The latest creation from Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg looks like a mod cruiser from the 1960s, yet hides a very powerful plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
GENEVA -- Koenigsegg, a Swedish automaker, brought the Regera to the 2015 Geneva auto show.
Regera is a two seater with a removable hard top.
Lightweight materials, such as carbon fiber and Kevlar, make up the body.
Unlike Koenigsegg's other models, which look like race cars, the Regera looks more like a cruiser.
Underneath the skin is a gasoline-electric hybrid drivetrain producing 1,500 horsepower.
The Regera boasts a twin turbo V-8 engine producing 1,100 horsepower, and three electric motors.
The roof pieces can be added for all-weather use.
Lightweight materials for the roof mean the weight distribution is only lightly affected with it on.
An adaptive suspension adjusts for handling and ride quality.
Thin supports for the side mirrors improve aerodynamics.
Koenigsegg Aircore carbon fiber wheels help lighten the load.
The Regera uses 19-inch wheels in front, and 20-inch wheels at the rear.
Humps behind the seats promote aerodynamic performance and give the Regera 1960s style.
A rear wing deploys at speed to add downforce to the rear wheels.
A plug-in port at the rear lets owners charge up the car's 9 kilowatt-hour battery pack.
Koenigsegg plans on a production run of 80 cars.
The windshield curves around the cabin in dramatic fashion.
Drivers can choose between wet, normal and track modes.
An infotainment center in the cabin supports Apple CarPlay.
The Regera will be a rare car to see on the street, but a treat for its lucky owners to drive.
