Default Rimac C_Two 1,900 BHP EV unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show

The Rimac C_Two is a 258mph self-driving electric hypercar. The 1,900bhp EV can sense your mood, even recognise your face. Then pulverise it.
The numbers and technology it packs is simply staggering

Quote:
Rimac is back. This is the C_Two, successor to the Concept_One electric hypercar. It’s more powerful, faster, goes further on a charge, and terrifyingly clever. And rather beautiful, in a futuristic kind of way. Strap in, and prepare yourself for an absurd set of numbers.

Rimac claims the C_Two’s four electric motors develop a combined 1,914hp (1,887bhp) and 1,696lb ft – or 2,300Nm in new money. The front wheels individually use a single-speed gearbox each, while the use of twin two-speed gearboxes at the rear makes for a truly terrifying top speed. Rimac is claiming v-max at 258mph.

On the way, we’re told the C_Two will have cracked 0-60mph in 1.85 seconds (albeit with an American drag strip-friendly one-foot rollout), and 0-62mph, for we Europeans, in 1.97 seconds.

If the driver remains conscious, the Rimac will cover off 0-100mph in 4.3 seconds. Quarter-mile? 9.1 seconds. And don’t presume it runs out of puff once past three figures. Rimac reckons its new flagship will see off 0-186mph in 11.8 seconds. If these numbers prove to be accurate, then Croatia’s super-EV will enter a very exclusive speed club occupied by the likes of the Bugatti Chiron and Koenigsegg Agera RS. The fastest cars in the world.
Despite a completely carbon fibre chassis (with integrated batteries), carbon crash structures and carbon panels, the C_Two is no lightweight – it’s a 1,950kg machine. However, Rimac has worked to disguise this with intelligent torque-vectoring, which is fully adaptive between all four wheels.

A twist of the knob inside the fabulously modern cabin shifts drive between the axles, enabling what Rimac calls “from full grip to extended drifting capability.” In fact, the system is said to be so smart, the C_Two doesn’t have conventional stability and traction control nannies. Instead of jabbing at the monster 390mm carbon ceramic brakes to reign in performance, it’s left to the torque-vectoring tech to juggle the drive and sort out your ham-fistedness.

Of course, the brakes can recover power back into the lithium-manganese-nickel battery, which scores a 403-mile range on the NEDC test and takes 30 minutes to store 80 per cent range using a fast-charger. Rimac says the car can complete two full laps of the Nürburgring “with a neglible drop in performance”. Does anyone else smell a lap record attempt?

If the Rimac is to become a circuit champ, it’ll depend heavily on aerodynamic aids, and its packaging. The rear wing adopts multiple positions for low-drag and high-downforce, working in tandem with a flat underbelly and Venturi tunnels. Stand on the stoppers and it shoots bolt upright to become an airbrake, while flaps in the bonnet deploy to harness even more airflow. Meanwhile, cooling intakes automatically open and close when required, without the driver having to intervene.

Quote:
In fact, the driver doesn’t have to do a lot in the C_Two, if they choose not to. The new car is ready for Level 4 autonomy, thanks to eight cameras, a lidar, six radars, and twelve ultrasonic sensors. There’s all the usual lane assist this and auto-braking that (usual for luxury saloons that is, not 250mph hypercars) and Rimac says each hour spent in the car generates 6 gigabytes of data. This really is a laptop on wheels.

Small wonder Rimac says the 72 ECUs and processors on board have the same computing power as 22 Macbook Pros…

But there’s more tech. Scary tech. On-board cameras with facial recognition have not only dispensed with the need for a key – the car simply looks at your face before deciding to open the butterfly doors and start the powertrain – but Rimac says the car can also read your moods. Apparently, if you’re getting ratty, the car will soften its ride and play soothing music to calm you down. Which is terrifying and yet sensible, when there’s 1,900bhp under your right foot.

Off to a track day? The car knows which one, and will load suggested racing lines and braking points onto its touchscreen to help you score the best time.

Meanwhile, the car is watching the heavens. If it gets foggy or starts to rain, the Rimac will adjust its drivetrain and traction management to keep you safe. Automatically, natch. Top Gear is pleased to welcome our new robot overlord.

Spotted the twin crash helmet stowage in the rear cargo bay? If you don’t like it, Rimac will instead expose the drivetrain, or fit a safe for your belongings. You probably don’t have to ask them. The car can just look at you and decide the spec you’d prefer. Maybe.

So, it’s as quick as the Tesla Roadster. It exists now, not in three years’ time. It’s got twice the range of a conventional petrol hypercar, more computing power than any luxury saloon, and it’s rather pretty. We don’t know the price yet, but for this breadth of ability, and such searing performance, we’re expecting Rimac will want paying handsomely. And deserve to be.

Impressive specs and looks but what will it cost, considering the concept one was around 1 million dollars.
The acceleration and top speed is hardly any better then the next generation Tesla roadster which does 1.9sec to 60mph and top speed of 250+ mph for the base model and the tesla base model is supposed to cost $200000 .
I guessing this will cost several times more then the tesla.

I have watched this clip n number of times, far more than I can even remember or count. I coudn't agree more with Hammond when he says "If that is the future I am so ready"; but it looks like there is more to the future with Rimac 2!



I love torque, doesn't matter if its Electric

Default Rimac Nevera | The fastest accelerating production car in the world | 100 km/h in 1.85 seconds

Croatian electric car manufacturer Rimac has unveiled the Nevera which is touted to be the fastest accelerating production car in the world. The 1900 hp electric hypercar monstrosity is capable of hitting 100 km/h in 1.85 seconds (that's how long it takes to say 100 km/h) and a top speed of 412 km/h. It is said to make the 0-300 km/h dash in 9.3 seconds. All this while delivering a range of about 540 kms from its 120 kWh battery pack. Only 150 examples will be built, each retailing at over 2 million euros. Hammond doesn't have to try hard to crash this one!

News link here and here

Quote:
The car’s architecture encompasses a 6,960-cell, 120kWh Lithium/Manganese/Nickel battery pack in an H shape along the spine and behind the cockpit. There are four surface-mounted permanent magnet motors driving each wheel individually, the most advanced torque vectoring ever achieved and a power output equivalent to 1914bhp and 1,740lb ft of torque. A pair of single-speed gearboxes are connected to the front and rear wheels. The Nevera has a range of 340 miles WLTP and hooked up to a 500 kW charger takes 19 minutes to go from zero to an 80 per cent state of charge. What we do know is that it accelerates to 60mph in 1.85 seconds, 100mph in 4.3secs, and demolishes the quarter mile from a standing start in 8.6secs. Oh, and 186mph is dusted in 9.3 seconds, which makes the Nevera marginally faster than a contemporary F1 car. Consider that it weighs 2,150kg and you get some idea how utterly nuts the physics are here.




Just see how ridiculously it outpaces a Ferrari SF90 Stradale

The way the 'Rimac Nevera' left that SF90 is sheer horror for Ferrari fans. Reminds me of the scene from Cars 3 where Lightning McQueen cant keep up with the next generation of hyper racing cars. The Ferrari SF90 is by no means an old car & is a 2019 car with plug in hybrid option. As far as brand value goes, Ferrari is Ferrari. But they have to keep an eye on the future too. I don't think anyone saw this coming, but if the legacy sports car makers are not carful, new entrants can indeed shake up the segment.

We can all appreciate the Nevera for its outstanding performance. But I really don't think theres much point to the drag race though. So the car with double the horsepower won the race. Whats surprising about that? The Rimac had about 1000 bhp more, if anything its a surprise that it was just 1 second ahead of the ferrari with half the horsepower in the qtr mile. Somebody could drag race a golf and an M5 and showcase the same difference in performance.

Don't think it's entirely pointless though. The SF90 isn't that old a car. It's a 2019 model hypercar that is quite a performer. I think the race serves the purpose to showcase how much of a performance upgrade is possible when these electric powertrains come into the fray. We all knew electric cars would democratize performance. But I always wondered what would happen to the upper limit of performance, the elite hyper car lot. How much more can they keep on improving before the car finally takes off. Rimac has shown us just that. If you look at the speeds at the end of the quarter mile, the Rimac is at 171 mph (275 km/h) and the SF90 at 148 mph (238 km/h). When you consider the amount of force required to overcome the aerodynamic drag at those speeds, it becomes clear what Rimac has actually achieved.

Secondly, it is quite a fascinating picture where a low volume, comparatively new manufacturer can deliver performance that can outclass competitors who have got a richer heritage, and automotive sports history. We know about the effort, time and money Bugatti put in to develop a 1000 bhp Veyron, that too when it was backed by the auto giant Volkswagen. If you look at the history of Rimac Automobili, it all started when Mate Rimac took his hobby garage activity seriously, when in 2007 he electrified his 1984 BMW E30. It's just mind-blowing how far they have come (speaking of which, Porsche engineering has around a 10% stake in Rimac). Although IC engines always sport a special place in us petrol heads' minds, the future of electric mobility indeed looks bright.

How does it even have enough traction to do that?! Surely, this is the acceleration limit of non-rocket propelled cars.

I loved the Carwow video - Just the way it teases the Ferrari. Reminds me of the Grand Tour episode where they drive the Rimac Concept One.

Pretty good achievement for a 10 year old company. Although all were busy exploring it's performance, I guess the interior quality is pretty good when compared to some of Koenigsegg's models which felt cheap in some areas.

Pretty hefty price tag too

All Mind-Bending facts, surely.

However, I see that one fact has been missed out above.
The Price.

A truly Mind-Bending 2,000,000 Pounds.

On a side note, Interestingly, Porsche seems to own about 24% of the overall stake in Rimac.

Rimac Nevera unveiled with 1914 BHP & 0 - 100 km/h in 1.85 seconds

Rimac Automobili has unveiled the final production version of its new Nevera electric hypercar. The Nevera is based on the brand's C_Two concept, showcased back in 2018.

Rimac Nevera | The fastest accelerating production car in the world | 100 km/h in 1.85 seconds-rimacnevara1.jpg

The design of the Rimac Nevera remains similar to its concept version. However, the company claims to have made some changes, which have improved aerodynamic efficiency by up to 34% compared to the initial prototypes.

Rimac Nevera | The fastest accelerating production car in the world | 100 km/h in 1.85 seconds-rimacnevara4.jpg

These changes include a slightly altered bonnet along with tweaks to the diffusers, splitters and radiators. The Nevera also features redesigned inlets and cooling channels, increasing cooling efficiency of both, the brakes and powertrain system by 30% at low speeds.

Rimac has also offered the Nevera with numerous active aero elements. This allows the electric hypercar to switch between 'high downforce' to 'low-drag', to optimise the performance according to the driving scenario.

Powering the Rimac Nevera are four electric motors - one for each wheel. The motors are paired with a 120kWh H-shaped lithium-ion battery pack, designed by Rimac. The electric powertrain offers a combined output of 1,914 BHP and 2,360 Nm.

In terms of performance, Rimac claims that the Nevera is capable of accelerating from 0 - 100 km/h in just 1.85 seconds, with the quarter-mile coming up in 8.6 seconds. The car has a claimed top speed of 412 km/h. The Nevera is claimed to offer a range of 547 km on a single charge (WLTP cycle).

The Rimac Nevera comes with seven driving modes - Sport, Drift, Comfort, Range, Track and two individual modes. It also comes with an AI driving coach and a host of connected technologies.

Rimac has announced that only 150 units of the Nevera will be produced. Each of these electric hypercars will come with a price tag starting at 2 million euros and will be manufactured in Zagreb, Croatia.
