Koenigsegg Turbocharged 5.0 liter V8
We have recently seen a trend involving the proliferation of gears in manual and automatic transmissions: Where four or five were once the norm, seven or eight (or even nine or ten) are now common. Swedish hypercar manufacturer Koenigsegg reverses that trend. Its new Regera hybrid makes so much power at low speeds with its three electric motors, and so much at higher speeds with its twin-turbocharged 5.0 liter V8, that it needs only one ratio. This saves weight and reduces the loss of power associated with routing output through a transmission. One speed equals more speed.
