Rimac Nevera, the company’s latest product, can sprint to 96 kmph in 1.85 seconds.
The acceleration time of any hypercar is critical. Sprinting from 0 to 96 kmph in less than two seconds is possible in a number of production hypercars. However, a Rimac engineer claims that reaching that mark in less than one second is also possible. This appears to be in the works, as the Croatian hypercar manufacturer has close ties to Bugatti.
The company’s newest product, the Rimac Nevera, can sprint to 96 kmph in 1.85 seconds. However, Rimac Nevera’s Chief Program Engineer, Matija Renic, believes that production cars can achieve the acceleration in less than one second. However, Renic did not reveal the exact acceleration timing while speaking to The Drive. He instead stated that a time of less than one second is possible. “We can’t explain how fast that is – theory says one second is the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the cesium-133 atom’s ground state,” he added.
Interestingly, he also indicated that it is about production vehicles, not concept cars. Dedicated drag racing cars can do this at the track with slicks, but it seems that traction on the street will be the deciding factor. The Nevera electric hypercar is close to this achievement.
However, Renic claims that Nevera was not designed solely for acceleration. “We are very proud of the figures here and there, but the car is more than that. It’s not a one-trick pony; it’s not a dragster that you take to the drag strip and set the fastest times. The car is actually quite complex, demonstrating what future automotive technology is capable of. Furthermore, it is extremely usable and user-friendly “Renic stated.
