Koenigsegg Regera Carbon Chassis Surfaces, Looks Like Stripped-Down Track Car

Every now and then, Koenigsegg pauses whatever it's doing for a moment and takes the time to share one of the many unusual activities it engages in with the world. This is how Angelholm strengthens its brand image. And the process has just been repeated, which is why we have the pleasure of bringing you this tech-immersive photo.

In fact, the Angelholm people are pretty good at the PR job, too: "No, we're not doing a completely stripped Koenigsegg track car. This is a Regera in skeletal form, showing why the car is both so light and so strong in the one photo,"

Now, before you start asking questions about the surprisingly skinny rear tires (they have to channel the hybrid's 1,500 hp, remember?), you shouldn't know there's a reasonable explanation for this. And while zooming in on the profile of the tires should be enough of a clue, the K people anticipated the internet's lack of focus and kindly provided one extra detail: " Winter tyres are fitted simply so we can roll the chassis where we need it,"

And, to help you get an idea on how the gas-electric powertrain components fill out the skeleton seen here, we've added a pair of technical images to your right. Also provided by the Swedish automaker, these dissect the innovative powertrain of the Regera, with its transmissionless nature - here's a detailed explanation on the hardware, in case you missed it.

On a more practical level, check out the piece of footage below to see what happens when all these bits and bobs work together to deliver a monster burnout.

P.S.: We can help but think of the 2016 Nurburgring testing season's ending when seeing that winter rubber - will Koenigsegg manage to complete the rebuild of the wrecked One:1 and return to the Ring in time for another lap record attempt? Here's to hoping the answer is positive, since Pagani is already on the Nordschleife, dropping spicy laps in the Huayra BC.
