Rimac C_Two Almost Sold Out With Buyers Spending Over $600,000 On Options!

It’s official. Rimac Automobili has defied the skeptics and become one of just a small handful of supercar startups hit the mainstream. Why? Because the brand’s C_Two hypercar has almost sold out within three weeks of its premiere.

As impressive as the Rimac Concept_One was, the fact that only eight production units were built meant the brand was still very much a niche player in the industry. However, thanks to the C_Two’s popularity, we think Rimac can now count itself alongside the likes of Koenigsegg and Pagani as one of the few hypercar firms to make a run of it.

Whereas Koenigsegg redefined performance with the international combustion engine and Pagani pushed the boundaries of craftsmanship, Rimac is leading the charge in high-performance electric cars. In fact, it supplies batteries for the Koenigsegg Regera and will create the hybrid system of the Aston Martin Valkyrie.

Rimac C_Two

Speaking at the New York Auto Show with Autocar, Rimac head of sales Kreso Coric said almost all of the 150 units planned for production have been accounted for. What’s more amazing is that the C_Two starts at $2.1 million and on average, buyers are spending over $600,000 on options.

Beyond its drop-dead gorgeous looks, the C_Two has captured the attention of enthusiasts with its insane 1,888 hp and 1696 lb-ft electric powertrain. The Croatian company claims this results in a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) time of 1.85 seconds, 0-100 mph (160 km/h) in 4.3 seconds and a 258 mph (412 km/h) top speed. Thanks to the 120 kWh battery pack, Rimac says the C_Two has a range of 404 miles (650 km) on the NEDC cycle.

The C_Two is also the first hypercar to adopt a serious level of autonomy. In fact, Rimac says that its eight cameras, a pair of LiDARs, six radar emittors, 12 ultrasonic sensors, and a precise GPS enable support for Level 4 self-driving.
