Since its launch in 2021, the all-electric Rimac Nevera has hit the hypercar world like a storm it is named after – and for good reason. With an impressive 1,914 horsepower and acceleration from 0-100 km/h in just 1.85 seconds, this beautiful machine not only keeps the highest EV speed recordbut also outperforms its petrol counterparts.
Now the Nevera has reached a new milestone: it is broken 23 performance records claiming the title of the ‘ultimate record-breaking hypercar’ in one day. The tests were conducted at the Automotive Testing Papenburg (ATP) facility in Germany and were independently verified by third-party companies Dewesoft and RaceLogic.
Leading the EV’s onslaught was the 0-400-0km/h run, the ultimate test of straight-line hypercar performance, combining acceleration, aerodynamics, top speed and stopping power. The Nevera accelerated from 0 km/h to 400 km/h and came to a stop again in 29.93 seconds – more than a second faster than the previous record holder, the Konigsegg Regera.
In practice, the Nevera has broken most existing acceleration records. It did 0-200 km/h in 4.42 seconds, went on to 300 km/h in 9.22 seconds and reached 400 km/h in 21.31 seconds. The hypercar even outperformed itself clocking in at 1.81 seconds for 0-60mph – four seconds faster than official acceleration specs. Not to mention breaking 23 records in a day is a record in itself.
Below is the full list of benchmarks:
Behind its success lies Rimac’s in-house technology, including the Nevera’s aerodynamic design, powertrain, battery system and software.
To name the most essential specs, the Croatian-made EV comes with a 120kWh battery pack and uses four electric motors – one for each wheel – producing an impressive 1.4MW of power. It also features a top-class regenerative braking system paired with 390mm Brembo CCMR carbon-ceramic discs and six-piston calipers.
“I’m proud to say that the car we’ve made can go to 400km/h in less time and back to 0 in less time than it took the McLaren F1 to accelerate to 350km/h,” says Mate Rimac, founder and CEO of the company. , said in one rack. “And not only that, but it can do it over and over again, breaking every other performance record in the process. If you had a Nevera and access to a job, you could do it too.
Rimac will only make 150 Neveras, so if you want to feel the power of this breathtaking car, you better act fast. You’ll also have to pay an estimated €2 million to buy it, but that’s a pretty fair price for breaking recreational records.
