The Regera was meticulously crafted to offer a luxurious megacar alternative to Koenigsegg’s signature extreme, lightweight, race-inspired road-legal vehicles. It seamlessly integrates a potent twin-turbo V8 combustion engine with three electric motors and state-of-the-art battery power through an innovative powertrain technology known as the Koenigsegg Direct Drive. While maintaining the hallmark levels of practicality, creature comforts, and features synonymous with Koenigsegg, our primary objective has always been to engineer the fastest cars in the world. The Regera upholds this legacy while introducing groundbreaking technology that harmonizes breathtaking speed, supreme comfort, and an unparalleled Direct Drive experience.
The highly anticipated launch of Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s first hybrid endurance racing prototype, the SC63, took place at the prestigious Goodwood Festival of Speed. This groundbreaking vehicle, set to revolutionize endurance racing, will soon undergo testing and is slated to compete in the Hypercar class of the 2024 FIA World Endurance Championship, including iconic races like the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as well as in the GTP class of the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship Endurance Cup, featuring renowned events such as the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring. Lamborghini has joined forces with the esteemed Italian team Iron Lynx to manage the car’s participation in international competitions, and has enlisted world-class drivers from both Formula 1 and endurance racing.
The debut of the SC63 represents a significant milestone for Lamborghini, aligning with their strategic vision outlined in the 2021 Direzione Cor Tauri roadmap, which aims to electrify the entire model range by the end of 2024 while enhancing driving experiences and performance. This venture into hybrid endurance racing underscores Lamborghini’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of high-performance mobility, as demonstrated by their recent road legal car, the Revuelto. According to Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini Chairman and CEO, the SC63 marks a pivotal step into the future of motorsports for Squadra Corse, embodying the brand’s ethos of “Driving Humans Beyond.”
The SC63 boasts a cutting-edge 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, meticulously developed by Lamborghini engineers exclusively for the racing program. With its ‘cold V’ configuration and specifically crafted aero dynamics, the SC63 promises unparalleled performance, agility, and consistency over both single laps and long-distance races. Compliance with LMDh regulations ensures that power output from the engine and hybrid system is limited to 500kW (680 CV), managed by a Bosch electronic control unit. While certain components such as the gearbox, battery, and motor generator unit are standardized across LMDh-category cars to contain development costs, Lamborghini engineers have tailored other aspects, such as the gearbox customization and braking system, to optimize performance and reliability.
The design of the SC63, overseen by Lamborghini’s Centro Stile design department, is a harmonious blend of functionality and unmistakable Lamborghini flair, featuring iconic brand styling cues throughout. With a striking livery reminiscent of the Huracán GT3 challenger and meticulous attention to detail in every aspect of its construction, the SC63 is poised to make a formidable impact on the endurance racing circuit.
As Lamborghini prepares to embark on this exhilarating new chapter in motorsports, the anticipation is palpable. With a stellar lineup of drivers and the expertise of the Iron Lynx team, the SC63 is primed to leave its mark on the track, embodying Lamborghini’s unwavering commitment to innovation, performance, and excellence.

1964 Aston Martin DB5 4.2-Litre Sports Saloon Registration no. AJW 646B
It’s difficult to imagine how the Aston Martin DB5 would be perceived today if it hadn’t been immortalized by its association with the James Bond franchise. This iconic connection instantly elevated the DB5 from being a highly-desirable, hand-crafted GT car to one of the most coveted motorcars of all time. Adding to its allure is its rarity – with fewer than 900 coupe versions produced during its production period, and only 388 currently accounted for by the DVLA. Consequently, well-maintained examples like this one retain their value and continue to be sought after by aficionados of the model, making it likely that this particularly well-presented, low-owner, low-mileage, matching-numbers example will generate strong interest.
According to its accompanying documentation, chassis DB5/1614/R rolled off the assembly line at Newport Pagnell in the spring of 1964. Finished in Sierra blue paintwork matched with fawn-colored Connolly leather upholstery, the same attractive livery adorns the car 59 years later. Its factory-fitted equipment includes triple SU HD8 carburetors, Armstrong Selectaride dampers, Powr-Lok limited-slip differential, Dunlop RS5 tires, and a heated rear screen.
The DB5 was originally delivered to Cyril Williams Motors Ltd and first registered in Wolverhampton on June 11, 1964, for the benefit of Philip Horton, under the care of whose family it remained for the ensuing 41 years. Maintained for much of that time by Andy Chapman of marque specialist Chapman Spooner, the car is recorded as successfully participating in AMOC concours events as early as 1966. After passing a thorough inspection by former factory service manager Colin Thew, the Aston was acquired by noted photographer David Campbell in the spring of 2005. Throughout his ownership, it was maintained by Post Vintage Engineers (PVE), who made various improvements including installing a high-capacity radiator, stainless steel exhaust system, and unleaded cylinder head conversion. PVE also increased the engine capacity from 4.0 to 4.2 liters, and added an air conditioning system, Becker radio, and boot-mounted CD multi-changer. Subsequently, the DB5 changed hands to solicitor Peter Mimpriss of Nayland, Suffolk in 2009, who, before taking delivery, saw PVE completely rebuild the engine and retrim the car in Connolly VM3234 to its original specification. During the tenure of the fourth owner, Michael Wilson, ‘AJW 646B’ underwent further restoration work, including renewal of all glass, re-chroming of much of the brightwork, and installation of power steering by Aston Engineering Ltd.
The previous keeper purchased the Aston from the Bonhams auction of 2 June June 2018, https://cars.bonhams.com/auction/24875/lot/218/1964-aston-martin-db5-42-litre-sports-saloon-chassis-no-db51614r/ and has recently treated it to a comprehensive service courtesy of a renowned Aston Martin marque specialist. The vendor presently has no hesitation in describing the enlarged twin-cam engine, five-speed manual ZF gearbox, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim as all being in ‘excellent’ order, and is now offering this splendid example of a much treasured model complete with a comprehensive history file that includes: Heritage Certificate, the original manufacturer’s guarantee, numerous items of correspondence, a copy of the log book from the car’s spell on the Isle of Man (during which it was registered ‘1964 MN’), plus sundry invoices for work caried out over the years.

The renowned DB5 evolved directly from the Aston Martin DB4 Series V model. The key enhancements included an increase in engine capacity from 3.7 to 4.0 liters and, with only a few exceptions in early production, an upgrade from the David Brown four-speed manual transmission to a five-speed ZF unit. Production spanned from 1963 to 1965, yielding a total of 1,059 coupes, convertibles, and shooting brakes. Powered by a DOHC engine delivering 282bhp, the ‘Superleggera’-bodied four-seaters could accelerate to 60mph in approximately 8.0 seconds and achieve a top speed of around 145mph.
A pristine example with five owners, boasting 57,399 miles on the odometer and matching numbers.
Features include LSD, power steering, and UB air-conditioning.
Engine underwent a thorough rebuild and enlargement to 4.2 liters in 2009.
