Rimac Readies 1,900-hp Hypercar
Croatia’s Rimac Automobili says it will unveil the production version of its high-performance C Two concept electric car at the Geneva auto show next March.
The concept version is powered by four electric motors that produce a combined 1,900 lbs and promise a top speed of 256 mph. Sales will start in 2021 with a starting price of about $2.5 million.
Production will be capped at about 50 units at the company’s factory in Croatia. The facility also will build Automobili Pininfarina’s upcoming Battista supercar.
Earlier this week Rimac also announced plans to open a technical center in the U.K.
Founded in 2009, Rimac has produced several prototype and low-volume EVs. Rimac also supplies batteries for such high-performance electrics as the Koenigsegg Regera and Aston Martin Valkyrie.
Porsche and Hyundai and its Kia affiliate all own minority stakes in Rimac.
The little car that could still can. And this time as a car that not only gets great fuel economy, but which has ride and handling that makes it more than an econo-box (and its styling is anything but boxy).
Although the term “continuous improvement” is generally associated with another company, Honda is certainly pursuing that approach, as is evidenced by the Accord, which is now in its ninth generation.
Ford has made an accomplishment that will never be bested, never even be tied.
