Rimac C_Two Sells Out Before Its U.S Debut

MAR 29 2018 BY ADRIAN PADEANU 8

On average, buyers spent an incredible $615,000 on options.

Croatian hypercar marque Rimac unveiled the C_Two earlier this month during the Geneva Motor Show as a direct successor for the Concept_One made even more famous following Richard Hammond’s fiery crash. Now, three weeks later, nearly all 150 cars planned for production have already been accounted for, despite the model’s eye-watering starting price of about $2.1 million.

That’s not all. Rimac’s man in charge of sales, Kreso Coric, told Autocar this week at the New York Auto Show that on average, buyers have added about $615,300 worth of options on top of the car’s already steep asking price. In other words, the average sticker of a C_Two stands at about $2.7M and those fortunate enough to have signed their names on the dotted line will have to patiently wait until 2020 to get their cars.

It’s worth mentioning the two-seater fully electric hypercar is nowhere near as exclusive as its predecessor when it comes to the number of cars destined for production seeing as how the Concept_One was limited to just 8 units, plus 2 track-only Concept_S models.

The C_Two’s technical specifications and performance numbers are just as impressive as its average selling price. It has 1,888 horsepower (1,408 kilowatts) and 1,696 pound-feet (2,300 Newton-meters) of torque, hits 60 mph (96 kph) from a standstill in 1.85 seconds, and maxes out at 256 mph (412 kph) – not too shabby for a car that weighs a hefty 1,950 kilograms (4,300 pounds).

With the 120-kWh battery fully charged, Rimac’s newest electric gem will cover 404 miles (650 kilometers) between charges – based on the outgoing NEDC test cycle. Factor in level 4 autonomous driving capabilities, fast-charging to 80 percent in half an hour, and extensive use of carbon fiber, and you get one of the most technologically advanced cars ever made that will hopefully live up to the hype.

Not surprised at the sell-out. There seems to be lots of people with spare $millions willing to buy fantasy cars well beyond the reach of us mere mortals.

I should have added.. Good for them, I think it is a fantastic car, worthy of the claim to be the best supercar on the market.

Very happy for Mate and his team!

This is a great looking car, that sets new standards for what you can expect from a electric super car fantastic good news, hope the Rimarc brand will be around for the next 100 years

Looks stunning.
Too bad other normal car makers don’t have designers like this. Toyota with this looks, or a Nissan, VW, Opel.

Damn it! I was procrastinating waiting for my bonus … oh well, will have to settle for the Roadster 2.0.

I guess it’s alright.

Nice job rimac.
We need to see more companies like this.

Amazing. Great to see this electric supercar company grow.
