Rimac C_Two Takes On The Porsche Taycan

EVs killing ICEs in drag races is common. This EV vs. EV isn’t yet that common


  • Two of the fastest EVs take it to the drag strip.

  • As Rimac says, straight-line speed is not everything but…

  • We’ll find out the C_Two’s real production name soon.


Rimac Automobili has been working on bringing their C_Two super-hypercar to market for a few years now. Every step has been epic but this video shows what’s really up when it comes to making the fastest most powerful electric vehicle in the world. This video features the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, one of the quickest accelerating vehicles in the world.

While the video speaks for itself, the coolest aspect is that Mate Rimac demonstrates the various drive modes and settings that are part of the C_Two. From Range mode to Sport, to Drift, the Track, what’s most amazing is that the modes can be adjusted beyond their fixed settings. Importantly, for this prototype, there’s no launch mode.

The deserted airfield isn’t perfect according to Rimac as the surface is dirty and uneven. The first trial run reveals that the C-Two is fast, clocking a ¼ mile time of 8.94 seconds at 249.7 km/h – making the fastest production car in the world, faster than the Bugatti Chiron.

Although the Taycan Turbo S is not a hypercar, everyone knows it’s really fast. The soon-to-be re-baptized Rimac C_Two is on another level.
