Here's a Squadron of Koenigseggs Enjoying the Track for a Family Shoot

Although highly unusual – on account of all the stuff that has been going on around the world – 2020 has been a good year for the Ängelholm, Sweden-based exotic manufacturer. Koenigsegg followed the 2019 Geneva Motor Show arrival of the Jesko with its Jesko Absolut sibling and the Gemera. Now, all the models currently in production have gathered round for a year-end farewell to remember.

All the action takes place on the track, a natural fit for all four models, and the Regera is also making a spectacular appearance. We have already seen that automakers clearly want to jump into 2021 with renewed forces and probably just forget about all the troubles they faced in 2020.

As such, we have seen some trying to bring about the goodwill of Santa by gifting him with a new ride. Others decided to go for the Bad Santa trope – Texas and supercharged style. Certain brands even went down the minimalist route and shrunk their cars to origami-style paper scale models.

Koenigsegg, instead, isn’t doing any of that. They haven’t mentioned Santa, nor did they give any holiday cheers. The Swedes went for a classic approach. A family photo usually speaks a thousand words – and given that a Regera, a Gemera, a Jesko, and a Jesko Absolut are involved, this one speaks thousands of horsepower.

The company probably felt that with all the attention awarded to the highlights of the year – the Gemera and the Jesko Absolut – its other production car, the Regera, was somehow neglected. So, on this occasion, it’s actually taking center stage for an individual representation.

And what better way to celebrate its hybrid powertrain that’s capable of churning out more than 1,500 horsepower than with a few iconic tricks, such as a donut or a burnout. Great to see the Regera enveloped in a cloud of smoke and with lots of tire marks around it, but we do have just one question: can we please have the Gemera and Jesko do the exact same thing? Perhaps in tandem?
