The Rimac C_Two is a hypercar from Croatia’s Rimac Automobili, unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
The manufacturer calls the Rimac C_Two an electric GT hypercar. As the name suggests, this is the second model after the Concept_One and the track version Concept_S , but the car has been designed entirely from scratch and shares no details with its predecessor. It made its world premiere at the Geneva exhibition, the highlight being the Rimac C_Two/
The Rimac C_Two is one of the most beautiful cars ever built (it also looks fantastic inside) and at the same time one of the fastest. A very important piece of information is that the component cooling system is able to ensure long-running times at maximum performance without sacrificing power – reportedly even two full laps of the Nürburgring’s North Loop.
The on-board computer includes a dedicated race track assistant which, once a track has been selected, proposes optimum driving lines, braking points, etc. The vehicle offers a wide range of driving settings, including power distribution between the axles. In addition, more than 500 driving parameters are monitored on a continuous basis, which can be viewed on a phone/computer or downloaded for later analysis.
The vehicle is said to be designed with partial driver automation in mind (Level 4) and is equipped with eight cameras, two LIDARs, six radars and 12 ultrasonic sensors. The Rimac C_Two offers a range of safety systems known from production vehicles, including emergency automatic braking, blind spot detection, lane keeping and active cruise control.
Rimac C Two specs:
- top speed – 412 km/h
- Acceleration to 100 km/h – 1.97 s
- power – 1914 hp
- specific power – 982 hp/t
- vehicle weight 1,950 kg
Rimac C Two engine:
The four-motor 4×4 traction drive with independent torque control (acceleration/deceleration) of each wheel Rimac All Wheel Torque Vectoring (R-AWTV) is responsible for excellent acceleration and a top speed of 412 km/h, which can change value depending on the situation in a split second. The total traction drive output exceeds 1.4 MW.
Rimac C Two battery:
The 1.4 MW of energy reserves must be provided by the battery pack – in the case of the Rimac C_Two, these are 21700 cylindrical batteries. The pack has a capacity of around 120 kWh and consists of 6,960 cells. Despite the powerful equipment and drive, the vehicle did not weigh more than 2 tonnes thanks to the composite and aluminium construction. The battery pack is a structural element.
Rimac C Two range:
The power reserve is sufficient for around 650 km of NEDC driving, i.e. around 450 km in real terms, and can be up to 200 km when driven very dynamically.
Rimac C Two 0 – 100:
Rimac Automobili reports that acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 1.97 seconds, but the acceleration results are taken into account “not from the start” but rather when the wheels have already taken a fraction of a turn. The actual time from 0 to 100 km/h is likely to be around 2.1 seconds, which is still an excellent result.
Rimac C Two top speed:
The top speed is 412 km/h.
Rimac C Two interior:
The Rimac C_Two can take two people and a small amount of luggage. And in the version unveiled in Geneva, there are two helmets and a fire extinguisher in the back. Inside, there are as many as six screens, including one dedicated to the passenger.
Rimac C Two price (Rimac C Two buy):
A total of 150 units are planned to be produced. The price per unit is reportedly around €1.7 million.
