Concept One Electric Supercar Goes on Sale
May 2nd, 2012
There are many reasons I wish I was rich. One of the big ones is I’d like to be able to purchase all the awesome cars I see. One of the cool vehicles that you can bet I’d add to my collection if I were loaded is the new Concept One EV from Rimac Automobili. This electric supercar is one of the best-looking EVs I’ve ever seen.
The Croation-born EV is now up for pre-sale with production set to start next year. Only 88 will be produced at a whopping $980,000 each. The car has electric motor for each individual wheel for a combined 1088 hp and 2800 pound-feet of torque. The car required specially designed tires to handle the massive power output.
The maker claims the car that hit 60 mph in 2.8 seconds on its way to the top speed of 190 mph. As fast as the car is, Rimac claims it’s good for 372 miles on a single charge, thanks to a battery pack that stores 92 kWh of energy. For nearly a million dollars, the Concept One had better live up to its promises.
