Rimac Answers The Question: But Will It Drift?

Rimac’s C_Two lays down some slideways rubber as it demonstrates that it can actually drift

  • The Rimac C_Two will be a 1,914 horsepower electric super-hypercar

  • If any of you wondered if the C_Two could drift, Rimac answers the question.

  • The 56-second video is exhibit A.

All Mate Rimac, the founder of Croatian-born Rimac Automobili, had to say was: “Show us.” Mr. Rimac wanted to make sure that his C_Two delivered perfect handling before including driver-assist systems. It does.

The Rimac C_Two’s progress is moving along nicely, I guess we could say it’s on track. Expectations for the 1,914 horsepower and 2,300 Nm (1,696 lb.-ft.) of torque has the specs to make it one of the fastest production cars of all time. But the important question is: Will it handle well?

Or more specifically, in this case, will the Rimac C_Two drift? From this brief video, the C-Two looks quite at ease going sideways. Rimac is in the process of developing its “Drift Mode” which, as we know, is a crucial element in any high-performance car. The reality is that only a highly-trained high-performance driver could possibly harness the C_Two’s monumental power. The Drift Mode will enable Mr., Ms. Or Mrs. Billionaire to put their multi-million dollar sideways in relative “safety”.

Here are a few other specs on the Rimac C_Two: It gets to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 1.85 seconds, 160 km/h (100 mph) in 4.3 seconds and hit 300 km/h (187 mph) in just 11.8 seconds, long after the ¼ run is completed. Fastest production car of all time, and it can drift? It’s perfect.
