    Harumpf. "A 9kW battery pack". Come on, Top Gear, you can do better than that. And a 9kWh battery pack means this is using the electric motor for nothing more than filling the turbo hole... 2.7s 0-62 isn't all that insane, but 93-155 in 3.2s sure is...
    All that at $1.9M

    Interesting car. No transmission. Single speed. Electric only to 30mph, then the V8 takes over.

    Well, it would qualify for "insane" by Tesla standards ( < 3.2s)
    Anyways, Koenigsegg said they couldn't do better because of traction limits.
    I guess they would need to go AWD if they wanted to be quicker to 60mph.

    At 10:33 Christian reveals that Rimac had a hand in creating that monster.

    In the above video I didn't hear any mention of Rimac?

    I'm sorry. I had a few windows open. I was watching this video:


    He also mentions the company that makes the direct drive motors, but I can't quite catch it.

    It's also mentioned on this page:
    Regera - Koenigsegg | Koenigsegg

    Keep in mind that they're doing it with RWD platform. Most other cars have to rely on AWD to even think about getting close to that mark. That in itself is pretty insane :)

    I'm curious to see what it does 60-130mph, which is seems to be the popular metric among the high HP crowd nowadays. There are Nissan GTRs and turbo Gallardos that are doing 60-130mph in the 2.3 second range now, accelerating harder from a 60 punch than other cars do from a dead stop. I've heard that the only way to describe it is, "teleportation" :-o

    He doesn't only drive it. HE LOVES IT and advocates for TESLA and Elon like us fanboys/girls in here! I've heard he ordered a P85D, maybe I can go to Ängelholm and see it. My gf's cousin works with the interior in the cars. So hopefully i get a peak into the factory and meet the big man. Christian want and thinks everything "daily driver" like cars will go electric and just the mega/supercars and the classics will still be powered by gas.

    There was definitely pressure from the other big boys in town like Laferrari and M P1 for going hybrid. However it was his Tesla that truly converted him using electric in his cars, as he was anti electric several years ago.
    He was asked why did he buy a Tesla you know because it's electric? His answer because it's the best everyday car and it just happens to be an electric car.
    Considering that he has ordered the P85d look forward to 4wd with outside wheel torque distribution like the electric SLS and a cam shaft less engine in future models. Talking about outside wheel torque distribution I would love Tesla to use that in top of the range models in the future.

    Just a quick correction:

    It has 3 electric motors with a total of 700 Hp (torque: 900 Nm) and an internal combustion engine with 1100 Hp (torque: 1250 Nm) power output. (The ICE has bit more power on E85.) Now, it seems the total power is 1800 Hp (as the title says) but the power peaks are spread out and they don't top on each other so the total combined power is ""only"" 1508 Hp (torque: 2000 Nm).
