From sister site Gas2:

Right now the Rimac Concept_One electric supercar is on a tour of the Middle East, and to prove its worth, Rimac set up an impromptu drag race. With a Ferrari. Bet you know where this is going.

With four electric motors producing a combined 1,073 horsepower and 1,180 ft-lbs of torque, the Rimac Concept_One is one of the most powerful vehicles in the world, gas or electric. With a 0-60 mph time of just 2.8 seconds and a silent-but-deadly powertrain, the Concept_One is currently showcasing its capabilities to the sheiks and oil barons of the Middle East.

Anyway, those are just numbers and words; this video of the Rimac Concept_One crushing a Ferrari 458 Spider in an impromptu drag race is something else:

Gas2 closes with this line: “Electric supercars may soon displace Ferraris and Lambos as the chariot of choice for the wealthiest among us, and Rimac is positioning itself as a literal leader in pure electric speed for a new century.”

The rise of electric supercars like the Concept_One is certainly a bit exciting. I’m not sure how much I’d enjoy driving these cars, but it’s definitely fun reading, watching, and writing about them. 😉
