Rimac is a company that was able to surprise the entire sector after showing a prototype electric supercar, technically and aesthetically spectacular. Many took for granted that it would not go beyond a few car shows and then disappear, as has happened with so many others. startup. However, Rimac has managed to get ahead and after also positioning itself as a brand that supplies technology of all kinds to other manufacturers with Rimac Technology, The Croatian company is already celebrating the registration of its first unit of the Rimac Neverathe electric supercar with more than 1,900 CV.
One of the most important sections in the history of Rimac, and for which many knew her, was for the acquisition of the historic Bugatti, together with which she founded the Bugatti-Rimac binomial, with which they are already preparing to launch electric models of very high performance. Recently we were able to see under a careful cover that they already have some models prepared by both companies that will be presented publicly in the coming months.
Now, finally, Mate Rimac himself, CEO of the company, has published in their social networks that the first unit in the world of the Rimac Nevera has already been registered, a historical fact for a brand that few bet on in its beginnings. This starting point means that the electric supercar will officially begin production, estimated at just 150 units worldwide, which will be manufactured by hand in the facilities that the company owns in Sveta Nedelja, on the outskirts of Zagreb, in Croatia. The company has most of its offices and headquarters there where it can develop and innovate with this and other future models that are yet to come.
Mate Rimac himself assures in his publication that after 5 years of development of the model, more than 1,000 people immersed in the project, 17 prototypes produced, 45 crash tests where 9 vehicles were completely destroyed, as well as thousands of other development tests, today the first Fridge has finally been registered. These are important data for a new automobile brand that in its beginnings did not have the economic support of large groups.
The photos shared by the CEO of Rimac on his social networks present a Rimac Fridge decorated in a turquoise blue tone and brand new Croatian license plates, more specifically Zagreb, the country’s capital. This license plate has not been a random result, but its numbers and letters have a meaning with respect to the model itself. Ignoring the first two letters “ZG”, which refer to the capital city of Zagreb, the number and the letters that follow “2360 NM” specify the immense maximum torque that the model has, 2,360 Nm.
Mate Rimac has not published who will own this first unit, although all the voices point to himself as the owner of the car, although this is not revealed either in the post or in his comments. The same manager mentions that he is looking forward to seeing the next units manufactured parade through the streets of the Principality of Monaco, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, Japan or Canada, places where there is already the purchase of units by some of its inhabitants.
Let us remember that this model has some features of authentic hypercar. Its mechanics is 100% electric and emanates a maximum power of 1,914 hp. The specifications, of course, live up to expectations, as it runs from 0 to 100 km/h in 1.97 seconds and reaches a top speed of 412 km/h. Its battery has a capacity of 120 kWh and gives the vehicle a range of up to 550 kilometers, according to WLTP approval. Its sale price is above 2 million euros.
