Two Rimac Hypercars Crash Tested - Each Worth $2,000,000

C_Two cars successfully completed the tests. Croatia-based Rimac has shared a video from internal crash tests of the C_Two electric hypercar, in which two 2,100,000-dollar prototypes were smashed at once.

In addition to the real tests, the engineers conducted virtual tests, separately checking the strength of a carbon fiber monocoque made. After that, the Croats started full testing the coupe.

The first of them was a head-on collision with a deformable barrier and 40% overlap at a speed of 40 km/h. Rimac was pleased with the result but admitted that the impact was “quite devastating” at this speed.

The second C_Two got a more difficult test: it was smashed against the same barrier but at a speed of 56 km/h. The test result also satisfied the engineers. Despite the serious deformation, the front part of the body was able to absorb the force of the impact and the risk to passengers was minimal – the sensors on the mannequins did not record excessive loads. Special concerns were caused by pedals that could shift and injure the driver's legs but they remained intact.

The Rimac C_Two is driven by four electric motors – one on each wheel. In total, they develop up to 1,914 hp and accelerate the coupe to 100 km/h in 1.97 seconds. The motors are powered by a 120-kWh battery pack built into a carbon fiber monocoque. The official all-electric range is 650 km (NEDC).

Earlier, Koenigsegg published a video on Instagram with crash tests of the Regera supercar, which costs even more than the electric Rimac, namely € 2.1 million. Thus, the company celebrated a million subscribers on Instagram.
