Croatian brand Rimac has set an impressive 23 speed and performance world records in one day with its electric hypercar Nevera. The 1 914-hp machine now holds the infamous 0-400-0 kph speed and braking record, which it did in only 29,93 seconds.
When the Croatian brand Rimac created the Nevera, it set out to build not only an electric hypercar but also the fastest hypercar in the world. In one day, the brain-child of founder Mate Rimac proved its worth by setting an impressive 23 speed and performance world records.
“Today, I am proud to say that the car we’ve created can get to 400 kph and back to 0 in less time than it took the McLaren F1 to accelerate up to 350 kph. And not only that, but it can do it again and again, breaking every other performance record in the process,” declared Rimac Automobili’s founder and CEO, Mate Rimac.
At the Automotive Testing Papenburg (ATP) in Germany, Rimac conducted its speed and performance tests, specifically on the 4,0 km straight. Dewesoft and RaceLogic independently verified all of them. During that record-breaking day, the Nevera outperformed its own official specifications, recording a 0-100 kph sprint of 1,82 seconds. All tests were done on street-legal Michelin Cup 2 R tires and on a non-prepped surface.
23 world records
In addition, the Rimac Nevera went on to set further records during the day, ending up totaling an impressive 23 world records. Among those, we can point out the already mentioned 0-400-0 kph, an extremely hard acceleration and braking test, which it did in 29,93 seconds.
The electric hypercar crossed the ¼ mile marker at 8,26 seconds and also broke the records for 0 to 200 kph (4,42 s), 0 to 300 kph (9,23 s), and 0 to 400 kph (21,32 s).
