‘Boys’ and cars are inseparable from the moment the boys are born. Even though some people will say that this is only a clichés or prejudices, we claim that there is the special connection between male and his metal pet. The real example is Mate Rimac, 28 years old Croat, who made the fastest electric car in the world. Yes, you heard it right, and maybe you heard about him before but these days for us, Croats, Mate is the most popular person in the world. This young man who started his dream by making a high school assignment – iGlove, and who was the amateur rally driver who built his cars in the father’s garage finally presented his new innovation to the world. At the Geneva Auto Show Rimac and his team presented their Concept One (the car that looks like those beautiful, fast cars from the Fast and Furious or the James Bond movies), but also its ‘Evil Twin’ – The radical Rimac Concept_S.
What (the he..) is Conept_S?
The car built to utilize the maximum potential of the Rimac All Wheel Torque Vectoring system, the Concept_S has 218 kW (296 hp) and 200 Nm more power and torque, 50 kg less weight, and an aggressive aerodynamic package.
The aerodynamic elements enhance downforce by 34 % (up to 650 kg of load) which press the chassis to the ground. Combined with high-performance tires, higher levels of grip are enabled opening a wide spectrum of extreme setups for the Rimac All Wheel Torque Vectoring (RAWTV) system.
With 1384 hp and 1800 Nm of torque, the Concept_S raises the bar of dynamic performance.
Why is it soo important to us?
Except for the engine, tires and new technologies the new Concept_S have another special meaning for Croatia and Zagreb in particular – it has shown to the world that Croatia has a lot of things (ideas and brain!) to offer at the global market. We are proud to have a unique Croatian car at Geneva International Motor Show 2016 which is from today opened to the public. Visitors will be able to watch the fantastic cars up to 13th of March. The ‘fair’ is opened from Monday to Friday (10 am to 8 pm) and Saturday – Sunday from 9 am to 7 pm.
