Christian Von Koenigsegg is one of the most creative and most inventive automaker chiefs that the world has ever seen. The previous year he came up with a brilliant idea for his one-of-a-kind hybrid supercar. Though, he refuses to call it a hybrid, it certainly is a unique piece of art that’s quite different from the others we’re used to seeing. The main difference being no gearbox whatsoever. So, how does his 1500 HP Regera work without a gearbox?
Well, welcome to nerd’s paradise. On this episode, Christian Von Koenigsegg explains the so-called Direct Drive, a gas-electric hybrid system. His invention surely makes traditional gearing obsolete while making us wonder how he managed to do it.
