[update]: New live and official photos added.

According to latest information, the Regera features an innovative direct drive transmission invented by Christian von Koenigsegg that connects the 5.0-liter V8 petrol engine with the electric motors. The model can hit the 100 km/h (62 mph) mark from a standstill in only 2.8 seconds.

First photos of the highly anticipated Koenigsegg Regera have leaked to the web, while the model has also been snapped ahead of its official premiere during the Geneva Motor Show.

Lovecars shared brochure scans of the Regera, which will be the first model of the company to feature the Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD) technology. The Swedish producer insists this is not a hybrid system, despite using a 700 HP (515 kW) electric motors and a 9 kWh battery pack. The 1,420 kg (3,131 lbs) megacar is said to have a combined output of 1,500 HP (1,103 kW), which is enough for a 0 to 400 km/h (0-250 mph) sprint in less than 20 seconds.

The first interior photo of the vehicle shows it features Apple CarPlay, 3G and WiFi and a recording camera.

More details are expected later today and tomorrow during the official premiere of the car, so stay tuned.
