Luxury Sports Car Brand Koenigsegg Announces New Model With CarPlay Support
Today, Swedish car manufacturer Koenigsegg showed off its latest 1,800 horsepower hybrid vehicle with built-in support for Apple’s CarPlay.
The car manufacturer showed off the Regera, which translates to “to reign” in Swedish, at the Geneva Motor Show earlier today. The car is equipped with a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine along with three electric motors and can top out at a speed of 255 miles per hour.
The sports car’s interior is equipped with an infotainment system that includes a 9-inch touchscreen, which is said to offer superior touch performance and the capability for users to use multi-touch gestures. The system is compatible with Apple’s CarPlay, letting iPhone users connect their devices to their cars and access all of CarPlay’s features.
The Koenigsegg Regera is priced at $1,890,000 and the manufacturer says that only 80 of them will be produced.
Apple has announced a long list of automobile manufacturers that have agreed to include CarPlay in upcoming vehicles. So far, Ferrari is the only brand that has produced a car that is compatible with Apple’s service. Audi, Volkswagen, and Hyundai have all said CarPlay-compatible cars will be available in 2015.
