• Rimac C Two California Edition Pops the Champagne In Monterey

No kidding, it has champagne in the trunk!

Unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the spectacular Rimac C-Two received the special-edition treatment for the Monterey Car Week in California. Dubbed California Edition — what else, huh? — the supercar is actually identical to the version we saw four months ago save for the attention-grabbing blue exterior and a revised trunk.

The car was "reimagined to tally with the vibrant Californian scene."

According to the Croatian firm, the car was "reimagined to tally with the vibrant Californian scene." It sounds fancy, but there’s only one modification to talk about. The trunk has been redesigned to fit two champagne bottles and a bunch of crystal flutes. How very Rolls-Royce of Rimac!

Oh, it also has "captivating" trim of which we don’t know much right now and a new five-spoke wheel design that’s really exciting to look. But overall, it’s the same car with fizzy alcohol under the hood.

Overall, it's the same car with fizzy alcohol under the hood.

That’s not to say that the C_Two is boring. Developed as a replacement for the Concept_One, it’s a significant improvement over its predecessor and packs four motors that deliver an impressive 1,914 horsepower and 1,696 pound-feet of torque. More impressively, Rimac claims it will be able to hit 60 mph from a standing start in just 1.85 seconds. Holy moly!

Rimac wants to build 150 units and all were sold in less than a week since the C_Two was shown to the public. Despite the $2 million price tag!

And what better stage to shine on than the iconic Petersen Automotive Museum, one of the greatest automotive museums with one of the world’s finest car collections, blending the important past and the exciting future.

Featuring captivating color and trim and new wheels design, the C_Two was reimagined to tally with the vibrant Californian scene. Rounding it all up, the new luxurious trunk represents the crown of this creative effort.

Moreover, it suggests an excellent opportunity to enjoy a glass of champagne in the company of Rimac guests and hypercar enthusiasts.

Over the course of the Monterey Car Week, Rimac will host private previews at its estate, until joining the motorsport enthusiasts and car collectors on the rolling greens of The Quail – A Motorsport Gathering on Friday 24 August. The following day, Saturday 25 August, everyone will head to Exotics on Cannery Row, the most anticipated event of the week where some of the rarest supercars in the world will be displayed against the sweeping background of thousands of automotive fans.
