Baring the naked truth: Koenigsegg employee configures a Regera in bare carbon fiber finish

Article by Christian A., on March 1, 2017

A nude show can’t get any better than this. As we wait for Koenigsegg to launch the company’s official configurator online, several of its employees have already given us a taste of what’s to come. The latest naked carbon design is made by none other than Koenigsegg’s Facility manager with the first name Chrille.

Instead of using different contrasting color tints on his Regera (as what most clients love about Koenigsegg in the first place), Chrille has gone back to basics. By leaving the natural shade of the carbon fiber “as is”, the Regera turns out to be the most menacing one among all the other Koenigseggs modified by his colleagues in the last several months.

The bare carbon theme doesn’t stop at the exterior. Inside, most of the Regera’s cabin is made with the same carbon fiber composition which includes the center console, the steering wheel, the door panels and the A-pillars. To complete the basic look, Chrille’s naked Regera is fitted with carbon Tresex wheels and brake calipers in anthracite finish. As for the dashboard, Chrille has used an all-black Alcantara fiber to get rid of any reflections while the upholstery on the seats come in carbon/black with snow white inserts for a two tone effect.

Here's little more info about the man behind this naked Regera. Chrille has been working with Koenigsegg for several years already. He takes pride in his work and even got a ghost logo tattoo above his ankle to prove his devotion to the company. So it’s plain to see why he went for a completely different approach when he finally had the chance to configure the 1,500hp hybrid hypercar.

According to Koenigsegg, Chrille has worked in various areas of the company that they couldn’t remember when or where it all started. His job as the company’s Facility Manager entails him to work in the service area, the finishing station just to name a few. In other words, he’s one of those Koenigsegg employees who basically represent the “soul of the company”.

By all means, we can see Chrille’s passion right through this naked wonder. There are many more to come as Koenigsegg’s “in-house designers” continue to give us a glimpse of their ideas using the company’s official configurator system. We wonder what Christian Von Koenigsegg, (the company founder) has to show when he takes his turn. Or better yet, let’s wait and see what Koenigsegg clients and fans have in mind as soon as the online configurator becomes available.
