Koenigsegg Regera Naked Carbon. OK, maybe the name is hard to pronounce but Swedish manufacturer of high-performance sports cars based in Ängelholm makes the fastest cars in the industry today. Of course, the list of fastest cars is constantly changing as well as our aforementioned statement, but numbers don’t lie. Koenigsegg’s Agera RS officially became the world’s fastest production car in 2017. The record speed achieved was 285 mph (458 km/h). Definitely impressive.
Koenigsegg Regera is a slightly different sports car. It is a plug-in hybrid car, created and designed to be a more practical, luxurious, grand touring alternative to the rest of Koenigsegg’s lightweight hypercar lineup, including the above mentioned Koenigsegg Agera RS and the Koenigsegg One:1. Koenigsegg Regera is therefore less focused on track performance and more focused on the smooth and instant delivery of power provided by its improved powertrain. The company stated that the Regera will be the most powerful and fastest accelerating production car ever.
Koenigsegg Regera Naked Carbon is the first Regera using KNC – Koenigsegg Naked Carbon. This carbon has no lacquer, varnish or alternative coating on top of the carbon cover. The thin layer of epoxy that normally shields a high-end autoclaved cured carbon piece is carefully eliminated by hand polishing, all of which resulted in a striking new look for carbon fiber. The body of the Koenigsegg Regera Naked Carbon became cold to the touch as the material now is pure carbon. The resulting finish is subtle and unique. The company announced that it will only make 80 copies, and they’ve all been sold already.
