Drive Inside The First US Delivered Rimac Concept_One With Mate Rimac – Video

SEP 4 2016 BY MARK KANE 18

Here is rare opportunity to see a Rimac Concept_One infotainment walkthrough, and also a demonstration of the car’s acceleration from a passenger perspective via the first US delivered car.

And the driver also happens to be Mate Rimac, CEO and founder of the Rimac Automobili – so he probably has lots of nice things to say about the supercar’s setup.

The Croatian all-electric hypercar commands respect, but with new Tesla Model S P100DL on the way (details) it already has found a worthy competitor in terms of raw acceleration.

“I had a drive in the Rimac Concept_One during the 2016 Carweek in Monterey. It was pretty awesome. Not only this is my first ride ever in an electric car (looks like I picked my timing pretty well, it’s the fastest electric car out there at the moment), but it’s also a marvel of technology & information = you know EVERYTHING. It’s basically a computer on wheels, as explained by Mate RIMAC, the CEO.”

Performance:

  • 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.6 seconds
  • 0-200 km/h in 6.2 seconds
  • 0-300 km/h in 14.2 seconds

I love the options for Calibrating the Car, the interface looks nice!
I hope Tesla will open up for the developer of apps so it would be more consumable, I would really like to change this small cars popping up to show the autopilot feature. it does not make sense to me

It’s surprisingly noisy, I don’t like that. Apart from that it looks like a great car.

It is a sportscar after all – what did you expect?

I expected it to be less noisy

0-100Km/h is similar to the P100D, but if it really does 0-200km/h in 6.2 seconds, that trounces the P100D. As we know the P100D may trap close to 200km/h in the quarter mile, but that is closer to 11 seconds, which is much slower than the 6.2 claimed figure of the Rimac.

Basd on the three times the rimac has acceleration around 11, 7,5 and 3,475 m/s² until it reaches 100, 200 and 300 km/h.

After 6.2s the rimac is around half the quarter mile.

After 9.6s the Rimac should finish the quarter mile.

But these figures are probably still to low since i assumed a constant acceleration in the three intervalls. A better approximation would be a decreasing acceleration within each intervall that leads to these average acceleration values. Meaning the initial acceleration in each intervall is higher than i assumed. The Rimac might even break a 9s quarter mile time.

Recalculated a bit, the Rimac will most likely hit 9.1-9.4s for the quarter mile. A time below 9s seems not accievable in my opinion.

High 9s would be nice. The Mclaran and 918 run high 9s at around 140 mph I believe. My friend’s mildly modified GTR running on E85 ran 10.3 at 138mph.

Looks like a nice car. Strictly a toy… it’s the size of a Miata. Nice telemetry… I know the Tesla has it under the surface but doesn’t expose it. True sports cars give you that stuff 🙂

Very small!

Oh, and it’s kinda noisy in the cockpit with all those gearboxes.

Way too noisy, but the control panel is nice.

This Concept One will be quicker on 1/4 mile than Veyron super sport, Mclaren P1, Laferrari and Porsche 918. Concept one is faster than Model S P90DL with 1.5 sec on 1/4 mile.

I Love the noise

Guys, I think the noise is generated through the speakers to make you feel better, given the price you’ve paid for the car:-)

It is a great sport car for sure but it would be nice if they also started to make a sedan like Tesla did after the roadster and perhaps afterwards their own Rimac version of the Model 3. Even a fraction of this performance would make great cars for people to buy.

For those of you complaining about it being too noisy, you do know that God invented the car stereo don’t you?

To noisy? It’s a super car. I’m glad it has the noise, sounds like a monorail or a jet starting up. I would hate for it to be quiet. That would ok for a sedan, but not a sports car.
