The Rimac Nevera is a monster of a hypercar, arguably the world’s best right now. Judging by the way the car just managed to rack up a total of 23 performance records in a single test session, it’s going to be a set of records that surely won’t be easy to beat. The Rimac Nevera is a fully electric hypercar that features a dual-motor setup (one at each end of the car driving the associated wheels) each producing 470 kW with 900 Nm of torque, and with a complex web of in-house developed electronic control units and an NVIDIA Pegasus-based supercomputer in control, collectively known as Rimac All-Wheel Torque Vectoring 2, all that power can be used to perfection. The car is an actual production car, 150 of these hypercars will eventually be out in the wild, but that’s more than enough models for it to be classed as a production car. “When we set out to engineer the Nevera, our performance targets were incredibly ambitious, and we’ve now managed to overshoot all of those. What I’m most proud of though, is that this isn’t a car purely designed for straight-line performance. The Nevera can go from breaking records to driving over 300 miles on a charge, refilling from 0-80% in less than 20 minutes and keeping the most demanding drivers in the world engaged. The Nevera is a fully rounded next-generation hypercar that has been praised time and again by the world’s media for reinventing the world of performance. Not just faster than traditional competitors, but, surprising for a fully electric car, engaging and capable too.” says Mate Rimac, founder and CEO of RIMAC AUTOMOBILI.

Thanks to hypercars like the Bugatti Veryron and Chiron, a new test parameter had to be set up, and that was to test the car’s acceleration from a standstill to 400 km/h and back to zero again. The Chiron had the record at 42 seconds, which was snatched away by the Koenigsegg Regera at just over 31 seconds, and is now owned by the Rimac Nevera with a mind-bending 29.93 seconds – over a second quicker. While doing this longer section of testing, the times and distances are broken down more and in the smaller measured increments, the car runs a clean sweep of records too, 22 over and above the main record. The records were set at the Automotive Testing Papenburg facility in Germany, the perfect spot thanks to its nice and long 4.0km straights. The performance figures were independently verified by RaceLogic and Dewesoft who had on-site teams to support the testing The Rimac Nevera even outperformed its own official specifications, shaving 9 seconds off the claimed 0-60 mph taking it from 1.85 seconds to 1.74 . All the acceleration records were completed with a standard 1ft rollout and the car was fitted with street-legal Michelin Cup 2 R tyres on regular non-prepped tarmac. The 0 -100 km/h came in at 1.82 seconds, 0 - 200 km/h in just 4.42 seconds (faster than my car to 100 km/h, by a fair margin) and just 4.42 seconds to 300 km/h. That’s ridiculous, just completely ridiculous. Check out the list of records now owned by the Nevera.

Take a look at the YouTube video from the day the Rimac Nevera hypercar was tested at 10/10ths and it set a whopping total of 22 performance-oriented records in the braking and acceleration stakes. This car is now the fastest. Just the fastest, that's all you need to know. It's insane what production cars can do these days, even if they cost as much as a small country's national debt: Bending Physics: Rimac Nevera Smashes 23 Performance World Records | RimacAutomobili
