Let’s say you built a $2.1 million supercar. What’s the first thing you would do? Slam it into a wall, naturally. Multiple times.
That’s exactly what Croatian automaker Rimac Automobili has been doing with its upcoming C_Two car.
And now you can see it on video.
To be street legal everywhere, the C_Two must pass a series of crash tests — just like most cars. There are differences, though. First of all, at $2.1 million (Mate Rimac, the CEO of Rimac Automobili, tells me the price of a prototype is even higher), this is a very expensive exercise. For a company like Volkswagen or Toyota, it’s business as usual, but for a small automaker like Rimac, it’s a big endeavor, which is why the company has put in a tremendous amount of effort in doing it right, both in the simulator and in reality.
The company documented the process in a video (above), culminating in the prototype slamming into walls and generally being abused. As Rimac Automobili puts it, some viewers may find the content disturbing (though perhaps not as disturbing as the crash of Rimac’s previous car, the Concept One, that occurred during an episode of The Grand Tour).
The C_Two has an advertised 1,914 horsepower, a 0-60 time of 1.85 seconds and a top speed of 258mph. Only 150 vehicles will be produced, with the deliveries scheduled to start next year.
