Go back a decade or so – before Koenigsegg, SSC and the Bugatti Veyron were on the scene – and the idea of a million-dollar, thousand-horsepower supercar that could break the three-second barrier to sixty would seem out of this world. Posting those kinds of figures with an electric car? No way.
Way. That's what the Rimac Concept_One is all about. It chews up Tesla Roadsters and spits them back out into the Silicon Valley from whence they came. The electric motors mounted at each wheel give the electric supercar 1,088 horsepower of thrust and a 2.8-second sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph). Range comes in at a claimed 372-miles. All yours (if you're one of the first 88 customers to call) for the low, low price of $980,000.
We could hardly believe it when we saw the show car in Frankfurt last year, and neither could the show-goers in Monte Carlo where it made its production debut. So to show the public that it was for real, Rimac put out this short video clip showing its Croatian creation laying down patches of its Giugiaro-designed Vredestein rubber on the tarmac. It's brief, but it's worth a watch. Scroll down below to check it out.
