Like many others, seems that Christian von Koenigsegg, the founder of the Swedish high-performance automobile manufacturer Koenigsegg Automotive AB, was a big fan of Prince, rock legend who passed away last Thursday. On the same evening, Koenigsegg posted on its Facebook page a purple-wrapped CCXR, with the caption “Purple – in memory of Prince. RIP Kid. Gone away too soon.”
As the public reception to the post was ecstatic, Koenigsegg engineers created a computer-generated rendering of the 1,500 horsepower, $1.9 million hybrid-electric Regera in purple-tinted carbon fiber and called it Koenigsegg Lila Regera (Purple Reign).
Purple Regera is certainly more than exclusive and glamorous, just like it was Prince, and a waiting list is pretty long – two years, so it will take some time before we see it on the asphalt.
