‘Croatian Elon Musk’ Launches A 256mph Electric Car With 2,000 Horsepower

Capable of being used in heavily built-up locations!


The 31-Year-Old entrepreneur, The Croatian Elon Musk has designed an entirely new electric hyper-car capable of hitting a speed of 60mph in 1.85 seconds.

Mate Rimac, the creator of the company’s batteries, including the Aston Martin, Renault and Koenigsegg dubbed the groundbreaking 2,000 horsepower speedster after himself.

Rimac C_Two produces 1914hp from 4 permanent-magnet motors, propelling it to a top speed of 256mph and hitting a speed of 60mph, faster than its rivalry, Telsa

Rimac C_Two produces 1914hp from 4 permanent-magnet motors, propelling it to a top speed of 256mph and hitting a speed of 60mph, faster than its rivalry, Telsa.

Very much more impressive than its speeds is Rimac’s ability to conjure a range of 340 miles from the car’s battery on a single charge.

Being extremely fast, the C_Two will also have to boast of its latest modcons, including a Level 4 Autonomy and a Facial Recognition, implying a fully driverless car capable of being used in heavily built-up locations.

‘I think, Rimac is really a genius. I also think he is going to be a legend.’ Heiko Mayer, the Powertrain project leader for Porsche’s all-electric Taycan said.

Speaking about his success, Rimac who spoke to ZeroHedge said: ‘It’s a lot of optimization, trying out things and experimenting, being fast and doing loops – concept, simulation, idea, detailed prototyping, again and again.

Three years ago, Rimac created his Concept_One, which had 1,224hp and was quickly crushed by British Presenter, Richard Hammond while on a Swiss Hillside.

Currently, Rimac has about 600 employees and has thoroughly expanded its facilities. On the other hand, a new compound will be built on 54 acres of Croatian Countryside to allow the firm to continue its development.
