At the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018 Croatia’s Rimac Automobili introduced an all-electric hypercar called the Concept Two. This promised to be an extravagantly performing vehicle for all its purposes and a predecssor to the Concept One.
To start with, the C Two claims to gain as much as 1,914 horsepower, rolling from 0 to 60 mph in a paltry 1.85 seconds. If the vehicle ever comes around, it would outrightly be one of the fastest cars to grace this planet.
But you can’t doubt that Rimac knows how to achieve such outrageous speeds. The Rimac’s Concept One, brought around in 2012, boasted 1,073 horsepower derived from four electric motors.
In that case, even if Rimac, for one reason or the other fails to actualize this dream, it still has lessons to teach other manufacturers. The company, for instance, claims that its 120 kWh battery enables over 400 miles of range. Furthermore, the company will ensure that the car is tech crazy, with facial recognition technology being used to unlock and start the car.
But even as we get mesmerized by Rimac speed and performance claims, it is worth remembering that The Grand Tour host Richard Hammond’s escaped by sheer luck from a crash while riding in the Rimac Concept One
This notwithstanding the company is hellbent on building 150 copies of the Concept Two.
