The Rimac Nevera is one of the fastest electric cars out there. The hypercar also has the record of being the fast production car on earth today. Today, we have a video of the car cruising on the famed German Autobahn.
Rimac Nevera on unrestricted public road
At first, the driver of the car does a couple of 62-124 mph runs. Despite cold tires, the Nevera does pretty good on all the runs. The best amongst it was a 2.8-second run, which is even faster than the Bugatti Chiron.
Then, the all-electric car was put through its paces on the highway. Despite having no speed limit, the Autobahn is a public road at the end of the day, which means there are other road users. The driver then tries to hit the maximum speed possible in the given traffic conditions. The best top speed recorded was 216 mph or a whooping 348 km/h. These numbers are frankly quite astounding and yet as seen in the video, the Rimac Nevera makes it a piece of cake.
Rimac Nevera’s recorded top speed
Under the the supervision of team technicians, Rimac allows the Nevera’s limited to be removed in case of special events. The standard Nevera is meanwhile restricted to 219 mph. A while back, the Croatian carmaker did a speed run of the Rimac at the Automotive Testing Papenburg in Germany. In this instance, the engineers removed the limiter. The car was piloted none other than the chief test and development driver at Rimac – Miro Zrnvevic.
With Zrnvevic, the car touched 256 mph, making it the fastest production EV in the world. The record-breaking car was stock and Rimac had equipped it with road-legal Cup 2 R tires.
Powertrain of the Rimac Nevera
The Nevera is fitted with four electric motors. These have a combined total output of 1,914 horsepower and 1,696 lb-ft of torque. Rimac claims it can accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than 2.4 seconds. Earlier, the carmaker had claimed a top speed of 258 mph, which now seems doable.
