Rimac Automobili, the new found carmaker from the country of Croatia gave us the insane Rimac Concept One back in 2013. Now after being in the business for eight years, the Croatian carmaker has dropped a teaser for the Concept One successor which will break cover at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
The niche carmaker promised an initial run of 88 units for the Concept One but only fulfilled a fraction of that in metal. The Concept One also got a more powerful, lighter version at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show called the Concept S. The Concept One produces a whopping 1,224 horsepower and a face-shoving 2,548 Newton-meters of turning force. The electric hypercar can accelerate to a 100kmph in just 2.5 seconds and to a top speed of 354kmph). Not to mention an electric range of around 320 kilometres.
So obviously the successor of the maniacally fast Concept One ought to be even more powerful, boasting of serious mind-boggling numbers. All that Rimac has to say about their new hypercar in the teaser is that it will be a game changer. The silhouette of the hypercar in the vague teaser does look other worldly. Since it has to keep up its reputation amongst the growing crop of electric hypercars (of which we saw some in 2017 and you can read all about them over here.)
A few months back the carmaker procured an investment of 36 million USD (30 million Euros) from the Shanghai-based Camel Group, which is Asia’s largest battery manufacturer. With the new cash flowing in, Rimac is also planning to open new dealerships across Europe and America. Thus establishing themselves as a mainstream electric carmaker to rival the likes of Tesla and Nio.
