$4.1M Used Hypercar Showdown: Koenigsegg Regera, Lamborghini Sian, or Bugatti Chiron?
Several million dollars would be more than enough to quench our exotic car thirst for the rest of our lives. This writer would probably top it off with a nice home, and spend the rest of his days in the garage, admiring some of the finest vehicles ever made, whenever he’s not driving them.

$4.1M Used Hypercar Showdown: Koenigsegg Regera, Lamborghini Sian, or Bugatti Chiron?

So, what is your favorite high-end supercar? Don’t go daydreaming on us, because you can do that in the ‘Ultimate Three-Car Garage’ story from a couple of months ago, in case you missed it. In this article, we will put the light on three models: the Koenigsegg Regera, Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, and Bugatti Chiron Sport.

But why these three? Because each one is listed on the used car market for exactly €3,558,100 at the time of writing, which equals to $4,141,800 at the current exchange rates. All of them are currently listed for grabs in Europe by the same used car dealer, and we’ll try to decide which one deserves your hard-earned cash.

Advertised on Mobile, the Koenigsegg Regera in question came out in 2019, and back then, it set its first owner back around $2 million. You are looking at a full-blown hypercar that has the Bugatti Chiron in its sights, yet unlike the Molsheim model, it uses some electrified trickery to assist the twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8.

The internal combustion engine is backed up by no less than three electric motors, and when all of them work together, they produce over 1,500 horsepower and 1,475 lb-ft (2,000 Nm) of torque. From naught to 62 mph (0-100 kph), the Swedish beast needs 2.7 seconds, and it can 255 mph (410 kph) before running out of breath.

Also in stock, according to the Mobile ad, the Bugatti Chiron Sport is a lighter and more dynamic version of the normal Chiron, which came out more than three years ago at the Geneva Motor Show. Back then, it was accompanied by a starting price that equaled to around $3.3 million, boasting extra carbon fiber, stiffer suspension, modified steering, optimized rear axle differential, dynamic torque vectoring, and a few other goodies.

In terms of straight-line performance, it dwarfs the Koenigsegg Regera, on paper anyway. Bugatti claims that from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 kph), the Chiron Sport can accelerate in just 2.4 seconds. Keep the throttle pinned to the floor and the speedometer will eventually indicate 261 mph (420 kph). Power, on the other hand, is supplied by the 1,479 hp and 1,180 lb-ft (1,600 Nm) quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine.

Named after the late Ferdinand Karl Piech and his year of birth, the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 is one of the multitude of models based on the Aventador. Nonetheless, unlike the flagship supercar, which uses a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine in different configurations, the Sian FKP 37 is also assisted by electricity.

The total output of 808 hp enables a 0 to 62 mph (0-100 kph) sprint in 2.8 seconds, and a 217 mph (350 kph) top speed. This makes it the least powerful and agile of the three, but then again, it is the only one to feature a big engine without any turbocharging.

Now, if money was the least of your concerns, which of the three would you go for and why? We’d be tempted to say the Koenigsegg Regera, for the simple fact that it provides extreme thrills behind the wheel. We’d probably say no to the Sian FKP 37 because if we’re talking about ultra-high-end machines, we might as well go for the fastest. And since we’re at it, we’d probably go for the Bugatti, because you simply cannot beat the badge.
