On June 1, Croatian firm Rimac Automobili will declassify the production version of its new electric hypercar. Announcing the event on Facebook, the head of the company, Mate Rimac, wrote that he is waiting for this day “like children are waiting for Christmas.”
This is a coupe first shown at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show as a concept called C_Two. A year later, an improved version of an electric car was brought to the same exhibition, and still there was to debut a commercial model in 2020 – but the show was canceled due to the coronavirus. All this time, Rimats and his comrades did not stop working on the car, periodically talking about the development of the project: we saw crash tests, driving tests of prototypes, and the like. At the same time, the Rimac brand itself “matured”: significant shares in it now belong to Porsche and Hyundai-Kia.
The original version of the Rimac C_Two had four electric motors with a combined output of 1914 hp. and 2300 Nm and a battery with a capacity of 120 kilowatt-hours. Acceleration to 100 km / h in 1.97 seconds, a top speed of 412 km / h and a cruising range of 550 kilometers (WLTP cycle) on a single charge were announced. Over the past three years, the hypercar has undergone numerous improvements in design, ergonomics and performance, while the key characteristics should remain at least as good as previously announced.
On June 1, among other things, the name of the model will be revealed to us, since C_Two is just an in-house designation, taken by analogy with the name of the previous hypercar, Rimac Concept_One. The planned circulation is no more than 150 copies. It is estimated that by now all or almost all of them have been sold out at prices starting from about 1.7 million euros, with many clients gaining options for another half a million euros.
