RIMAC CONCEPT ONE
Rimac's Concept One, the all-electric brainchild of 23 year-old entrepreneur Mate Rimac, is now on sale in Europe. Limited to just 88 cars, the supercar will wear a €742,000 price tag.
The high sticker price is unlikely to deter the usual collectors however, and its ultra-exclusive availability and unique powertrain should make the Concept_One a fast seller.
About the Concept_One
To build the Concept_One, Rimac Automobili recruited a group of ex-Pininfarina engineers and designer Adriano Mudri to its Zagreb headquarters, tasked with creating what it describes as the world's first electric supercar.
Power for the Concept_One is provided by four electric motors - two at each axle - delivering 800kW and 3800Nm of torque. Energy is provided by a sizeable 92kWh battery pack.
With a 0-100km/h time of 2.8 seconds, it's a hair slower than the former (2.46), and a touch quicker than the latter (3.2).
Top speed is listed at 305km/h - not shabby, but well short of the Veyron's 408km/h and the Huayra's 370km/h limits.
Rimac opened the order books on the Concept_One this week at the Top Marques event in Monaco.
