When the sheet is lifted from the Rimac Automobili Concept One electric hypercar on September 13th at the Frankfurt Motor Show – Hall 4.0, Stand A43 at 3:00 pm, in case you plan on attending – we hope the Croatian company has some heated neck pads on hand. There may be a few cases of whiplash that need treating.
Ahead of its reveal at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Rimac Automobili has released some rendered teasers that hike the skirt of its all-electric, all-wheel-drive, 1088-horsepower Concept One supercar that we were telling you about, and have also given us details that further pique our interest in the company's first production vehicle.
The Frankfurt Motor Show is always a big event for Peugeot, which has used the occasion to show off interesting vehicles like the 308 hybrid HDi and the Flux in 2007 and the BB1, the 5008 minivan and the RCZ sport coupe in 2009. For 2011, Peugeot announced today it will bring two world debuts – the 508 RXH diesel hybrid and the HX1 plug-in hybrid concept – neither of which is as mind-bending as the BB1. That's probably a good thing.
Auto show season seems to arrive earlier each year. We're not yet fully into the swing of said season, but the rumors are starting to swirl about who is bring what to where. One of the first on our 2011 travel calendar is the Frankfurt Motor Show, whose media days fall in mid-September. Jaguar will be there, and it seems it's bringing a sporty new concept along as well.
