I feel that gov shouldn't force EV's, emission regulation, or sound. EV's bad for environment because of mining for lithium and cobalt. Emission regulations require catalytic converters (bad for environment) and other measure the causes decreased fuel efficiency, sound regulators like resonators or cats reduce fuel efficiency. forget about regulations let ppl drive their cars.
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? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZVd7Oo2KHg
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!”
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.
