Rimac Concept_One Takes On Porsche 918 Spyder – Videos
Recently, the Rimac Concept_One raced and beat the Ferrari LaFerrari in the quarter mile. It was only a matter of time before the Rimac would get put up against the Porsche 918 Spyder. And the time came …
The Rimac team from Croatia attempted to pull off the race against the infamous acid green Porsche, owned by Alejandro Salomon, during a visit to Monterey Car Week, in California. Plans didn’t come to fruition. However, a race at Milan Dragway, near Detroit, was scheduled. To make the situation even better, the race was filmed for a three-part episode of Bangin’ Gears.
The series will feature Mate Rimac, the company’s founder, showing off the 1088 horsepower Concept_One’s abilities. The two cars raced several times, and while all the races were close, and the Porsche actually came out ahead in one, the Rimac had the best time … a whopping 9.9 second quarter mile for the win.
For the racing gurus out there, you can wait a few weeks to see the series in its entirety, or through this link to the paid version of the video here. For a few bucks, you can see it all.
