Rimac removes wraps off the Nevara, the production version of the C-Two
The Rimac Nevera will be the fastest accelerating production car in the world!
The Nevera is powered by an all-electric quad-motor setup generating a power output of 1888bhp (1408 kW) and 2360Nm. This translates into exhilarating levels of acceleration and performance, as the Nevera hits the 100kmph mark in just 1.97 seconds, while a 0-300kmph run can be covered in just 9.3 seconds from standstill! It maxes out at a top speed of 412kmph.
The Nevera gets a 120kWh liquid-cooled H-shaped battery pack which comprises 6960 cells, with a WLTP-tested range of 550km. It also supports 500kW fast charging, which means a 0-80 per cent charge will take just about 22 minutes when plugged into the right fast charger.
Rimac has focused heavily on the aerodynamics of the Nevera, with the company claiming 34 per cent better aero efficiency compared to the Concept C-Two. It also features low drag and high downforce modes which work thanks to the independent movement of the front bonnet profile, the underbody flap, rear diffuser and the rear wing, with the help of algorithms that provide a suitable aerodynamic configuration based on different driving situations. The Nevera also comes equipped with 390mm Brembo carbon-ceramic disc brakes to keep the immense speed in check.
You get a total of seven drive modes on the Nevera, namely Sport, Comfort, Drift, Range, Track, and two custom modes to alter the characteristics of the hypercar to your liking. Rimac has also provided the Nevera with Level 4 autonomous driving capabilities. It has also developed an AI Driver Coach system which will help drivers analyse their performance by offering them guidelines and assistance to further enhance their abilities on the racetrack. However, there is a catch; the AI Driver Coach system will only be available in 2022 via over-the-air updates. But it is said to be pre-loaded with all major racetracks around the world and if there are any there aren’t, it only takes a few laps around for the system to remember it.
Rimac will only be manufacturing 150 units of the Nevera, and it will be available in four trim levels, namely the GT, Signature, Timeless and a custom Bespoke trim which will be available only via Rimac’s Bespoke programme. The Nevera is priced at 2.4 million Euro, which converts to roughly Rs 17.9 crore excluding Indian taxes and duties. This means that if someone were to import a Nevera to India, that price would be closer to Rs 50 crore! If it is any consolation, each Nevera will be signed by Rimac’s founder and CEO, Mate Rimac.
