Rimac could be hinting at a new record
Rimac has posted new shots of its Nevera hypercar that set 23 new world records several days ago. The company never provided a reason for the posting, but CarBuzz believes it may have smashed through yet another record – this time at the legendary Nürburgring.
There is still no official information on whether any such record was set, but it makes sense for CEO Mate Rimac to believe in the potential of his only electric hypercar.
On the dreaded German racetrack, the absolute lap time record among production cars belongs to the Mercedes-AMG One and amounts to 6:35.183 seconds (long version of the track). The fastest EV on the North Loop is the Nio EP9, which is just around 10 seconds slower than the AMG One. The second and third places in the EV category are occupied by the Porsche Taycan Turbo S and the Tesla Model S Plaid.
If you look at the above list, you will see why it makes perfect sense for the Nevera to set a new high score. The Nio EP9 may have 1,360 PS (1,341 hp / 1,000 hp) at its disposal, but the Nevera blows it out of the water with 1,914 PS (1,888 hp / 1,408 kW).
Earlier in May, Rimac reported breaking 23 world speed records at an airfield strip in Europe (see video). Perhaps the most important result was achieved when the driver took the car from zero to 400 km/h (248 miles per hour) and then back to zero in 29.94 seconds.
