Croatian EV company prepares Concept_One follow-up
Rimac Automobili will release its second electric hypercar, inventively named Concept Two, at the Geneva motor show in March.
The electric start-up released a short teaser on Facebook, captioned with the question "why play by the rules, when you can change the game?"
Up front, the new electric hypercar looks similar to its predecessor, with slim headlights and a shapely bonnet, although the 'grille' has clearly been revised in the transition from Concept_One to Two.

There are no details about a powertrain yet, but expect the Concept Two to be properly powerful. The Concept_One makes 800kW of power and 1600Nm of torque, for a 2.6 second sprint to 100km/h. Range is currently limited to 354km, although up-to-date batteries and more efficient motors are likely to open the door for longer-haul drives in the upcoming model.
Impressive, but that sprint time is slower than the (claimed) time of the lightning-quick Tesla Roadster. It might not match 1.9 seconds, but expect the Concept Two to get close.
