Croatian sports car maker Rimac has officially unveiled the production version of its Concept Two (C-Two) electric hypercar, the Nevera. The car has a tremendous amount of power and features in the car, and considering the $2 million price tag, it makes sense.

Mate Rimac, founder and CEO of Rimac Automobili, stated: “This is it. This is the car I had in mind when I embarked on the ‘impossible’ journey ten years ago. All our hard work has resulted in the Nevera, our record-breaking hypercar. This car was born to outperform and to raise the bar and redefine the standard for performance cars. Not just in performance, but as a total package. When we first unveiled the C_Two, we introduced “Our goals were extremely high. There was nothing even close to the state-of-the-art electric powertrain and the extreme performance of the car. But for us that was just the starting point.”
The interior features a large touchscreen and plenty of buttons and knobs, offering a blend of modern while retaining many classic physical controls. There are rumors that the hypercar will have a facial recognition scanner that will unlock the vehicle’s ignition (although you’ll still have a physical key, don’t worry). The scanner will also reportedly be able to tell what mood you’re in to better determine whether you’re in the mood for a leisurely ride or a fast-paced adventure.
An upcoming feature called Driver Coach will add AI in addition to the car’s 12 ultrasonic sensors, 13 cameras and six radar units to provide assistance while driving. However, that feature will not be ready until 2022. Apart from that, the Nevera has fully independent torque control on each wheel and intelligent traction control. It also brings his Level 4 self-driving autonomy at the table
Mate Rimac also said he plans to personally test and sign off each Nevera made before it is delivered to the customer. The hypercar can go from 0-60 in a blazing fast 1.85 seconds, surpassing the Tesla Roadster’s 1.9 seconds. It has a top speed of 258 mph, and while it doesn’t come close to Tesla’s 600-mile range, it does offer plenty of luxurious details to compensate.
And since it’s going to cost about 10 times more than the Tesla Roadster – for a whopping $2.44 million – rest assured that luxury is what you’ll get…if you can get it. Only 150 models of the Nevera will be produced.
