Koenigsegg Regera Drives Thru In-N-Out Burger

Hitting the Drive-Thru in Style

Recently, a spike in hitting the drive-thru in style is occurring worldwide. Firstly, there was the McLaren P1 GTR at McDonald’s. Now, there is the Koenigsegg Regera at In-N-Out Burger. YouTube channel Whitesse JR has a video displaying this unique event including the time beforehand. To make this even crazier, Christian Von Koenigsegg is at the wheel himself!
The Regera is a limited production plug-in hybrid sports car. The initial unveil was at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. As per a fun fact, Regera means “to reign” or “to rule” in Swedish. With over 1,500 horsepower, this car does rule the road. Now, let’s dive a bit deeper into the Regera!

The Beastly Regera Sports Car

Discussing horsepower, the Koenigsegg Regera is a beast. With over 1,500 horsepower, this car boasts around 700 electrical horsepower and 664 lb.-ft. of torque. The rest is from its powerhouse twin-turbo V8 engine. The electrical power is possible thanks to the support of a 4.5-kWh 800-V flooded liquid cooled battery. Obviously, this sports car is no joke. Furthermore, the 2018 Regera has an estimated MSRP of $2,000,000. Wow! Imagine driving a vehicle worth as much as a 5,000 plus square foot house with enhancements. Furthermore, in the In-N-Out drive-thru. Overall, the Regera is truly a stunning collector’s vehicle.

The only way this would be more ridiculous is if it was the Naked Carbon Regera.

“Two Milkshakes!” – Mr. Koenigsegg

Well, the main fact of the story is that a Koenigsegg Regera driven by Mr. Koenigsegg himself drove-thru In-N-Out. But, it’s time for the most important part of the story. What did Christian Von Koenigsegg order? Well… unfortunately, just two milkshakes. What!? How did he not step it up and grub down on a 4×4, aka Quad Quad, from the Not-So-Secret menu? Or, even just a Double-Double? Either way, the Regera is an amazing sports car. Hence, it is an honor to witness one absolutely anywhere.

Recently, Koenigsegg delivered the first Regera to a customer in ‘naked’ carbon fiber. Yes, instead of paint, or even coated carbon, this car has straight-up carbon. Koenigsegg Naked Carbon, or KNC, has no coating, lacquer, or varnish. Furthermore, the thin layer of epoxy is removed via polishing by hand. If whomever strokes slightly more than necessary, the weave structure could be ruined… phew! That’s a ton of pressure on the people, or person, who handle this task. With Regera meaning “to reign” or “to rule” in Swedish, this person definitely reigns the carbon world. Not surprisingly, the raw carbon style looks absolutely stunning!

The Koenigsegg Naked Carbon Regera is quite a phenomenal vehicle on the outside. But, let’s also take a look “under the hood”. The Regera sports a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. Furthermore, there are (3) total electrical motors. These include (2) YASA 750 R motors and (1) YASA P400 motor. Together, the engine and electric motors produce 1,500 horsepower! Furthermore, all of this power works in combo with a Koenigsegg Direct Drive transmission, a 1-speed fixed gear setup. So, there is no “granny shiftin’, not double clutchin’ like you should” (Dom in The Fast and the Furious) in this car. Finally, this car has a 4.5 kW-h liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery. This battery can run solo for up to 22 miles. Do note, this battery is more so for the electric motors than actual driving distance.

The Koenigsegg Naked Carbon Regera is a winner. This car is absolutely striking on the exterior with a powerhouse system inside. With 1,500 horsepower, this car competes with the crème of the crop. To handle this power, the car has (3) traction control settings: Normal, Track, & Wet. Obviously, each of these have a purpose. Let’s make sure not to forget the Koenigsegg Agera RS or the “Ragnarok“. Overall, the Koenigsegg Regera in KNC is another amazing delivery by the Swedish company.
