Rimac’s freshly unveiled hypercar features 120 kWh battery pack, active aerodynamics, fantastic 2300 Nm of torque and some other incredible things.
Croatian automaker won’t escape comparisons with Tesla Roadster in the nearest future. Official presentation of a new hypercar at the Geneva International Motor Show opened up the car’s specs – and if we forget about the C_Two limited production volume (as well as the price tag), evaluating only the technical data and specs, than Roadster will definitely face a mighty competitor.
New Rimac’s electric weapon is equipped with four electric motors (one on each wheel) and four gearboxes – one-gear on each front wheel and two-gears on each rear wheel. Such complex system is controlled by the torque vectoring system.
Another C_Two feature making the hypercar cut seconds on a racetrack is the active aerodynamics. The bonnet, rear diffusor, front splitter and rear airwing with adjustable height and incidence directs the air flow in real time to assure the highest stability in turns and highest speed on straights.
By the way, C_Two 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) acceleration counts only 1.84 seconds, 0-100 mph (160 km/h) – 4.3 seconds. Hypercar’s top speed reaches 415 km/h (258 mph) , while the massive battery pack assures for 650 km (404 miles).
Rimac C_Two also allows the driver to relax a bit. Hypercar is equipped with autonomous driving system with traffic jam autopilot, lane keeping assistant, blind area monitoring and adaptive cruise control.
There also is a great feature for real petrolheads who enjoys hitting the race tracks – virtual race coach. Racing tracks data may be uploaded into the onboard system – after the analysis your race assistant will hint the perfect lane and braking/acceleration points. Moreover, the interior is equipped with six screens, power sport seats and steering wheel.
According to the Rimac, only 150 C_Two hypercars will be built and the launch of production is scheduled on 2020. Official price is not released, though the expected price is close to 1.6 million Euro.
