Rimac Automobili introduces the next evolution of the hypercar

The Rimac C_Two is a pure electric GT hypercar as capable on track as it is crossing continents. A car as bespoke as it is user-friendly. Configurable, personal and extremely powerful, representing what is possible when true innovation and passion is allowed free rein. Building on the knowledge gleaned from the brilliantly powerful Rimac Concept_One, the all-new C_Two combines the very best materials and bespoke technology to produce something both revolutionary and eminently useable, with performance and character that elevates the genre. There is – quite literally – no other car like it.

Top Speed: 412 km/h / 258 mph
Acceleration 0-60 mph: 1.85* seconds
Power: 1,914hp / 1,408 kW
Motor Torque: 2,300 Nm
Range: 650 km (NEDC)
Units: 150

Designed by Rimac’s in-house team and made entirely from scratch with all-new, groundbreaking technologies – the C_Two features a full carbonfibre monocoque with bonded carbon roof, integrated battery pack and merged rear carbon subframe. Crash structures are formed from aluminium, and the body itself is pure carbonfibre, with the result that it is both relatively light and exceptionally strong. Double wishbone suspension with electronically-controlled dampers and active height adjustment provide a smooth and comfortable ride, with four electric motors powering each individual wheel giving both four-wheel drive and unprecedented levels of dynamic control. And while a pair of independent single-speed gearboxes apply drive to the front wheels, a pair of independent two-speed, gearboxes – one for each rear wheel – allow the C_Two to make use of its prodigious torque to produce both mind-blowing acceleration and true hypercar top speed.

Carefully integrated into the graceful, agile form are a variety of active elements, from flaps in the hood that alter the C_Two’s aerodynamic profile, to a rear wing that adopts different positions according to dynamic loads and operates as a full air-brake to stabilise the car under heavy braking. A flat floor and active rear venturi also ensure that the C_Two is both aerodynamically efficient and stable at speed – again necessary with a car capable of such outrageous numbers. Even the lightweight forged wheels have an aerodynamic function, ensuring that the braking system is fed with cooling air while allowing smooth airflow down the flanks of the car at speed. Various cooling channels are also animate, to ensure the best possible efficiency and performance at all times.
