Default Gorgeous & Electric : The Rimac Concept 1

Rimac Automobili started up in Croatia in 2009. Started by Mate Rimac, a young inventor and a team of 20 enthusiasts, engineers and designers.

Watch this. Absolutely gorgeous :


Mate talks about the design and build :



Water-cooled electric motors shoot the Concept 1 from 0-100 in 2.8 seconds.

That's one beautiful car. 0-100 in 2.8 seconds is supercool!

What is equally interesting is how a small but passionate team can design and develop something that matches and even trumps efforts from bigger established players.

Thanks for sharing, Rehaan
