While Tesla Roadster took the track by storm and managed an incredible standstill achieved in just 1,9 seconds a couple of days ago, another important hypercar maker that has been previously seen playing on the track race as well, is making a come back to challenge the Tesla`s supremacy in the electric segment.
Following the unveiling of the Concept One last year, Rimac`s new play toy is rumored to blow away its top competitor from the electric segment, currently held by Tesla. We are dealing here with the so called for now Concept Two, an ultimate hypercar with super-power and a new design set to make a mock of Tesla`s concept of fast hypercar.
According to Auto Guide, the all-new Rimac Concept Two will come with a much more improved battery pack and electric motor, way too advanced compared with the Concept One. According to new rumors and recent reports, we expect more than Concept One`s 1,088 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, which is absolutely fantastic.
Besides the mind-blowing power and torque, the new Rimac Concept Two is also going to be extremely aerodynamically advanced. More details will be released at a later date.
As a reminder, Rimac`s Concept One revealed last year, is fitted with no less than four electric motors, each one with its own transmission, producing a staggering 1,180 lb-ft of torque. According to CEO Mate Rimac, the hypercar is capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3.0 seconds, at a top speed of 354 km/h.
On the other hand, the “new kid on the block” from Testla, the Tesla Roadster, recently managed a sprint from standstill to 100 km/h in a mind-blowing 1.9 seconds. The Roadster concept uses a 200 kWh battery pack with mega 10,000 Nm of torque. The top speed is also rated at 400 km/h.
If Rimac delivers as promised, the new Concept Two will definitely become the thing of the present, with the Tesla Roadster becoming just dust in the wind. However, given the torque of the latter, it would be quite hard for Rimac to achieve at least the same amount of performance. Stay tuned!
