The $980,000 Rimac Concept One, the world’s fastest electric car with a weight of 1950kg, and 1088hp, the car can reach 100km/h in 2.8 seconds and continues to accelerate over 300km/h.  

The Concept One, the first car from virtual unknown manufacturer Rimac Automobili, styled by designer Adriano Mudri. The firm (which is Croatian, not Italian, by the way) has created this machine and given it four electric motors. They combine for an astounding 1,088 horsepower but, perhaps even more importantly, enable torque vectoring across all four wheels — varying the power at each corner to pull the car around turns.

That performance equates to a 0 – 62MPH time of 2.8 seconds, while the maximum range is rated as 600km (about 375 miles) thanks to a 92kWh lithium ion phosphate (LiFePO4) battery. It is, alas, just a concept for now, but with a little bit of funding the folks at Rimac hope to bring it to market. And we hope they do too.
