Rimac Nevera is a low volume production car created as a iteration of the Rimac C_Two concept car, unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2018. Rimac’s engineers have improved their new flagship on every level during an extensive development program, in the pursuit of the ultimate electric hypercar driving experience. The Rimac Nevera has a proud Croatian name and one that truly reflects the prodigious performance the car can unleash in the blink of an eye. The name given by the locals to a quick, unexpected and mighty Mediterranean storm, that races across the open sea off Croatia, a nevera is extremely powerful and charged by lightning. We found a comprehensive list of changes to the Nevera’s bodywork, air diffusers and intakes has delivered a 34 per cent improvement in aerodynamic efficiency over the early prototypes. The profile of the bonnet, the shape of the pillars and the design of the diffusers, splitters and radiators have all been intensively analysed and refined to improve airflow and downforce
Rimac has also created many innovative active aerodynamic components to improve Nevera's cooling, performance, stability and efficiency capabilities. The front hood profile, underbody flaps, rear diffuser and rear wing can all move independently. This is driven by sophisticated algorithms that provide the best aerodynamic configuration for each driving situation.
The lightweight forged aluminum alloy wheels have a unique aerodynamic design, which can guide the cooling air to the Brembo carbon ceramic brake system and ensure a smooth air flow out of the side of the car.
Thank to his innovative carbon fibre monocoque the Rimac Nevera weighs less than 200 kilograms, and it form a compact and strong structure with a torsional stiffness of 70.000 Nm/degree.
Every component of it has been thoroughly reworked to provide greater torque, higher performance and higher efficiency. Rimac redesigned a unique liquid-cooled 120kWh battery, capable of generating 1.4MW of power. The optimal positioning of the battery low and in the center of the car floor helps to achieve an ultra-low center of gravity. This helps to create excellent 48/52 front and rear weight distribution and achieve a great handling balance.
Four customized surface-mounted permanent magnet motors drive the four wheels of Rimac Nevera. Together they provide 1914hp and 2360Nm of torque. The front and rear wheels are respectively connected to a pair of single-speed gearboxes.
Rimac Nevera is able to sprint to 100km/h in 1.85 seconds and continue the acceleration to his 258mph top speed, achieving 186mph from rest in 9,3 seconds. Rimac’s All-Wheel Torque Vectoring system replaces traditional Electronic stability and Traction control systems to further grip and traction. The Nevera is also fitted with cutting-edge braking technology. A complex electro-hyrdaulic brake booster with brake pedal feel simulator distributes the braking force between the friction brakes and electric powertrain. Rimac Nevera is equipped with 390 mm Brembo carbon-ceramic brake discs and six-piston callipers.
