The Rimac Automobili Concept One is the stunningly beautiful and ridiculously fast million-dollar electric supercar that hails from the country of Croatia. It’s been on a world tour as of late, and as one might expect the engineering minds behind the Concept One haven’t been idle. Their next project, the world’s “most advanced electric bicycle”, isn’t quite what I expected.
Rimac has not released any details on the Greyp Bike, save for this website, a silhouette, and a statement saying “The World’s Most Advanced Electric Bicycle, Coming From The Minds Behind The Fastest Electric Supercar.” The big debut is set for London’s Salon Privé in early September.
Electric bicycles are all the rage across Asia, and they’re starting to catch on in Europe and America too (despite New York City’s silly ban on e-bikes). It’ll be interesting to see what Rimac comes up with, and if it’ll actually be affordable, or just another sexy-but-too-expensive EV teaser.
