We now know when the successor to the Rimac Concept One will be revealed.
The Rimac Concept One was a game-changer when it launched last year, an all-electric supercar with 1,073-hp, 1,180 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-62 mph time of 2.6 seconds. It also nearly killed Richard Hammond in the upcoming new season of The Grand Tour. We already know it’s getting a successor, but Rimac has now confirmed when we’ll get to see it. Shown for the first time in a teaser photo shared on social media, Rimac has announced that its second game-changing electric supercar will make its world debut at next year’s Geneva Motor Show in March.
Details are scarce for now, but the image shows the supercar’s striking silhouette. Rimac promises that it will be “a true game changer.” Currently, Rimac’s second electric supercar is being referred to as the Concept Two, but that name will change when the car is revealed. Autocar reports that Rimac's next supercar will be larger and more comfortable and expensive than the Concept One, with even better performance than its frighteningly fast predecessor. It will also boast a larger range than the current model’s 205-mile range, but that probably won’t be a concern to customers - Rimac’s supercars aren’t designed to be daily drivers after all.
Despite being bigger than its predecessor, the supercar will still remain a two-seater. Rimac says the Concept Two will be positioned as a rival to Pagani, Koenigsegg and Bugatti, while production will be limited to 100 units. Only eight Concept Ones have been built so far, but Rimac is aiming to sell 20 units of its successor in the first year. Spider and track variants will follow the initial coupe in the coming years. Next year’s Geneva Motor Show runs between March 8 and 18 so let the countdown begin. No doubt Tesla will be watching with keen interest.
