More success for Croatian entrepreneur Mate Rimac and his firm Rimac Automobili.
Rimac, who has been one of Croatia’s recent success stories, develops and produces high-performance electric vehicles, including the Concept One, the world’s first electric super car, drivetrains and battery systems.
This week British luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin announced that Rimac Automobili will be one of their key technical partners for AM-RB 001, the hypercar they are working on with Red Bull Racing.
“Aston Martin, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and project partner AF Racing today confirm some of the key technical partners for AM-RB 001”, Aston Martin said in a statement, before going on to announce.
“Not content with commissioning the ultimate road-legal internal combustion engine, the AM-RB 001 also boasts a lightweight hybrid battery system supplied by Rimac. Acknowledged as world-leaders in high-performance battery technology, the Croatian-based company has showcased its capabilities with the innovative Concept-One: the world’s first – and fastest – all-electric hypercar.”
Mate Rimac said that the partnership was a ‘big deal’ for his company but would make an official statement shortly regarding the deal.
“6.5-litre V12 from Cosworth, battery from Rimac: here are Aston’s technical partners,” Rimac wrote on his Facebook page.
