Rimac Automobili has released a video of its Concept One “supercar.” The Concept One, which made its debut in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, may be the most powerful EV yet built. Its creators, an elite team of engineers and designers in Croatia, claim that it packs 1088 hp, and can do 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds. A 92kWh battery pack gives a top speed of 305 km/h and 600 km of range.
CEO Mate Rimac: “I believe that the electric motor is a much better machine compared to the ICE, in almost all aspects, especially for a sports car.”
The unique powertrain arrangement features a separate motor, inverter and reduction gearbox for each wheel. With a striking carbon-fiber body, a luxurious leather-and-wood interior, a heads-up display and other high-tech gadgets, this automobile is obviously for the well-bucked connoisseur. Rimac plans to produce 88 units, with deliveries starting in 2013.
