Rimac Automobili will officially start taking reservations and deposits for the production version of the Concept_One on the opening day of the Top Marques Monaco. The first customers will have the privilege of owning this unique limited-edition hypercar, with only 88 models being produced. It has been reported that the price is pegged at $980,000 for the Concept_One capable of 1088 hp, can reach 100 km/h from a standstill in 2.8 seconds and continue to accelerate to the limit of 305 km/h. 92kWh of energy in the Battery Modules delivers enough juice for up to 600 km of range.
The wheel looks different from the actual Concept_One, the rest of the car seems unchanged.
Rimac Automobili’s unique powertrain is divided into the front and rear sub-system. Each of those sub-systems contains two symmetrical motor-controller-reduction-gearbox units. This enables control of each wheel independently, thousands of times each second, in both directions, and Rimax says, an ‘unforgettable driving experience’. The motors are ‘Liquid Cooled Permanent Magnet’ types generating 250kW each. The batteries are each rated at 92kWh and collectively offer a range of 600km, which again we think would depend on driving conditions.
The Vredestein Ultrac Vorti is the Ultimate High Performance tyre. The tyre was designed by top Italian designer Giugiaro and has been developed with the most advanced and sportiest high performance cars in mind. The Concept_One’s revolutionary drive system, where each wheel is driven separately, needs a revolutionary tyre that can guarantee superior road handling and performance with an elegant and stylish appearance. The Ultrac Vorti is on display on the Concept_One during Top Marques Monaco in sizes 245/35 R 20 (front) and 295/30 R 20 (rear).
At the Top Marques Monaco, the only live supercar event in the world where visitors can not only admire the stunning cars on show but also have the opportunity try them out for themselves, His Royal Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco will underline this importance during his visit by paying particular attention to exhibitors presenting electric cars. This exclusive event is being held in the Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo, right next to the Monaco Formula 1 circuit.
