Fastest electric Supercar Rimac Concept One

Monterey Car Week is the largest gathering of beautiful cars; classic and new; expensive rebuilt and protected patina cars. Quail Lodge is a collection of all the supercars and bespoke supercars. The crowd roars when they hear a Koenigsegg come to life. You hear the car; you smell the exhaust, the condensation coming out of the exhaust, the heat as the car comes alive, you know you are in the exclusive extravagant world of supercars.

There is one car that excites without the noise and the exhaust. The Rimac Concept_One is the fastest electric Supercar in the World. This all-electric supercar was known only to the rich and famous before Top Gear’s overzealous Richard Hammond crashed the $1 million Rimac Concept_One in Switzerland, an electric super car built in Croatia.

The Rimac Concept One is an electric hypercar with 1,224 horsepower, 1,200 lb-ft torque. The lightweight hybrid battery system is also used in the Koenigsegg Regera and the Aston Martin Valkyrie.

Rimac will be making another vehicle; we called it Concept two. There were supposed to be eight made, but now there will be seven, because of the Richard Hammond accident.
