The hypercar is also the fastest accelerating production car and the EV with the highest top speed.
The Nevera completed the narrow course in only 49.32 seconds.
Its quad-motor powertrain has been developed entirely in-house by Rimac-Bugatti.
The Rimac Nevera now has one more achievement to add to its rather full trophy case.
Indeed, the electric hypercar was the fastest production EV to take on the famous Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb with a time of only 49.32 seconds.
The Nevera was driven by the company’s Chief Test and Development Driver just like last year, but unlike in 2022, the focus was not merely on putting on a show.
While the car spent most of its time sideways with its tires going up in smoke last year, it made a more controlled but faster run this time around.
This is not the first record to be set by the hypercar, which is the result of a collaboration between Rimac and Bugatti.
Indeed, the Nevera is currently the fastest accelerating production car in the world and the production electric vehicle with the highest top speed ever recorded.
It is important to distinguish between production vehicles and purpose-built race cars, however, since a few one-off EVs have posted faster times before.
Nevertheless, the Nevera is still incredibly quick and it even managed to break 23 acceleration records on the same day a few months ago.
The hypercar’s powertrain is composed of four electric motors that act individually on the corresponding wheel. At the rear, each motor is capable of delivering 644 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque.
At the front, smaller units make for a still impressive 295 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque per wheel, for a maximum combined output of 1,813 horsepower.
These motors are fed by a 117-kWh battery pack that makes for an EPA range of 205 miles (330 kilometres) when driving conservatively. Drivers who want to exploit the capabilities of the Nevera should expect this figure to shrink considerably.
Surprisingly for such as small company, Rimac developed and builds all of the powertrain’s components, with the exception of a supercomputer provided by NVIDIA.
Only 150 examples of the Nevera will be built at the company’s production center in Croatia, near Zagreb.
