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.

Tesla Roadster 2.0 vs the Rimac C Two - Did Rimac Just Beat Tesla To The Punch?

The battle for EV performance supremacy looks like it’s over before it even began

The world went gaga when Tesla dropped a surprise debut of its next-gen Roadster last November, with analysts and speed fans alike drooling over the claims made by the high-tech EV sports machine. Some of the numbers and specs seemed insane for a street-legal road car, but with an official on-sale date still several years away, there was time for the rest of the industry to catch up. Now, it looks like the Tesla just got one-upped before it could even hit the road, as Rimac dropped the C Two in Geneva with a list of numbers capable of delivering a K.O. punch to the upcoming Roadster 2.0.

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.

Rimac's Next EV to Dethrone the Tesla Roadster Before It Even Enters Production

Rimac’s Next EV to Dethrone the Tesla Roadster Before It Even Enters Production

Tired of overly fast and stupid EVs yet?

Rimac has recently told Autoguide that it’s been working on a new, next-gen supercar that is expected to debut at some point in 2018. According to Jens Sverdup of Auto Iconica – Rimac’s distribution arm here in the States – the EV has been in the works for a few years now. When you consider the fact that the Tesla Roadster isn’t heading to production until 2018, and that the new Rimac EV will likely be much more powerful than the Concept One, it’s quite possible Rimacs new EV could dethrone the outrageously powerful Roadster before it even enters production. Oh, and to top it off, Rimac is set to open five more retailers here in the States during 2018, which will – of course – carry both the Rimac Concept One and the upcoming Rimac Convertible that is yet to be named.

The FIA Wants Answers From Richard Hammond's Car Crash

The FIA Wants Answers From Richard Hammond’s Car Crash

Motorsport governing body wants to know what caused the Rimac Concept One crash

By now, you’ve probably heard that Richard Hammond was involved in a horrific crash over the weekend in Switzerland. From what’s been reported, Hammond was filming with the rest of his Grand Tour mates when he lost control of the Rimac Concept One, rolling it down a hill before landing on its roof. Hammond somehow escaped the wreckage on his own, before being helped off by Swiss paramedics. The electric supercar, however, didn’t fare quite as well as it ended up catching fire and burning to a crisp. The specific details behind the crash have yet to be revealed, which is probably why the FIA is stepping in to get some answers.

According to Motorsport, the governing body of motorsport racing is looking for answers from Auto Sport Schweiz on what caused the crash during the Hemberg Bergrennen event over the weekend. In a statement, the Swiss federation said that the FIA “has been forced to demand an opinion” from the Federation regarding the circumstances that happened before the crash and what led Hammond to losing control of the Concept One. Auto Sport Schweiz added that disciplinary proceedings could be handed down if it determines from its own investigation that certain parties failed to adhere to the safety standards put in place during the event. Obviously, there’s a lot more to this story than what’s been revealed, so while Hammond is fortunate to have survived the accident, some heads could still roll in the coming days.
