Rimac C_Two Hypercar Promises To Make You Feel Sick With A 0-60 In 1.85 Seconds

Rimac Automobili revealed its second electric hypercar at the Geneva Motor Show, and its name is C_Two.

As promised by the Croatian manufacturer, the C_Two is significantly more powerful than its predecessor as it offers a combined 1,888hp (1,914PS) and 1696lb-ft (2,300Nm) of torque from its electric motors.

The result of all this insane power is a 0-60mph in a breathtaking 1.85 seconds, a 0-100mph in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 258mph (412km/h). We guess the fact that Tesla announced a 0-60 time of 1.9 seconds for the upcoming Roadster has something to do about that 1.85-second figure.

As with the Concept One, each wheel of the C_Two is powered by its own motor, with Rimac using a set of single-speed gearboxes on the front and a set of two-speed gearboxes at the rear.

The four motors work together via all-wheel torque vectoring. The whole drivetrain is fully configurable, offering everything from shutting down any of the two axles to a perfect 50-50 split.

Feeding the motors is a huge 120kWh battery pack that features a liquid-cooled thermal management system, which keeps the temperatures down on fast-driving conditions such as track usage. Rimac claims a total driving range of 404 miles (650km) on the NEDC cycle.

The new electric hypercar also features eight on-board cameras, a pair of LIDAR, six radar emitters, a dozen of ultrasonic sensors and an “exceptionally precise” GPS, with Rimac saying that the C_Two is Level-4 autonomous ready. Artificial intelligence is also present, with the car using facial recognition cameras to unlock and start without a key, and more.

Production of the C_Two will start later this year, with Rimac planning to build just 150 examples. And just take a look on that fire extinguisher.

  • That Ross Chap

    The back is completely stolen from the i8, and overall it looks a lot worse than the original car, but that performance is utterly insane.

    • Bo Hanan

      I wondered whether it was based on the i8, which is an ugly car.

    • PK

    Extinguisher is hilarious! Humour is Elon Musk-esque’

  • 1.85 SEC. TO 60 AND LEVEL 4 AUTONOMOUS PROBABLY WOULD MAKE YOU CAR SICK. ODD COMBINATION OF TECH.

  • Six Thousand Times

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    • Why? Because your God Clarkson don’t like it?

  • Eagle By Singer

    I wonder who they could be competing with?

    • Tesla Roadster… although the price point is quite different.

      But in terms of Hypercar, Koenigsegg, Pagani and etc.

  • Mynameis Taylor

    looks like BMW i8 and Corvette had a baby

  • the design looks toned down versus the concept one. not a looker.

  • Bash

    That’s insane!

  • Axiom Ethos

    Acceleration is merely on par with the new Roadsters conservative specs on their prototype base model. While looking way too busy and compartmentalized than the orginal C1.

  • Robot chicken Corvette from a very unfortunately designed future? definitely. This car is absolutely revolting. It looks plasticky and over designed. I expected so much better from the people who penned the Concept_One

  • Infinite1

    1,888 HP!!! Step aside Bugatti. The rear end looks like a cross between the i8 and the Sting Ray which isn’t a bad thing and it’s a good looking car to me. Wheels reminds me of the DeLorean for some reason
