Rimac Boss Drag Races C_Two Prototype Vs Porsche Taycan Turbo S

The electric hypercar is an absolute rocket, even without launch control and full power.

Developing an all-electric car from the ground up takes time, especially if the said car has four motors and four gearboxes. Mate Rimac, founder and CEO of Rimac Automobili, has been impressively transparent in regards to the hypercar’s development following the concept’s debut in March 2018 at the Geneva Motor Show.

After going behind the scenes with the R&D process in recent months through a series of videos on social media, the 33-year-old Croatian entrepreneur is back with an exciting video showing the C_Two in action on an unused airfield. Seen here is a pre-production prototype with 85 to 90 percent of the full torque owners will be able to enjoy in the final version, which will go by another name.

The fully homologated road-going prototype was put to the test in quarter-mile runs and managed to complete the task in 8.95 seconds at 156.1 mph (251.2 km/h) after doing 0-60 mph in 2.42 seconds in the very first outing with the tires still cold. Following several trial runs, the first proper quarter-mile sprint took only 8.94 seconds at 155.1 mph (249.7 km/h).

When a company’s CEO says a 0 to 60 mph run in 2.33 seconds is “quite bad,” you know that car is going to be an absolute rocket. After all, Rimac has previously said the production model will do the job in 1.85 seconds on its way to a top speed of 258 mph (412 km/h) thanks to a whopping 1,914 horsepower (1,408 kilowatts) and 1,696 pound-feet (2,300 Newton-meters) of torque.
