Carbon-fibre meets walls, potholes and rubber mallets
Watching any crash test is mesmerising, but there's something especially compelling about seeing a Swedish wedge of carbon-fibre meet an unfortunate (but necessary) end.
To celebrate its following on social media, Koenigsegg has cut a montage of Regera crash tests.
Although it's only a brief video, it's clear the Regera has been through the wringer as a part of its development.
The clip shows side impacts, front and rear crashes and a serious door slamming, along with the car being enthusiastically beaten with rubber mallets.
There's a massive ditch and steep kerb involved in the tests, too, along with a tyre wall like the one Top Gear hit in a CCX.
Although the tests weren't fully independent – think ANCAP or Euro NCAP – the video is more than we see from plenty of other, more mainstream manufacturers.
A number of 'benchmark' sports cars, including the Porsche 911 and Mercedes-Benz SL, never make it into the hands of independent testers, because it's too expensive for NCAP authorities to buy three vehicles for front, side and offset testing.
