In recent years, car brands have increasingly focused on developing hypercar models to be able to compete in accordance with the trend as well as to meet the growing needs of car players around. world. The hypercar is the convergence of what’s really the essence of the brand with the aim of bringing the best to the owner.
Perhaps, “standing” at the top of the table of hypercar models are two unfamiliar names: Bugatti Chiron and Koenigsegg Regera. These two models are known for their tremendous engine power and outstanding performance, ready to conquer the milestones. It can be said that the speed war between these two models is always a “problem” that makes manufacturers have a headache. In addition, put these two models side by side to see a more comprehensive view of the outstanding points of these two models.
Both models – Chiron and Regera carry the traditional network design lines inherited from their predecessors, but are refreshed towards the trend of modern hypercar.
As for the Koenigseggs, most of them have a design that is significantly different from the other car brands with an elongated panoramic glass, doors that open to the front as on all cars. models under this brand. At the same time, with a height of only about 1.1m and a length of up to 4.56m, Regera is designed with the goal of maximizing aerodynamics, increasing operating efficiency so it is very low as well as lengthened with Soft contours. For the Chiron, the car is about 10cm taller, the wheelbase is longer than the Regera but has a somewhat less slender design than the competition. This is also the distinctive feature of the models from these two brands.
Each design has a different advantage, but they are an interesting choice for car enthusiasts when they can choose between a car with a slightly innovative design with a different opening. , or a vehicle with a “safe” design with features somewhat more familiar than traditional cars.
If supercars are often mentioned with a sporty, aggressive interior with details such as racing seats and Alcantara interior, hypercars seem to be less concerned with those details. In contrast, the interior compartment of the Chiron or Regera is designed with a style of luxury but does not lose the sportiness of the two models.
However, the interior of the Chiron is also minimalistic with the necessary function buttons with the slim center console, integrated with the arch separating the two seats in the interior of the car. Function keys, dashboard have been fully integrated in front of the driver, to help them adjust functions quickly while operating the vehicle.
Regera’s interior compartment possesses modern and modern technologies such as a large function screen in the center console area with integrated many functions, in line with the minimalist trend on many models. current vehicle. Compared to the Chiron’s interior cabin, the Regera’s cockpit is still somewhat sportier with a seamlessly designed steering glass, providing a wider viewing angle for occupants.
Furthermore, Regera has a hard hood that can be easily removed, meeting the different needs of owners. This is also the point that Chiron does not have, but Chiron lovers can still choose the option of a glass sunroof to make the interior of the car more luxurious, “brighter” than the photo. natural light.
Engine & operation:
Perhaps talking about the hypercar, this is the most mentioned factor, it can be said that this is the core factor behind the achievements, the speed records of the cars.
On this model, Koenigsegg is equipped with a hybrid drive system with a turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 engine, producing a maximum capacity of 1,100 horsepower, combined with three electric motors for a total capacity of up to 1,500 horsepower. Koenigsegg developed the Regera Direct Drive (KDD) gearbox with a single gear, connecting the crankshaft and the drivetrain. At speeds below 48 km / h, the electric motor will support the internal combustion engine to help the car move smoother. The car is also equipped with a gearshift pad, but this pad is only a simulation for a 7-speed automatic transmission. Koenigsegg Regera is capable of accelerating to 100 km / h in less than 3 seconds and a top speed can reach 420 km / h.
Bugatti Chiron is equipped with “terrible” W16 engine block, 8 liter capacity with four turbochargers, producing a maximum capacity of up to 1,500 horsepower and maximum torque of 1,600 Nm. Chiron can accelerate to 100 km / h from the starting position in 2.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 420 km / h. Bugatti also provides two keys with a “Top Speed” key to activate maximum speed like on Veyron.
According to some information, fuel consumption of the Bugatti Chiron is at 22.5 liters / 100km while for the Regera is 15.1 liters / 100km. This can be easily explained by the Regera is a car equipped with an electric motor combination engine, making this car somewhat “friendly” to the environment than the Chiron.
Although they are the top two hypercar models with an unbelievable price, the two models still have a significant price difference (in terms of base price).
For Regera, the listed price once announced would be at $ 1.9 million. However, with the wide choice of colors to look at or the Ghost Package upgrade, the price can add up.
For the Chiron, the starting price for this model will be about $ 2.4 million, which is about $ 500,000 difference from the Regera. However, as a longtime car company with many cult models and high production costs, perhaps the price of the Chiron is more expensive is understandable.
With only 80 built, the Regera is a harder car to own than the Chiron (with 500 built).
However, both models are “dream” hypercars of anyone who is passionate about speed. Each car has a different beauty, a different style, but the most common thing about them is that they all bring absolute satisfaction to the owners and drivers of the car.
