Still want one? You're in luck.
The Rimac C_Two was officially unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show as a near production-ready concept. The production-spec version was rumored to debut last March but ultimately didn't happen because the Swiss show was canceled. Not long after the concept's debut, a now-debunked report claimed all planned 150 production examples were sold out.
A few days ago, the Croatian carmaker's CEO and founder Mate Rimac went on record to further clarify the situation. In a lengthy Facebook post, which you can read in its entirety below, he re-confirmed the C_Two isn't entirely sold out. Just the first year's allocation.
"What I can say is that we are sold-out for at least the first year of production, which was our initial goal - that sales is always at least 12 months ahead of production," he wrote. "While it is not unusual for hypercars to be sold-out before they go into production, that is usually only the case for established brands, like Ferrari."
Rimac says he's not concerned whether all 150 examples will find owners. The production-ready version will be revealed "soon" as well as its final name. The name C_Two only refers to the concept version. Until that reveal takes place, Rimac is keeping plenty busy. It is currently building three marketing/sales cars that'll be used in unveiling events (a global tour is planned despite the pandemic), media test drives, and customer demos.
Rimac's team continues to conduct tests and further refinements in order to avoid any troublesome issues once the C_Twos hit the road. The CEO also states prospective customers have been approaching Rimac directly, but if they're truly interested they need to seek out one of the 14 dealers representing Rimac globally. The car is only considered "sold" once one of those dealers places an order.
However, this doesn't necessarily mean the dealer has found a buyer; it could also be selling a build slot. If that's the case, it's still possible for buyers to get a low VIN number and, therefore, early delivery.
