Bugatti Rimac CEO goes off-roading with a Nevera
This Nevera will be crash-tested so why not?
It was the first pre-series Nevera assembled.
There have been lots going on at Rimac these last few months. The joining of Bugatti and Rimac, with the support of Porsche, is one. Another is Rimac completing homologation crash testing for Europe and soon, the Nevera will be fully street legal in the US. This means that crash testing is almost complete.
But just before the first pre-series Rimac Nevera, the one some journalists and investors got to drive over the last few weeks, undergoes a pair of frontal crash tests, Mate Rimac, Bugatti Rimac CEO, decided to do something unusual with a 2 million euro hypercar.
In the video, Rimac takes the Nevera to a country lane for some high-speed leaf-flying drive-bys. Although this is far from extreme, he then heads out to the construction site where the future Rimac Campus is being built. A few drifts and donuts later and the Nevera is still intact, if quite muddy.
Don’t worry about the Nevera’s paint by the way. As Rimac mentions, the car will be hand-painted with rollers before being crashed…
