Introducing ‘Autoskin’ Robotics For The New Koenigsegg Regera

  • Robotic mechanism opens and closes all doors on the Koenigsegg Regera by remote control
  • Practical, hands-free access to all areas of the vehicle
  • System adds less than 5 kilograms to the weight of the Regera
  • Includes “Show Mode” to open/close all vehicle doors at once

Koenigsegg has recently refurbished the former showroom area within the company’s Ängelholm production facility, transforming it into a new prototype workshop for the development of future vehicles and technology. The first offering from the new prototype workshop is a system available on the new Koenigsegg Regera, called ‘Autoskin’.

Autoskin allows the owner of the Regera to open and close the front luggage door, the rear engine cover door and both passenger and driver doors by remote control. The system uses lightweight hydraulics, soft-close mechanisms and proximity sensors to operate the doors in an effortless, fluid and safe motion that is as practical as it is beautiful.

“People often comment on our cars looking spectacular when all the doors of the vehicle are open,” said Christian von Koenigsegg. “Our new Autoskin system enhances this, adding a new level of beauty, practicality and sophistication to the most exciting new hypercar in the world – the Koenigsegg Regera.”

The distinctive key that will come with the Regera includes control buttons that allow owners to control each door individually. The remote also includes a button for ‘Show Mode’, which will open all doors and raise the rear spoiler on the Regera all at the same time.

The Autoskin system adds less than 5kgs in weight.

Watch the video below to see Autoskin in action, with commentary from Christian von Koenigsegg.

    What an incredible system! A perfect way for an owner to grow close to his famed Regera. I am impressed that you guys were able to develop something where you can not only change the car’s height with the push of a button, but open all the doors without even physically touching the car.

    I like to compare something like this to an interactive video game, where stuff happens at the push of a button. Now we can maybe see about fitting it with self-driving technology 🙂

    With the production scaled up for the Regera will you let the press review it.

      I’m quite sure the press will get their time with the Regera when the time is right.

    Steven!! Tell Mr.von Koenigsegg and Mr.Servanski that the Nurburgring’s speed limits are being removed and they are just taking more safety precautions now!

      Hi Michael,

      Reports that I’ve seen indicate that the Nurburgring authorities have submitted a plan for improvements at the track to the FIA, which has approved the plan. Those changes will be made early next year and limits will be removed then.

      Here’s a source for you

        Are you guys going to do a hot lap with the One:1 when that happens?

          No promises in this business but I’m sure it’ll be amongst our highest priorities next summer.

    Finally!
    No more limitations!

    Well Mr. von Koenigsegg, I guess you can finally let the One:1 loose at the ‘ring whenever you can! Do tell us when, and make sure you stun the world with a lap time that makes sure words fail to describe it!

    The new tech on your revolutionary Regera is astounding Mr. von Koenigsegg! You used polished CFRP for the hydraulic systems I presume? I guess now a proud owner of the Regera can make sure there are no fingerprints on his dream machine’s paint job……….LOL!

    Waiting for the record,
    Nimalan S. R.

    Can I please become your full time videographer? I have my own film company and also a degree in transport design from Coventry University? I haven’t seen any great films of your cars yet and THEY DESERVE IT! Let me know who to apply to. Thank you so much.

    i would do anything to have a regera, i WILL do anything to have a regera. btw, i read that you stilll have racing engine prototypesthat you once thought of using for koenigsegg, i read that you have 2 of these engines, will you ever make a car and place these engines inside of them so that both us and you can see the what if of koenigsegg?
