It's a little unclear what the race organizers did wrong.
Hammond still likes the car.
Rimac founder said the car traveled nearly 1,000 feet.
We ride the Greyp G12S Electric Bicycle in Croatia.
On this episode of Translogic, we check out an all-electric, super expensive supercar.
Sorry, Tesla, but this electric supercar is faster.
Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima has teamed up with Rimac Automobili to buff his all-wheel-drive E-Runner to megawatt status in an effort to thwart rival Rhys Millen at Pikes Peak.

Rimac Automobili is no stranger to our pages, but it's usually for the Concept_One supercar or its sleek spinoffs. Today, though, the company is talking up a feel-good alternative use for the electric vehicle's batteries: powering a wheelchair for a young fan, Rolly Bugnar, who suffers from a serious and legitimate case of range anxiety.
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.
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
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.
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.
