Rimac C_Two drops with 1,914 electrifying HP, enough torque to move mountains

Just when we thought Geneva’s red carpet couldn’t get more extreme

Rimac dropped a comprehensive photo gallery showing the C_Two in all its splendor but there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to Croatia’s mad all-electric supercar – that is, the spec sheet.

Right, where do we start? First, make a mental note that says C_Two is not a concept. Because it is not. It can hit the road as we speak and Rimac hopes to build at least 150 units of it.

At the very core, C_Two uses carbon fiber for a super-strong, ultra-light monocoque strengthened with more carbon fiber and aluminum. Carbon fiber is also the material of choice for the body.

C_Two sits on electronically controlled dampers and each wheel gets its own electric motor, so all-wheel drive is present together with torque-vectoring. Overall power output stands at 1,914 hp while peak torque comes in at 1,696 lb-ft (2,300 Nm), a massive jump from the Concept One’s 1,224 hp which were not to ignore to begin with.

But hear this one: power flows to the front wheels via two single-speed gearboxes while the rear axle is fed with torque through two double-speed carbon-clutch transmissions. Backed by this kind of gear, C_Two needs just 1.85 seconds to obliterate the 0-60 mph (96 km/h) interval and can hit 258 mph (415 km/h) when needed.

Rimac literature says it C_Two can go for 403 miles (km) on a single charge, but that’s more likely to happen with a very-light-footed driver behind the wheel. Nevertheless, it can recharge its 120 kWh battery pack to 80% in about an hour, provided it’s connected to a 250 kW fast charging network, but at the same time, the powertrain/drivetrain arrangement needs seven cooling setups and all sorts of breathers to keep temperature at the optimum level.

We can’t even decide what’s more spectacular about the car? The fact that it relies on 72 electronic control units and processors – together, they provide the same computing power as 22 MacBook Pro laptops, or about 64.4 GHz – or the stylish cabin dominated by three generous-size touchscreen displays.
