed, albeit impressive, but record relatively inferior track times, want to go head to head with the likes of, say, Laferrari, then let them dispense with the turbo chargers, build a naturally aspirated engine and then lets see how they stack up. Slapping turbo chargers on an engine in an effort to beat a non turbo engine vehicle, is not impressive.

      An old model of the Koenigsegg still performed very well at the Top Gear track (once they fitted it with a wing). Furthermore, Koenigsegg has promised to do the Nurburgring lap this spring to finally put an end to all comments similar to yours. Also, if you had an inkling of knowledge about Koenigsegg you would know that they are pioneering and inventing a lot of things, including camless engines, suspension configurations and carbon fiber rim/wheel techniques. Please show me a track on which a new model Koenigsegg has performed inferior lap times on compared to the other hyper cars. If you want to rip on “only top speed” companies, go to Hennessey.

        I didn’t say inferior, I said relatively inferior. There is a difference. I am making reference to the top gear track times. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not putting down Koenigsegg, as I know they make great cars. My point was that there were other cars with considerably less horse power posting faster times. More horse power does not necessarily equate to faster lap times. And I’m not ripping on top speed, I’m ripping on turbo charged vehicles trying to pit themselves against non turbo charged vehicles. At the risk of sounding redundant, I will once again state that if Koenigsegg wants to go head to head with Laferrari, then let them build a naturally aspirated engine and see what happens, and if Koenigsegg comes out on top I’ll be the first to praise them. BTW, who cares if they agree to do the Nurburgring, Who ever said that the Nurburgring is the paradigm or barometer of tracks by which all others are measured? Why not race at a high speed track like Monza or any other track in Europe? It’s a fact that one car may do well at one track and poorly at a different venue. So to use the Nurburgring as THE track to measure your definitive times, is, in my opinion, not absolutely conclusive as there are multiple variables involved. As I don’t know you, I would never make any assumption on my part to surmise, based on nothing, what you know or don’t know about cars or car manufacturers, as you have with me. Best regards.

      Utilizing turbos is not due to struggling to achieve power to compete with a higher displacement engine. Anybody can develop a naturally aspirated v12 with a crazy high compression ratio to make power. Its CAFE regulations and to create more fuel efficient engines and to be future conscious. And koenigsegg have incredible stability and traction control systems that makes them track monsters.
