He has taken on Ferrarri, Tesla and Porsche, and now Croatian electric supercar maker Mate Rimac has tested his Concept_One against a Bugatti Veyron.

Rimac recently invited the founder of the UK firm Wilton Classic & Supercar, the Earl of Pembroke, to go ‘head to head’ with him in his Veyron on a chilly morning on the Croatian coast.

The 1,480 horsepowered Bugatti Veyron against 1,088 electron-induced horsepowered Concept_One.

The original Bugatti Veyron has a top speed of 407 km/h and was named Car of the Decade by the BBC’s Top Gear.

The Super Sport version of the Veyron is recognised by Guinness World Records as the fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a top speed of 431.072 km/h.

“This car is extremely quick. It has to be the future of not only road cars, but race cars especially”, Lord Pembroke says after getting behind the wheel of Rimac’s machine.

Check out the video as Rimac and Lord Pembroke test out the two supercars on the Croatian coastal road.
