Electric motors are not new, but Rimac has taken the technology beyond other manufacturers with its powertrain architecture. It uses each motor as a sub-system with its own inverter and gearbox to create four control systems making hundreds of adjustments every second. The result is a unique experience in driving.
The Concept_One battery system delivers 1 megawatt of power when accelerating, and can absorb 400 kilowatt during braking. It uses a liquid temperature management system and low-resistance conductors, both unique for this system. The result is a battery which will perform well in track conditions requiring high power delivery and safety.
The performance of this powertrain design is amazing; 1180 lb-ft of torque, top speed 220 mph, 1224 horsepower, 0-62 mph in 2.5 seconds!
Exterior surfaces of the Concept_One are all carefully designed both for aesthetics and performance. Every air intake and body shape balances efficiency and maximum performance potential. LED headlights are not only functional but provide a beautiful visual line, and include a ventilation system to maintain clear projection. Mono-block 20-inch rims are milled from forged aluminum alloy and use carbon ceramic brake discs. The wheels are connected to a 400 kilowatt regenerative braking system which recharges the battery. The rear lights are multi-functional as they also hide integrated cooling tunnels taking heat from the rear radiators into the low-pressure area behind the vehicle.
Moving to the cockpit, the driver is placed low and near the center of gravity in the vehicle and is wrapped in bespoke leather and Alcantara seats with precise stitching. Steering is electro-hydraulic and works in harmony with the torque vectoring system. The center console controls are all machined from solid metal blocks and incorporate hundreds of parts similar to the finest watch. The controls are the interface between the driver and the Concept_One systems including torque vectoring and regenerative braking. The audio system is carefully engineered to fill the vehicle with incredible sound of crystal-clear clarity and power. The infotainment system is customizable to offer telemetry data with graphs and graphics, the state of the vehicle, and multiple other functions. In addition, the vehicle can send over 500 system points to the M2M system loaded on a smartphone for real-time analysis or storage of past performance.
The Rimac Concept_One is a handcrafted elegant supercar made with painstaking detail in every aspect of its production. Thousands of parts are manufactured for each vehicle; even the tools, jigs, and molds are produced in-house. If you are ready to experience the extraordinary luxury and performance of the Rimac Concept_One, come to Manhattan Motorcars Chelsea and let us show you this unique vehicle which redefines an advanced supercar of the future.
