Rimac Nevera Breaks 23 Performance Records in One Day

The Croatian made hypercar, the Rimac Nevera, has smashed records and even its own advertsied performance spec....

The Croatian hypercar, Rimac Nevera, is an impressive bit of machinery by all metrics. Not only does this electric hypercar have an impressive 1,914 hp and does 0-100 km/h in 1.85s, it actually outperforms its petrol-powered equivalents. It’s official now given that the Nevera just broke 23 performance records in a single day.

Tests were run at Germany’s Automotive Testing Papenburg (ATP) facility, and were independently verified by third-party companies Dewesoft and RaceLogic. The end result of these tests? It’s faster than advertised.

The Nevera was faced with a 0-400-0 km/h run to test its straight line performance by analysing aerodynamics, top speed, acceleration, and stopping power. The Nevera managed to speed up to 400 km/h from 0 and back to 0 in just 29.93 seconds. That’s over a second faster than the previous record holder, the Koenigsegg Regera.

The acceleration records were basically all smashed. The car managed 0-200 km/h in 4.42s continuing up to 300 km/h in 9.22s before finally reaching 400 km/h in 21.31s. It also managed to beat its own acceleration spec for 0-100 km/h by 0.04 clocking in at 1.81s.

“I am proud to say that the car we’ve created can get to 400 km/h and back to 0 in less time than it took the McLaren F1 to accelerate up to 350 km/h,” said Mate Rimac, founder and CEO of Rimac, in a statement.

“And not only that, but it can do it again and again, breaking every other performance record in the process. If you had a Nevera and access to a track, you could do it too.”

Powering the Nevera is a 120kWh battery pack with four electric motors on each wheel that can produce 1.4MW of power. It has a state of the art regenerative braking system combined with 390mm Brembo CCMR carbon-ceramic brake discs. 

There will only be 150 Neveras, but they will each cost about 2m(~$3,268,000 AUD).
