Intruducing Rimac C_Two, The 256mph ELECTRIC Supercar

Posted On October 8th, 2019 - 9:26 am | by Oil and gas press

A pure electric GT hypercar as capable on track as it is on the highway. The C_Two is the world’s fastest, most exciting, and most technologically-advanced electric hypercar. It is luxurious, comfortable, spacious and practical. It has a broad, sculptural hood design that emphasises the C_Two’s strength and intent and includes active flaps that modify the car’s aerodynamic profile. This provides the kind of low coefficient of aerodynamic drag that allows this hypercar to slice the air like a silent knife, aiding both efficiency and performance.

The fully flat floor and optimised venturi-effect rear valance accelerate airflow underneath the car and remove positive pressure from beneath. Active flaps modify this effect to make the C_Two exceedingly efficient at managing the air it moves through, while channeling cool air to the battery pack cooling systems.

Rimac’s own suite of electronic control systems means that full torque-vectoring is available (and necessary!) to harness 1,914 hp (1,408 kW) of power and 2,300 Nm of torque – two and a half times the torque output of a contemporary hypercar. R-AWTV (Rimac All-Wheel Torque Vectoring) replaces traditional Electronic Stability Program and Traction Control systems and enables infinitely variable dynamic responses, from full grip to extended drifting capability, to satisfy even the most demanding of drivers. With such power comes responsibility: The C_Two is equipped with the latest braking technology. In addition to a maximum regenerative braking of 150 kW, huge 390mm Brembo CCMR carbon ceramic brake discs and six-piston calipers feature on both the front and rear axles, allowing for fade-free­­­, powerful deceleration.

With a top speed of 258 mph (412 km/h), a zero to 60mph time of 1.85* seconds and a zero to 100 mph (161 km/h) time of 4.3, the C_Two makes devastating use of the instant-torque available to an electric vehicle and the traction made possible by the unique drivetrain and bespoke Pirelli tyres. More than that, the C_Two maintains its eye-widening acceleration throughout a full-throttle cycle, achieving 186 mph (300 km/h) from rest in just 11.8 seconds. Such shattering ability equates to a quarter-mile time of just 9.1* seconds – a figure usually only associated with specialist racing machinery.

Yet the C_Two is a comfortable, bespoke GT car that has a 550 km range (WLTP), can be charged to 80-percent capacity in less than 30 minutes, and has been designed to be used hard, repeatedly and reliably. This is no fragile thoroughbred; new and innovative, liquid-cooled thermal management systems mean that this is a car capable of two full laps of the infamous Nürburgring at full power – with a negligible drop in performance.

R-AWTV replaces traditional ESP and TCS and enables infinitely variable dynamic responses by finessing the amount of torque to each wheel. This configurable drivetrain allows for minute calibration of behaviour, from rear-biased, driftable sportscar to a machine that can meter traction perfectly on slippery surfaces.

Top Speed: 412 km/h / 258 mph

Power: 1,914hp / 1,408 kW
Motor Torque: 2,300 Nm

  • Eight on-board cameras, a lidar sensor, six radar emitters and twelve ultrasonic sensors
  • Level 4 autonomous ready hardware is not about replacing the driver but enhancing his experience
  • ‘Driving Coach’ overlays selected racetracks provide real-time information on racing lines and braking points
  • Facial recognition in lieu of a traditional key
  • Performance ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and response-monitoring software that changes the car’s character depending on the driver’s mood or the prevailing weather conditions
