Croatian Supercar 'Rimac Concept Two' Revealed at Geneva International Motor Show

The Rimac Concept Two has four electric motors; one for each wheel. The battery is capable of giving a range of 650 kilometres. It uses a pair of independent single-speed gearboxes to drive the front wheels and a pair of two-speed carbon-clutched gearboxes for the rear wheels. The wheels are aerodynamically designed for low drag and efficient motor cooling. The electric supercar can hit 100km/h in just 1.85 seconds, making it the quickest production vehicle ever made.

Gets to 60 miles per hour in 1.85 seconds.

"Building on the knowledge gleaned from the brilliantly powerful Rimac Concept One, the all-new C Two combines the very best materials and bespoke technology to produce something both revolutionary and eminently useable, with performance and character that elevates the genre".

Yet the Croatian electric supercar manufacturer Rimac Automobili has managed to deliver the sweeping blow - presenting in front of the unsuspecting audience their new C_2 electric hypercar, a model that's certainly in league with Tesla's new Roadster in terms of specifications that border on the unbelievable.

The vehicle gets active front hood which effectively channels air from underneath the auto up from the bonnet and on towards the roof for that additional downforce.

The vehicle has Level 4 autonomy, so it will basically be able to drive on its own but will still require a driver to be behind the wheel.

Rimac is also looking to the future, since the C_Two will be capable of Level 4 autonomous driving, and it's packed with the latest autonomous driving tech, including eight cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors, and lidar sensors. The assists work by learning the twists and turns of the track, using Global Positioning System.

Production of the Rimac C_Two is limited to around 100 units, each costing over $1.25 million. The C Two is plenty powerful too, obviously, with almost twice as many horses underneath the hood as its predecessor.
