We have arrived at episode three of 4 for Rimac’s in-depth facility tour, and this one focuses on how the agency designs its supercars.
To this point, the agency has revealed two fashions to the world: the Concept_One and the C_Two. Within the newest video, CEO and founder Mate Rimac takes us by means of the design and engineering division the place the ultimate touches are underway for the C_Two—a 1,914-horsepower electrical hypercar. Right here, Mr. Rimac says the crew will get the final 5, 10, or 15 p.c wanted to name a design full. We see quite a few simulations of the C_Two on laptop screens the place the corporate runs the automotive’s precise software program within the digital world.

This tells staff how the automotive will behave in varied conditions with out constructing real-world prototypes to check elements and programs. For instance, one particular person within the automobile dynamic’s crew runs a simulation to grasp the C_Two’s torque vectoring system.
There are additionally groups for inside trims, physique, electrical structure, and extra for security and crash testing. Should you thought constructing vehicles, let alongside $2 million hypercars, was simple, assume once more.

In one other space, the crew designs and engineers elements as a part of Rimac’s provider enterprise. The corporate at present provides batteries for Koenigsegg and it’ll function a provider for the Aston Martin Valkyrie supercar as properly. Pininfarina most not too long ago named Rimac because the powertrain provider for its personal electrical hypercar. All of this work on powertrains, batteries, and even infotainment options takes place on the higher flooring.
The four-part video collection is supposed to have fun Rimac’s accomplishments to this point because it prepares to maneuver to a newly constructed facility constructed from the bottom up. There, the way forward for Rimac will unfold, however Mr. Rimac by no means forgets the place he got here from: a small storage.
