 Rimac’s latest teaser videos of its C_Two hypercar just revealed that the all-electric hypercar could go from 0-60 mph in 1.85 seconds, besting the numbers set by Tesla’s next-generation Roadster. The C_Two also boasts a 130 kW battery, 1.900 hp and 2.300 ft-lbs of torque.

Rimac has been very deliberate about revealing the specs of its latest creation. Prior to the reveal of the hypercar, very little information apart from its horsepower and 0-100 km/h rating were revealed.

If a driver doesn’t feel confident in handling this insane performance, then a person can hand control over to the machine. Rimac claims the C_Two would have Level 4 autonomous capability meaning that the on-board computers would be able to drive the car without human intervention. In a feature that’s right out of a video game, the navigation system can load race tracks and provide input about the ideal racing line and braking points.

Capable of a top speed of 258mph, Rimac claims that new liquid-cooled thermal management systems mean the car is capable of two full laps of the Nürburgring at full power with negligible drop in performance. An inability to perform consistently is a criticism often levelled at electric performance cars. The C_Two has a claimed range of 404 miles on an NEDC cycle and can be charged to 80% capacity in less than 30 minutes.

Rimac accepts enquires for getting the C_Two on its Website. The firm intends to build 150 of them with the first deliveries in 2020. There’s no mention of price, but expect a figure on par with the unfathomable performance.
