How fast is too fast? Well, with changing times, records are just meant to be broken. Rimac Automobili have revealed their second electric hypercar dubbed as the C_Two at the Geneva Motor Show. The new C_Two is significantly more powerful than its predecessor.
Powering the C_Two are electric motors producing 1,914 PS of power and 2,300 Nm of torque. Mind numbing figures eh? The Rimac C_Two can sprint from 0-60 mph in 1.85 seconds, and 0-100 mph (0-160 kmph) in 4.3 seconds. The C_Two will have a top speed of 258 mph (412 kmph). The previous record was announced by Tesla for their new roadster which would sprint from 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds.
Another astonishing feature is the driving range. Rimac claims that the C_Two can be driver for 404 miles (650 km) on a single charge.
For the Rimac C_Two, each wheel is powered by an independent electric motor. The car makes use of a single-speed gearbox on the front and has a pair of 2-speed gearboxes for the rear. Along with torque vectoring, the Rimac C_Two propels the car with the help of AWD, which is necessary with this much power. The 120 kWh battery pack comes with liquid-cooling for thermal management.
The C_Two will also come with autonomous driving, radar connectivity, 8 on-board cameras, artificial intelligence and much more.
Rimac will start producing the C_Two from later this year, and will have only 150 units to offer.
