Owing a highly sought out Koenigsegg Regera is next to impossible. Many have come up with multiple flavours of Regera and now they have showcased it in naked carbon body. What makes this Regera unique is its body. It doesn’t have any varnish, lacquer or alternative coating and is covered with carbon fiber body. Koenigsegg went to extreme level to ensure it and even removed thin layer of epoxy that is usually present to cover carbon fibers. This is achieved through hand polishing and Koenigsegg claimed that it was a delicate process. It further claimed that too many strokes will ruin weave structure.

Naked carbon finish gives Koenigsegg Regera an unique look because it now has more metallic graphite appearance since each graphite strand is exposed. Swedish based sports automaker even claimed that touching the surface of Regera will feel carbon fiber instead of layers of lacquer or epoxy. The usage of this component may seem delicate to many, it can withstand any conditions. Koenigsegg explained that the car was subjected to extreme test such as summer heat and cold winter. The samples were left outside for several years and it didn’t affect the appearance.
