How they designed the Rimac C_Two

How do you surpass one of the fastest electric hypercars of all time? Wind, lots of wind. Rimac makes it look easy when they showed off the new C-Two, earlier this year. But how do you make something that is even more insane than the Concept one? Rimac is happy to show us.

Show off...

Rimac is incredibly hi-tech in the motoring industry, computer models and coding have been so close to the real car, it makes you wonder if they are wizards or something. Pairing CFD Simulations (computational fluid dynamics) with real clay models have created the shape we know today.

There is a lot more though than just pretty curves and aero scoops. They test the aerodynamics of the C_Two in a Wind tunnel owned by the University of Rijeka, in which the supercomputer has 7000 cores for channelling data at high speeds. An average gaming computer has 8 cores. BURA, as it is called can calculate 70 million divided sectors over the body of the car, creating some really details reports.

You can watch more about these tests and how they go from drawings on paper to the end result, ready for the track for the real test - The open road.

Figures for your fancy...

Rimac flaunted a shocking set of numbers at us, during the Geneva motor show this year. According to Rimac, the C_Two four electric motors can create and use 1,887bhp, a 0-60mph time of 1.97 seconds and a top speed of 258mph. This though can be meaningless, as tests are still ongoing, it may be even scarier than we ever thought. I mean, look at the Concept one...

Roll on 2020... Never know, I might get to test one by then...

  • Whoa! That's hella more complicated than I thought...

    I thought they just looked at the c_1 and thought to themselves, how do we make this Hammond-proof...
