Frankfurt debuts: Rimac Concept
Rimac Automobili has officially unveiled the Concept_One, which will debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
This electric supercar weighs in at 3,637 lbs and produces 1,088-hp. That allows the Rimac Concept_One to go from 0 to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 190 mph. On a full charge, the Concept_One is capable of driving up to 373 mph. Each wheel can accelerate or decelerate independently hundreds of times per second. Sophisticated ECUs control each of the power system, using the input of precise sensors placed all over the car.

To create a luxurious interior, Rimac enlisted Vilner and a group of former Pininfarina employees. The end result is pretty impressive as the cabin is elegantly appointed with premium leather, carbon fiber trim, a digital instrument cluster and an advanced infotainment system. The 2013 Lexus GS 450h Hybrid is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 engine mated to a compact, high-output, water-cooled permanent magnet electric motor. The two powerplants drive the rear wheels both independently and in tandem, as needed. Together, the unit produces an nice 338 horsepower, allowing for a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.6 seconds with a top speed of 131 mph.
