The Rimac Nevera sets a new record at Nürburgring and celebrates with the global premiere of “Time Attack” limited edition Nevera.
Rimac Nevera sets a new electric production car record at the Nürburgring: 7:05:298
To celebrate this new benchmark, “Time Attack” limited edition Rimac Nevera will be commercialized.
12 units of the electric hypercar will be built.
The Rimac Nevera smashed the previous EV production lap record at the Nürburgring track, beating it by an impressive 20 seconds on its 1st lap. The iconic 20.6 km (12.8-mile) Nürburgring track configuration saw the Nevera complete a remarkable lap in just 7 minutes and 0.928 seconds.
The record-breaking lap was executed by Croatian racing driver Martin Kodrić and validated by independent timing data and on-board telemetry. Utilizing Michelin Cup2R tires, the Nevera demonstrated its exceptional performance capabilities.
Martin Kodrić shared his insights about the feat, remarking, “A 7:05:298 lap time at the Nürburgring Nordschleife is commendable. The fact that the Nevera can achieve this kind of speed on track, when it’s been developed to be a comfortable hyper GT for the road, is what makes it so special. It’s such a well-rounded piece of engineering and design…”
Emilio Scervo, Chief Technology Officer at Bugatti Rimac, praised the accomplishment as a testament to Rimac’s innovation and dedication, highlighting their virtual performance optimization and industry pool testing. This achievement underscores the adaptability of the Nevera, which was initially designed as a hyper GT.
The Nürburgring record is just the latest in a series of over 20 records shattered by the Nevera this year. In April 2023, at the Automotive Testing Papenburg (ATP) in Germany, the Rimac Nevera claimed 23 performance records in a single day, including 0-100 km/h, 0-160 km/h, and 0-300 km/h. The Nevera had previously secured the title of the EV with the highest verified top speed, reaching 412 km/h.
The Nevera continued its record-breaking spree at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, setting a 49.32-second time during the timed Supercar Shootout. This performance not only established the Nevera as the fastest electric production car to tackle the hillclimb but also made it the fastest production car to run the hill in 2023.
In homage to its record-breaking achievements in 2023, Rimac Automobili is producing a limited edition of 12 Nevera Time Attack cars, all of which are already sold out. Mate Rimac, Founder and CEO of Rimac Group, stated, “The Nevera Time Attack is a Limited Edition that celebrates the achievements of the past year, wearing a bespoke livery inspired by the car that set off each of them.”
