The young Croatian company Rimac—manufacturers of super electric cars—presented its new sports model, the Concept S, at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-60 mph) in just 2.5 seconds, and reach a top speed of 365 km/h (227 mph) with an incredible force of 1,384 HP.
CEO Mate Rimac is an engineer who has drawn the attention of the automotive world since a young age. When he was only 18 years old, he built — in his garage— the BMW E30 electric, which became the fastest eco-car in the world.
A remarkable professional growth and invaluable experience led him to create his automotive company, and in 2011 he introduced the Concept One, which continues to amaze for its impressive performances and range of 600 km (372 m).
