Rimac, the company behind the C1, which the infamous Richard Hammond crashed on the first episode of the Grand Tour, has once again taken the automotive world by storm with their latest launch; the Nevera.
Back in 2018, I wrote a sneak peek article about the Rimac C2, which provided insight into the sort of powerhouse and performance the upcoming concept car will have. Fair to say we have all be job smacked, and very few cars on the market can hold a candle against the Nevera.
Let’s start with the performance figures; the electric motor’s output is an astonishing 1914 bhp and 2300 Nm of torque. The car is so powerful that it propels it from 0-62 mph in under 2 seconds. Rimac themselves claim that the Nevera is the fastest accelerating production car on the planet. What’s even more impressive is the quarter-mile time, which takes a mere 8.6 seconds crossing the line at 160 mph. Its 120kWh batteries aren’t just powerful but also sophisticated too, with a range of over 400 miles. The added benefit of charging the batteries to 80% in under 30 minutes makes it an efficient car in its way.
Technology-wise, the Nevera is without doubt jam-packed full of the latest tech gizmos, so for the £2 million asking price, you do get added luxuries too. These include sound insulation, high definition speaker system and level 4 autonomous driving capabilities. There will be eight cameras, lidar, six radars and twelve ultrasonic sensors. While also, as expected, coming with a wide variety of driver assistance systems, including lane assist and auto-braking. However, the most impressive feature is the integration of facial recognition technology, which can open the butterfly doors and even staring the engine.
The design of the Nevera is also as impressive as its other defining features; the exterior design offers a sleek, aggressive and pronounced image. Where the original Rimac C1 greatly influenced the inspiration for the procedure. Albeit with a new front fascia, bonnet, doors, panels, spoiler and rear diffuser.
The wheels have been made with an aerodynamic design that channels cooling air to the carbon-ceramic brakes while ensuring smooth airflow down the car’s flanks. Unsurprisingly, the tyres are made out of a custom compound developed with the help of Pirelli, where the headlights are composed of 58 LEDs each and have their custom cooling control units. At the same time, the rear tail-lights are incorporated with air channel outlets.
The Nevera also incorporates active-aero, where the incisions into the hood are active flaps modifying the car’s aerodynamic profile as it moves. The rear spoiler is also dynamic, constantly moving and providing either additional downforce or acting as an air-brake. There are active flaps underneath the car that help with channelling cool air towards the battery cooling systems.
The Rimac Nevera has become the King of the Hill, claiming the record for being the fastest accelerating production car in the world. This is only just the beginning as we continue to evolve and develop the electric hypercar and see what other innovations the automotive industry has for us.
