£676k buys you an all-electric hypercar that's capable of reaching 62mph in 2.6sec and a top speed of 221mph
24 February 2016

Rimac has revealed the production version of its 1073bhp fully electric Concept-One model at the Geneva Motor Show.

First shown at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, the model has now reached production stage. Eight examples will be built; six have already been sold.

Customer orders were being taken back in 2012, with deliveries expected to commence the following year. Now, four years on, the Croatian company is finally showing the model in production form.

The Concept-One is powered by a 1073bhp all-electric powertrain, consisting of four permanent magnet oil-cooled motors producing a combined torque figure of 1180lb ft, giving the car a claimed 0-62mph time of 2.6sec. Give it a further 3.6sec and the car will hit 124mph on its way to a top speed of 221mph.

Transmission is mounted to each individual electric motor, with double-clutch two-speed gearboxes mounted to the rear axle and single-speed units used up front.

All-wheel torque vectoring technology is used to manipulate the amount of power sent to each individual wheel. Setting options include an understeer-biased drive mode, a neutral set-up and a drift mode.

There is a carbon-ceramic braking system all round, and a newly developed battery has been developed to support all that power. Rimac also supplies a power-dense battery-system for the Koenigsegg Regera, confirming its expertise in this area.

On the inside of the two-seater hypercar is an in-house designed and built infotainment system with 4G LTE Internet connection and its own Cloud.

The limited-edition model is priced at £675,605.

Love the way it looks but I'm curious how much it weighs. My guess is more than a dump truck. And really, whats the point of a car with this kind of performance that doesn't wake the neighbors?
