Seven years ago at the Salon Privé event in London, Croatian electric hypercar manufacturer Rimac shook up the industry with its 913kW (1,241hp) Concept One machine. Well, now the company is back with its latest EV, which it will again reveal at the 2019 Salon Privé in September. And this thing, called the C_Two, is only the 'fastest-accelerating hypercar' yet built, according to its maker - a claim we won't refute because, installed in a carbon-fibre body, is a 120kWh battery pack powering four electric motors (one on each wheel). These, between them, cook up 1.4MW of power. That's 1,408kW to be precise, which further translates into a mind-bending 1,888hp backed up by 2,300Nm of instant torque. Thus, the C_Two will run 0-60mph in 1.85 seconds, 0-100mph in 4.3 seconds and can hit 186mph from a standing start in a ridiculous 11.8 seconds. A top speed of 258mph is none too shabby, either. Following its debut at Salon Privé, customer deliveries are expected in 2020, with company founder Mate Rimac saying: "We are very excited to be back at Salon Privé, celebrating automotive history and bringing a taste of the future. In 2012, Rimac Concept One - the world's first all-electric supercar - made its debut at Salon Privé [and that] seems light years away. This time around, we will join with our new generation, the Rimac C_Two - the fastest-accelerating, most exciting and most technologically advanced hypercar ever built."
