Rimac has posted that the 8.99 1/4 mile was with 85-90% max torque and he did run 8.94 @ 159mph without launch control in subsequent runs so with max torque and launch control we'll see an even more amazing time..

It appears we have Rimac C Two dragy acceleration figures 8.99 @ 154 mph although he backed off at the 8.2-8.3 sec mark just before the 1/4 mile hence why it could've run 8.8 sec at over 160mph. The other question is was Rimac using full power?

150mph in 7.59s. That’s just... dayum
And that’s with an passenger too
SpeedKing 3w ago @Cocobe
So how quick will the Evija be with 270kg less and with much the same power? I am looking forward to seeing if they can do under 9 sec for 0-300 km/h but i suspect it'll be just under 10 sec.

Also 2 passengers in a random day
I'm sure it can do an 8.7 at best
SpeedKing 3w ago @Lambolover
Impressive but i'll take a twin turbo Performante any day....
Lambolover 3w ago @SpeedKing
Well that makes the two of us :))

It's probably a pre production prototype still. There's quite a few. I've calculated 0-300km/h and benchmarked it to and I got 11.19 seconds. In gear times are faster than a Bugatti Chiron too. It's a remarkably smooth introduction!
SpeedKing 3w ago @ChironSS
Rumour has it that the Rimac was running on 85% power so about 1650hp. If that's the case we can expect 8.4 sec@170mph with full power..
Cocobe 3w ago @SpeedKing
I’d take the regular unmodified Performante :)

Starting to think battery-driven cars should be excluded from these type of lists. Without feeling the power and hearing the roar of a combustion engine, you’re just removing 99% of the satisfaction and thrill of driving a “car!”

Interesting interview with Mate Rimac who is quite the achiever. He says that battery density per kg has only increased about 10% between state of art in 2010 and 2020 which leaves me a bit puzzled.

Am I the only person that thinks Hydrogen powered cars are a better alternative to EVs?

Out of all of these electric hyper cars, Roman gives the most specs. I respect that.

still waiting for the roadcar that does 0-500kph in less than 4 seconds

Something tells me this could attempt and take the production car record around the Nur. Especially as the release info stated it could do two laps “with a neglible drop in performance”...
Koenigsegg did also similarly state that a lap record attempt was also on the cards. Seems quite feasible both manufacturers will take records for EV and petrol (because the Regera just can't put its power down, too much instant torque), though I wouldn't know who to put a wager on...

Probably the most insane all-electric hypercar. Faster than the >2 tons heavy Tesla Roadster, which won't come before 2020. But when it comes to acceleration, a Mercedes-AMG Project One with less than 11s on 0-300 kph will be quicker.

0-100kph is claimed at 1.85, albeit with a USA drag race style one foot rollout.

wow that horsepower figure
