Rimac may be a brand new entry in the supercar segment but the Croatian startup is sure aiming for the top – at least when it comes to power and pricing.
Following the world premiere of its first creation named the Concept_One at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, Rimac displayed the electric-powered coupe at Top Marques Monaco where it announced pricing.
The Croatian company plans to build 88 examples of the Concept_One, each carrying a base price of €750,000 or about US$990,000 at today’s exchange rates.
While other competitors in this price range go for gasoline-powered engines, Rimac fitted the Concept_One with a complex electric driveline that includes four sub-systems, each consisting of one motor, inverter and reduction gearbox. Each of the four systems powers a wheel. The electric powetrain’s combined output is 1,073hp (1,088PS) and 1,600Nm (1,180 lb-ft).
Rimac says that the Concept_One tips the scales at 1,650 kilos (3,638 lbs) and can reach 100 km/h (62mph) from a standstill in 2.8 seconds while topping out at 305 km/h (190mph). According to the company, the 92kWh battery provides a driving range of up to 600 kilometers (373 miles).
The Concept_One’s carbon-fibre body was designed by Adriano Mudri while the interior is the work of a team of former Pininfarina employees, led by Goran Popović, with Bulgarian design studio Vilner offering a helping hand.
