You're unlikely to ever see another one on the road.
Rimac Automobili may not have many cars on the road at all, but the young Croatian automaker of electric sports cars sure knows how to make the headlines. Earlier this year, former F1 champion Nico Rosberg bought one of the upcoming C_Two hypercars, of which a mere 150 will be made.
Even rarer than this is the Rimac Concept_One, of which just seven remain in existence. And now, one of those seven cars is up for sale at Manhattan Motorcars in New York. Listed as a 2019 coupe (although production ended several years earlier), this example is going for a price of $1,600,000, excluding title, taxes, DMV, and fees.
Years after it was announced, the Concept_One's specifications are still difficult to comprehend. Despite its heft of over 4,000 pounds, it will reach 62 mph from a standstill in 2.5 seconds and go on to a claimed top speed of 220 mph. That's all thanks to the four electric motors, one at each corner, that unleash 1,224 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque. Each rear motor is paired with a two-speed dual-clutch transmission. These are phenomenal numbers for a car that was first introduced way back in 2011, although specs did improve marginally through the years as the car underwent further development.
With its 90-kWh battery pack, the Concept_One has a range in the region of 200 miles. An innovative four-wheel torque vectoring system endows the Concept_One with the dynamic ability to match its mighty powertrain.
The example for sale here is finished in Riviera Blue with a Cognac Gold interior. No other information is provided about this specific model, but the numbers speak for themselves and the sheer exclusivity helps to partially cushion the blow of that mega price tag.
With the recent and most unexpected news that Rimac will be the new owner of Bugatti, we're sure to see even greater things from this Croatian company in the future. As the brand's first experimental model, the Concept_One is a collector's item like few others and this will be one of the few opportunities to own a piece of history.
