SKF powering the wheels of Koenigseggs new Regera
2015 April 09, 14:00 CEST
Gothenburg, 09 April, 2015: SKF is supplying Koenigseggs with front and rear wheel hub bearing units equipping their new car model Regera, launched at the Geneva Autoshow early March.
Jean-Sylvain Migliore, Manager Racing, Automotive Market says, “Our development of components to fit the needs of motorsport and performance cars is really pushing SKF to the extremes. Designing the bearings to fit the ultimate driving experience with mega performance providing high customer satisfaction is a pure pleasure. We take great pride in our work and we are happy to be contributing to Koenigseggs power and responsiveness.”
The Regera offers a combination of power, responsiveness and luxury. In spite of all its advanced technology and high comfort level, the Regera is comparatively light. This allows it to still perform competitively around a race circuit. However, on the highway, the Regera will reign as “King of the road”, as the fastest accelerating, most powerful production car ever, according to Koenigsegg.
The Regera will be handcrafted in only 80 examples.
SKF has been a partner to Koenigsegg since its beginning, and also supplies the Agera RS and ONE:1 with wheel bearings.
