The Croatian electric hypercar Rimac C Two in the near future may get a more extreme and track-oriented option. A nimble and lightweight car will allow the company to claim the Nurburgring record, which currently belongs to the prototype Volkswagen ID.R.

In an interview with Top Gear, Rimac head Mate Rimac made it clear that a track modification of the 1900-hp C Two hypercar was introduced. Today, the car, according to him, it was decided to make the most reliable and suitable for everyday use. Therefore, in the development process, they came to the decision not to refuse, for example, from electric seats and ordinary road tires.

Some details about C Two for the track Rimatz did not report. Most likely, it will be an easy version of the coupe, devoid of most of the excesses unnecessary on the highway in the form of an audio system and door panels. The maximum power of power units can also increase, which, in total with the lightest batteries, will give a significant increase in dynamics. However, even now, C Two needs less than 2 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h, and the efficiency of the battery cooling system is much more important for the track.

The Rimac C Two development program went into the final stage. After a series of simulations in a virtual environment, the hypercar drove to the proving ground of the Nardo Technical Center in Italy. There are plans to test other well-known tracks, but the Nurburgring is not among them. Will present a serial two-door at the Geneva Motor Show in the spring of 2020. In addition, C Two will acquire a completely different name, but the company has not yet figured out which one.
