The Jesko / Jesko Absolut and the four-seat Gemera grand tourer are the latest models from Koenigsegg, but we mustn’t forget the older Regera is still around. Even though it was originally unveiled nearly seven years ago, the electrified “Megacar” as labeled by the Swedish brand still raises our heartbeats whenever we see it. That’s particularly true when it has a few special options as it’s the case with this example.
While the total production run is limited to 80 cars, this one is a bit rarer since it has a bare carbon fiber body with matching wheels made from the same lightweight material. There’s even carbon fiber in the headlight housing, while the side of the car is adorned by a yellow stripe made from real gold.
With a 0 to 249 mph (400 km/h) run in under 20 seconds, it’s one of the quickest production cars ever. Back in October 2019, it needed only 31.49 seconds to reach that velocity and then come to a full stop, courtesy of its large carbon-ceramic brakes.
Surface Transforms plc (LON:SCE) are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use. Koenigsegg nominated SCE as a tier one sole supplier on their Gemera car.
