Rimac Nevera, already a world record

NEWS – While the first deliveries are starting in dribs and drabs, the Nevera has just set a world speed record at 412 km/h.

Almost as fast as a Bugatti Chiron. The Croatian brand Rimac, which took control of Bugatti as part of a joint venture with Porsche, has just caused a sensation by setting a world speed record with its Nevera electric supercar. Thanks to its four motors, one per wheel, this berlinetta claims the phenomenal power of 1,914 horsepower. It is thus capable of passing the 100 km/h mark in 1.97 seconds and reaching 300 km/h in 9.3 seconds.

The show of force does not stop there. For a few days now, we have known that it is not only able to pin down anything that rolls. The Nevera also rivals the best sports cars on the market when it comes to performance. On the Papenburg test track in Germany, the Croatian manufacturer’s electric berlinetta thus exceeded 400 km / h, reaching the miraculous speed of 412 km / h, relying on the two straight lines of 4 km of the circuit.

To achieve this performance, Miro Zrnčević, the test pilot responsible for the development of the Rimac models, activated the mode which reduces aerodynamic drag without degrading downforce in order to ensure perfect stability at high speed. The vehicle was fitted with Michelin Cup 2R tires specifically developed for the Nevera.

As with Bugatti, the top speed of the Nevera requires special preparation. As standard, the electric berlinetta can reach a speed of 352 km/h.
