Koenigsegg Regera produces 1100bhp and with no transmission?
Why would Koenigsegg produce a vehicle without a transmission? Aside from the efficiency and weight benefits of having no transmission, the Regera can actually spin it’s tires when traveling as fast as 160-170 mph, meaning that any more aggressive gearing would provide no better acceleration for speeds up to about 170 miles per hour. Put simply, it has so much torque that aggressive gearing isn’t needed, and this video has the math to prove it.
The Koenigsegg Regera features a 5.0L V8 producing 1,100 horsepower, and three electric motors producing an additional 700bhp. Combined, the bhp curves allow for a peak of 1,500bhp.
