Offered with just 369 miles driven by the original owner, this 2020 Regera sports non-metallic Battle Grey over a Desiato Black interior extensively accented with bare carbon fiber. An exclusive Ghost Package—named for the eerie apparition featured on all of Koenigsegg’s cars—offers revised aerodynamics that add 20 percent more downforce, while exterior carbon fiber air intakes, a roof pane, hood, Speedster Sides, and inner rockers further distinguish an already-standout ride. Rounding out the all-out specs are Koenigsegg’s own Tresex Aircore carbon fiber wheels, which reduce unsprung weight and improve aerodynamics.

The Regera’s pioneering propulsion system combines a twin-turbo V8 with three electric motors via Koenigsegg Direct Drive—a power-delivery system that completely replaces the car’s transmission by placing an electric motor on the 1,100-horsepower engine’s crankshaft and drives the differential directly through a fluid coupler. An 800-volt electric battery brings total output up to 1,500 horsepower even when running on E85 gas, thanks to an Environmental Power Upgrade.

“This is a remarkable consignment and one of the first Regeras ever to be sold at public auction,” states Gooding & Company president and founder David Gooding. “Along with this incredibly desirable Koenigsegg, our Geared Online Scottsdale Edition sale has a diverse selection of collector cars that will appeal to many enthusiasts.”

With a $2.75-$3.5 million pre-sale estimate, this 2020 Koenigsegg Regera usurps a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Long Nose as the crown jewel of Gooding & Co.’s Scottsdale event. Click here to register to bid before the event kicks off on January 18.
