Rimac Nevera silently rockets into Jay Leno’s Storage


The Rimac Nevera is among the hottest hypercars of the second, so naturally it made an look at Jay Leno’s Storage. Rimac additionally despatched over improvement driver Miroslav Zrncevic to elucidate the main points of the electrical celebrity.

The Nevera is the manufacturing of the Rimac C_Two idea that first appeared on the 2018 Geneva auto present, and successor to the Rimac Concept_One, Rimac’s first electrical hypercar. After plenty of improvement work (about 1.6 million hours, Zrncevic reckons) and coronavirus-related delays, the Nevera lately entered manufacturing, with the primary buyer automotive going to 2016 Method 1 champion Nico Rosberg

.Headline figures embody 4 electrical motors producing a mixed 1,914 hp and 1,740 lb-ft of torque, which allowed the Nevera to run an 8.58-second quarter mile at 167.51 mph in a 2021 take a look at—a production-car report, Rimac claims. The Nevera additionally has an EPA-rated 287 miles of vary.

The benefit of getting 4 motors—one powering every wheel—is extra management over how energy is distributed, Zrncevic explains within the video. Rimac’s management system permits for modifications within the entrance/rear torque break up, in addition to torque vectoring. These parameters, together with suspension stiffness, steering weight, and accelerator response, are included into 5 drive modes for various talent ranges and conditions—together with a drift mode.

Like different hypercars from established automakers, the Nevera has a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis. It is the most important single carbon-fiber part presently produced by the auto business, Zrncevic says within the video. Battery modules are housed behind the seats (roughly the place the engine could be in conventional mid-engined supercars), within the footwells, and in a central tunnel to maintain the middle of gravity as little as potential and optimize weight distribution.

Additionally highlighted within the video are the Nevera’s energetic aerodynamic parts, encompassing a front-hood flap, underbody flap, rear wing, and rear diffuser. They are often adjusted so as to add or subtract downforce, and work with facet air inlets to assist cooling. These inlets are formed like a cravat necktie, a nod to Rimac’s Croatian homeland, the place that piece of clothes originated.

Rimac plans to construct 150 Neveras at a charge of fifty per yr, and priced at roughly $2.4 million every.

With manufacturing underway, Rimac will transfer on to growing automobiles in live performance with Bugatti. Rimac’s automotive division merged with Bugatti final yr to type Bugatti Rimac.
