The $2.2 million Rimac Nevera just set 23 land speed records in one day
The Rimac Nevera is the fastest production car in the world…in pretty much every way.
The $2.2 million electric car set 23 acceleration and braking records in a single day on April 30 at a test track in Germany.
The 1,914 hp Nevera sprinted to 60 mph in 1.74 seconds, beating the 1.79-second mark set by the Pininfarina Battista last year, which is based on the same battery-powered platform.
It also covered a quarter mile in 8.25 seconds and a half mile in 12.82 seconds, the latter being about as fast as covering the distance in free fall.

His braking skills were demonstrated with a sprint from 0 mph to 249 mph and back to 0 mph, which he completed in 29.93 seconds, more than a second faster than the previous record.
The Nevera had already secured the title of the fastest electric car in the world with a certified 258 miles per hour last year.
Rimac based in Croatia established a joint venture with Bugatti in 2021 and focuses on high-end hypercars.

Company founder Mate Rimac said of the Nevera’s achievements: “Growing up I always looked to the cars that made history and pushed the performance bar, in awe of the kind of revolutionary technology they brought to the road . That’s what drives me from day one – to develop new technologies that redefine what’s possible.”
“When we first started developing the Nevera, our performance goals were incredibly ambitious, and now we’ve managed to exceed all of those goals.”
