Eumh, that's actually the flux capacitor! That's how they finish before Geneva .. Now they need to visit Ringhals to get the 1.21 gigawatts (no lightnings in Sweden this time of year and Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor was not really realized in 2015) and travel in 88 mph (that's with good margin what a Regera makes stand still). Christian found out flux dispersal is not exclusive for a stainless steel body, carbon fiber is just as influential. Another good thing, the Regera will not malfunction from running on whiskey..Here's the battery cooling system to #126 btw. They are working fast, as it was not mounted when the photo J_C posted was taken. Also, I think you can see here (to the left of the battery cooling system) that the Akrapovic exhaust has a different coating than on #114, basically black.
I think it looks at least as dark as the car in the background!?Any guesses on the paint? Looks grey/silverisch but hard to tell..
Supposedly it uses "F1 tech". I assume that's super capacitors of some kind. In general those have higher specific power but lower specific energy than lithium batteries.Great to finally see a production spec Regera! I suppose this particular car is destined to become a future press/PR/development vehicle?
It's interesting to see that they have slashed the battery capacity from the planned 9+ kWh to 4.5 kWh. I wonder if this is due to packaging contraints, or if the improved battery tech allowed them to extract the desired power from a smaller pack. In any case it's more than either the P1 or 918, and in the video clip below CvK claims the pack won't be immediately drained during track use.
From Take a look at the crazy Koenigsegg Regera (pictures) - Page 9 - RoadshowI've asked Prash to take some close up photos of the rear, including the third break light. I was curious about it too!
