Following its unveiling at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Regera entered production the same month in March 2016. It's sold by Koenigsegg as the luxurious megacar alternative to their race-like road cars, especially since it is the first car to be produced by the company alongside another at the same time; the Agera RS.
The rear wheels of the Regera are powered by a combination of a 5.0L twin-turbocharged V8 producing 1,800 bhp, a 215 bhp electric motor-generator on the crankshaft, and two rear wheel-shaft mounted electric motors, each producing 241 bhp. All of which is managed by a single gear transmission developed by Koenisegg, and referred to as the Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD).

Marcus "The Gambler" Weir's
Marcus "The Gambler" Weir's Regera is stolen by Lina Navarro as part of her double cross against Tyler Morgan during the mission "The Job" in chapter 0 - Prologue, and is delivered to "The Collector" of the House.
During its time under possession of the House, it is fitted with a tamper-proof ECU that was custom-built for the Regera. The unique part was discovered by Rav between getting the car from Jess following the mission "The Highway Heist" in chapter 2 - Desert Winds and it being returned to "The Gambler".
Need for Speed: Heat
The Regera appears in Need for Speed: Heat following an article, revealing it to be part of the game's official car list, was published on August 19, 2019, and appears in the NFS: Heat Studio app as part of container 6, which was released on September 24, 2019.
The stock Regera can be unlocked in Need for Speed: Heat.
Races with few corners are best suited to the Regera as it has a tendency to understeer in corners. However, it has a higher top speed than any other car, and comes with quick acceleration that gives it an edge on most cars when exiting corners.
