The electric sports car Rimac Nevera was able to accelerate to 100 km/h in a record time of 1.82 seconds

Founded in Croatia in 2009, Rimac Automobili has managed not only to become a technology partner and shareholder of Bugatti, but also to update 23 world records in one day with its electric hypercar Nevera. In particular, the car has demonstrated the ability to accelerate to 100 km/h in 1.82 seconds and then come to a standstill with a braking distance of less than 30 metres.

Rimac for her record race used the ATP track in Papenburg, Germany, which has a suitable 4-kilometre straight. Racelogic and Dewesoft representatives were invited to register records. Although there are discrepancies in the results of their measurements, they do not exceed hundredths of a second. Rimac Nevera breaks the traditional 100 km/h speed limit in a record time of 1.82 seconds, and then it takes another 2.01 seconds and 29.12 meters braking distance to come to a complete stop.

The Croatian hypercar accelerates to 200 km/h in 4.42 seconds, accelerates to the next “hundreds” in 9.23 seconds and overcomes the 400 km/h mark in 21.32 seconds. The “transition” results also became records: the car accelerates from 100 to 200 km/h in 2.59 seconds, for acceleration from 200 to 300 km/h it takes 4.81 seconds, from 200 to 250 km/h h, however, the acceleration takes exactly two seconds. The hypercar took 29.93 seconds to reach a speed of 400 km/h and then came to a complete stop, beating the closest competitor by more than a second.

At the same time, as the creators emphasize, the Rimac Nevera remains a relatively practical vehicle for a hypercar. Its range of 480 km can be restored from zero to 80% in about 20 minutes at fast charging stations. With 23 world records set, the Rimac Nevera is considered the fastest series-produced electric car. True, the circulation of the car will not exceed 150 copies, and the owners will be able to realize the full potential of the hypercar only with special training and access to closed circuits. The records on the track in Germany were set, as intended, with Michelin Cup 2 R tires approved for public road use, and the asphalt surface of the track was not specially prepared.

The Rimac Nevera hardware platform uses mostly proprietary components. The power plant with a total capacity of 1914 hp includes four independent electric motors, which together provide a torque of 2360 Nm. The car can reach a speed of 412 km/h and is equipped with a traction battery with a capacity of 120 kWh. The control system is based on the NVIDIA Pegasus platform. It is estimated that each of the 150 Rimac Neveras will cost owners at least $2.4 million.
