Rimac concept one: The Killer Supercar!

Rimac is the Croatian electric sports car manufacturer since 2009. Rimac-Automobili is a private company founded by Mate Rimac. The company’s first model is Rimac Concept One. The Concept one is world’s fastest production electric car. The company founded as a hobby but later marked its presence with unmatched performance and design. During initial times, the performance parts and electric systems were not available in the market. So, the company invented them on its own.

Rimac Concept One: Performance rediscovered

Concept one is designed ground up. So, it has superior performance with advanced technology. Rimac utilizes Torque vectoring technique. Torque vectoring is a technology that independently controls individual wheels. Specifically, during tight turns, wheels tend to slow down speed due to traditional gear systems. In torque vectoring, each wheel is independent. Hence, there is no compromise in speed.

The all-new power-train architecture is unique on its own. The system consists of the separate power-train, gearbox, motor and independent inverter for each wheel. The uniqueness of the power-train helps in controlling individual wheel hundreds of times per second in both directions. As a result, you will get unique driving experience never seen before.

The Rimac Concept One features the state of the art high-density motors. The motors are 90% efficient with full torque at zero speed.  As a result, the motors give instant feedback.  Each individual motor couples with the proprietary gearbox. Front wheels have single speed gearboxes while rear wheels have really something unique. Both rear motors are attached to the two-speed double-clutch gearbox.

The battery system delivers 1MW of power during acceleration and absorbs 400kw during braking. Rimac designed the battery system keeping in mind the race-track use with proper safety standards. Low resistance conducting system along with liquid thermal management delivers unmatched power.

The exteriors of the car are truly aerodynamic. All surfaces are designed in such a way that they will balance performance and efficiency.  Every line going from outer surface serves two purposes - elegance and functionality. The high power LEDs are directed by ECU units. LEDs also have a unique aerodynamic design which enhances the visibility and sharp projections.
