With the unveiling of the production version of the world’s first all-electric hypercar, the Concept_One, Rimac Automobili unleashed its evil twin, the radical Rimac Concept_S also at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday…

Like the Concept_One, Concept_S is exclusively electric, which enables stunning performance, better even than the Bugatti Chiron which was presented on Monday at the show. This car is designed for the racetrack, which is reflected in the aggressive design. The 1384 horsepower beast can do a top speed of 365 km / h with insane acceleration to 100 km / h in a mere 2.5 seconds, and to 200 km / h in 5.6 seconds.

To harvest the maximum potential of the R-AWTV_S system, the Concept_S introduces an extensive aerodynamic package that enhances the downforce over 30 percent and enables higher levels of grip.

An upgraded battery pack and optimised electronics, different carbon-fibre materials and lay-ups, track-oriented interior, less sound insulation and lighter seats, bring the weight down by substantial 50 kg. The reduced weight, combined with more torque, power, downforce and grip.

With Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires, the Concept_S gets even more grip on the four most important surfaces – the contact patches between the tire and the road. The bespoke Concept_S Torque Vectoring System makes sure the full potential of the tires is used when necessary.

Higher adhesive forces combined with extreme aerodynamic performance unlock a new dimension and an array of possibilities for the R-AWTV system. The R-AWTV_S system is optimised to harvest maximum grip and full power of the Concept_S.
