The automaker that always makes its presence at the Geneva Motor Show is Koenigsegg. At this year's Geneva Motor Show, which kicks off on March 7, the Swedish company will show off its first two customer samples of the hybrid hypercar.

The first car is finished in a shade of green reminiscent of the classic British racing green. The car's paint is a tint applied to the clear coat in such a way that it lets the carbon fiber weave of the body panels to remain visible.

On the inside, the car adopts a pretty brown hue that contrasts nicely with the exterior. The second Regera has a combination of black and red for both its interior and exterior.

The automaker plans to build 80 Regeras in total, which would make it the highest volume Koenigsegg version to date. The automaker also said that only a handful of build slots remain. And to handle the extra volume, the automaker is now in the process of upgrading it manufacturing plant.

The Two Regeras is powered by a 5.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine that comes with three electric motors. Combined with the hybrid powertrain, the car then cranks out 1,500 hp.

In addition, due to the electric motors, no transmission is needed. All ultimately allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 186 miles per hour in just 10 seconds.

The company also has developed a system called Direct Drive which connects the car's powerful engine to the wheels through a single-speed reduction gear and hydraulic coupling system. The goal of the company is to build 20-25 cars per year when the process is complete, which will double the current production rate.

Another supercar present on the upcoming event will be an Agera RS. This car has been ordered by American supercar collector Manny Khoshbin and features a clear coat to show the carbon fiber and the 24-carat gold leaf. Khoshbin has ordered the car to have 1,360-hp version of Koenigsegg's twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 introduced in the One:1 hypercar.
