This 1,073 HP Electric Hypercar from Croatia is Ready to Hit the Road
It makes puny Teslas look like go-karts.
The mysterious 28-year-old Croat known as Mate Rimac is about to unleash his hellishly fast 1,073 hp electric hypecar, the Rimac Concept_One, at the Geneva Motor Show.
The vehicle was first teased at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, but is now ready for production, Rimac says.
Only eight Concept_Ones will be built at about $810,000 apiece, and six of them have already been sold.
The Concept_One is powered by a Veyron-busting 1073 hp, all-electric powertrain consisting of four permanent magnet oil-cooled motors producing a combined torque figure of 1,180-lb-ft.
That’s good enough to deliver a 0-62 mph time of 2.6 seconds with a top speed of 221 mph, Rimac claims.
Inside, the high-tech two-seater will feature a custom built infotainment system with a 4G LTE Internet connection and even its own Cloud.
You know, just in case you need to access some files after getting all charged up on the track.
