Rimac not only had the most powerful car at at this year’s Geneva Motor Show with its new C_Two, it also supplied components to other electric hyper cars.
The two most powerful cars at Geneva Motor Show 2019 were electric. Both had close to or more than 1,900 horsepower, and both can reach 100 km/h in less than 2.0 seconds. The Rimac C_Two was one of them. The Pininfarina Battista was the other one.
The C_Two was unveiled at last year’s Geneva Motor Show, but it returned for the 2019 edition with a new powertrain and a new color.
One of the most impressive features of the Rimac C_Two is its monocoque platform that sits under its supercar body. Mate Rimac, the company’s founder, says it’s the largest of its kind and covers not only the driver compartment but also the powertrain in the back and both front and rear suspensions.
Aside from being incredibly stiff, it is also one of the most beautiful things you can look at if you’re an automotive enthusiast. Covered in a matte finish, it’s simply stunning.
In any case, the Rimac C_Two is just pure performance wrapped in a typical hypercar design that has to power to mesmerize.
The Rimac’s four electric motors generate 1,914 horsepower and 1,696 pound-feet of torque. That gets you to 100 km/h in 1.85 seconds and 300 km/h in just 11.8 seconds. All this is powered by a 120-kWh battery that gives the Rimac C_Two 550 kilometers of range.
These numbers all best the Pininfarina Battista. The latter uses many components from the Rimac, but you have to figure the Croatian automaker wanted to keep the numbers supremacy. Task accomplished. There wasn’t a more powerful car at the Geneva Motor Show this year.
