Late last month, Croatian car startup Rimac teased out images of its new electric supercar, and disclosed it’ll be faster, costlier, and more grandiose than its first, the plainly called Concept One. There’s a new wrinkle to add, courtesy of Autocar, and I imagine it’ll make some of you groan: the car should be able…
Rimac, a car startup out of a small town in Croatia, plans to show us its new electric supercar in March. The company said it’ll be faster, more expensive and more luxurious than its first—the Concept One, which came out of nowhere rated at nearly 1,100 horsepower and able to destroy a LaFerrari in a drag race.
Other than host reactions and a short clip of what happened, we haven’t gotten much information on The Grand Tour host Richard Hammond’s huge, fiery crash during filming. But Hammond recently sat down to give the details, saying the crash “was like being in a tumble dryer full of bricks going down a hill.”
The Rimac Concept_One has been taking down some of the quickest hypercars in drag races and now it has turned its sights on the Bugatti Veyron. The result is a demonstration on how we are entering a new age of performance cars powered by batteries instead of pistons.
Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren are getting there, but new car company NIO just beat them to the punch and announced itself by introducing the EP9—a 1,360 horsepower fully-electric supercar with a top speed of 194 miles per hour.
The 1,073-horsepower Rimac Concept One can smoke a LaFerrari in a drag race. Thanks to its lifting suspension, it can also climb a steep hill and throw wood chips all over the place.
You’ll remember Rimac as the Croatian startup that built the mad and all-electric supercar, the Concept One. Remember that it has four motors and four gearboxes at each corner and makes 1073 horsepower and 1180 lb-ft of torque. So, clearly, the next logical thing to do is to pit it against two of the fastest cars on…
New-to-the-block supercar automaker Rimac is changing the game with its new all-electric 1,088 hp Concept One it debuted at Geneva. Rimac is also changing lives in a less flashy manner with its battery technology.
When Croatian electric supercar startup Rimac presented its first prototype, it had eight employees. Today, Rimac is a team of 150, with clients like world-beating hypercar company Koenigsegg, and products like the Concept One, a 1,088 horsepower electric supercar retailing for $1 million. Yet their confidential…
Rimac Automobili, an upstart Croatian supercar and battery engineering firm, just took the wraps off of two 1000-plus horsepower all-wheel drive electric vehicles. They’re absolutely gorgeous, and they each come with four motors and four gearboxes—one at each corner.
That's right. The 1,500 horsepower Koenigsegg Regera, almost certainly the world's fastest GT, has no gearbox at all. Meet the new era of direct drive.
We're not massive fans of
electric coal-powered cars here on Jalopnik, but that's mostly because electric cars are usually flimsy, slow commuter vehicles. There is a huge potential for electric cars, though, and it's in your hands.
We've written about Croatia's planned $980,000 electric Rimac Concept One supercar before, but with the same elbow-in-the-ribs skepticism rightly reserved for these endlessly rendered-yet-never built custom supercars. In our experience, about 1-in-600 ever gets made and the other 599 end up being part of some massive…
The Rimac Concept One is a 1,088 horsepower electric super car designed by 23 year old Croatian Mate Rimac that is set to take on the supercar establishment—if we ever actually see it in action. This video goes behind the scenes at Rimac's Croatian world headquarters
When a 23 year old introduces an electric super car to the world with a claimed 1,088 hp, 2,802 lb-ft of torque and a top speed of 189 MPH, people are going to listen—very suspiciously. That is exactly what Croatian designer Mate Rimac did at the Frankfurt Auto Show when he introduced the "Concept One".
Rimac Automobili, the Croatian car builder that brought us the blisteringly fast electric BMW E30, is planning to show their first electric vehicle concept to the world at this week's Frankfurt Motor Show. According to the manufacturer their all electric supercar will produce 1088 horsepower and 2800 ft/lbs of…
