Rimac unveils an all-electric hypercar Concept Two at the Geneva Motor Show today. Built as a follow-up to the old Rimac Concept One, the Concept Two beats the previous model by nearly a full second.
Rimac claims the new version has a 1,914-horsepower engine and 1,696 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels that enable 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 1.85 seconds. The Concept One delivers 1,073 horsepower from its four electric motors so the new version provides double horsepower.
The Concept Two has the top speed of 258 mph. Facial recognition technology will both unlock and start the car, reducing our current moment of technology and hype.
There are high-intensity LED lights at front and back in which 58 individual LEDs and their own ventilation system are integrated.
Rimac says that the Concept Two has Level 4 autonomous capabilities. The sensor suite comes with one or two LIDAR, six radar, a partridge in a pear tree, eight cameras, and 12 ultrasonic sensors. It also offers automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane keeping assist.
It boasts active aerodynamics in the front and rear diffusers, a rear wing, underbody panels to improve downforce, and hood flaps. The new model gets styling from the Concept One, but it is more aggressive, evasion control, and blind-spot monitoring.
The company has not yet mentioned the cost of the C Two, but we can expect in seven-figures. The automaker will build 150 copies of the Concept Two.
While travelling on road, you can load up the onboard “Driving Coach,” that will enable you, hitting those breaking points, managing part of the steering inputs, and nailing the racing line.
