New cars always result in new inventions that surprise us all. Today we show an example that is not especially among new cars but it is quite a change. This is the Koenigsegg Regera, received a carbon fiber makeover. Koenigsegg has built his first model Completely finished with a bare carbon finish of own development.
New cars Koenigsegg Regera finished in KNC
The company has named it KNC and has completely reinvented the well-known supercar. Koenigsegg has been perfecting the KNC method for some time, applying it to parts such as wheels, wings, spacers, ailerons and steering wheels, with great effect. The development process involves the creation of multiple samples and exposure to various elements for several years.
Within all these variations included the extreme heat and the sun. Also, do not overlook the cold and damp winter. Always ensuring at all times that these conditions will not adversely affect the surface. As a result, the margin of error is extremely fine and can result in a perfect high-gloss finish or exposed carbon fiber yarns.
The exterior of the KNC was subjected to a very delicate finishing process that is generally used to treat the interior of the hood and the interior parts according to the explanations offered by the manufacturers. As part of the process first the epoxy layer is removed and then the surface is polished to a raw carbon state.
Unlike other new cars the end result is a body that is striking both visually and to the touch. The Koenigsegg Regera, becomes cold to the touch, since the material is pure carbon, instead of an insulating layer of epoxy or lacquer with carbon underneath. On the other hand it is necessary to mention that the brightness acquires a more metallic graphite appearance.
The reason is that each strand of graphite is now fully exposed. Without painting of clear lacquer in the car, and with the thin layer of polished epoxy, the Regera KNC is about 20 kg lighter than a painted Koenigsegg. Instead of reflecting the shape of a panel covered with a transparent layer, the light reproduces each strand of carbon fiber.

A significant difference between KNC and exposed carbon is that KNC is much stronger. Other softer lacquers are sensitive to stone chips and sharp objects that cause scratches. While the exposed carbon is more durable. The KNC Regera was recently delivered to its owner in Switzerland.
It is not uncommon for a customer to specify their car with visible carbon fiber, confirms Christian von Koenigsegg, CEO. It is a beautiful material from a visual perspective and our customers love to show what the car is made of. KNC takes the idea of visible carbon fiber to a whole new level, revealing a beautiful shine and a very silky finish.
The Koenigsegg philosophy has always been about exploring the extremes. It's great to extend that idea to a new way of finishing and presenting a car. An obvious requirement of any construction of new cars for racing, motorcycles or high performance boats is that it is strong and lightweight.
For these reasons, carbon fiber has been recognized as the best material for the job. Carbon fiber also has several applications in science. One of the main uses is carbon fiber electrodes. They can be done simply by buying a carbon fiber sheet not fixed in resin, but single-fiber microscopic electrodes have been around since the 1970s.
