A brief overview of the Rimac C Two
The Rimac C Two was announced at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.Much like the new Roadster it it will start shipping in 2020.Rimac Plan to produce 150 Cars.The price of the new Rimac is 1,795,532 euros and it has already sold out.The new rimac sold out almost 3 weeks after launch.Rimac claim that the C Two can be charged to 80% in 30 minutes.The exterior designer of this Rimac is a Croatian born Austrian named Adriano Mudri.Rimac say that the C Two will go 0-60 in 1.85 seconds and that its top speed is is 258 mph.The range on the Rimac C Two is around 400 miles(650 km).
The first thing i would like to compare is the price of these cars.Now the Rimac C Two is clearly the most expensive out of the two coming in at over a million pounds and the tesla roadster at around $200,000 dollars.The Next thing is the 0-60 time, the Rimac does it in 1.85 seconds and the Tesla Roadster 2.0 does it in 1.9 seconds,this make the rimac the winner of this test by 5 milliseconds.The next comparison is range,The tesla roadster has a range of about 620 miles(1,000 km) and the Rimac has a range of about 400 miles(650 km).So if you're looking for an electric supercar with good range get the new Tesla Roadster.The final thing to compere is top speed, the Rimac C Two has a top speed of 258 mph where as the new roadster has a top speed of 250 mph.
My Final Thoughts
My final thoughts are the Tesla Roadster is a better car.It's not that much different to the Rimac C Two as there acceleration is very close and there top speed's too.The one thing I think is definitely better about the Tesla is the range,using the Tesla you'll get much more time on the road.
