The amazing Croatian hyper car Rimac Concept One will make its UK debut at this year’s Salon Prive supercar event 5th to 7th September at London’s Syon Park. The Rimac is kinda of like Pagani when they first started business. Nobody has heard of them, but they have made an astonishing car and they are here to stay.
The Rimac One is limited to only 88 units, each priced at $1 million. The reason it costs so much, apart form the hyper car looks shaped by Pininfarina designers and a super-lux interior made by Vilner, is the powertrain it’s got.
The Rimac is an all-electric car with four motors. All four systems can operate independently and accelerate and decelerate hundreds of times per second. Rimac labels this as All-Wheel Torque Vectoring (AWTV). The total output of this system is 1,088 bhp. The 1850 kg super car can do 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. It also has the ability to reach a top speed of 190 mph and has a range of 373 miles.
24-year-old Croatian Rimac Automobili CEO, Mate Rimac, said: ‘We started with a blank sheet of paper. The idea was to create an exceptional supercar with a new propulsion concept. What we have here is a fully-fledged hypercar that is as powerful as a Bugatti, as stylish as a Ferrari, and as luxurious as a Mercedes, all while managing to forsake even the tiniest sip of gasoline.’
David Bagley, Sales Director of Salon Privé said: ‘We are extremely pleased that the Rimac Concept_One will be making its UK debut at Salon Privé this year. This EV supercar is a true representation of innovation in the electric sector, and Salon Privé provides the ideal showcase for the car to be exposed to the UK market for the first time.’
