Koenigsegg Regera gets 1,782bhp and can shoot from 0-248mph in 20 seconds

Koenigsegg unveils two monstrous production-ready hypercars at the 2015 Geneva Show, one with a hybrid powertrain

Not to be outdone by the abundance of other supercars at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg has unveiled a new hypercar and what it calls a 'megacar' that could soon become the fastest car in production. The brand-new, 1,782bhp Koenigsegg Regera is joined by the Koenigsegg Agera RS, a faster and more hardcore version of the already astonishing Agera R.

The bonkers Swedish supercar firm is forever pushing boundaries with its extreme hypercar models. The new Regera (which translates as "to reign") promises a total output of 1,782bhp and a frankly astounding 2,000Nm of torque.

That would make it the world's most powerful production car by some distance. It achieves those huge numbers through a combination of the firm's dry-sump, twin-turbo 5.0-litre V8, which has been tuned to pump out 1,085bhp at 7000rpm on its own.

The remainder of that power and torque (697bhp and  is produced by three electric motors and the most power dense 9.27kWh battery pack ever created for a road-going car. Two of the motors are positioned on each rear wheel, while one on the crankshaft provides 'torque fill'.

Koenigsegg claims the Regera will be the fastest accelerating car ever made. 248mph is apparently achieved in just 20 seconds, thrashing any hypercar around by a significant margin. Despite this, the Regara promises an an all-electric range of 35 miles. Just 80 hand-crafted examples will be available to order.

Koenigsegg: Agera RS revealed

Alongside the headline-grabbing Regera, the firm is also debuting a more hardcore Agera RS. Optimised to produce a still rather incredible 1,144bhp from the 5.0-litre V8, it makes a hugely potent 228bhp-per-litre. The RPM limit has also been raised over the standard car.

The Agera RS is also available with more modern interior tech including 3G connectivity, and only 25 examples will be built. Track optimised aerodynamic features are also added, with a new front splitter, a dynamic active rear spoiler and active underbody flaps.
