The Koenigsegg Regera Was Built For Sleeping

Yes, the image we have here is as real as they get. And yes, it does highlight the GT nature of the Regera - this might pack 1,500 ponies, but it is labeled as the Grand Tourer of the Koenigsegg range, sitting along side the 300 mph-capable Jesko, which, by the way, is currently embarked in a journey across the world.

"Who would go to sleep inside a Koenigsegg?" I hear you asking. Well, the first suspect is always the owner and, in this case, that guess is spot on.

The one occupying the frunk is Carina Lima, a Portuguese aficionado who took delivery of this stunning Blue Regera earlier this season.

As always with a bed, the coziness is not the only aspect that matters, as access is also important. And with this Egg, getting in and out of bed couldn't be easier.

The vehicle's Autoskin system, which involves hydraulic actuation for all the movable panels, can be activated from the key fob, while you jump in your pijamas.

Besides, how many beds that have set production 0-400-0 km/h world records? As the velocity addicted among you are well aware, Angelholm keeps placing new accolades of the sort in its cabinet, while Bugatti, with its Chiron Super Sport 300+, claims it is not interested in such feats anymore.

Now, you should know that there's a method to the title above. For one thing, Carina, who is also a racing driver, attempted to drift the thing, with this leading to an odd experience since we're talking about a transmissionless experience - the twin-turbo V8 occupying the middle section of the hypercar doesn't sent its power directly to the rear wheels, feeding a pair of electric motors that are connected to the said wheels instead.

Nevertheless, if you're crazy about slip angles, you should know the Koenigsegg One:1 was built for drifting, as Carina demonstrated in a wet parking lot.
