Koenigsegg Automotive is currently participating at Monterey Car Week 2017, enjoying its biggest ever presence at any event in the United States. Swedish manufacturer of high-performance sports cars will display its latest iteration of the Regera at The Quail – A Motorsport Gathering, on Friday, August 18. A small fleet of Agera RS and earlier models are also scheduled for display at the event.
The Regera on display in Monterey is the first of its model line scheduled for delivery into the United States. It demonstrates new Regera Aero Package, which adds new front and rear winglets and a deeper front spoiler and results in raising the available downforce on the Regera to 385kg, compared to 310kg on a Regera in standard trim. The baseline numbers for the Regera will astonish visitors to The Quail. 3 electric motors. 1 twin-turbocharged V8. 1500 horsepower. 1475 ft lbs of torque. 0-400 km/h (0-248 mph) in just 20 seconds. And all of that from a car with NO transmission. The hybrid powertrain in the Regera will propel it from standstill to 300 km/h in 10 seconds and on to 400km/h (248.5 mph) in just under 20 seconds, yet another world first for a production car.
Agera RSs on display during Monterey Car Week include two vehicles making their world debut at The Quail in 2017. They will be joined by the Agera RS1, which was first shown at the 2017 New York Auto Show. Koenigsegg also has the pleasure of showing one of just three Agera RSR models, an RS variant made exclusively for the Japanese market and delivered in 2016. A number of earlier Koenigseggs – both CCX and CCXR models, including the ultra-rare Koenigsegg Trevita – will be showcased. Two of the CCX’s on display have been fitted with a new package now available to owners of similar cars – the ‘Ghost’ Package.
Following The Quail on Friday 18th, the Koenigsegg Regera and RS fleet will move on to the traditional public gathering along Cannery Row, in downtown Monterey, where it will be joined by an additional fleet of historic Koenigsegg CCX and CCXR models. ‘Exotics at Cannery Row’ is one of the most anticipated events at Monterey Car Week. Unlike other events, the vast majority of which are exclusive and ticketed, Cannery Row is a public event held at no charge, and features the cream of the exotic performance car world.
