The Rimac Nevera is considered one of the world’s most daring electric hypercars, breaking a whopping 23 records in just one day, further boosting its status in the automotive world. Electric hypercars are already used to pushing the boundaries of automotive engineering, but the Rimac Nevera recently went above and beyond on a test track in Germany – metaphorically, of course.

For final testing of its acceleration, braking, top speed and aerodynamics, a unit of the ultra-exclusive Rimac Nevera was taken to the car testing Papenburg facility, where the company claims it drove away without any reliability or performance. question. During a day of testing, the Rimac Nevera broke several records.

Some of the most impressive records broken by the Rimac Nevera include the straight-line performance record, in which a supercar accelerates from 0 to 400 km/h and back to 0 at 29.93 km/h, faster than the previous record holder whole second. It managed to improve on its own official spec by doing 0 to 60 mph (96.56 km/h) in 1.74 seconds. Its official spec sheet reveals a figure of 1.85 seconds. It then managed to clock 1.81 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, 4.42 seconds from 0 to 200 km/h, 9.22 seconds from 0 to 300 km/h and 21.31 seconds from 0 to 400 km/h Second.

Even in terms of acceleration and instant braking, the Rimac Nevera is impressive. From 0 to 100 kmph and back to 0 in just 3.9 seconds. The clock is 8.85 seconds from 0 to 200 kmph and back to 0.
Croatian automaker Rimac Automobili claims that all acceleration records were achieved on standard single-foot rollouts and fitted with road-legal Michelin Cup 2 R tires on non-prepared asphalt. No wonder founder Mate Rimac is so happy and proud. “Today, I’m proud to say that we’ve created a car that can hit 400 km/h and come back to 0 in less time than a McLaren F1 can accelerate to 350 km/h,” he said in a press release explain. “Not only that, but it can do it time and time again, breaking every other performance record in the process. If you have Nevera and access to tracks, you can do it too.”
But while access to the track may not be a problem for many, the chance to own a Rimac Nevera is. The electric hypercar is an ultra-exclusive model with only 150 being produced. Each unit costs up to 2 million euros or about $2.2 million.
