The Rimac Nevera hypercar has set a new world speed record for production electric cars. For the sake of this, it had to be sent to the oval of the German company Automotive Testing Papenburg, where Rimac test driver Miro Zrncevich was able to accelerate to 412 kilometers per hour. The testers had at their disposal the car itself, with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R tires homologated for public roads, and two four-kilometer straight sections.

Impressive results were obtained in Top Speed mode, which allows finding the optimal balance between low resistance and stability. Zrncewicz had already accelerated to 250 kilometers per hour at the exit of the curve, so it wasn't too difficult to catapult the Nevers to a maximum of four hundred.

The record was fixed with the Racelogic V-Box measuring complex, but another thing is interesting: back in 2018, this is the speed predicted by the simulation.

The Buckeye Bullet 3 had two electric motors on each axle, driving its wheel through a two-stage Hewland gearbox. Together with a traction battery of more than two megawatts, they developed a total of 3,000 horsepower.

The Rimac Nevera also uses four electric motors, although their combined output is lower - 1,914 horsepower and 2,360 Nm of torque. A 120-kilowatt-hour battery pack is integrated into the carbon fiber monocoque structure.

According to the passport, the Nevera accelerates from a place to a hundred in 1.97 seconds and to 300 kilometers per hour in 9.3 seconds.
