Rimac Automobili will launch its sensational Rimac C_Two at Salon Privé in September.

In less than 10 years, Rimac Automobili, based in Croatia, has become a technoloigcal powerhouse not only creating its own spectacular hypercars, but also developing full technology solutions for global automotive manufacaturers such as Aston Martin, Automobili Pininfarina, Koenigsegg, Porsche and many more.

Porsche AG and Hyundai Motor Group have also become minority shareholders in the last two years.

The all-new Rimac C_Two is a testament to the company’s tehcnological advancements.

Engineered as a pure electric GT and using the expert knowledge gleaned from the brilliantly powerful Concept_One, first shown in 2012, the Rimac C_Two combines the very best materials and bespoke technology to create the most technologically-advanced as well as fastest accelerating hypercar ever built.

Designed and produced in-house, the RimacC-Two is made entirely from scratch with all-new, groundbreaking technologies such as a full carbonfibre monocoque with bonded carbon roof, integrated battery pack and powertrain.

An innovative battery pack in technology and layout delivers 120 kWh energy and 1.4MW of power with exceptional thermal management.

With a top speed of 412 km/h, 0-100km/h in 1.85 seconds and 0 to 160 km/h in 4.3 seconds, the C_Two makes devastating use of the instant-torque available to an electric vehicle and the traction made possible by the unique drivetrain and bespoke tyres.

More than that, it maintains its sensational acceleration throughout the full-throttle cycle, achieving 300 km/h from rest in just 11.8 seconds.

Next-generation R-AWTV (Rimac All-Wheel Torque Vectoring) controls four electric motors, one per each wheel and is available (and necessary!)  to harness 1408 kW of power and 2300 Nm of torque — two and a half times the torque output of a contemporary hypercar.

With protoypes now in production, the Rimac C_Two will soon take its final shape and the first customers cars will be delivered in 2020.

Now in its 14th year, Salon Privé is a must-attend event for any car enthusiast or aficionado.

It is an automotive Garden Party held within the grounds of ‘Britain’s Greatest Palace’, Blenheim Palace and firmly established as the UK’s most exclusive automotive Garden Party.
