Koenigsegg pays tribute to ‘Purple Rain’ with 402km/h Regera
Koenigsegg has decided to pay tribute to ‘Prince’ the singer/writer/composer/performer. The late singer’s signature colour has been used in this very special livery for their Regera hypercar featuring a purple carbon exterior finish combined with white striping and clear carbon side intakes.
This Koenigsegg Regera impresses not just with its design, but also once you take a look at its technical specifications: biturbo 5.0-liter V8 engine working with three electric motors to deliver a combined output 1,479 horsepower, 1,986 Newton-meters of torque. It uses the company’s own and very complex direct drive system.
The high-tech hardware enables the supercar run to 100km/h in just 2.8 seconds and top out at more than 402km/h, making it as quick as the Bugatti Chiron.
