So 23.65- 3.295= 20.355 seconds for 60- 250MPH! That's bloody quick, Bugatti numbers are almost hardwired in me LOL!

Remember SHOW it, if you can. X-Y= Z.

Quickest 0-60MPH Koenigsegg EVER?

 

Koenigsegg Regera 0-300km/h test. 60MPH is 96.561km/h. The nearest frame by frame measurements I could get was 95km/h. I'm not too bothered to be honest nothing is published off GPS readings anyway. So a tenth or so is largely neither here or there.

Anyway this work I did WILL pay dividends later if I choose to pursue something else. Time will tell!

But the result is~ 3.295 seconds! I can't recall any quicker ever!😉

Regera receives U.S. EPA certification

Almost five years after its official debut, the Koengisegg Regera has finally recieved certification by the U.S. EPA! During the last week of January, the EPA updated its website data which included the 2019 Regera (yes, I'd been checking weekly. This clears the way for official registrations of the Regera to begin in the United States.

This is notable since it is widely acknowledged that U.S. regulations are notoriously difficult to navigate. In the U.S., small volume manufacturers do not have the benefit of exemptions from the same regulations the major manufacturers do. Add in the Regera's unique, hybrid, single-gear drivetrain which has taken some time to fully develop, and it's no wonder Koenigsegg had a long go at this hurdle. Five years is a long time for any project, but for tiny company with limited resources, it's a big deal, and only underscores the importance of the U.S. market to Koenigsegg.

You can find this certification here: https://www.epa.gov/compliance-and-fuel-economy-data/annual-certification-data-vehicles-engines-and-equipment You will have to select "Light Duty Vehicles and Trucks" and then choose "Certified Vehicle Models..." You'll have to do a bit of sorting to find it, but if you do you'll note that the test vehicle for the certification was #126, the 2016 Geneva show car (pictured below). Another cool thing is the transmission type is listed as "Other" with a further qualification calling out "Koenigsegg Direct Drive" by name.

I'm aware that we're fully into 2020, but this 2019 certification will be easy to renew and apply to successive Model Years now that this one is completed. I'm not aware of any 2020-VIN'ed Regeras yet, and in any case the build and shakedown process takes quite a bit of time, so I expect most of the cars entering the U.S. to be 2019's for some time.

U.S. EPA certification may not mean much to the rest of the world, but what it does tell you is how committed Koenigsegg is to putting out a world-class product. It takes a lot of resources to do what Koengisegg does on their production scale. That they certified a completely new drivetrain design in the U.S. is an acknowledgement of their engineering, and from that everyone benefits.

Congratulations to Koengisegg AB!"

Thank you for this update, Koenigsegg Nerd.
Some of us will miss the Regera.😂
But bring on the Jesko! 👍

Flt 158.

8.5 sec to 150 mph
13.2 sec to 200 mph
10.4 sec @ 168 mph (1/4-mile from dead stop)
9.8 sec @ 172 mph (prepped dragstrip with rollout subtracted)
265 mph (top speed)

Regera production is nearly over, the last few chassis have been delivered to their respective owners. I believe only 2-3 are still testing and need to be delivered

Volkswagen Golf absolutely TRASHES (!) Koenigsegg Regera! LOL! What is this machine? ~ Boba Golf? Possibly.

 

And please no Ktards have a FANNY attack, it is what it is. A Bugatti Chiron would be the same!

Confirmed standing 1/4 1/2 and 1 mile Koenigsegg Regera speeds. Texas Mile!

https://ibb.co/WPcrgcN

1/4= 140.80MPH
1/2= 173.70MPH
1= 214.20MPH

;)

In her first pass apparently she achieved 188MPH for the standing mile. But I haven't seen a time slip yet.

Which just shows away from factory testing times go to pot with weather and non professional driving standards. And I don't gives two FK's if it's "good" or "bad" Bugatti SSC Ferrari or Lamborghini give me, SHOW me proof.

Also someone told me that Koenigsegg as a manufacturer has X amount of Regera's in their own physical ownership in Sweden.

The number, and you know I like them LOL, seemed way too high so it's something else to very verify, but even if it's on the lower end I don't understand why this car has never been independently timed or verified.

Well, above now it has now to a degree. ;)

Edit: in the back of my mind the benchmarking process is begining, but what would a Ferrari SF90 or the Pagani Huyara BC achieve?

As I said elsewhere, too much time around American's.

Well COMPLETELY by coincidence, I assure you of that absolutely. A figure, a very specific figure indeed has emerged for the power output of the Koenigsegg Regera fitted with the below optional extra engine upgrade and it is quote>"1,757 hp."

And that's from people that should know, but for now I'll try to verify that figure there's no need throw unnecessary links about. On THIS occasion.

Koenigsegg>"Environmental Power Upgrade was selected, adding 200 hp when running E85 fuel."

https://www.classicdriver.com/en/car/koenigsegg/regera/2020/812041

The standard specifications car already has flexible fuel capabilities? So?

Plus the price of the "Ghost Package" and "Tresex" carbon fibre wheels. These two were definitely fitted to the 0-400-0km/h car. I believe there's a DISTINCT possibility the above which is the old 1MW engine upgrade was fitted too, but as yet can't prove it, as the power horsepower ratings for the standard specifications are all over the place. Some state 1500hp average some state crazy peak figures.

The figure is more likely above 1600hp. We will eventually find out.

But we or should I say me absolutely, LOL!, knows how much difference 200hp makes to a hypercars performance. Verified.

0-300km/h in DEVELOPMENTAL car and claiming a "record?". For what pre production prototype's? Because, if you are, then your legitimising Bugatti's and Rimac's? Already talked to death about the first and the second newly more recently.

I've already talked about both of them, and the answer is YES verified NO record. Period.

https://www.facebook.com/217092285015368/posts/3879984415392785/

The concerning thing is though there's always more with them.

So now we beging to understand how this flex fuel monster does what it does. With E85 it jumps to nearly 1700hp and 2100NM of torque. Becoming a 1:1 power to weight ratio production car WITH the driver.

The crazy thing is it's probably got even more power as 1500hp is an average. So it's actually plus that figure anyway!

*E85 has an octane rating from 100 to 105 octane rating plus+.

It's my absolute firm belief that the Bugatti Chiron Supersport can match it to 300k/h maybe even 322km/h, but beyond is slightly more difficult to map out.

Using my own calculations based on what happened in the United States of America the Bugatti Chiron Supersport fuelled with COMPLETELY legal 100 octane PUMP premium fuels could actually match the horsepower rating by joining the 1700hp plus+ "crew". Which when you think about it is astonishing.

I know the relative "numbers" for acceleration for both cars, and I did this excercise in a benchmarking opportunity against the Hennessey Venom F5. I went sideways a little, but still we get a clearer picture of what's coming now, for all of them.

https://www.koenigsegg.com/car/regera/

Quote>"1100 Hp of combustion engine power on 91 octane DIN or 95 octane RON (a bit more on E85)."

That's about as useful as a chocolate strawberry fireguard at Christmas? A "bit" isn't particularly scientific and it does not pass scrutiny. So we go backwards in time!

https://www.koenigsegg.com/car/agera-r/

Quote>"The Agera R’s fuel system has enough flow capacity to generate 1140hp and 1200Nm of torque on E85."

Quote>"As 95 octane fuel has less octane than ethanol E85, the power is reduced to 960hp with 1100Nm of torque due to the boost pressure and ignition timing being altered to match the fuel characteristics."

1140hp- 960hp= 180hp gain ~ utilising E85 fuels
1200NM- 1100NM= 100NM gain ~ utilising E85 fuels

The engines are essentially the same anyway between the two.

In actual fact it could be far higher, SSC Tuatara Hennessey F5 Venom and Koenigsegg's own Jesko are proof.

But for the purposes of this segment that's fine as proven above.

Koenigsegg Regera on the Texas Mile! Finally independently verified data! It achieved, well, 216MPH?

 

I'll have to watch it again~ sometime. But my initial impressions are yes there's very obviously a headwind. But is it continuos intensity, prolonged exposure and consistent strength on the front of the car from 0.001- 0.9999 miles? I don't think so.

Anyway the driver is apparently a professional racer so I guess we can rule that out.

I know usually Texas Mile has a ticket with 1/4 1/2 and I believe 3/4 mile timings or speeds on it. They did for Ford GT that 300MPH plus? I want to see it! Who doesn't?

So this highlights whilst factory manufacturer tests and magazine tests are often the quickest where conditions are controlled as much as possible, in the real World things are not quite so controllable.

The factory manufacturer managed circa 249MPH during it's test record slightly over the mile marker, and this managed 216MPH accordingly to Texas Mile?

249- 216= 33MPH difference? Or 14.19% percentage difference between the two!

Statistically significant and figuratively too.

I know it was a relatively soft start but still. Line it up, and get moving get the time+speed and go home!

Koenigsegg Regera 0-300km/h= 12.3 0-400km/h= 19 "around" 300-400km/h this equals= 6.7 second! WTF!

Chris Koenigsegg's own words in the video in this comment.

As per video BELOW this one "pixel" or "frame" measurements 300-400km/h tested= 22.87-12.5= 10.37 seconds

6.7 manufacturer claim to 10.37 manufacturer tests results= 42.999% difference between the two figures.

And there's me giving Bugatti hell, seemingly for nothing now!

 

Anyway, nothing else really to say.

0-100km/h= 3.7
0-200km/h= 7.2
0-300km/h= 12.5

Looks like the measurement were taken with "pixels" as per Sourced and cited and quoted data below.

My own first attempt first draft calculations were actually quicker to 300km/h 10 months ago!

Here is a tiny piece of information for fans of the Koenigsegg cars. I read in Autocar recently that the Regera is still in production. No doubt there are some future owners of this hypercar still awaiting delivery.
