Hybrid swede supercar is a burnout king

The Koenigsegg Regera sure does one mean burnout.

Then again, it would, because its specification is basically tailor-made for turning rubber into smoke for as long as possible. Firstly, there’s the 1120kW/2000Nm+ hybrid drivetrain, which can use electric torque to turn the tyres from standstill until the twin-turbo 5.0-litre V8 takes over.
