A car that makes you cry tears of joy? Sign us up right now!by Tudor Rus, on LISTEN 02:23
The Rimac C_Two was supposed to make its official debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. The coronavirus, of course, had other plans, and the event got cancelled altogether, so Rimac had to postpone the launch.
It’s been a race against the clock to get the C_Two up and running for its supposed debut in March, and seeing Misha Charoudin driving the car and getting this sort of emotions from it got us thinking that Rimac might have outdone itself with the C_Two.
You don’t see a driver crying behind the wheel of a supercar every day
Misha Charoudin is a Russian car enthusiast that lived and worked at Germany’s famous Nürburgring, which helped him develop quite a hefty YouTube follower base.
Long story short, Mate Rimac thought Mr. Charoudin would be a good addition to his company so he decided to offer him a job at Rimac Automobili in Sveta Nedelja.
The answer was yes and that’s how we get to show you this video today.
In all fairness, the video shows Misha driving a C_Two prototype but mind you, the Croatian all-electric supercar is not something to play with, even in its unfinished form. Besides having to offer daily drivability around the city, the C_Two is also designed with lots of performance in mind.
For example, its active aero setup combines adjustable bits and bobs such as front/rear splitters and a rear wing to generate extra or less downforce according to the situation.
Then there’s the powertrain. 1,408 kilowatts (1,914 PS/1,888 horsepower), 2,300 Newton-meters (1,696 pound-feet) of torque, four independent permanent-magnet motors, and a 120-kWh battery pack work together towards the C_Two’s outstanding road dynamics. According to Rimac, the C_Two is good for a 0-60 mph sprint of just 1.85 seconds and a top speed of 260 mph.
It’s this sort of performance that impresses Misha Charoudin and brings him to tears (of joy) while he gives the C_Two a go on the track. And they said electric cars are soulless...
