Rimac C Two electric hypercar shocks Geneva with 1914 horsepower

Rimac C_Two unveiled this afternoon in Geneva

But it is not just short bursts of acceleration or a ridiculous top speed that the Rimac is good at, it also has one of the highest possible ranges of any electric auto in existence today.

That's fast, but the Croatian company has built an even more impressive follow-up in the C_Two, which made its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It can go from 0-60 miles per hour in just 1.85 seconds and has 1,914 horsepower from its all-electric powertrain.

The front wheels have a single-speed transmission as in conventional electric cars while the rear wheels get a 2-speed gearbox. A staggering 650 kms on a full charge. And then there is the active rear wing that can adjust minutely while the vehicle is in motion and turns into an air brake at the touch of a button.

Because there's a motor for each wheel, the C_Two features R-AWTV, or Rimac All-Wheel Torque Vectoring, constantly varying the output of each motor according to driving conditions. The underbody also has a magnitude of flaps that crate venturi effects and adds to the downforce that the Rimac C_Two makes.

The vehicle has four engines, active aerodynamics and suspension, eight cameras, electric steering wheel control, and electric brakes. There's a blue/brown interior colour scheme for the show vehicle, electric seat and steering wheel adjustment, a fully-digital instrument cluster, and a large central touchscreen which houses the infotainment system.

In addition to all this, the Rimac C_Two is a Level 4 Autonomous auto. Those are all made possibility by eight cameras, lidar, six radars, 12 ultrasonic sensors and Global Positioning System.

As part of its autonomous capability, the C_Two's systems can load selected race tracks in real time, offering guidance on racing lines, braking/acceleration points and steering inputs.

It's easy to look at the incredible performance figures and range claim with a certain degree of scepticism, given they come from a fledgling Croatian manufacturer. And so can the rear storage area, which can also be completely removed to expose the mechanical bits underneath like most other mid engine cars get.

Like its drivetrain, the C_Two's chassis and body are all-new.

The price? We're no sure yet, though expect the C_Two to cost a pretty penny, or many.
