Rimac will at Monterey Car Week with a new special California Edition C_Two to wow assembled motoring fans.
We got our first look at the Rimac C_Two when it unveiled at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. What the Croatian electric carmaker claimed to have achieved in the C_Two was nothing short of a revolution in electric car design.
An electric motor on each wheel combines to produce 1,914 hp. Zero to sixty was claimed to be at 1.85 seconds. Top speed a world-leading (for an electric car) 258 mph. Only 150 cars will be made with each one priced at $1.2 million.
What was even more amazing was the range. From a 120 kWh battery pack, the Rimac C_Two could go for 404 miles on a single charge. Recharging can take as little as 30 minutes depending on the type of charger being used.
Rimac also claimed that the C_Two achieved Level 4 autonomy thanks to an advanced artificial intelligence and a suite of sensors that included 2 lidars, 6 radars, and 12 ultrasonic sensors. Basically, this car can drive itself and only has a wheel to make the driver feel important.
Of course, none of these claims have yet to be independently proven. These could just be aspirational statements from a hitherto unknown boutique car manufacturer. But you have to admit: the C_Two certainly looks cool.
Last weekend, the C_Two made its American debut by being showcased at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California. The “California Edition” C_Two features a Mexican Blue paint job and a specially customized rear compartment designed to fit two wine bottles and two wine glasses--presumably a nod to California’s famous wine industry.
These bespoke modifications will be right at home at Monterey Car Week, where the C_Two will be showcased again at The Quail - A Motorsport Gathering on Friday, August 24th. The next day, Rimac will take their electric hypercar to Exotics on Cannery Row.
After that, maybe Rimac will deign to prove some of their numbers. That’d be nice.
