Rimac C Two electric hypercar shocks Geneva with 1914 horsepower

How fast? With 1,914-horsepower coming from four electric motors, the C Two can get to 60 miles per hour in 1.85 seconds to edge out the new Tesla Roadster's 1.9-second claim and reach a top speed of 258 miles per hour. The motors powered by a 120kWh Lithium-Magnesium-Nickel battery pack. The rear wheels are offered with a two speed gearbox, while the front gets a single speed gearbox. The battery is capable of giving a range of 650 kilometres.

If you want to read all about this incredible vehicle, go here. Such claims put it on a collision course with the new Tesla Roadster, said to charge from 0-60 in 1.9 seconds.

The vehicle is rated at 1,914 horsepower. The top speed of the Rimac Concept Two stands at 412km/h.

The vehicle gets active front hood which effectively channels air from underneath the auto up from the bonnet and on towards the roof for that additional downforce.

The C_Two is also equipped with an advanced torque-vectoring unit.

In addition to all this, the Rimac C_Two is a Level 4 Autonomous auto. Tracks can be loaded into the onboard computer to provide coaching on the racing line, braking, turn-in and acceleration points. To aid in that, it has eight cameras, a lidar, six radars, and twelve ultrasonic sensors. The auto can also monitor weather and road conditions to automatically adjust suspension and all-wheel drive performance accordingly. Rimac is only expected to produce 100 of these supercharged cars, estimated to sell for just over a million euros each.

The interior is minimalist yet features a luxurious trim combination of carbonfibre and suede, reflecting Rimac's goal of creating a luxurious grand tourer it says is "in league with Pagani, Koenigsegg and Bugatti".
