Rimac Concept_One

Rimac Automobili is a young company which develops and produces high performance electric vehicles, drive trains and battery system.
The 2011 Rimac Concept_One appears to its enthusiasts an as exceptional supercar featuring a new propulsion concept, boasting a curb weight of 1,650 kg and 1088 HP, which make it cover the 0-100 km/h sprint in only 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 305 km/h. Its powertrain is unique and divided into four sub-systems, each integrating one motor, inverter and reduction gearbox. Working independently one from the other, each of these systems drives one wheel and it is called All Wheel Torque, a new great approach to vehicle dynamics. Mate Rimac, the CEO of Rimac Automobili, announced that the electric motor was a much better machine compared to the ICE, in all aspects, especially for a sports car. Adriano Mudri designed the carbon-fibre body by exploring the labyrinth of creativity, resulting in a simple and clear look, featuring a sporty elegance that catches up with its competitors in this exclusivity class. A team of former Pininfarina employees designed the interior, which is both appealing and pleasant as special attention was given to the soft-close doors, gadgets like head-up-displays and the infotainment system, matching the propulsion technology in its advancement. The production of the first model, the Concept_One, is limited to 88 units, starting with deliveries in 2013.
