The cottage Croatian electric industry, as known as Rimac Automobili, keeps making news for trying to kill “The Grand Tour” star Richard Hammond. The supercar is still an enigma in much of the world, including the U.S.but despite the fact that at least one person was able to bring it here. U.K’s car magazine recently got the chance to drive the Rimac in California, sampling the Concept One on a variety of roads (most of which are very good, it must be said). The price of the car’s 205-mile range is still very modern despite the long gestation time from concept to production, and according to the company, it’s still faster than the latest of hypercars. The production of the Concept One(name) that debuted in Geneva in 2016 promised 1,073 hp engine , 1,180 lb-ft of torque, 0-62 mph times of 2.6 seconds and a top speed of at least 220 mph. An 82-kWh battery sends power to four electric motors, one in every wheel, and the car has a fully charged range of 205 miles.Maybe equally impressive, from a production standpoint, the company simply couldn’t afford the $25 million minimum order from suppliers, so it built its own one. With the car’s price of $1.2 million, Rimac said that it planned to build just eight pieces a small run even in the world of million-dollar supercars.
