The all-electric Rimac C_Two is nearing production and is location to be the fastest production car on the road. Within the latest YouTube video from founder Mate Rimac, he shows off the present abilities of the C_Two and says there’s calm extra to come back in the case of performance.
On a dusty unused road, Mate gave the fat beans and had a draggy riding shotgun to capture the data from the accelerate and demonstrate factual how rapid their upcoming car can be.
The Rimac C_Two features 4x liquid-cooled permanent magnet synchronous electric motors, powered by a 120 kWh Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide battery which combine to assure a comely 1,408kW of strength output. It’s expected the car will offer around 650km of range beneath normal circumstances.
Now for the instances. The Rimac C_Two achieved:
- 60 – 1.62s
- 0-60mph – 2.45s
- 60-130mph – 3.39s
- 0-130mph – 5.85s
- 1000feet – 7.56s @ 153.83mph
- 1/4 mile – 8.94s @ 159.21mph.
At some stage in a single in all the runs, the Rimac C_Two lines up against a Porsche Taycan and literally leaves it within the mud. The Taycan is now not any longer a sluggish car, however compared to the Rimac, it almost seems to be savor it’s standing calm.
That quarter mile time is ultra impressive, especially given the present fastest production car, the Bugatti Chiron covers the same distance in 9.11 seconds. There is another upcoming car that can be even faster, which also happens to be electric (are we seeing a notify yet?). The 2022 Tesla Roadster has ‘base specs’ that has it racing via the 1/4 mile in factual 8.8 seconds.
With Rimac and the Roadster each yet to hit production, it’s now a race to survey which can hit the market first. What’s crazy is the C_Two is rumored to be rate US$2.1 Million and is obtainable out of its restricted production accelerate after unveiling the car back in 2018.
A founder’s series Tesla Roadster costs factual US$250,000 an insane bargain and extra than 8 instances cheaper, over the Rimac, alternatively I think the C_Two may hit the road first.
As Mate breaks down the timed runs, he geeks out on the data and shows off an unreleased app they train internally to analyse the performance of the automobile. While there’s a number of charts exhibiting the vitality output of the battery, personally it was the 3D visualisation on top of a Google Map that was the most fascinating.
Rimac are able to area the accelerate on the map, however then undertaking vertically the amount of vitality outputted however the car, all colored to narrate how the kW’s are deployed. This extra or much less automobile telemetry is obviously precious for the advance of the car, however would also be a dream for enthusiasts who take their car to a track.
