SUNDAY SUPERCAR: RIMAC C_TWO ELECTRIC HYPERCAR
Don't miss the unbelievably fast Rimac C_Two electric hypercar that will make its first visit to North America for the New York Auto Show. This stunning sports car offers a combined 1,888 horsepower and 1696lb-ft of torque from its electric motors. The result of all this power is a 0-60mph time of just 1.85 seconds and a top speed of 258mph.
Designed by Rimac's in-house team and made entirely from scratch with all-new technologies - the C_Two features a full carbonfibre monocoque with bonded carbon roof, integrated battery pack and merged rear carbon subframe. Crash structures are formed from aluminium, and the body itself is pure carbonfibre, with the result that it is both relatively light and exceptionally strong. Double wishbone suspension with electronically-controlled dampers and active height adjustment provide a smooth and comfortable ride, with four electric motors powering each individual wheel giving both four-wheel drive and unprecedented levels of dynamic control. And while a pair of independent single-speed gearboxes apply drive to the front wheels, a pair of independent two-speed, gearboxes - one for each rear wheel - allow the C_Two to make use of its prodigious torque to produce both mind-blowing acceleration and true hypercar top speed.
