Auto: Ri­mac C_Two

Ri­mac C_Two

HWM (Singapore) - - Contents - By Kenny Yeo

The name Ri­mac might leave you scratch­ing your head, but this lit­tle au­tomaker out of Croa­tia is ded­i­cated to build­ing some of the world’s fastest and most out­ra­geous all-elec­tric su­per­cars. Their new­est weapon is called the C_Two and it is a mon­ster for the road.

Let’s talk per­for­mance rst. Un­der the C_Two’s full car­bon ber chas­sis are four elec­tric mo­tors pro­duc­ing 1,914hp and 2,300nm of torque. This is enough to cat­a­pult the C_Two from a stand­still to 100km/h in un­der 2 sec­onds. 0 to 300km/h Just 11.8 sec­onds. And if you got the co­jones and a long enough stretch of road, the C_Two can hit a max­i­mum speed of 415km/h.

De­spite the in­cred­i­ble per­for­mance, the C_Two has enough juice for a range of about 650km and can charge from 0 to 80% in just 30 min­utes with a spe­cial fast-charger.

Wacky per­for­mance aside, the C_Two is also su­per high-tech. It has an ar­ray of 72 ECUs and pro­ces­sors, 12 ul­tra­sonic sen­sors, 8 cam­eras, 6 radars, and LIDAR. This en­ables it to achieve Level 4 au­ton­omy. And like the iPhone X, the C_Two can be un­locked with fa­cial recog­ni­tion tech­nol­ogy. Say good­bye to keys!

Ri­mac plans to make only 150 units of these and the price is ex­pected to be well into the seven gures ter­ri­tory. Hey, no­body ever said the lat­est in cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy was cheap.
