The Croatian hypercar manufacturer, Rimac Automobili has created one devil of a car! The C_Two concept unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show has evolved into a production-ready electric hypercar named Nevera, and it still remains as wacky as it was three years ago!
The name is a tribute to a storm that whips up unexpectedly off the Mediterranean and can strike the Croatian coast, a Nevera is extremely powerful and is charged by lightning. Priced at €2 Million, the Rimac Nevera will compete with the Lotus Evija and the imminent Pininfarina Battista.
The two-seater hyper car gives an outrageous power output of 1,914hp and 2360 Nm of torque. The car’s framework incorporates a 6,960-cell, 120 kWh Lithium/Manganese/Nickel battery pack in an ‘H’ shape along the spine, behind the cockpit, very low into the structure and contributes to the low centre of gravity and giving the Nevera a 48:52 weight distribution. There are four surface-mounted permanent magnet motors that drive each wheel individually. The front and rear wheels are each connected to a pair of single-speed gearboxes. The Nevera has a range of 547 km (WLTP) and if plugged in to a 500-kW charger, it takes 19 minutes to go from 0 to 80%. It has the ability to sprint to 100kmph in 1.97 seconds and continues the acceleration all the way to a 412 kmph top speed, accelerating from rest to 300kmph in 9.3 seconds, making it marginally faster than a contemporary F1 car.
Rimac’s All-Wheel Torque Vectoring 2 (R-AWTV 2) system replaced their traditional electronic stability program and traction control systems to further strengthen grip and traction. The R-AWTV 2 system is said to make over 100 calculations per seconds to tailor the level of torque to achieve the desired driving style. The Nevera is also equipped with cutting-edge braking technology that uses a complex electro-hydraulic brake booster with brake pedal feel simulator to distribute the braking force between the friction brakes and electric powertrain, depending on the battery, powertrain and brake state.
With space for two occupants and their luggage, Nevera is as much a capable grand tourer as it is a performance hypercar. The toggles and switches are fitted in the digital screens, which leaves only essential tactile controls, giving more space to enjoy the ergonomically designed interior. The cockpit features three HD TFT screens, which show as much, or as little, information as the driver needs, designed for both track driving and comfort, the layout of the cockpit is divided into two zones. The focus of the top segment is on driving pleasure and performance, while the lower part is placed with the infotainment system, comfort controls and driving data.
This strikingly wicked electric hypercar is limited to only 150 units worldwide.
If the God of Thunder, Thor, was a car, this would be it. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
