Shortly after its world debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the all-new Rimac C_Two was imagined as an open-top.
The renderings are the work of Aksyonov Nikita and they pretty much speak for themselves: it’s a C_Two with a targa-style removable top.
In the past, chopping off the roof of the C_Two would require some chassis stiffening, which in turn leads to an increased weight that would affect its performance and range. This, however, is supposed to be a targa, and with modern hypercars already having a very stiff chassis, reinforcements are no longer necessary in many of them.
Renderings aside, Rimac is getting ready to commence production of the C_Two. Assembly will take place at the same facility that was in charge of putting together the Concept One, and it will be a limited run of just 150 units.
The official specs talk about a massive 1,888hp (1,914PS) and 1,696lb-ft (2,300Nm) of torque developed by its electric powertrain. Naught to 60mph (0-96km/h) is an incredible 1.85 seconds, which is a match for superbikes – or the upcoming Tesla Roadster, and top speed is 258 mph (412 km/h).
Rimac’s all-new C_Two uses a large 120kWh battery pack that provides the necessary juice for a total driving range of up to 404 miles (650 km) on the NEDC cycle, so in the real world, users should expect probably around 300+ miles (~500 km), depending on how often they exploit the electric hypercar’s amazing performance.
