Koenigsegg to display two Regeras, Agera RS Gryphon at 2017 Geneva Show

Article by Christian A., on March 3, 2017

On its own, the Koenigsegg Regera is already a masterpiece. One major reason is found under the hood -- the twin-turbo V8 engine capable of 1,500 hp (1,118 kW).

With its three electric motors, the Regera is guaranteed to offer the highest possible output for a production hybrid model.

Koenigsegg is upping the ante by offering two production versions of the Regera during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Koenigsegg Agera RS Gryphon

It appears that it is still not enough as in addition to the two versions of the Regeras, Koenigsegg will also be displaying the bespoke Agera RS Gryphon. Finished in clear carbon fiber, the striping badging even has the 24-carat gold leaf.

The same was done to the hood struts as well. As part of the package, a customized racing helmet is included and also has the same gold leaf finish.

All of the finishes were done by Ettore 'Blaster' Callegaro, a master craftsman based in Italy. Powering it is the biturbo V8 engine that can offer 1,360 hp (1,014 kW) with the entire car weighing 3,085 lbs. (1,395 kg).

Koenigsegg Regera Candy Apple Red

The first version will have its exterior come in candy apple red color. It will have a centerpiece made of carbon fiber and in order to complement the body’s color, have a red hood stripe.

Looking at the air intakes on the side, they have been finished using exposed carbon. For those who want to have a cool overall look for this version, Koenigsegg is making available carbon fiber wheels as an option. Meanwhile the interior reveals the use of black leather highlighted by Lingonberry.

Koenigsegg Regera British Racing Green

The second Regera will have an exterior finish in green which itself is a tribute to the classic British Racing Green. Furthermore, the exterior is light enough so that carbon fiber can be weaved on the body panels to make them shine. Like the first version, Koenigsegg is offering an optional set of wheels. This time, it is the carbon-fiber hollow-core “Tressex” wheels.

Compared to the usual alloy wheels, these are lighter by 40%. Those who want to get them will have them fitted with the Pilot Sport 4S tires from Michelin. On the inside, the cabin has a Saddle Brown leather finish. Then there is the combination of flat leather and basket weave which is not only used for the seats but can be seen all the way to the dashboard and even to the door panels.

While the two versions do have differences, there will be some features that both will exhibit. These include the Apple CarPlay and two USB ports that can be used for charging.

Both will also offer the electronic six-way adjustable seats. Some systems are the same as well, like the parking assistance system known as Bird’s Eye View. Having said that, the two versions will also have the Autoskin system. What this particular system does is to allow the driver to open any of its doors, or even the hood, by merely pressing a button.
