4Formula E acquiring Rimac Concept_One, will give rides

Every job has its perks, but some are perkier than others. Take, for example, the race director of the FIA Formula E series. Not only will this lucky individual get to travel around the world, introducing different cities to top-level electric road racing, they also will have a very exclusive company car: the Concept_One from Rimac Automobili.

25Rimac secures funding to bring Concept_One electric supercar to market

Output figures are what make headlines, but for the real gear heads, it's just as interesting to know how that power is made. Cars like the Koenigsegg Agera and the SSC Ultimate Aero use V8 engines with twin turbochargers, while the Bugatti Veyron essentially uses twice that cylinder- and spool-count, but in the end they're all about conventional, internal combustion. The latest breed of supercars like the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder combine an internal-combustion engine

9Greyp Bikes puts Rimac performance on two wheels *UPDATE

A Rimac for the rest of us? If you've been bummed that you couldn't quite afford an electric supercar from Rimac Automobili, don't despair. It appears the folks behind the Concept_One have applied their engineering talent to a simpler, more affordable product. Freshly revealed at the Salon Privé in London, behold, the Greyp G12: an exceptional electric bicycle with motorcycle-like performance.

24Rimac Automobili expands into component supply, ready for DIY electric vehicles

It not easy building a true high-performance electric vehicle. Even if money isn't a problem, there is a dearth of component suppliers with the kind of equipment and expertise you would need to succeed. Tesla Motors is unlikely to hand out examples of the secret sauce that gives its Model S Performance 416 horsepower, for example. Similarly, the system that motivates the Mercedes-Benz AMG SLS Electric Drive is jealously guarded and not for sale. Enter Rimac Automobili.

16Rimac Automobili delivers first electric supercar, can't let us see it

Rimac Automobili has just accomplished what all startups in the electric vehicle space promise, but mostly never deliver on: Job One. That's right, the Croatian company has completed its very first all-electric supercar for a paying customer. There's just one problem: we can't see it yet.

5Mate Rimac's e-M3 launches itself into FIA record books

A few years back, Mate Rimac replaced the internal combustion drivetrain in his 1986 BMW E30 with an electric one and dubbed it the bi-moto EV – it was originally intended it to have two motors. Then, in a quest to build the fastest electric car ever, he reconfigured that original setup four more times.

21Rimac Concept_One looks lovely in London at Salon Privé, but expect changes [w/video]

The Salon Privé is England's most exclusive automobile show, and with its exotic looks, hypercar performance and posh price tag, the Rimac Automobili Concept_One is fitting in quite nicely. And while the upper class crowd in attendance might be able gaze upon it and imagine the all-electric, all-wheel-drive Croatian super steed in their stable, what they will actually receive if they write out a check will be somewhat different. It will be, in a word, better.

23Rimac Concept_One shreds tires, misconceptions

When the Concept_One electric supercar from Rimac Automobili first went on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show, there were those who assumed that it was more of a pedestal princess than an actual operational vehicle. They were proven wrong when footage emerged of it moving stealthily about the vicinity of the company's Croatian headquarters.

23Rimac Automobili Concept One rolls off the turntable, onto the road

We really loved the look of the all-electric Rimac Automobili Concept One that debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show as it spun in circles upon its carpeted turntable, the lights making the paint glitter. Turns out, it looks even better rolling down the road on a foggy Croatian morning.

12Rimac's Concept One battery-powered supercar finally done teasing us

We've been teasing the Rimac Automobili Concept One for the last two weeks, and finally got a glimpse of some studio shots of the electric supercar yesterday. Our team at the Frankfurt Motor Show finally turned their lenses on the EV with a ginormous 92-kWh of lithium phosphate battery pack (which we think is the biggest one available in a passenger car, unless you count the mysterious – and burnt – Kolibri pack in the DMB-converted Audi A2) and four individual motors (one for each w

22Rimac Automobili Concept One revealed [w/video]

The sheet has been lovingly lifted from the Rimac Automobili Concept One at the Frankfurt Motor Show and the first official images are now available. As the earlier teasers suggested, this electric supercar looks absolutely, well...super! It's hard to believe that a machine with performance that far outshines anything brought forward by established auto companies has been pulled off by a 23-year-old kid from Croatia.

11Rimac Automobili Concept One's Frankfurt teaser pics make us ohhh, ahhh

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.

17World's first all-electric supercar teased ahead of Frankfurt Motor Show [w/video]

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.

6VST Conversions BWM EV gets faster, lighter, more powerful

While it was only a short four months ago when we first reported on the BMW bi-moto EV Racer, things haven't slowed down at VST Conversions. We wanted to give you an update on this one-of-a-kind electric conversion that is only getting better. Gone are the pair of power packs (one in the passenger compartment and one in the trunk) using Headway cells, and in their place is a custom-designed pack using 300 lithium iron phosphate cells. Not only smaller and more powerful, the new pack barely tips
