Rimac unveiled its next hypercar at the Geneva show next year, he confirmed.
The car will be more comfortable and more expensive than the Concept of A, but also capable of even better performance, according to Monika Mikac, the Croatian office of the chief operating officer. Rimac has also described the model as “a real game-changer”.
With the Concept of the name of the Two it definitely won’t be called like that, said Mikac – the model will be “comfortable luxury” and a little bit larger than the Concept but still a two-seater. Mikac said there are no plans to build a four-seater.
She added that it will be “more high performance” as the design Concept. This car offers 1224bhp and 1180lb ft of torque and has a 0-62mph sprint time of 2.5 seconds.
While only eight Concept have been built, in addition to two track-only Concept S models, the next car will be a production of 100, with Mikac providing that Rimac would sell 20 units in the first year.
Concept Two will still be “in a league with Pagani, Koenigsegg and Bugatti”, Mikac claimed, and cost more than £1 million Concept.
It will also be wider than the current model – which has 205 km depending on the riding style – although Mikac has recognised that the range is not a major concern for customers, given that these cars are not used as daily drivers.
After the launch of the standard coupe, there will be the track and the variants of the Notion of the Two to arrive in the next few years.
Mikac said that all the cars have the same design DNA as the Concept. She pointed out that the side lines of the car are a tribute to the neck tie, which was created by a Croatian, and will continue in future models.
While Rimac is eager to grow its car offering, its principal business activity is to be a supplier to other companies. It provides the battery for the Koenigsegg Regera, and will be supplying the battery and the infotainment system for the next Aston Martin Valkyrie.
It is a domain Rimac has the intention to grow: at the present time, the company is doing 100 batteries per year, but it is planning to ramp up to 5 000-10 000 in the coming years, said Mikac.
