The Rimac C Two Shows Off New Livery at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show

The Rimac C Two Shows Off New Livery at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show

The Rimac C_Two offers more performance than ever but has been overshadowed by the Pininfarina Battista

Rimac, the crazy Croatian company behind the world’s most powerful EV, arrived in Geneva with a different C_Two than the grey one shown last year when the model was officially released. This time, we got to see how well white covers the curves of the 1,914 horsepower hypercar and, to put it shortly, it looks amazing.

Rimac shook the supercar establishment when it launched the C_One (or Concept One) seven years ago at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Now, one year after the world premiere of the ludicrous C_Two, we get more info on the automaker’s progress with the car that’s not out on the road yet although it’s already been sold out despite costing $2.09 million and many expecting owners forking out an extra $600,000 on options.

Porsche Buys Into the Most Unexpected Automaker and it Could Help Improve its Electrification Strategy

Both automakers could leverage each other specializations to create the electric cars of the future

Proving that it has established itself as a legitimate company in the auto industry, Rimac Automobili has sold 10 percent of the company to Porsche. Details of the German automaker’s investment in the Croatian electric supercar brand and technology company have yet to be specified, but the writing on the tea leaves point to it revolving around electrification, specifically with high-voltage battery technology and electric powertrains.

Richard Hammond’s Accident Helped Rimac Sell Three Cars The Exact Same Day

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade

It’s been almost a year since The Grand Tour’s Richard Hammond barely escaped with his life after crashing a Rimac Concept One. It was a tumultuous one for a lot of people, but apparently, the crash turned out to be a blessing of sorts for Rimac. Despite losing one of its $2.1 million machines because of the crash, the accident, and the subsequent media exposure it received, helped the company sell three units that same day.

The Rimac C Two Is An Electron-Powered Destroyer Of Internal Combustion

Over 1,900 horsepower, 0 to 60 mph in less than 2 seconds

In the war between new-school electric power and old-school gas burners, the battery camp just got one very heavy-hitting new recruit.

Rumor: The Geneva-Bound Rimac Concept Two Will Get a 120-kWh Battery, Level 4 Autonomy

Rumor: The Geneva-Bound Rimac Concept Two Will Get a 120-kWh Battery, Level 4 Autonomy

Insane power is a given, but self-driving capability as well?

Rimac has made a name for itself as the go-to manufacturer for over-the-top all-electric performance, all thanks to its insane Concept One mega machine. Now it looks like the Croatian brand is once again stepping up its game with a second-generation supercar, and rumor has it’ll get juiced by an upgraded 120-kWh battery. Not only that, but it’s possible the coupe will come with highly advanced Level 4 autonomous capability as well.

2019 Rimac C Two

2019 Rimac C Two

The next generation of insane electric performance to take on the Tesla Roadster 2.0

At this point, it’s impossible to deny Rimac’s presence among the fastest of the fast in the automotive world. The Croatian brand first made a splash back in 2013 when it released its very first production vehicle – the Concept One. By 2014, all eight units of the limited production run were sold. In 2015, Rimac brought its EV speed slab to Colorado with the intention of competing in the very difficult Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, managing to take home a second-place trophy in the process. More recently, the Rimac has been featured as the upstart challenger lined up to take out more traditional street-legal internal combustion-powered supercars, and so far, its triumphed every time. Then there was that time Richard Hammond wadded one into a tight ball of flaming metal in a hill climb contest. The point is this – in the five or so years its been on the market, the Rimac Concept One has been making waves, and it has now established itself as the go-to for superlative all-electric performance. As you might expect, Tesla isn’t having it. In November of 2017, the California brand unveiled its own supercar killer – the Roadster 2.0, claiming such astronomical specs as 1.9 seconds in the 0-to-60 mph test and 10,000 Nm (7,376 pound-feet) of torque. Thing is, Tesla is gonna need to hurry up and get the next Roadster on the road, because Rimac already has an answer. Dubbed the “Concept Two” (Rimac is expected to give it a “real” name soon), this next-gen EV monster will take battery performance to a whole new level, with ever-higher four-figure output numbers and a 0-to-60 mph that looks to break into the high 1-second range, not to mention highly advanced self-driving tech.

The Rimac Concept Two promises to be a game changer in just about every way, and might have the Tesla Roadster 2.0 beat before it can even rolls off the production line. We should know more when Rimac drops the details at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show next week, but until then, read on for our full speculative review.

Update 3/12/2019:We’ve updated this review of the 2019 Rimac C_Two with fresh images taken during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of this page!

Rimac Teases its New Hypercar for Geneva; Say’s it’s "Alive with Technology"

It could have 1,500 horsepower AND Level 4 self-driving capability

We know that Rimac is presenting a new supercar at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. We know very little beyond that, but the Croatian automaker is giving us a new glimpse of what we can expect courtesy of a short teaser video. The video lasts all of nine seconds, but it was more than enough for us to see sections of the supercar that we weren’t privy to in the past. In so many words, holy smokes.

An all-electric turned up to 11… again

Between destroying the conventional lineup of supercars in various acceleration tests and, uh, being destroyed by Richard Hammond in a fiery hill climb crash, the Rimac Concept One has garnered huge attention for itself over the past few years. Now, Rimac Autombili is once again gearing up for a flurry of attention, as the Croatian brand just dropped a new teaser for its second-gen ground-bound spaceship.

Richard Hammond Kills the Lamborghini Aventador and Acura NSX with the Rimac One

Richard Hammond Kills the Lamborghini Aventador and Acura NSX with the Rimac One

It was a full on slaughter

The second season of The Grand Tour is now underway. If you didn’t get to watch the first episode, you missed one hell of a beatdown. Administering the walloping was none other than the Rimac Concept One. The recipients? The Lamborghini Aventador S and the Honda NSX. If you haven’t seen the video, here’s your chance to watch it and see just how inexplicably fast the Croation electric hypercar really is. But if you’re a fan of either the Aventador or the NSX, you might want to turn away now. It doesn’t end well for both supercars.

Rimac Teases New Hypercar; Calls it a "Game Changer"

Rimac Teases New Hypercar; Calls it a "Game Changer"

The waiting game starts for the successor of the Concept_One hypercar

Despite being limited to just eight units, the Rimac Concept_One electric supercar served notice to the industry. It has 1,224 horsepower on tap, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 220 mph. Those are numbers that electric supercar dreams are made of, but they may pale in comparison to what Rimac is planning to serve up next. We still don’t know anything about the automaker’s plans, but it does involve a new hypercar that will make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Is it really possible for Rimac to build off the success of the Concept_One with a better model? We’ll find out soon enough.

Rimac Is Coming For Seconds With Infusion Of Investment Money

Rimac Is Coming For Seconds With Infusion Of Investment Money

A new electric supercar is on the way!

Of all the ambitious start-ups that promised machines of mayhem, few have actually been able to step up and keep up with the rest of business. One of those companies is Rimac, the creator of the Concept One electric supercar that made headlines recently when The Grand Tour presenter Richard Hammond crashed one in Switzerland. It was an ignominious end to one of only eight road-going Concept One models, but all’s not lost in the world of Rimac after the company announced a new $36 million investment that would allow it to finally expand its lineup beyond the vaunted Concept One.

The infusion of money came from Camel Group, a Shanghai-based company that’s regarded as the largest manufacturer of batteries in all of Asia. The specific details of the deal were not mentioned by either company, but the deal is termed as a subscription agreement, which essentially means that Rimac likely agreed to sell a certain number of shares to Camel Group in exchange for a specific amount ($36 million as it turns out) that the Chinese company has agreed to pay. Of that amount, Rimac is expected to gain a majority of the funds, but not all of it. Roughly $3.6 million of the amount will be sent over to Greyp electric bicycle company. As far as what Rimac plans to do with the new funds, no less than Mate Rimac, the founder of both Rimac and Greyp, made the company’s plans clear: build a new electric supercar to succeed the Concept One.
