“We’re very happy that Jonny Smith got to spend time with Mate Rimac, the founder of Rimac Automobili. This groundbreaking company built the Rimac C1, yes, the one Mr Hammond totalled. Now, it’s the C_Two. Unimaginable stats, incredible technology. Yes, it’s an absurdly expensive supercar but Rimac are supplying technology and know-how to many other car makers.”

  • 0-60 mph in 1.85 seconds and 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 1.97 seconds
  • 0-300 km/h (186 miles) in 11.8 seconds
  • 1/4 mile in 9.1 seconds
  • 412 km/h (258 mph) top speed
  • 120 kWh battery (6,960 cells) for up to 650 km (404 miles) of NEDC range
  • four electric motors for all-wheel drive with torque vectoring
  • system output: 1.408 kW of power and 2.300 Nm of torque
  • 30 minute recharge (80%) using 250 kW CCS Combo charger
  • 3-phase 22 kW on-board charger

Damn… that is some extreme EV porn.

If looks could kill. That car just looks like it could kill you.

That is truly what a performance EV can do. My heart is racing just watching the video…

Can’t wait to see the lap video of this car. Hope whoever is driving it won’t crash it.

If I have unlimited cash to burn, I would totally get one of those.

Not to take anything away from it, and I think it is worth $2mil price tag. But it makes the Tesla Roadster an awefully cheap in comparison. I know that once you reach those performance level, a small increment would cost millions.

I don’t how anyone can make negative claims against EV now we have Rimac and Tesla to prove all the world wrong!

I can’t wait until someone takes each one around the Nurburgring. I don’t think I would be confident enough to put any real money down on which one would win.

Indeed. The Tesla Roadster (and even the Model S P100D) is actually a really good deal by comparison to their competition. They outperform cars that are much more expensive.

While I think this car is cool and all, it doesn’t serve much purpose considering the low numbers of production and ridiculously high price. Nevertheless, it’s probably good when arguments come up about ICE being able to outperform electric.

Rimac is actually profitable, but they make their money developing EV drivetrain components for other companies. I’m pretty sure they don’t make much money if any on the supercars, but that’s what the founder is really interested in. It does serve to show how far you can take an EV… For me, the most impressive thing is how programmable/customizable the drivetrain is on the fly.

So, at what point do the gear heads at Ford and Chevy get it and start designing electric replacements for Mustangs, Camaros and Corvettes??? It takes them 3 to 5 years to bring out a new gasoline based car. Probably longer for a brand new to their engineers fully electric car. If they wait much longer to start, they are going to lose their markets to others!
