Video: Look At The Koenigsegg Regera With A Completely Bare Carbon Body

The entire run of the Swedish hypercar Koenigsegg Reger has long been sold out on pre-orders, but not all copies have been built and sent to customers. And with each car assembled, the Swedes find new reasons to remind that the Reger is one of the coolest hypercars in the world.
For example, another Reger instance named Koenigsegg Naked Carbon sports a body made entirely of unpainted carbon fiber. Yes, yes, in this case we are talking about completely nude CFRP, without any cover. Each autoclaved body element is polished by hand until the texture of the carbon threads is revealed. This process required special care: one wrong movement could damage the weaving, and the whole part would have to be redone.
And no varnish and no epoxy. The company says that the surface of such body panels heats up less than that of lacquered counterparts, and supposedly you should not be afraid of chips and other minor damage: carbon fiber is very durable and resists minor scratches better than paintwork.
Of course, the refusal to paint also affected the weight of the car: Koenigsegg Naked Carbon turned out by 20 kilograms lighter than the colored version.
