The driver has already turned himself in to the police.
Since the Rimac Nevera was revealed this week, new videos have emerged demonstrating the electric hypercar's otherworldly performance. On a stretch of runway, the Nevera set an unofficial quarter-mile record with a time of 8.62 seconds at 171.7 mph and made the Ferrari SF90 Stradale look slow in the process. On a public road, however, owners will still need to drive the Nevera responsively and obey traffic laws. But this man found it difficult to resist putting his foot down.
Video footage shows the Nevera speeding along a narrow mountain road at 144 mph while narrowly avoiding traffic at 88 mph over the speed limit. Clearly, this was very dangerous as the driver put other people's lives at risk.
It's not known if the man was an official test driver for Rimac, but he is clearly wearing Rimac-branded clothing. According to Rimac's founder and CEO Mate Rimac, the driver has already called the police and turned himself in.
The Nevera isn't on sale yet, but Rimac invited potential buyers to take the electric hypercar for a spin at the Sun Gardens Resort in Dubrovnik, Croatia. "Our attitude is clear: we inform all customers, guests, and employees that driving is happening on public roads and that they must follow the law," Rimac's founder and CEO Mate Rimac wrote in a statement posted on Facebook
"The driver from the video called the police himself. The police came and conducted an interview and he will be punished as anyone else would be punished in this situation. For other rides, we will be better careful and supervising. I apologize for the inconvenience."
If you want to test the Rimac Nevera's performance, stick to the race track. If you need a refresher, the Rimac Nevera is powered by four electric motors producing a combined 1,914 horsepower and 1,740 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 0-60 mph in just 1.85 seconds before maxing out at 258 mph.
