This is another quote made by him at instagram when he was at the factoryHe probably saw renderings or scale model (at best) of the Regera. Koenigsegg usually don't have the Geneva cars ready until few days before the show, other manufacturers sometimes have to push their cars because they aren't even ready to drive! There is no way he have saw (and tested) a real car in the beginning of October! He might as he says have had a ride in the One:1.. Seems he "built something" from very little information ..

I would wait and see what's coming up, but it seems very interesting!
To be fair, if you read closely, he doesn't actually say he drove the Regera, just that "the Koenigsegg [my emphasis added] I find is electrifying". I think he is basing his favor for the Koenigsegg over the others on having driven A Koenigsegg, not THE Koenigsegg, if you follow.

Specs

Anyone know what kind of specs we should expect? Camless engine? Hybrid? V8? All I have heard is a V8 producing around 650hp but I'm not sure the source is that reliable.

Specs?

Anyone know what kind of specs we should expect from the "Regera". Camless engine? hybrid? All I have heard is that supposedly it will be powered by a V8 making around 650hp but thats from a unreliable source.

Source: 20?? Supercars - Page 371 - CarSpyShots
"Koenigsegg will reveal a new model before beginning to produce models with U.S. in mind! My source suggests it will be a entry-level model powered by a V-8 good for about 650 bhp! We will also see the Agera be upgraded to the level of the One:1!"

My guess is that it's the same 5.0L V8 block from the Agera with less power, although I think 650 bhp sounds far too little. Definatly not hybrid, cam-less might be too soon but would be amazing!

I think this might be a very good strategy for Koenigsegg, making the Agera more extreme that appeals more to the traditional K'egg buyer that wants extreme performance, and a less extreme, more GT-oriented car (that's what iv'e heard) that appeals to a larger audience.

I think this is a really good plan for the future, although I hope they will try to keep the One:1 somewhat unique.

I wonder if they are going to make a couple of iteration of the Regera like they did with the Agera. For example having a 'standard' Regera, a Regera S, and a Regera R. Would be interesting if they did but I think the model would be less exclusive and more mainstream than what Koenigsegg should be doing. Also as we've read from the first post of this thread some people have said that they have seen the car, whether it was a scale model, the finished product or just a render or a sketch, it would be wonderful if one of those people could recreate it so we can have our first peak at the car or just describe what it looks like.
PS: I am new to the forum but all of you have made me very comfortable so thank you! It is much appreciated!

Welcome SNB!

It is all speculation at this point of course, there is much we do not know yet. Koenigsegg has done a pretty good job keeping this thing under wraps.

I think we're all very anxiously awaiting Geneva this year!

Thank you @mattjs33!

Yes I think we all are excited to see what's next for Koenigsegg, hopefully it will be a revolutionary design rather than an evolutionary one.

Wonder if they will make a manual or double clutch gearboxes for the Regera

All in all should be a spectacular year for Koenigsegg fans and car enthusiasts.
