In the last year, the company has completed the worldwide homologation of its vehicle. In the process, they "shared" several copies of the C_Two to check its safety and obtain all necessary permits for the car to be registered and drive safely around the world.
This car is designed to become the best electric hypercar in the world and was premiered on Wednesday under the name - Rimac Nevera. And when it comes to the name of the car, the company Rimac states that "disbelief" comes from the local speech, for a fast, unexpected and powerful Mediterranean wave, which blows on the Croatian open sea: "Incredible reflects the fantastic performance that the car is capable of performed in just one moment. "
The car has as much as 1.914 horsepower and 2.360 Nm, develops a maximum of 412 kilometers per hour and accelerates to 100 km / h in a fantastic 1,85 seconds.
These top performances would cost you an incredible 2 million euros, and a series of only 150 vehicles is planned.

Croatian traffic expert Zeljko Marusic in a statement for "Avtoportal" says that this was a "crazy ride" beyond all limits of safety standards, emphasizing that "it goes beyond the legal provisions that define arrogant driving and has characteristics of 'traffic terrorism' ".
- What would happen when a 2,2 ton electric car, on a road with intense two-way traffic, loses control? With the huge kinetic energy (which increases with the square of the velocity), which is released from the average bomb, this car will create a massacre - concluded the expert, noting that this driving violates all traffic safety norms.
