Not long to wait now.
Rimac rarely needs an introduction any more. The Croatian company hit the headlines last year after the Concept_One, i.e. the world’s first electric hypercar, nearly killed Richard Hammond while filming for The Grand Tour. Unfortunately, the car was completely destroyed in the accident, which meant there was now one less example of the limited-production hypercar in the world, but the automaker’s appearance on the show has done wonders for its publicity. Everyone now knows Rimac.
Anyone who’s been behind the wheel of a Concept_One will testify its mind-bending performance, so it’s hard to comprehend how Rimac can improve on this. We’ll find out next week, because Rimac will be revealing its highly-anticipated successor to the Concept_One at the Geneva Motor Show, which promises to be a true game-changer in the hypercar scene. So far, Rimac has released a few shadowy teaser images and videos of the upcoming hypercar EV, but this new teaser trailer posted on Facebook is much more revealing. Granted, the car shown is CGI, but it still gives us a clearer idea of what the Concept_Two (its tentative title until an official name is confirmed) will look like.
We get a clear shot of the front-end, showing that the design will be an evolution of the Concept_One. The front lip is more prominent and there's also a larger grille, giving the car a more aggressive appearance compared to the Concept_One. It also has wider hips and an active rear spoiler. Details are still scarce, but reports suggest the Concept_Two will have a better range than its 210-mile predecessor, and will be larger, more comfortable, and more expensive. Production will be limited to 100 units. The Concept_One produces 1,073-hp, 1,180 lb-ft of torque, and can hit 0-62 mph 2.6 seconds, so we can’t wait to see if its successor can beat the Tesla Roadster's new benchmark.
