Rimac C Two – Stiff Competition for the New Tesla Roadster

Rimac C Two

Rimac C Two Debuts at the 2018 Geneva Auto Show

The Rimac Concept One EV Supercar is widely considered one of the best EV Supercars in a long line of industry favorites, so the follow up EV has been hotly anticipated. The Rimac C Two debuted at the Geneva Auto Show this month and it did not disappoint. Far from it, this Supercar EV builds upon the Concept One’s technology to produce the next generation of ingenuity by Rimac Automobili.

Rimac C Two Stats

Though Rimac only made 8 Concept Ones (there are only 7 in existence, Concept One Crash), they plan to step things up with the C Two and produce 150 of these. Here is a comparison of the Rimac Concept One, the C Two and the Tesla Roadster.

Beyond the Stats – The C Two vs Tesla Roadster

Though the stats between the Rimac C Two and the Tesla Roadster seem comparable, Rimac is known for meticulous detail in manufacturing and design. The Concept One for example, is unmatched in handling among even gas powered Supercar greats and filled with state of the art forward thinking mechanics. We’re all aware of Tesla’s impressive reputation in the EV market, however, if I had to guess at which car handles better I would go with the C Two.
