A question being asked by many; why does the new Koenigsegg Regera that features direct drive and therefore no gearbox, still have paddles behind the steering wheel?

I posed the question to the company’s founder, Christian von Koenigsegg and here is the explanation.

Thanks for watching, Tim

and if press Left paddle and Brake then Left paddle, L paddle, Left paddle + Right paddle, Brake, then Hold Left paddle and Right paddle until you hear a confirmation, you will enter a secret menu where you can enable cheat options like time travel mode, and invisible from speed traps mode, no cops mode and flamethrower exhaust mode.

Great question, and a great answer! I'd love to drive one of those things, except that after driving small engined cars for years and developing a heavy foot, I just know it'd end up accidentally reversing through the front window of my house while trying to park it on the slope… 😀
