The most durable car in history: a crash test of the Rimac hypercar

Rimac has conducted final crash tests on the 1914-horsepower Nevera electric hypercar, which will complete the certification of the model in the US and European markets. Despite the fact that the cost of one car is two million dollars, the creators of the hypercar conducted 45 technical tests, in which ten prototypes participated. As a result of the final crash test, the specialists declared that they had built the most durable car ever.

During previous crash tests, the developers tested the strength of the structure during a frontal collision with a non-deformable barrier, and also simulated crashes with other vehicles. At the final stage, the electric Rimac Nevera was pushed sideways with a lamppost at a speed of 35 kilometers per hour. Experts have demonstrated that even at the time of such a serious impact, the design of the hypercar ensures the safety of the passenger. Moreover, after the collision, the engineers were able to open the crumpled door without any problems.

During the crash test, the passenger dummy experienced an overload of 25g, but remained unharmed. According to the developers, preliminary digital simulation of accidents allowed specialists to predict their results in advance. Through calculations, engineers built a hypercar with a torsional rigidity of 70,000 Nm/degree, almost twice the performance of other supercars. This means that the electric Rimac Nevera is the most durable car ever built.

Last November, Rimac crash-tested the Nevera hypercar. Before colliding with the barrier, a 1914-horsepower electric car was tested on forest roads.
